Windows 7: BSOD - Random intervals with PFN_LIST_CORRUPT and MEMEORY_MANAGEMENT

This may be something not explained well in the BIOS but



But the "AI Overclock Tuner" lets me set Auto, Manual and XMP. That text on the right says "[X.M.P.] When XMP is enabled BCLK frequency, CPU ratio and memory parameters will be auto optimized."

This time when I set it to XMP it did not adjust my other settings, but I am 90% sure with the other RAM it did. But I re-loaded the BIOS config we set in this thread. So since the last BSOD the only difference is new RAM sticks are enabled. Using chrome, going to see if it will want to BSOD over the next week.

If the chips on the old RAM cause BSOD's, but the chips on the new RAM does not, what are the chances they'd take it under RMA? They have lifetime warranty, but I am not sure if its a valid reason for a return on warranty when the RAM may be fully functional, just not with my config.

The "AI Overclock Tuner" is different than the usual 'XMP' setting which is usually in the RAM settings section of BIOS, not sure about Your specific BIOS.

I never will recommend using any 'Auto' OC or Tuner utility, they are all guilty of bad settings, the CPU and RAM voltages are too high, which generates more heat.
Alway OC or adjust RAM settings manually.
Can you confirm what settings you changed?
Those settings were for a system that was giving errors and/or crashes. Which is usually due to some problem with RAM, sometimes other components, and can sometimes be corrected with voltage and timing setting changes, when stable it's up to you to keep the higher settings or RMA/buy new RAM.

With new RAM you should start with stock settings, the XPM settings listed in CPUZ/SPD tab.
Ram frequency to 1600 MHz, Change timings to Manual, first four settings to 9-9-9-25 and Command Rate to 2T, DRAM voltage to 1.500v and VCCIO Voltage to 'Auto'.
Check for stability, the system 'should' be stable with these settings.

They should take the old RAM in a RMA, just tell them what you have done, this is enough proof the old RAM has a fault.
If, the new RAM runs fine at default settings, as I listed above.

I didn't save any of the changed settings. I am using the same BIOS settings I was using back when I was getting the previous BSOD settings.

Ill go check that I am using manual settings on things now, set DRAM to 1.5 and VCCIO to auto.

EDIT: Yeah using manual settings with DRAM on 1.5 and VCCIO on auto.

That's good, I thought you meant the settings were at the elevated levels.

Let us know if you have more issues with stability.

System seems pretty stable, no BSOD's. Went on to reinstall Win8 which would BSOD on every boot, but its running fine now. I would say that the RAM was the issue. Still waiting for response from g.skill in Taiwan as to if they'll send me some new ones (sent from Australia, they should arrive there any day now).

Thanks heaps for the help! Just goes to show how troubleshooting RAM for as long as you want, it could still be faulty.

You're welcome.
Glad to hear it's stable.
Hope you hear from g.skill.
RAM definitely can still be faulty even if it passes all testing, it's difficult to get some to understand that.

You can mark this thread 'Solved'.
