    Hello there,

    CPU - Intel 2500K OC'd to 4GHz.
    GPU - Nvidia 560Ti OC'd. Memory Clock - 2020 Mhz. Shader Clock - 1900 Mhz.

    My PC build is only 1 years old and I have had my share of BSODs. They normally occur after exiting a game I have played. Last week I had just finished playing L4D with some mates. I quit the game and my computer was really slow to respond to anything and then I got a BSOD.

    Can anyone help me. I hope it isn't a hardware issue.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    Maybe the gaming is causing some conflicts with other software like the overclocking.
    I wouldn't be too sure on how to solve it though.

    Well, the first thing to do would be to knock off the non-factory overclocks and see if you still experience them....

    Do this and also update your video card drivers to the latest version.

    Use bluescreenview to find out what is causing the BSOD.

    As others have said, remove any OCs and update all drivers and BIOS. If you have BSODs still, use BlueScreenViewer to find what it says and report back
