Windows 7: Persistent BSOD when using Adobe CS4

The version with the options is MemTest86 3.5 or 4.0 as I recall.
It's different from MemTest86+
The +is a new branch by a different group of people.

If that doesn't work for you, then try Prime95. While not as effective a memory test, it does stress nearly all of your memory (and it does it in Windows) when using the Blend test.

Hi Folks,

Well I have tried Prime95 and it works fine, but the heat is too much I think - core temps quickly up into the 80's and after a few minutes they are closer to 90 and so I stopped until I have resolved these. I see other I7-950 users are having similar issues. What should the temps be - anyone got a guide?

The crashing problems I think I may be on to something, but I am still trying it out before making a definite statement - however, at present I have suspended Carbonite and as yet I have not crashed the machine. I have done a fair bit of encore work, but not much premiere pro and so it may be misleading - promising though and I will post again as soon as there is any definite solution.

If you have heat issues with Prime95 - then you do need to work on your cooling.
IMO temps should be in the 40șC to 50șC range - but that's just a ballpark that I use (not being familiar with the newer i7-950's).

80's and 90's are definitely too high - so that'd make the 60's and 70's on the border (I'd say 60's weren't too bad, while 70's were a cause for concern).

The point is, the higher the temps, the more likely you are to have errors (and higher temps also reduce the life expectancy of your CPU)

Hi Again,

I increased the speed of the top fan on the case and dropped the temperature of the cores by 10C to a maximum of 83 when running Prime95 for 12 hours.

The Prime test was successful - I assume you have to stop it eventually - and the machine is defintiely more stable since I disabled Carbonite but it is not completely fixed. I need more history and so I'll be back in week or so.

Well I know it was a LONG time ago. I gave up for a while, and then tried to put up with it, but finally my brother put a new cooling fan on the CPU for me, he reset the cooler with new paste and hey presto - the problem has gone completely.

It WAs heat.

Thanks
