Windows 7: BSOD in DAO/Rift after Win7 32 - 64 upgrade

Had no issues w/the old DDR2 I had in the sys previously. Didn't start having problems until I performed a 'series' of upgrades at once i.e. RAM/OS/Video Card/CPU. Video card literally 'blew up' lol fan pcs everywhere day 4. Thought I had bad RAM then though the standard Windows Memory Test is >< so was going to do the 'manual' test. Opened the case to find fan parts in everything O.o Sent back card and decided not to get the same one again hehe. Got BSOD's again but random and only w/Rift. Used Beta drivers, had no issues for a bit. Then out of the blue this started again and the frequency was 78x in 4 days Eeek. Since it coincided w/the Nvidia update thought it was the culprit. However after several Memtest86 runs I know at the very least I have one bad stick.
Still on the fence about the Mobo though.. It is 2 yrs old and P5QC's have several forum posts about DDR3 issues when running dual channel. Getting replacement for RAM on Tues guess I'll have to see how it goes then... Wish me luck and again TYVM!

I see, I didn't realize your board was DDR2 and DDR3 compatible, I assumed it was all DDR3.

I can't imagine that the system would run stably if both DDR2 and DDR3 are being used at the same time. Try removing all DDR2, and test the DDR3 only.

Oh no LOL! I wouldn't run both at the same time O.o I meant I previously 'had' DDR2 before upgrading and the system has both types of slots. And although I have DDR3 now inserted in the DDR3 slots (2 only on this Mobo) when running "Memtest86" it is identifying one of the DDR3 slots as a DDR2 one. Wondering if this is an issue w/the Mobo itself, although the Mobo Bios Post shows the RAM as DDR3.
To clarify, when I tested the RAM in the DDR3 (1st) slot it passed. However, when I tested the RAM in the DDR3 (2nd slot) one of the sticks failed at the exact same point that Memtest86 showed the initial fail when running two sticks of DDR3 on the test.
Sry to be confusing!

Ah okay. I'd go ahead with the RAM replacement, as that's the most likely. Is it still under warranty?

Good luck, and nice troubleshooting work.

Sure is They advanced RMA'd it to me since it's only 3wks old. Setup a ticket w/ASUS also 'just in case' I need to RMA the Mobo ugh. It is 2 yrs old but no way hubby was letting me build another brand new sys yet, so had to upgrade what I could for now. They no longer make this Mobo and it's the best out of the 775 socket mobo's out there for upgradability. Hubby is swearing enough already about the upgrades I got for my existing sys, so not pushing my luck w/building my 'next complete new gaming sys' until my birthday or xmas LOL!

Update: Installed the new RAM I received and ran Memtest86, no errors. Haven't had a BSOD since I swapped the 'Suspected' Bad RAM stick out. Ironically though, I ran numerous Memtest86 tests w/varied results going from 'Fine' with both sticks installed to 'Bad' w/both sticks installed. Next both showed 'fine' in the second slot then finally 'OMG BAD BAD BAD' right out the gate on the second stick in the first slot! Guess the trick w/that utility is to run it various times, w/both sticks, then with single sticks alternating slots. And if it passes all of the above, then it's good!

Lastly, I put a new heatsink on my CPU that greatly resembles a Wind Tunnel lol! Confusing part is the reading I get on ASUS PC Probe is 10 degrees lower than OCCT O.o. As far as OCCT shows, there is absolutely no temp change from the stock fan I had that came w/the intel processor..
Is there a reliable CPU temp monitor you can suggest? Just testing temp by pulling off case I'm guessing that OCCT is the incorrect one, since it's 'Very' cool inside w/6 fans and the 'Wind Tunnel'. TYVM again for all your help!

Glad to hear it, you're welcome.

I personally use and recommend Speedfan for the temps. I find that's a pretty simple program that does the trick.
