Windows 7: BSoD on startup

What are the XMP options? You need to revert back the overclocking.

In the BIOS you can see that XMP button at the top left.

All that has to be done is to select that and the XMP profile is enabled.

I don't know of any other options.

I did try a few weeks ago disabling XMP to eliminate that as being the cause of the BSoD. I still got crashes on default frequency and timings.

I will put them back to default before running memtest and leave it that way until cleared .

TBH I didn't think it was an OC. I thought only going beyond the XMP settings was an OC. I learned something again.

Going beyond the XMP is going to the unstable route (if that is possible?), XMP is OC because the RAM goes beyond its designed capabilities but within the range of the tested capabilities.

No worries. I had thought that when purchasing RAM at a rated frequency, (1866 in my case), that once installed at default bios settings, the RAM actually got underclocked. In my case down to 1333 and you had to either manually adjust to the 1866, or use XMP profile.

Thanks again axe0. You can teach an old dog new tricks

Hi axe0
Memtest ran for almost 8 hours overnight and only 4 passes, but 2 errors have shown up, so stopped the test as per your instructions.
Have uploaded photo.

You know what to do

Addition:
If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

Off to work shortly, so will pull out a stick before I go and run memtest all day.

8 passes, zero error on first stick. Now to test in other 3 slots, yes?

By placing them in each dimm I take it we are testing the slots?

You switch each module from slot, note the results per test and after all tests are done you check the result to find out what slot/module is the cause of the errors

No worries. Do you need me to check in, or just wait for all test to be done?
