Windows 7: Random, frequent BSOD. Mostly 0x124. Still happening after new install

Yes. The timing settings shown match what my sticks have on the stickers. The default setting has it running 1333, with an alternate profile of 1600. All my sticks are 1600 on the stickers. I tried with both settings just to make sure, but 86+ gave the same results.


I just read this thread, it's a bit old, but it sounds like he ran into something similar.
BSOD and locks up randomly. BCCode 124.

His solution was upping the voltage to 1.7. Is that safe?

OK. And the CPU? Not being overclocked?

Correct. CPU is default. No intel turboboost or whatever it's called either.

It's a 3770k running at 3.5ghz I believe.

No not necessarily - it depends on several factors.

I'll ask Steve (Essenbe) to look at this thread - he'll know more than I on the hardware side.

No worries. I've dropped Steve a message. He'll drop by when he logs on. Sit tight.

What are your stock voltages? I would suspect the Dram Voltage is 1.5V. If that is true, then 1.7V is way too much. You are usually safe raising them 10%, but no more. However, if the ram is rated to run a the timings and voltage on the ram sticks, it should not be necessary to increase the voltage.

If you are failing memtest86+ at the correct timings, Voltage and Frequency, I think that is your answer. If you don't already have it, please Download and install CPUz CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID And upload screenshots of the Memory tab and the SPD tab. You can select each SPD tab from a dropdown in the upper left. Just post screenshots of the Dimm Slots with ram in them.

My voltage is set to auto. I've seen it around 1.55-1.6 in the BIOS when I have both my 8GB sticks in there.

Will post some images shortly.

Edit: As of now, I can't get to the windows animation anymore. It just goes to a black screen. It can go as far as bringing me to 'select startup repair or start windows normally'.

Edit: Different sata cable fixed that.

Have you tried running startup repair or safe mode?

See if you can get into BIOS, and set optimized defaults. Make sure your sata controller is set to what it is right now, set your boot order, save and exit. I would look and see if my Ram, hard drive and Graphics cards are recognized by bios.
