Default Re: Problem!

Just another quick question...

Could a bad motherboard be the cause of the blue screen?

And...i currently have the stock heatsink that came with the CPU...but i'm gonna get a new one. What kinda RPMS should i get?

dont worry about the rpms, go with the zalman 120mm, the fan run at a very slow rpm but since its bigger it still gets really good airflow and its very quiet, as for your BSOD problem the only thing i can think is that its getting to hot and becomes unstable somehow, but the zalman will fix that np, you should expect at least a 15C drop in temperature with that heatsink
