No, it shouldn't, but it can't hurt to try..

As for vcore, it's on the default 1.65v, and even if it was at 1.6v for example it'd still take a few mins to fail with a rounding error rather than sub 1min.
Unless the board undervolts a bit, you're right, that should be enough vcore. Hell, most cpus will run stock speed with less than stock vcore.. Hmmmm..

So... hmm, clearing CMOS and starting over is an option I guess but from what I see everything is set appropriately unless I'm overlooking something well obvious.
Did he say it wasn't stable in Windows? (I can't remember)

Not stable in windows either, iirc.
Resetting the cmos is the easiest way to see whether it's a setup issue, or a hardware failure though. That's why I'd recommend it first.. Never can be sure what was adjusted in there ya know..

Dad's checking the CMOS later...thanks. I'm getting new error messages now though, guess my computer wasn't happy with the old ones lol.

Well, for "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" this usually occurs after installation of a faulty device driver, system service or BIOS.
When do you get the message? At startup or simply when using Windows?
Also do you have a USB modem or such? You may wanna check you have the latest drivers for that, or unplug/uninstall and see if the problem persists.

However, normally you get BSOD's related to RAM problems. So for this you can run memtest86+. This is an app that you run from a floppy or bootable ISO (CD) at startup, without even being in Windows, and it will test your RAM. Basically if you get any errors, you've got a problem. You will need to set your BIOS boot up order so that the CD or FDD (whichever method you choose for memtest) is #1 so it boots from the device before the HDD and can then run memtest.
Are you running 1x512MB stick or 2x256? If 2x256 you might try one and then the other individually, to see if one is a bad stick. If it's 1x512 you should swap in some other RAM from elsewhere if possible.

Hey I got a question...
I can run ANY game with the current OC with NO problems at all but CANNOT run PRIME for more than 10 minutes without freezing... Weird. And I never have any heat problems or anything. So why is that?

Well, IMO, if it doesn't fail in the first couple of mins there is a very mediocre level of stability there, so it may well be fine for some things.
But most people prefer to run for longer so they do not have to worry about potential problems in any way during the use of their computer.
