Windows 7: BSOD running prime95 "Blend" torture test, error 0x00000124 (Win7 x64)

Hmmm, so it sounds like you're saying I should probably go ahead and complete my build with the Antec Neo HE650 PSU from my primary machine and run AIDA64 for 12 or so hours and see how things look? :-P I'm sad to see that my PSU isn't listed as fully compatible =/. I just emailed Antec's Tech Support asking about the compatibility of this PSU with my Haswell chip. What values should I hope to see once I've swapped PSUs? And, do you have an opinion on whether the CPU has sustained any damage as a result of this entire process?

Thanks,

I'm saying that a single BSOD is not enough to establish a pattern or a possible suspect.
It is up to you to decide what to do with your PC pats, but it's worth a go in my opinion.
I doubt it did, if it had you would have encountered it by now.

Thank you for your time and patience YoYo! My primary concern during the entire build was the thermal paste application, it's something I absolutely hate and don't consider myself that great at doing. I'll go ahead and swap PSUs (depending on Antec's answer), and pray for the best. I'm hoping to have a better idea once I get Steam installed and start beating the system up with some modern games =P. What Voltage/PSU values and Boost Clock values should I hope to see within the Statistics area of AIDA64 once I swap PSUs? It sounds like "CPU Clock" should read 3900 rather than 3891?

With a very good PSU you should expect very close if not the exact voltage values that the 3.3v, 5v & 12v rails deliver.
The CPU clock fluctuates according to load and BIOS optimizations, 3891 and 3900 is not too much to concern
yourself about its probably due to a setting in the BIOS not delivering enough juice to the CPU.

Once you get into overclocking the ballpark changes completely, that's why I suggested the OC section before .

I built this machine with the intent of *MAYBE* OCing in the future, but it's not a primary goal right now. I also built my current Q6600 rig 5 years ago with the intent of OCing, but never bothered lol. I guess I'll swap PSUs and do a *PROPER* 12+ hour stress test with AIDA64 this time around. Any additional input before I start relieving stress by killing stuff in Borderlands 2? :P

Bummer, I swapped out the cheap Rosewill PSU with my Antec Neo HE650 and the computer crashed after approx. 2 hours of AIDA64 stress testing (same BSOD code of 0x00000124). I've taken the liberty of attaching another crash dump to this reply. Also, here is Antec's official response on my PSU compatibility question:

Thank you for contacting Antec Inc. In regards to your inquiry, the NeoPower 650HED is not compatible with the new Haswell chipset. Please refer on this link for PSU's that are compatible with the Haswell chipset. ANTEC - PSU Review Database

I'm pretty damn pissed I have to upgrade my adequately watted PSU that I spent a good amount of $$$ on in the not too distant past =/. Any additional advice is greatly appreciated!

The latest dump is the same as before so what was mentioned before is still relevant.

I suggest you try to crash it again, but this time go into the BIOS and disable the new C-STATES,
C6 and C7.

Disable EIST (Enhanced Intel Speed-Step Technology), so how it goes.

Keep in mind there is a chance the problem is with the motherboard or the CPU, although CPU
defects are very very rare but they do happen.

Morning YoYo,

Do you suggest I still purchase a "certified" compatible PSU for the Haswell chipset? What effect will disabling those features have on my current problem? If modifying those settings does somehow make the system stable, what does that mean?

Thanks,
