When I go to bed, I simply just turn my monitors off and walk away, then when I awake in the morning, just turn my monitors back on and resume my tasks.

And I have not overclocked. Everything is factory defaults as this is a brand new motherboard that I received from RMA, so I did not want to overclock until I ensured that everything worked as intended (clearly it does not).

Anyways... I have installed Memtest86+'s USB key onto my USB drive. I will run memtest on each stick, and then individually just to get it over with and make sure my RAM is okay. I will report back with the results as soon as I can!
Given there was only one DMP file provided we cant spot any trends. If you get more crashes upload the DMP files.

Re: rebooting. If you have the slightest memory leaks (and most computer apps do) they will magnify over time. If this is a one off I wouldnt worry but I would reboot more often if for no other reason the to keep from fragmenting memory/PF.

I have a backup computer, so I can still respond to you guys as memtest goes. Thank you for that reboot tip, I learn something new everyday here with the knowledge you're giving me, and I thank you for that.

For the sake of being lazy, if both sticks pass 6 passes of Memtest, would you say running the sticks individually is necessary? Memtest takes a lot longer than I thought. If it's absolutely best to run the sticks individually as well, I of course will.

**Also, I included a DMP in my OP, but it was not in the correct format, so I have edited this post and attached a TDR BSOD I got 5 days ago that you can debug if you wish.

And one final thing, gentlemen. I have been reading about my issues, and it seems they can be related to the "ATK0110 driver", and it just so happens I have an Asus P8P67 board. If it's of any consolation, every time I reformat, I install the drivers and chipset right off of the disc that comes with the board, rather than getting the latest version off of Asus' website. Could this my issue?

The driver off the disk probably isnt the latest and their earlier drivers were problematic. IF the date on the disk driver is before 2009 dont use it.

Would you be able to check that dump file and tell me if that driver is even listed? I'm fairly sure P67 boards weren't manufactured back in 2009 :P

By "that driver" do you mean the ATK?

If so it isnt

Thanks, was wondering.. so that's not my issue I guess. Also, question about Memtest. I have been reading, and it says if all sticks pass 2-3 passes, then there's virtually no need to individually test the sticks, as if a stick was bad, even with both inserted, it would show errors. Would you agree?

Ran memtest for about two hours and ten minutes, so two passes. Showed no errors, no hiccups, I am convinced it is not my RAM, as memtest usually reports issues with RAM very quickly.

I may have found my issue. I thought about it and said "So far I have only blue screened in games, intensive games none the less". So, I ran Furmark correctly this time, last time I did not run it in full screen so my crossfire wasn't being utilized. Within twenty minutes of running Furmark, my 2nd GPU had hit 90c, and the 1st GPU sat at around 85c. Fan speeds were exceeding 70%, so setting fan profiles wouldn't save me in that situation.

Could this be my issue after all, heat just building up over and over again, eventually just overheating? I mean, you also have to think about it... two GPUs running at close to 90c, that adds up, and then you have other components too..

I am 100% not okay with my GPUs running that hot in the winter, because I live in an attic, and in the summer, it's almost the equivalent of sitting outside, even with my air conditioner. So pretty much if this is the winter temps for my GPUs, it won't even survive summer.

Unsure of what to do at this point.....

This is very true. Would you say this is a possible cause? If it is, I will do my best to purchase a full tower capable of good cable management and multiple fan configurations.

Even if this isn't a direct cause, I am still not personally okay with my GPUs running that hot, you wouldn't be either I presume. I'm just a little confused as I thought Furmark was not an accurate representation as to what your temps will be whilst gaming.

I don't mean to bump an old thread, my apologies, just wanted to keep you guys updated. Previously I had been on the same AMD drivers for quite a few re-installs (specifically speaking 11.12). I got a BSOD about a week ago that showed an ATI related sys driver, so I decided to try 12.1, and ever since then I have not *knocks on wood* have had BSODs.

Hopefully that was the cause after all, if not, I'll take it upon myself to further diagnose my issue, as it will be hardware related at this point... and that will be up to RMAs and such.

Anyways, thanks again for your help, I shall mark this as solved, which I hope it also is!
