  1. Hi guys,
    I would really appreciate any help.

    So while loading windows 7 I end up with a BSOD with an 0x7e error with 100% physical dump memory.

    After spending 5 hours looking through forums, I noticed I have a special BSOD case.

    After moving my PC from room to room, the CPU fan connector got disconnected (Antec H2o water cooler) and when I started up my pc after 5 minutes I got Blue screen then a overheated cpu message.

    After checking my temperatures, my CPU/ Motherboard heatsinks and CPU radiator were extremely hot!
    I noticed the fan connection, then rebooted.. I still got the CPU overheated message, so I waiting 20 minutes for it to cool down.

    Now every boot up, at windows 7 loading screen I get the BSOD 0x7e message.
    and I cannot do anything.

    ps. I am not to worried about Cpu damage, becuase I know my sabertooth 58x and intel i7 has a temp fail safe.

    Im thinking this has affected my drivers somehow?

    Things I have done
    - I cant get into windows even in safe mode.
    - I have disconnected all usb connections
    - I have run windows repair
    - I have reset bios defaults
    - I notice CPU is still registered with temp/fan monitors
    - motherboard seems to run fine. (can maintain long periods at windows repair screen)
    - GPU display port changed slots
    - Crashes before boot log in

    I think this has effected my C drive some how?\

    In addition,

    I get this BSOD as well sometimes which is weird.
    "Ntfs.sys - Address FFFFF880012AE1A8 base at FFFFF88001223000, DateStamp 5167f5fc"

    Kind regards

    This bsod indicates hard drive issues, but because of the extreme overheating any part including the motherboard could be damaged

    So I have tested both hard drives on other computers and they both work fine.

    If this is heat damage, how can I be 100% sure before spending heaps of money on a new MB/CPU?

    "After checking my temperatures, my CPU/ Motherboard heatsinks and CPU radiator were extremely hot!"... This says it all
