Windows 7: Windows 7 BSOD issues

So far the 3rd stick has no errors yet, on the 3rd pass, ram sticks are on the 2,4,6 slots i think, the cpu heatsink SCMG-2100 blocks the first dimm.

That is a nice looking heatsink

We are making good progress, keep us updated with the test results.

There is a new BIOS FC for your mobo but, the change log says it's for SATA3 changes. This shouldn't affect your issues.
Might come back to this.

There are a few new drivers listed, Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (rev. 2.0), Check if any are newer than what you have, install the Intel SATA RAID Drive 9.6.0.1014 if you don't have it already.

so far 5th pass and no errors for a single module, since it's getting late i'll probably stop at the 6th pass, all ram passes individually but has one error when using all 3, i will read into that a bit.

This is pointing to a need for a NB voltage bump, your manual says it is at 1.15v, let's bump it to 1.2v.

I'll check your manual for the BIOS location of the NB voltage, I'll post back in a few minutes or you can check back tomorrow.

Here is the link to the Gigabyte compatible RAM list for your mobo,
Qualified Vendors List (QVL)

Your GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 manual


Page 40 of your manual, QPI/Vtt voltage on auto is 1.150v.
change it to 1.20v.

In your BIOS > MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.) scroll down near the bottom you will see QPI/Vtt voltage.

Run memtest86+ with all three cards in slots 2,4 and 6 as mentioned above.
If you get an error you can stop the test.

Let us know the results.

According to my bios the qti/vtt voltage is already set to 1.200 on automatic settings.

On a note i noticed ram timings were actually set on quick, and not auto, changing that to auto and maybe it'll fix it, or not testing all 3 sticks again, seconds after i said something about auto fixing it i get a error in pass 1.

Anyways i have finally gotten rid of my old wlan usb card, cleaned out its drivers, and installed a new wlan card, that should be compatible with win 7. I've also changed the QPI/Vtt voltage to 1.20 manual, and the Dram voltage to 1.6

There doesn't seem to be any single thing that always causes a bsod since it's usually random so i can't really test stability outside memtest.

Couple random bsods again, ntfs.sys, fltmgr.sys, one while i was on firefox, the other while copying files from one hdd to ssd.

It's going to take a while to figure out what the right voltages are, tweak to 1.600, 1.200 seems to increase the amount of bsod's, have gotten 2, as well as a few while the system is trying to start

If you're getting more BSODs, set the RAM voltage to 1.55v, QPI/Vtt leave at 1.20v, run memtest86+ again.


The quick setting for RAM allows all the RAM cards to be adjusted at the same time.
Setting to Auto should re-set them to one of the JEDEC settings, which should help, post the CPUZ 'Memory' tab again.

Try bumping the QPI/Vtt voltage, the smallest increment should be 0.01v, slowly increase the voltage by this amount, don't exceed 1.30v.
After each bump run memtest86+, if you get an error stop the test and bump again.
You need to find the lowest voltage that will run stable.

Let us know the current RAM timings.

the smallest voltage increment in my mobo is 0.02v, i'll keep trying that until it gets stable, hopefully. On another note is it possible that this issue might even be caused by a hard drive problem? very often during the bsod, the computer will make a couple loud clicks, which i've assumed was the dmp file getting written, but i've read that it might be one of the hdd's is failing.

On any note the bios shows timing at 8-8-8-20 at the moment

Yes, that is a possible cause of the BSODs.

Go to the Seagate website and D/L Seatools, run the HDD diag.

Also check for a firmware update for your HDD.
