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

After checking the manual, I managed to find the following:

I'm guessing this is the "C6" you're referring to:
1) RC6(Render Standby)
Allows you to determine whether to let the onboard graphics enter standby mode to decrease power
consumption. (Default: Enabled) - This will be disabled provided you were referring to this

2) CPU EIST Function
Enables or disables Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST). Depending on CPU loading, Intel EIST technology can dynamically and effectively lower the CPU voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and heat production. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting.
(Default: Auto) - This will be disabled

3) CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)
Enables or disables Intel CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) function, a CPU power-saving function in system halt state. When enabled, the CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced during system halt state to
decrease power consumption. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto) - What should this be set to?

4) C3/C6 State Support
Allows you to determine whether to let the CPU enter C3/C6 mode in system halt state. When enabled, the
CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced during system halt state to decrease power consumption.
The C3/C6 state is a more enhanced power-saving state than C1. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto) - Should I set this to C3 or Off?

No that is not the C6 state I am referring to.

Leave this option at its default setting.

No no leave this at default as well.
C3 = sleep, it won't do that while stress testing .


I haven't had the chance to fiddle about the new Z87 yet, but I'm pretty positive the UEFI layout
is similar (although varies between OEMs).
from I can recall you need to find the CPU Power Managment section, there you will have
and option called Intel C-STATES tell what it contains when you find it.

Looks like things have changed; I'm afraid I can't find any mention of "C-STATES" anywhere in the manual. The "Power Management" section of the manual contains nothing applicable; looks like "Advanced CPU Core Features" is the only section that contains settings of this nature. Here's a copy/paste from the manual:

1) Core Current Limit (Amps)
Allows you to set a current limit for CPU Turbo mode. When the CPU current exceeds the specified current limit, the CPU will automatically reduce the core frequency in order to reduce the current. Auto sets the power limit according to the CPU specifications. (Default: Auto)

2) CPU Core Enabled
Allows you to determine whether to enable all CPU cores. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto)

3) Hyper-Threading Technology
Allows you to determine whether to enable multi-threading technology when using an Intel
CPU that supports this function. This feature only works for operating systems that support multi-processor mode.
Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto)

4) CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)
Enables or disables Intel CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) function, a CPU power-saving function in system halt state. When enabled, the CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced during system halt state to decrease power consumption. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto)

5) C3/C6 State Support
Allows you to determine whether to let the CPU enter C3/C6 mode in system halt state. When enabled, the
CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced during system halt state to decrease power consumption.
The C3/C6 state is a more enhanced power-saving state than C1. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto)

6) CPU Thermal Monitor
Enables or disables Intel CPU Thermal Monitor function, a CPU overheating protection function. When
enabled, the CPU core frequency and voltage will be reduced when the CPU is overheated. Auto lets the
BIOS automatically configure this setting. (Default: Auto)

7) CPU EIST Function
Enables or disables Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST). Depending on CPU loading, Intel EIST technology can dynamically and effectively lower the CPU voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and heat production. Auto lets the BIOS automatically configure this setting.
(Default: Auto)

This is driving me bonkers, and should be incredibly simple. I'm considering opening up a support ticket with Gigabyte just so they can answer this basic question.

From what I know 0x124 & 1st Argument = 0, means the CPU has detected a hardware error but
just because the CPU detected it doesn't necessarily mean it is the one that had committed the fault.

0x124 are the most difficult to diagnose, unless you establish a reasoning
baseline as to what might be causing them such as overclocking.

I can link you to thess threads in hope you will be able to narrow it down after
completing the steps suggested there.

I'm hoping to have the chance to review the BIOS this evening to see if I can figure out how to disable what you've outlined and do the next stress test...will keep you posted =)

Thanks,

Haven't had a chance to do the additional testing yet, hoping to be able to try it before Friday!

As a side note, I'm considering purchasing this bad boy to nullify the PSU as being a potential problem (figured I'd share the deal as it expires on 8/31):

Seasonic 760w SS-760XP2 80+ Platinum Full Modular Power Supply $120.24 After Rebate + FS Newegg - Slickdeals.net

The Seasonic PSU's are very highly regarded and are a great choice.
It is important to keep in mind that may not be the cause but if you want to buy a new PSU
it is up to you eventually I'm here to suggest my side of the thinking process .

Original prime95 torture test HWiNFO log file (14 hours)

I finally got Microsoft Office reinstalled, and had the opportunity to review a log I captured using HWiNFO during the very first prime95 blen torture stress test where the computer ran for 14 hours and 15 minutes before it crashed with the original BSOD. I figured I'd attach the file to this post in the event it can maybe help shed some light on what went wrong. Please note I had to .rar the file in order for the Seven Forums upload system to accept it.

Thanks,
