Windows 7: BSOD on Brand new Self-Built PC..

Oke
The RAM timings were already 9-9-9-24 so i changed CMD to 2 in both channels (Although it still says 1 under Timing and 2 under Control)

I Set QPI/Vtt Voltage to 1.150V (Didn't have 1.140V)

I Set DRAM Voltage to 1.560V (Didn't have 1.550V)

Will check cold boot tomorrow morning.

Cold booted 5 minutes ago and got loads of errors again on memtest. -.-

Do we have any other options other than to send it back to the Company?
Because to be really honest, i would rather cold-boot it into a BSOD (for the rest of my life ) turn it off then have it be alright.

Edit: Just got a new BSOD while opening World of Warcraft saying: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

Change the QPI/VTT to 1.20v.
Your max is 1.21v, I wouldn't recommend going over 1.20v.

DRAM Voltage to 1.60v.
Max is 1.65v.
You must maintain a max of 0.50v difference between QPI/VTT and DRAM or risk damaging the CPU, according to Intel specs.

Check for stability, at the next cold boot.


If it still crashes try the QPI/VTT at 1.20v and DRAM at 1.65v

Check for stability, at the next cold boot.

If this doesn't work then you should RMA the RAM, if it's faulty and gets errors it might fail completely at some point.
New RAM will likely stop the blue screens during your games.
If there is no improvement, return QPI/VTT to 1.10v and DRAM to 1.50v.

Let us know the results.

Entering the BIOS brought up a message in a red frame saying that system boot failed because of overclocking or something about voltages and was asking me to set the settings back to default..i pressed esc and set the QPI/Vtt to 1.21V (there wasn't 1.20V) and DRAM to 1.60V.
Will cold boot later on and then try DRAM with 1.65V.

Will get back to you later on.

That's interesting, none of the voltages are past max settings, shouldn't have had that message.

Try it a see if it will boot, after it's cold.

If it won't boot, re-set to origional settings, QPI/VTT to 1.10v and DRAM to 1.50v.

I would say your next step is to RMA the RAM.
This is the most likely faulty hardware, if it turns out to be the same issues then we can trouble shoot other hardware.

Dave my system cold booted fine. without any BSOD.
Is this the end?


Edit: Spoke too soon i think...I went in the other room to celebrate, came back to a BSOD.
Then got a BSOD at startup after setting DRAM Voltage to 1.64V (i think due to unstable system)

So setting everything back to normal and when i get a chance (and after the strikes) will RMA my RAM's.

You had my hopes up for a second, sorry to hear that it didn't help.

Even if it ran at those max settings I wouldn't want to keep it like that, best thing is to return the RAM and hopefully it will run solid and stable with the new RAM.

Let us know how it's running when you get the new RAM installed.
