Prime95 finished all three tests, on the last test two threads had 1 error...

Once you confirm its hardware, please advise what tests i can do to confirm this...

As well I have repped Maguscreed for all his help so far...

That's most likely indicative of a bad CPU. There aren't really tests to "confirm" bad hardware. The only way to test is unfortunately by swapping parts.

What type of PSU do you have? Is your CPU under any warranty? If you swap it out and the problems still exist then you might have a bad motherboard.

I looked at quite a few of these, and almost all of these have an active IRP. Unfortunately, none of the minidumps would have this information - we will need a kernel memory dump to catch this. Further minidumps will be useless.

I have a 430 W Antec PSU


CPU is under warranty... brand new (sandy bridge chip, using B3 so mobo was switched)

where is the memory.dmp located?

If you configure Windows for a kernel or complete memory dump in system properties (and reboot), the next crash should put a dump in the \Windows folder called memory.dmp.

You might want to try picking up a higher wattage PSU, preferably a Corsair, from your local computer shop. Just make sure you can return it. If you hook it up and the BSOD stop then you can blame your PSU. If they continue then it's most likely the CPU unless Cluberti finds something in the Memory.dmp.

The memory.dmp, if its been created, will be located in your C drive. If there isn't one there then you need to change the debugging information to write a kernel dump instead of a mini dump. Type advanced system settings in the start search and hit enter. Under Startup and Recovery hit settings. Change the Write debugging information from small memory dump to kernel memory dump. The next time your computer BSOD it should create C:\MEMORY.DMP. Upload that file to a 3rd party site (it will be like 200mb) and post the link here.

hmmm, interesting thought... i have yet to experience a crash, the only difference is that BOINC is NOT enabled...

This could lead to two conclusions...

A) BOINC was causing the crashing
B) Its a hardware issue and because the CPU was being stressed it was BSODing

System has been up for two days... it has lasted a week but just thought id post this to get your thoughts on this...

System crashed, BOINC was not enabled so I guess i was wrong... Anyways below is the memory dump 84MB compressed 700MB uncompressed...
