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

I swapped sata cables and it came back. Still BSODing, which was making getting ss of CPUZ a massive pain.

I'm currently installing windows on my other SSD to rule out that being the issue. Could be that the cable was causing a borked install as well?

Edit: Nope.. BSOD while installing.

Going back to try to get screens of cpu-z.

Yes, a bad cable will do that.

1 of 2. Will try to get the other in the next couple mins.

Edit: Did not BSOD this time so I felt like running memtest86+, but that still gave errors. After I seat my other pair, if not having BSODs, I'm going to reflash my BIOS to an earlier version to see if memtest86+ will still give me errors.

Those look fine. I would suggest you change the Command Rate (CR) from 1T to 2T. 2T is a little more stable, but other than that, they are spot on. There is nothing there that should cause errors in memtest, other than the ram having errors or a bad Dimm Slot on the Motherboard.

Well I tried all slots earlier and had BSODs. Could all slots fail at the same time? Otherwise that would mean both my RAM sticks failed at the same time and that these two new ones are both bad out of the box. (I did make sure to get a set that was in a sealed box.)

Do you know which is more likely? I'd hate to drive out again just to come back with more sticks that don't change anything.

Yes, it is possible that all slots are bad, but it is more likely that the ram sticks are bad. If you have access to another computer, run memtest86+ with your sticks in the other computer.

Unfortunately not.

I tried Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and it's showing 'Hardware problems were detected' immediately, whereas, like before with memtest86, it ran fine before flashing the BIOS. Maybe I ended up damaging something while troubleshooting?

Seems my only choice now is to waste more money on RAM or get a new CPU/Mobo set. There're no good 1155 boards at my store to replace what I'm using anyways.

You have Corsair ram and they have a lifetime warranty on their ram, I'm sure. Can you download and flash the bios back to the previous one? I'm not sure about Gigabyte boards, but Asus boards you can, so I would think Gigabyte's could do the same. When you go into bios, look and see if BIOS recognizes the ram. I assume you have already set the bios to optimized defaults?

Yea, that last post was when I flashed the BIOS to the earliest version I could download, and followed by running memtest86+ and windows mem diag.

What do you mean by recognize? I'm not sure if it shows a name of the modules, but it always displays voltage and frequency actively on the main tab.

Just BSOD during another Win install, just while waiting for activation key prompt.

OK, run the BSOD posting instructions and let me look. www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/96879-blue-screen-death-bsod-posting-instructions.html#option2

If you are doing a clean install, make sure you are configured for Small Memory Dumps.

By recognize, I just meant that it could 'see' all of your ram modules.
