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

The real early versions of any chipset are usually much less stable. It takes them a while to work out all the kinks. The later versions are more stable and give you more options usually. I'm going through that now with the X99 Chipset. I had fits with the Z77 chipset, but it runs great now.

This is from my latest reinstall. I'm currently experiencing less overall BSODs, but I can provoke it by trying to install .net 4 (usually BSODs while extracting).

My board is Rev 1.1. There's a Rev 1.0 and 1.2 listed on Gigabyte's site. Not sure if it matters, but I always made sure to use the drivers under 1.1.


Also, I can't seem to get speedfan to run. It just hangs after 4 lines. But it's not surprising since a couple things have crashed randomly. I might try to reseat everything tonight.

Make sure to run all of the Important and recommended Windows updates. You should get .NET 4 as a Windows update. It may be crashing because other things need to be installed first.

As with my last install, the updates were hard to get or broken due to BSODs in the middle. Downloaded about 8 updates and as soon as it reaches the install point, it BSODs. I only tried .Net4 first this time as it was part of my mobo drivers disc.

KenjiJU, I don't understand. You have had Memtest86, memtest86+ and Windows Memory Diagnostic all say your ram is throwing faults and errors, yet you still don't seem to believe them. You are having BSODs during an installation where there are no drivers to blame. You have a lifetime warranty on the ram, so it isn't a matter of money. The number of errors is irrelevant. 1 Error is a fail. You are still having BSODs right now. All the evidence is right there, I'm having trouble understanding your reluctance. It is either your ram or your board, as I see it.

I'm in agreement with Steve, all evidence points to RAM or motherboard failures. You need to act on the evidence.

Well, what's hard to accept is that my first two sticks ran in two of those test programs with no immediate issue vs a bucketload of mass failure immediately upfront, same happening to two new modules. Any configuration of these give the same BSOD frequency as back when I thought the issue was a software/driver issue, so memtest reads have changed, but the BSODs that have been happening haven't.

Thanks for your time, guys.

I'll come back to report any solution.

Failures with memory often manifest themselves in bizarre ways. However, if MemTest86+ reports errors, it is very rarely incorrect.
