Unfortunely as many others here I am experiencing some issues with my new system. The first blue screens occured while i was overclocking due to having wrong settings the system is stable now running at 4.4Ghz (System specs are in my profile) although voltage might still be a tad high, I got the following results while stressing in prime95: 1.296-1.312v. However since then i've experienced multiple BSOD's in several applications. I think the problem is the ntoskrnl.exe file since that one seems to be involved in pretty much every BSOD. I'l copy paste a bluescreenvieuw report and whocrashed. I hope someone here can help me out.

Thanks in advance,

ntoskrnl.exe That's an important kernel file. Some other file is causing it grief (probably a buggy driver).

Reset everything back to default and see if the issue resolves itself.

Just from your original post you admit the voltages may still be a little high. Try setting them a step lower and see if it will run stable then.

The question is are those other people running the exact same hardware setups as you?
Same motherboard, CPU, PSU, Video and exactly the same memory?
