I recently got a new processor, an fx 8350 black edition, replacing a sempron x4, but when i try to run a cpu-intensive game (rome 2) or run stress testing such as prime95, it crashes out to blue screen.
There are a few different bsod memory dump messages that i haven't been able to make sense of, but they all point to ntoskrnl.exe issues.
It's not a heating issue, i ruled that out with a new cpu fan and i was watching temperatures on safefan anyway to see that it never really went above 50 degrees C. It also does not appear to be any of the other hardware, as i can put the sempron back in and this issue stops happening.
also while trying to resolve this i've reinstalled windows and downloaded everything fresh.
This link is to cpuZ's validation of my specs, and i noticed the cpu frequency was in red, could this be the problem? I'm not too experienced with changing those sorts of settings.
Does anyone have any ideas of what i can do to resolve this?
All drivers are recent and updated, here are some of the error codes:
0x00000101 - (no listed error)
0x1000007e - system_thread_exception_not_handled
0x0000000a - IRQL_not_less_or_equal
0x00000024 - ntfs_file_system
