BSOD Help - 3B error - Dual monitors

  1. Hello,

    I've been having BSOD's 3B error since I moved to dual monitors.

    i7 @ 4.6 GHz
    Corsair Vengeance Blue 16 GB DDR3 SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B
    ENGTX480/2DI/1536MD5 - latest driver Geforce 332.21
    2 x SSD PX-128M5P RAID0 for system - Win7 x64

    temps [ÂșC]:
    CPU = 38, MB = 37

    Medium load:
    CPU = 45, MB = 37

    Full load (rendering and exporting videos):
    CPU = 72, MB = 41

    OC was stable up to some weeks, I believe CPU might have degraded a bit. Once a week a get an error 41 and BSOD. Funny it never happens under load, always just surfing on net or watching light movie files.

    I am quite sure event 41 is related to OC stability and 3B to dual video.

    Main monitor is my tv: a Sony BRAVIA XBR55HX929 55-Inch.
    Second is Asus PA246Q 24" LCD.

    Bravia is connected to mini HDMI, PA246 to DVI.

    Resolution is 1080p.

    BSOD with this error just happens when I have 2 videos connected. It never happens happens otherwise, but I get it nearly once at 2 days.

    minidump attached.

    Could you help me?

    Any thoughts?

    Sorry about that: PC&C Silencer 910, using it for 2 years . The same bsods happened with a previous PC&C Silnecer 750W.

    Despite the age, both PSUs absolutely rock solid , I'd say.

    You may have to adjust the bios setting for the PCIex16 timing when using dual monitors. I think the default setting is x1
