    Is this system overclocked?

    This is a WHEA fault - basically, something went really screwy in hardware.

    Yes, it is the rig in my sig.
    Why stop rather than lower my overclock?

    Can you please expand? What does it say really? And how bad is it?

    And If I'm IBT and prime95 stable with this overclock, how could this happen, and what does it really mean?


    Thanks.

    You should read this to see what is possible from OC: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2005/04/12/407562.aspx

    I didn't bother checking which instruction you faulted on, the important thing is that this is windows detecting a hardware error.
