BSOD error since I changed CPU & Motherboard.

Hey Guys, I am in deep trouble or I should say my beautiful gaming machine is in deep trouble since I upgraded the CPU, that resulted into overall upgradation of these components :

OLD CMP------------------------------------------------------> NEW CMP
E7500 Core2Duo 2.93Ghz ---------------------> AMD FX6300 3.5Ghz
CPU Stock Fan------------------------------------> Coolermaster X212
Asus Mobo-----------------------------------------> Gigabyte Mobo that supports OC
Nvidia GTX 5601GB (still using the same)

When I first boot the sys post installing these new components, it gave me windows7 starup error, probably that bcoz of new mobo, hence driver conflicts. So, I reinstalled Windows7 but that too after doing Quick Format by right click on C: . So after insatllin new Windows7 and after playing few highend graphic games, my system started hitting blue screen errors and at times it also halts on boot screen and ask to review setting for Overclocking which I never changed intentionally, probably by mistake I did (not sure though). Also, see windows struggling to get launched and I have to reboot..safe boot then and then again in normal mode. So, this has been the trend for last 15-20 days.
I am not sure where the problem lies, I am running CPU a 3.5GHz now (for sure) but still windows struggle to launch ..all this said I never had any issues or shut downs while playing the games..like BF3, FIFA13 etc..

I am sorry for this long story..but please help me guys, I have also ran too for disk check and memory check all are fine. Now, should I reinstall windows7 ? was there an issue with the way I format the disk last time ?

Please suggest !

Thanks

    Two causes.

    1. Take a stick out of the memory. Check all values on the stick.

    Speed, voltage, and timing values. write them down.
    Enter the bios of the motherboard check it has auto setup all the values corect.
    If not set them manually to the correct values the memory module states.

    2. Check the temperature of the cpu in the bios if it is high say 60c your cooler is likely to be fitted wrong.
    If the cpu gets too hot it will throttle its clock speed lower. and may be the cause as to why windows is loading slow and crashes.

    First, thanks for sugesstion.
    For #2 : Since I installed CPU FAN, temp has never gone above 50-55 - this when playing game, at idle time it stays around 30-35.
    For #1 : Please clarify, you want me to check speed, voltage and timing values from RAM sticks ? where I can get those details from ? and how should I determine correct values ? should I also check GPU temp and speed ?

    Installed GPU temp gadget and it showing 45-58 degree celcius . Also noted that after every sudden shutdown of my system it saves a file in C drive which I tried to open in notepad and I see that something "Page dump" is mentioned everywhere.. Hard disk too looks fine. I may need to reformat my hard disk and reinstall the windows.
    Well while playing games..GPU temp goes above 80 celcius.
  4. On most ram sticks there will be a sticker.
    It will tell you the type of ram stick DD2 or DDR3.
    It will list the speed of the memory, and some timing values eg: 4-4-4-12.
    It will also tell you at what voltage it runs at.

    I would have a check to see if the bios has also overclocked the cpu.
    It says stock speed is 3.5Ghz and can be clocked up to 4Ghz.

    The only other thing to look at, is the gigabyte website with the model number of the motherboard..

    Check the cpu support list.
    Check the the current bios running with the board is compatible.
    And have a check in the bios update information if there is a known problem and a bios upgrade may have to be done to fix the issue.

    I suspect it is memory related, or maybe that the cpu is overclocked just a bit to high.
    The settings can always be changed in the bios if so.

    Thanks Shaun, I really appreciate that.
