I just got home from work and school. I will make the changes you two have suggested and will let you know how the next boot goes.

I switched the timings to 9-9-9-25 and the command rate to 2t(2N).
I then bumped the VTT to 1.15v, and manually set the DRAM voltage to 1.55v.

I only have one stick of Memory in the system right now (running memtest per stick yesterday) and I have had four successful cold boots today without bsod. I am going to insert my second stick and see if I yield the same results in the morning. I will update this thread tomorrow.

Thanks for the details.

Hope it continues to be stable.
If you get no cold boot errors with the other RAM stick, then put both in and test.
If still no issues then you should be good. If there are more cold boot issues then you may need to tweak the settings a bit more.

Let us know the results.

I placed the second stick in last night. The moment I turned the PC back on I received a blue screen, the system wanted to attempt and repair itself I allowed the program to attempt it. The system could not fix the error and prompted an auto restart. The system crashed again and immediately shut down then automatically powered back on. I then powered down, turned off my psu, removed the second stick then powered the PC back on and everything loaded fine.
The system started up perfect this morning with only the one stick in. I didn't have time to set up memtest before I left for school this morning on the second stick that caused the blue screen last night. Could this possibly be the culprit?

Did you have one or two RAM cards installed when you had the last crash?
If two RAM cards then remove the one that ran stable with no cold boot problems, test the other RAM card as you did the first one.

If both RAM cards run stable when installed one at a time, and crash when both are installed, then you will need the settings adjusted.

If you tested one RAM card at a time, did you test the RAM cards in different RAM slots or the same one?

You need to determine if it is the RAM card or the RAM slot.
If you ran each RAM card in different RAM slots, then put the known good RAM card in the RAM slot that failed last time and test it for stability.
This should tell you what the cause is.
If you want or need to you can put the RAM card that failed into the known good RAM slot and test for stability.

For reference: RAM - Test with Memtest86+


Let us know the results.

Thanks for the suggestions Dave. I have been able to cold boot with one stick having no issues no matter which slot the stick was in. I then attempted to do the same with the second stick and it would blue screen in all four slots.

I ran memtest86+ with the stick giving me issues and errors began as soon as the test ran. After one pass there were over 18000 errors. I will be returning the memory and will update this post once I install the new RAM.

Good work finding the bad RAM.

You will usually need to run any RAM test several times in order to catch some RAM errors.

Let us know how the new RAM is running.

After receiving the new memory and three days of no BSOD I believe the issue has been resolved. Thank you for the help with solving my issue.
