My problem is I'm not getting BSOD's anymore, just the whole PC crashes when I open uTorrent.

my system's uptime is 20 hours now, because i havent opened uTorrent.

If i do it will crash within 20 minutes.

I like the looks of Chev65's tweak. Esp. since you are driving 2Gb x4. Bump up the northbridge voltage one notch and test. Also, make sure you have the latest uTorrent.

Regarding the PSU - I drive a CL 500. That doesn't mean I will never have a problem with it.

This fix has been known to fix Crashes, BSOD, and general instablity. For Win 7 and 4GB it seems that using more than the default northbridge voltage is required to be stable.

This fix has surprized many people and not only on this forum. This is the third time I've posted this fix here and it seems to work for someone everytime.

I'm not sure about the Utorrent deal though, I never had any problems running Utorrent. Most of the problems occur when moving files accross the network which tends to load the memory controller causing instablity if the NB voltages aren't up high enough, even on systems running stock CPU settings. Maybe someday I'll have more than one Rep point LOL.

Actually, you post links to threads with a cryptic reference to what the reader will find. That behavior emulates malware. This will not earn rep points from those members with higher rep points to give.

This is as much a teaching platform as it is a learning environment. What you have uncovered with this suggestion is significant, if not profoundly intuitive. Keep up the good work and conform.

You will be assimilated.

haha I'm just very wary of upping the northbridge. I don't want to overclock at all, i know it's not massive, but anything above stock is overclocked and to be honest, Windows 7 should NOT require this. My CPU has a FSB of 1333 why would this need to be upped? My ram is only 800mhz...

Win7 is beta - that means it may not be stable.
While I don't mess with the voltages/BIOS settings any longer, I do recognize the need to test to see if it fixes things.

I'd try the voltage "tweak" mentioned. If you're unsure about it, up it one setting at a time. Watch for instability. If you get problems, revert back to the previous settings to verify that it was the settings causing it.

Then you'll have the information that you need. You can either revert back to stock settings, or keep the settings that work for you.

To be honest I've come to the conclusion it's a lot more hassle than it's worth. My system is rock solid stable except for uTorrent, so I'm just going to use a different torrent program. I've seen on the uTorrent forums that there are numerous people running Win7 with this problem so I'm going to assume it will be fixed in their next build and until then use a different client.

Cheers

Many forums all over are complaining about ASUS mobo's in reference to Win7 X64. Also many bios do not default the PCIE settings on the Video cards.
he also shows different monitors, and different Video cards. Not sure if he has all them installed, and trying to use. at the same time .. All manufactures do RECOMMEND that all Video cards, (be of the same type and manufacture).
not sure if the same is recommended on dual monitors, but it would make since, to have twin or nearly identical monitors.

Windows 7 100% supports 2 WDDM drivers, as did windows XP. Windows Vista does not. The 4 monitor thing is perfectly fine - I tried it with only one card installed and it still encountered the same error. Cheers.
