Windows 7: BSOD Happens Randomly

I left Real Temp on for a while, and played some Diablo 2. Let me know if there's something specific I should do with it on. Here are the temps:

Minimums
38 36 37 36

Maximums
66 58 59 57

Also the memtest did 15 passes overnight, no errors.

CPU Vcore is the right one.
The other three are the system rail voltages, basically the 3v, 5v, 12v power supply feeds.

For these voltages in your BIOS look under 'Cell Menu' and scroll down.

Look for DRAM voltage.

For the integrated memory controller, look for 'CPU Vtt Voltage'.

If these only show a offset option, +0.001, select the smallest value increase. It should then show you the voltage number.


Are you using the Intel stock CPU cooler?
The temps look like the stock cooler, which are usually high compared to a $25-40 after market CPU cooler.
If you are running games and other high load programs, I would suggest a different CPU cooler. There are several that will keep your temps at idle 28c (room temp) full load 58c.

Ugh, I posted but didn't see that it had an error and didn't go through. I've been having a lot of trouble posting here; sometimes it takes 4 or 5 tries for a post to go through.

I got the numbers:

CPU Vtt Voltage
Auto: 1.097V
Min: .451V
Max: 2.018V

DRAM Voltage
Auto: 1.600V
Min: .978V
Max: 1.898V

I'm pretty sure I have the stock cooler, but I don't really play any high load games, and the BSODs don't seem to happen any more frequently when playing games.

Bump your CPU Vtt Voltage to 1.150v then run memtest86+ again for minimum 7 passes or overnight.

Let us know the results.


When was your last BSoD?

I set the voltage to 1.149V (the closest it would go) and ran memtest overnight, no errors. I realized though that I've been using memtest86, not memtest86+. Should I redo the test tonight with that one instead? Also, I haven't gotten a BSOD since I've posted on here. They don't happen all that frequently, but this is a good sign

Good news.

I would get the memtest86+ and run the test again, just to be sure.

Just want to let you know that I ran the test (no errors) and haven't gotten a BSOD still. I'm going to pronounce it fixed unless it happens again. Thanks so much for your help

Good news.

Let us know if there are no crashes after a week.
