Hi again,

I am very sorry for overlooking your request to resize my screenshot. You will find the resized screenshot at the end of this reply and in future i will properly size them.

I am going to install a third fan on the side of my case pointing directly at the NB inorder to reduce temperature.

At this point do you think it's still a hardware problem ? I know the stresstesting isn't a 100% guarantee that the hardware is working correctly but I am considering the option that the 0x124 BOSD might be a flase positive.

I haven't been overclocking any of my components at all, everything is still on the default settings. I thought this information might help you.

I will be running all the software tests tomorrow since its 2am in germany right now.

As promised the resized screenshot if you still need them.

I don't think its a false positive, but we have taken measures that it hasn't shown up again.

They discuss how the heatsink is not properly seated to the NB in this thread: Crosshair IV Formula NB & SB temperatures
If there hasn't been too much time that has past, you may want to consider RMA'ing the MB or you can try making the modifications yourself.

That's strange, your profile says your in the Central U.S. You might want to go over your profile, and about that resizing.
It seems there is still a link to where you have it stored on imgur.com could you either remove the link from here or remove the photo on imgur?

Hello Anak,

I finished running all the tests you recommended, here are the results.

SFC verfiy only : no errors everything is intact.

CHKDSK /R : no bad sectors found.

I ran Driver Sweeper and reinstalled the graphic card drivers.

I also defragmented my System.

I checked the temperatures of my System using Speedfan while playing BF3 for 2 hours. There were no crashes or BOSDs, but the Temperatures were similar to the PRime95 test.

I can't RMA the MB anymore, warranty expired 5 days ago
But I will try to make the modifications myself if you think thats the problem causing the BOSDs.

I didin't have any BOSDs since I started following your advice. But I am getting more and more confused about what the real problem is that caused all my past BOSDs, especially when most tests are showing good results.

Thanks for your help

Just for the record I once had a motherboard who's northbridge temp was always showing incredibly high.
It turned out to be the sensor.
Using a direct temp gauge showed it to be in normal range.

According to what I saw, the problem was sourced in the graphics driver install.
This is very often the case when some games are affected and others not.

Maguscreed is correct in saying the NB's usually run hot, seems to be the nature of the beast, and the graphics drivers can cause problems.

You could look the NB heatsink over to see if you can see anything out of the ordinary. Follow these instructions: Crosshair IV Formula NB & SB temperatures

Do you still have the jcgriff utility, would you rerun it so I can compare?

Thank you Vazzle,

I wanted to go over them to see what changes, if any, occurred.

Since your cleanup, and removal of certain programs most if not all changes would be to your startups, which in turn would affect your services, and processes.

Since your machine seems fairly stable, something you could do would be to add one of the games you removed, play it for awhile, and see how it affects your system.
If it BSOD's run another jcgriff, and post it.

I have to go and run some errands, and do some chores. I hope to be able to post back no later than 9pm your time 3pm mine.



EDIT:
Just took A quick look at your .dmp files, are you running okay? because I'm seeing all the same problems as before.

I'll still be around for about a half hour, so I'll check back.

Okay, I see what's going on, the modified date on the rerun of the griff has todays date, but the debug session time is from earlier last week.
I'm going to find out the best way to clear the old files.

You could still try adding those games one at a time:
