Right, didnt take long to get another bsod. Also installed my Corsair Dominator 6Gb RAM kit back. Going to see for atleast 1 week if it gives any BSOD's this time.


Heres the new BSOD report files

ps. This calls for a beer . Starting to be soon in state of buying new motherboard and/or CPU and make some kind of kinky jewerly of this old CPU.

Device Concerns:
It appears the SBRE issue has been taken care of. Nice work!

Software Concerns:
MSI Afterburner/RivaTuner is known to cause instability with systems. Please remove the software. Software overclocking does not provide reliable overclocking. Overclocking should be accomplished through the BIOS or through the graphics card manufacturer's software.

Analysis:
Crashes are primarily indicating a RAM issue. It was a good step to swap out your 12 GB kit for the 6 GB kit (I assume you swapped them and did not just add the 6 GB to the 12 GB?). Let us know if you have any problems with just the 6 GB kit installed.

The MSI Afterburner has been running with the comp for years now. Ofc i have installed the newest version always (except now, i installed the last working one that ive had.) Its not in my system for overclocking purposes, the HD6990 aircooled version just aint for overclocking tasks. Runs fairly hot without overclocking and with the originial fancontrol (90celsius during heavy gameplay) and with the custom fancontrol that i made with MSI afterburner it runs 70-80celsius during heavy gameplay.

I tested the SpeedFan but didnt like its way of control.

Yeh i removed the 12Gb kit and installed the 6Gb kit back in. Cant use the second 3 slots from the motherboard as my cpu cooler is blocking the first one. So i can only use 1 triple kit at time.

Computer has been stable since i swapped the RAM kit, but like last time it took first 1-2 days to get first BSOD and then again almost 2 days to get second one. Then after that it started to happen in 1-3hours between each other.

The computer is on most of the time during the daytime. Nights its closed.

i think its already safe to say that the problem is solved. The 12Gb RAM kit is broken or for some reason causing bsod's.

Would the RAM act like that if the motherboard wont support 3x4gb on each slot? tho the board shud support up to 24gb of ram.

Just wonder why it passes memtest tho

Test each of the 4 GB modules you have individually. See if they each work by themselves and Windows is stable.

Test the memory slots and modules as follows.
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power sources to the system: unplug the power from the outlet/surge protector or PSU (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds (for your safety and the safety of the components) to close the circuit and drain all power from components.
  4. Remove the casing (or remove the RAM panel if it is a laptop).
  5. Remove all but one memory module making sure you are grounded while doing so.
  6. Replace the casing (or replace the RAM panel if it is a laptop) and put the remaining memory module(s) in a safe, static free environment.
  7. If the problem persists, repeat steps 1-4 and move the memory module to another slot (while staying grounded, of course).




Do this until all slots have been tested. If all slots fail, the memory module may be bad. Test with one of the remaining modules. Continue one module at a time in one slot at a time until you find a good module and good slot. Test remaining modules in the good slot, test good modules in other slots to find bad slots, etc.






Test by doing your normal routine in Windows for twice as long as it takes to get a crash or until you get a crash, whichever comes first. You can also test by doing the tasks that generally cause crashes.





That will determine whether you have a bad module. If all modules check out, we can help you with steps to get the 12 GB to work together.

I will leave the module testing for the shop where i bought them. The old 3x2gb kit works without problems.

That's fine. Do you consider the problem solved?

Once you are confident the problem is solved, please let us know and you may also mark the thread solved at that time.

Well its sorted, something ram related. Can take it on from here myself.

Fixlist:

Thanks for the help, marking the topic as solved.
