Well, looks like it ended up being a bad stick of RAM. I was able to run all of the Prime95 tests for an hour each with no issues on the second stick by itself. It's really confusing, because Memtest86+ gave no errors on the bad stick, and I swear it was crashing on Prime95 last week as well. I must have done something wrong at some point.

Anyway, I've been running the one good stick for a few days now with no crashes. Thanks a lot for your help writhziden, I greatly appreciate it.

No problem. I'll remain subscribed to this thread for a while longer just in case, but things look good, and I am glad you are happy with the system now.

Well, looks like the problem wasn't solved

Got a new BSOD while just importing photos into Lightroom, then I decided to try playing some Battlefield 3 to test it and got crashes again. So, it no longer looks like the RAM, unless both sticks somehow went bad. It's got to be the motherboard, PSU, or possibly something with my SSD? This is so wierd.

Did not realize you had an SSD.
  • Is the SSD firmware up to date?
  • Is your BIOS version up to date?
  • Are your chipset drivers up to date?
  • Are your hard disk controller drivers up to date?
I note that you have Marvell Controller drivers installed. Older versions of these drivers have caused conflicts with SSDs. The newer versions were supposed to fix the problem, so you may want to get the drivers from the Marvell site itself: Marvell - Support. If that does not resolve it, try running without the Marvell drivers installed. I have seen the newer drivers still cause problems with some SSDs.

SSD firmare, bios, chipset drivers are all up to date. I went ahead and uninstalled the Marvell Controller drivers (I'm still not even 100% sure what those are for). I finally just bit the bullet and went out and bought two brand new sticks of RAM and threw them in. System has been perfectly stable in both Prime95 tests and in actual gaming. I'll consider this solved...again....for now.

The Marvell drivers are for AHCI and/or RAID controllers. Windows will often find a generic set of drivers or install the Intel versions if they are compatible. As long as the system is working, I'm glad to see it. Best of luck!
