Overclock causing game to crash?

1 Month ago I overclocked mt FX6300 to 4.1GHz, the stress test was fine, I ran it for 30 min and had no error.
Now my system shuts down when playing BF4 or BF1, altough LoL worked normally
I ran the BlueScreenView app to see what was going on and the results were these:
BugCheckCOde: 0x00000124
Paramanter 1: 00000000'0000000

The blue screen that shows when my PC crashes says: WHEA Uncoorrectable Error

Online I saw that those results meant that the CPU shut itself down

My temps are all fine when gaming and I set the CPU voltage 1.240


This error only started after I reseted the MBR of my windows 10 due to a boot error I was having, but I don't think that has any relation

Could this error be my overclock? I don't want to reset my bios because it wasn't me who did the OC and it really helped me out with the games, so I'll reset the bios only if there's no other solution or I'm sure that it's the OC that's causing the problem

  1. Did you type the CPU voltage correct?? 0.040 volts????

  2. Could be the memory control needs a touch more voltage so try a bit more cpu-nb voltage. Try a prime95 26.6 blend test for 10 minutes to see if stressing the memory control gets any errors.

    reseted BIOS to default, stress test on prime95 worked out fine for 20 minutes.
    I'm thinking in some kind of software issue, until now only BF games didn't worked.
    Since I installed W10 I'm havinh this issue with Srttrail, whice lead me to reseting the MBR, and only after that this problem came, so I'm reinstalling my W10. Thanks for the help anyway
