memory mainly, or in a system that high power, it could even be a lack of power at the wall socket, not that the psu is actually bad, but the wall socket you have it plugged into isn't keeping up.

I tried flashing the BIOS to an earlier version (0904) and that didn't help. I still got another BSOD in Crysis 2 today.

This time, the error was 0x1000007e and the driver it pointed to was lvrs64.sys which is Logitech related.

Anyway, Perhaps I can try to connect to another wall-socket or connect some of the devices to another wall socket (everything including monitors, speaker system, a couple of lights etc. are connected to one socket for my system) and check it out.

I will test each card by itself and see if they cause any issues. I will also try different PCI-E slots on the motherboard.

I've attached the new dump files so please look at them and let me know what I should do. Also, do you think I should uninstall and reinstall the Logitech software (I have the C910 webcam and the Performance MX mouse)?

that would be the logitech camera drivers.
You aren't the first person I've seen have trouble with it, there is a 2008 version and a 2009 version of the driver for it, you want the 2009.

To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.

also follow the above directions.
It will disable the somewhat random power management win 7 tries to apply to the usb devices. It may prevent that problem if the driver is crashing because of a power management command it doesn't understand.

I changed the Power Management settings as you've described.

I got another BSOD (before I changed the Power Management stuff) again!

This time, the driver it pointed to was kbdhid.sys which refers to the keyboard!

It seems like the system is choosing some driver/device or other to fail and cause the BSOD! It is so aggravating.

By the way, I have Norton installed. It has worked perfectly all this time. Do you recommend I uninstall it and install Microsoft Security Essentials instead? Should I try that before doing any hardware changes (like testing one GPU at a time etc.)?

I've attached the files from the latest BSOD. This Tri-SLI business seems to be a real doozy.. My system was working perfectly when I had the GTX-590 Quad-SLI!

it would almost appear to be a usb problem which surprise is the one thing we haven't checked on.
Can you get this tool to work for you?
Intel® Driver Update Utility
best to open with IE probably.

I tried running that utility but nothing happened.

However, I had another BSOD late last night and this time, it was 0x116 again! This time, bluescreenview shows CT20XUT.SYS as the cause which is related to Creative (my soundcard) but I had just reinstalled the drivers for that as well!

This definitely points to the graphics (most likely faulty card) since I had reinstalled the NVidia drivers (after using Driver Sweeper to uninstall the previous install) and also removed Norton Internet Security and installed MSE instead.

I will test each card separately and see what I can come up with. Any suggestions on how to best test each card? I guess gaming is the best benchmark right?

I've attached the dump files from the latest BSOD here.

actually the most recent dump is pointing to the nvidia stuff again.
You did run driver sweeper on both the video drivers and the nvidia control panel in safe mode right?
then reinstalled latest pack.
I'm wondering if we didn't miss something.

So, the issue is finally resolved!

It turned out that one of the cards was indeed faulty (the middle one)!

I tested each card by itself and tested all the PCI-E slots on the motherboard with a good card and there were no errors. The middle card ran the benchmarks like Unigine 2.5 and 3DMark Vantage fine but crashed with a STOP code of 0x116 when I played Bad Company 2! The other two cards were rock solid during gaming both BC2 and Crysis 2; no hiccups at all! So I returned that card and got a new one and just finished testing it with several benchmarks and games! I reinstalled the drivers of course (275.33 WHQL) and they work beautifully!

Thanks a lot for the help! I'm so glad I didn't have to reinstall the OS or get another PSU!

As bad as it sounds I believe my overall ratio of doa video cards over the years probably is about 1 in 3. .... seems really high compared to everything else.
