OK HERE WE GO!
its good news in away

i think we may have something?!

i tested ram again (WITHOUT CHANGING VOLTAGE cause i couldnt find the specific voltage you told me)
and i got this within 30 secs
Attachment 149643

this is odd as i ran the test about a week ago for hours and got nothing :S

so ill run it again soon i have to step out atm but i wanted to post to you so you guys could see where we are at and TRY and solve this issue

thanks heaps

So you have some bad RAM it looks like. That shouldn't cause a 124 (that is from CPU voltage).

So you still think bump up the CPU voltage?

If it keeps BSODing, yes. That is the only fix unless the hardware is bad.

It is possible that memtest86+ will not show errors everytime, but the settings need adjusting.
Just the nature of electronics.

The BIOS setting is in 'Advanced Voltage Settings', 'Motherboard Voltage Control', under 'CPU'.
Same as the 4th BIOS snip in post #28.
Look for 'QPI/Vtt Voltage'.

It is currently set at 1.10v change it to 1.15v.
Then run memtest86+ for 12 hours, overnight.

Quote:
In your 4th BIOS snip your QPI/Vtt Voltage is set at stock 1.10v.

With total 8GB RAM, 4 RAM cards and 2GB cards, any one of these can require a memory controller voltage bump, with all three you definitely need to increase the memory controller (QPI/Vtt) Voltage.

Change the QPI/Vtt Voltage to 1.15v.
Run memtest86+ for 12 hours, as suggested by Lordbob. If you get any errors, stop the test and let us know.

What did it go to?

Use the 1.170v setting.
Keep it at or below 1.20v.
