Windows 7: Windows 7 BSOD issues

So far 2 passes with QPi voltage at 1.22v, Dram 1.58v, no errors yet, couple more passes and i'll try downloading seatools to check for hdd issues.
As long as this isn't a mobo issue, or even worse a psu issue...

Ok no luck pass 2 and a error, setting Qpi at 1.24

Even worse at OPi 1.24, 3 errors at pass 2 compared to the usual 1
Quick BSOD at 1.26

Giving up with the voltage tweaking, it's either causing more errors, or does nothing

Going to reinstall windows, good thing i have most of my files backed up

You have good components, that motherboard doesn't have many issues in forums and Seasonic is a good PSU, but failures do happen even to the best.

If you are doing another memtest, set the command rate to 2T. The first four RAM timings should be 8-8-8-22, the rest on auto.
Your mobo will default to (1066) 533 RAM frequency.

Not good news on the memtest results.
With the tests you have ran and the cold booting errors, I would suggest you RMA all three RAM cards.
Get Corsair to confirm the RAM is compatible with your mobo.

If you can test with any other suitable RAM it would confirm the cause.
There is a high probability that it is the RAM failing but, the other possibilities are the HDD as mentioned, motherboard, PSU and due to the memory controller being on the CPU it is suspect as well.

This is how I would rank the possibilities.

Let us know how it's going.

On a note, nearly all bsod's lately have been either NTFS file , or Memory_Management, not sure if it's related or means both HDD and Mem is bad. Also for some reason seatools does not work on any of my drives, neither the raid 0 setup, or even my backup drive.

Going to try rma-ing my ram, but seems the corsair site is down?, but their forums are fine.

One last test though, Qpi to 1.3v, and command rate to t2, another read suggested since i have sli video cards northbridge voltage should be higher

So far 30 minutes in no bsod, had explorer crash once, only issue now is my formerly working wlan usb cannot connect to any network, it's able to detect them but for some odd reason cannot connect.

I've run chkdsk before, does not seem to find errors, command prompt closes the instant it finishes

Still no bsod, not even after a few restarts, and only 2 explorer crashes, i'm really hoping this is *fixed* for this comp.

Did you change the RAM timings from post #43?

It's a small change but maybe it will help, the command rate change to 2T might make a difference.

Yeah i did, i changed the command rate and the Qpi Voltage to 1.3v.
For now i have not had a single BSOD since changing those, and also a minimal amount of windows errors, i hope this will be how it'll stay, but it's hard to say, Sometimes this pc works with no problems, othertimes i can barely get it to start.

Have ran Prime95?

CPU - Stress Test with Prime95

As with any stress testing, there are some risks involved, watch the CPU core temps and you will be fine.
If you don't feel comfortable stressing your system, then don't.

First open Speed Fan or Real Temp and monitor your CPU core temps.
Your CPU max core temp is 72.9 deg C, go to the link below and look for Tcase that temp is for the CPU case, you add 5 deg C for max CPU core temps.
Intel® Core™ i7-950 Processor


Open prime95, if it's running the test, click the 'Test' tab then 'Stop'.

Click the 'Advanced' tab, select 'Round off checking'

In the 'Options' tab select 'torture Test...' then select 'Blend'

This will test CPU and RAM.

There are lots of views on how long this test should be ran.
Hardcore OC'ers say 12-24 hours.
I have seen some OC'ers say 2 hours is enough.
For stress testing, I would say 1-2 hours will tell you if it is going to BSoD.

Let us know the results.

Gaah, after a good 12 hours of stability it crashed, ntfs.sys, unusual it crashed while gaming this time though, and another crash on reboot, as usual.

Running chkdsk /r now, has been on step 4 file 257 for about 15 mins so far.

On a note although i did get a bsod it feels like the nb voltage increase reduced the bsod frequency, reading around on what other people did with their dominator gt sets i think raising the dram/nb voltage a bit more would not be a bad idea, to certain limits of course. Going to test the qti at 1.3(current settings) with dram at 1.58

after chkdsk, regretting using it at this time, really don't want to leave pc on overnight but 470 million free clusters... 5 hours in and about 11% complete.

oh boy....13% in about 7 hours, this will be fun.

Chkdsk done, on a note with mem voltage at 1.65, qtt 1.35, if i see one more memory management bsod i am considering rma-ing this ram, and getting hyperx to replace it.
