Specs: Win 7 64, 2.4 GHz / 4095 MB
Hi.

I have finally put my new system together but have hit
a problem. When every the pc has been running for a
few hours it will go to blue screen. I am using base
setting ( no OC until I get this sorted) my temps are
not a problem ( watercooled) they don't get over 40c.
The only thing I can think of is I did not do a fresh
install of windows. My old board was a nvidia. I
installed the new drivers but could there still be
conflicts which cause this error?

Thanks

What is the Blue Screen error you get, and could you post the minidump file somewhere so we can analyse it?

ok wait i think i got it with the bluescreen viewer thing.

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exe

UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007f (0x0000000000000008, 0x0000000080050031, 0x00000000000006f8,
0xfffff80002e957a0)

*** ntoskrnl.exe - Address 0xfffff80002eccf00 base at 0xfffff80002e5b000 DateStamp
0x4a5bc600

Thanks again

Assuming that file is the problem referenced in all the bluescreen images, then it is probably a result of a change in your motherboard (such as going fro ma single to multi cpu, enabling ahci, using PAE, etc). Here is more info on the file, if you care here is more info on the file: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ntoskrnl

The best bet is to do a repair install.

If you look at the minidumps, and they reference different files each time, then it is probably bad memory.
