Still restarting. I've been busy, the restarts are less frequent somehow, so they are mostly annoying rather than a critical fix item. I don't have any minidumps from the May time period as I did a clean install and forgot to back them up. (See below)


Windows update had somehow sneakily installed updates after I told it not to (specifically, "download updates but do not install them" somehow means "install them anyway"). I decided to do a clean install after Microsoft disabled my option to hide the taskbar by always having it up even if a full screen window was in use (to shamelessly promote their little Windows 10 upgrade icon).

I just refreshed the computer with a clean install, making notes on how exactly to set it up the way I had it before. It definitely boots quicker without those several Gigs of bloated updates though. In the middle of my testing period (after everything was installed) it restarted again (this was during a game, I don't remember which one, but I started them all in order for them to install Direct X, do first time setup, etc..). Same exact error as all the other minidumps. Bugcheck 0124.

I'm not sure what to do...

I did note that voltages in my BIOS seem to go from 11.95 V to about 12.05 V, one time when I was in there. I'm not sure if it varying like that is good or bad.

Are you still running the old Seagate HDD?

Yes, it is the only HDD I have availiable

EDIT: Do you think it has something to do with it restarting?

It's possible, if the CPU, GPU and RAM all passed the stress tests I'd put it down to the HDD (even though it passed the tests) or the motherboard, there's little else it could be. The HDD is obviously the cheapest and easiest component to replace to test. I'm pretty much baffled as to why it's restarting to be honest, you don't have any Gigabyte software installed this time round do you?

I've only glanced through this thread quickly and I have not looked over the logs so I may have missed something, so forgive me if I overlooked the obvious.
But I wanted to share a couple thoughts.

Many times when no BSOD happens, and it justs reboots, it points to a PSU issue. Either bad connection or simply defective.
Looks as if you have a good Corsair 650W Power Supply in your build, but that doesn't mean it couldn't possibly be the culprit.

Hardware, such as Motherboard, RAM, GPU, CPU etc will typically leave some trace of of a clue. Or at least show their ugly heads during those stress tests. I would think the HD would show some abnormal test results as well.
Unless maybe a bad SATA cable looses connection on occasion causing a reboot?? Perhaps the drive is good and passes tests but intermittently losses its connection to the MOBO.


Boozad is certainly doing the right things and I do not mean to interfere.

Im just saying, do not overlook the PSU as a possible culprit, even though it may be decent one and even brand new.
The easiest way to check is if you have a spare somewhere, or in another PC you could swap out a day or so.
It very well may be just fine, but don't overlook it.

The fact everything is passing stress tests, and the issue persists would have me checking into the PSU a bit deeper. Along with the suggestions that have already been made.


I'm assuming your copy of Windows as well as all software are legit? Just to rule that out as any possible cause. If not, Id wipe everything and start from scratch with legit software.

No Gigabyte software. the only thing I installed from the Gigabyte cd was the Realtech LAN driver as that's needed else the internet won't connect.

To be honest this is why I'd left the PSU to the back of the queue, it's a quality brand with a more than decent rating, but it certainly could be the issue. Really appreciate the input.

Possibly, but I think I've had this unit too long to RMA it. I bought the PSU on 09 Feb 15.

I don't have a spare unfortunately, this is my first build. I've checked the cables before, I can do it again, but I'm sure they're all connected right. Could it be a short somewhere? Maybe a grounding issue? How can I test that idea?

All software is completely legal, so it's not that.

EDIT: Actually I just read that my PSU has a 3-year warranty, so I might call up Corsair to see if they can help.

It's definitely worth calling them, in my experience their customer service is excellent. Feel free to point them to this thread if needs be.
