Windows 7: Intel burn test is the only thing crashing my PC

Intel burn test is the only thing crashing my PC

I've recently upgraded from the H60 to the H80i, lapped my 2500k to a mirror finish and decided to use the extra 20c (that's right 20c difference in full load temps) to boost my overclock from 3.8 to 4.3ghz. I ran prime95 for 8 hours and received no errors, with a max temp of 68c. Today, I decided to try Intel burn test. I let it run while getting ready for work, and after about 15 minutes I noticed that MSI afterburner crashed. I rebooted @ stock 3.3ghz and ran the tool and noticed afterburner crashed again, so I assumed at this point it was Afterburner. I rebooted at 4.3ghz and went to work with it running, came back to my PC, it was still on, unresponsive, with a black screen, just wondering if you guys can pinpoint if it's the Nvidia driver that's crashing or what? I feel like this would happen on stock clock settings, but I'm unsure.

I've attached my dm log collector results. Thanks in advance!

Basically, what you are telling me is you do not have a BSOD problem, you have an unstable overclock problem. Set everything back to default levels.

Applied all stock settings and ran Intel Burn when I left for work today, came home to the same black screen.

Open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

What is Driver Verifier:
It puts stress on the drivers, and tries to make the faulty driver crash the computer. It is designed this way, to attempt to trap the offending driver.


What you will notice:
It will tend to make the computer rather slow and sluggish because the drivers are being stressed.

Before enabling DV, make sure you have created a system restore point before enabling Driver Verifier. make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Thank you for the awesome reply. I tried everything and found no errors at all with the command prompt after three searches. Driver verifier did not crash my system, but I did manage to crash it by running 7 instances of memtest. I checked CPU-Z and my RAM is the same, but I recently RMA'd 2 of the 4 sticks and noticed that the new ones have a different tRC at 1600mhz (which is what the RAM is rated for and what I am running them at) and the old ones have XMP 1.1 while the new ones have 1.3. Is there any way the difference in RAM timings could be my source as the crashed occur on stock CPU clock settings?

Any time you mix ram modules, you are not going to get the best performance and are risking instability.

Would you please tell me how you ran 7 instances of memtest+? If you ran it the way The instructions are, I don't see how that is possible. The instructions for Memtest86+
Please Run Memtest86+



information   Information
Please download from this site only http://www.memtest.org/ in the middle of the page are the Download links, you can download the ISO.zip or the Auto USB Flash Drive installer.zip


Extract the Zip file. If you chose the ISO image, burn it to a CD using Windows Disk Image Burner or any Image burner you may have. If you downloaded the Auto USB installer, extract it, insert your USB 2.0 Flash Drive and take note of the drive letter. Run the installer, select the Flash Drive Letter, check the format box and press next. It will install memtest86+ to a flash drive. You can use either V4.20 or V5.01. Boot from your selected media. If you use V5.01 it will tell you to press certain buttons at the start, please press no buttons. The test will begin on it's own and continue to run until you stop it. It needs to run for 8 complete passes or until you receive an error. If you receive an error, stop the test. Even 1 error is a fail. Each pass tests a different part of the ram and each of the 10 tests in each pass tests something different. It takes a minimum of 8 passes to completely test the ram, more passes are better. It is quite a long test and will take several hours depending on how much ram you have. Due to the time length it is best to run overnight. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask

Running the iso now and going to bed. Thanks a lot essenbe, you're the best! I downloaded a Windows exe memtest... MemTest: RAM reliability tester for Windows which says to run multiple instances to use all ram. Clearly, I am a noob. I appreciate all of your help so far, hopefully we can pinpoint the issue. If it's a RAM issue, I'm sure I can RMA the original pair for a new, updated set. Team has excellent customer service.

If you want to test your ram, do it the right way. The test will take about 9-10 hours and you have to run a minimum of 8 passes all at the same time. You can't run 5 passes and come back later and run 3 more. They have to be run all at the same time. Please follow the instructions exactly.

Please Run Memtest86+

Ok, so I ran memtest for about 31 hours for a total of 15 passes, 0 errors. I noticed that while running, my first core was extremely slow every time it was in use. I exited and rebooted and noticed it took windows about 40 seconds to load (It usually takes ~15 seconds). I uninstalled Acronis, I only had it installed to recover some game save files from my old C:. I ran linpack through OCCT before work and my PC crashed with a proper blue screen. This is a fresh Windows installation less than a week old.

What is your Vcore set to? In bios what is the value of your +12V, +5V and +3.3V? Make sure your SSD Firmware is up to date. Look at your ram settings in bios, look at the sata controller and see what it is set to. Make sure your SSD is connected to port 0 or 1. Set you bios to optimized defaults, set your sata controller to what it is right now, set the frequency, timings and Dram Voltage to manufacturer's specs. Save and exit. Please let me know the values of the voltages.
