Windows 7: Random BSOD when browsing with chrome

You definitely were not joking about the 40 hr thing for 32 GBs of RAM with 8 passes.

I got though 8 passes in about 42 hours and there were no errors. However, I think I might have found the problem. I loaded up Win 7 on my other HDD I have in the PC and began using it as normal. After installing all my drivers I started playing Far Cry 3. About 15 mins in the PC froze and rebooted. I wasn't sure if it was a BSOD because the I have 3 monitors and the monitor that displays the BSOD messages was turned off (I turn off all my monitors except the monitor I'm playing the game on).

After checking, there was a dump file created, but I noticed that things seemed to be running fairly hot. Not my CPU or GPUs, those were running normal, but my HDDs were running at about 50 degrees C! I thought this was odd and I inspected the case further to find out that two 120mm fans had stopped working, one bottom intake fan and one HDD fan. So I opened the case and put a desk fan pointed directly at the open PC. This brought my HDD temps down to 31 degrees C and everything is running great (over 48 hrs and no problems.. I do have new 120mm fans on the way and they should get here today, the desk fan is just a temp solution.

My next step is to re-install win 7 back on the SSD and see if things run smooth, but at this point it seems like I might of had some components over heating which was giving the 124 BSODs.

Well, that is good news and bad news. I am happy you have figured out the problem, but am not happy that I had to waste 42 hours. I feel bad about putting you through that, but I saw no indication in the dump files that suggested a hard drive problem. So, I apologize but I am happy you have it running again. I hope all of your problems are solved. Check back in after you get your fans installed and let us know how it is going. Also, whenever you believe your issues have been resolved, please mark this thread as solved. I appreciate you letting me know the results. Wyoming is beautiful country. I wen there on vacation quite a few years ago and considered moving there. I loved it, even the snow, which I get little of here in Florida.

No worries, it's all part of the troubleshooting process for sure. I was totally sure it was the RAM, especially since I just stuck in a new 16 GBs of RAM and the problems started shortly after that.

And it was kind of nice to be forced to take a break from the PC for the entire weekend. I spent some good time with the family that I'm sure I would have spent at my PC if it would have been operational

And I feel kind of stupid for not checking the ventilation, seems like the obvious thing to do, but easy to skip. Also, even though the HDDs were in the 50 C range, that might not have been the problem, the bottom intake fan pulled in cool air directly over the MB, so it could have been the MB that was overheating too. I didn't think to look at the MB temps before I put the desk fan on the PC. But the MB temps are nice and cool at the moment.

I also spent some time in Florida back around 2000 after I graduated HS. It was a good time and I learned lots, only been back once but I do get to go to a work function this year which will be in Orlando, so I'm looking forward to that. Hehe, you're right though, we get a bit more snow here than you guys do down in Florida.

I'll boot up and run my PC on the SSD over the weekend to rule out the SSD and report back with my findings.

Great, I look forward to hearing from you. A lot of times it is the simple things that get you. Don't feel bad, I have done worse.
