    BSOD while using Sonar Artist. Event Viewer 1001 and 18

    I posted this on Sevenforums because i totally forgot I was using 10 but here's kind of a repost haha.

    I was in the middle of using Cakewalk Sonar Artist and the computer randomly BSOD. It a pretty memory and CPU heavy program but I'm curious what happened.

    I've had a few crashes as of lately. One I believe to be a bad GPU but now I saw ID: 18 which says something about my CPU.

    Any help would be great.

    Edit: It's been crashing a lot lately with different kinds of freezing, lock ups, and BSOD. Everytime it was when I used Sonar Artist. I can play new games without issues but once I start using that application it crashes after about 15-20 minutes.

    The uploaded attachment is current to today.

    I only tested the CPU so far but in 15 minutes I got 1 error and just 7 minutes later I got another. CPU is only running at 64 Celsius so It's not over heating and I just got another PSU so I don't think its my powersupply. I'm going to give memtest a run in a little bit for the heck of it. Looks like I might need a new CPU.

    My suggestion is to replace (RMA if you have warranty) the CPU before you run the other tests.
    The CPU might cause some tests to either crash or give unexpected results.
