Windows 7 Ultimate x64
BSOD, 2(first on this PC) in last 24h. 0x000000f4 - Win7 Ultimate 64

Event ID 1001 Details
0x000000f4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xfffffa80084ff060, 0xfffffa80084ff340, 0xfffff80002fce8b0

Specs: Win7 Ultimate 64
MB: ASRock H61M/U3S3
OS HDD: C:=Patriot Pyro SSD
DATA HDD: D:= Seagate ST2000DL003 2TB(using 1 GB partition atm)
Ram: 8GB 1.35v Crucial(during BSOD's - downgraded back to the orig 4GB 1.5v Crucial)

Hello, I upgraded from (2) sticks of Crucial 1.5V 4Gb total ram to 2 sticks of 1.35V of crucisl ram(8 GB total) 3 days ago. This morning my computer was stuck rebooting, it hung at the HDD portion of the boot process. Somehow the HDD priority sent over to the D drive. I reset, went into Bios and set the C drive Patriot Pyro as the primary, rebooted and all was well for a few hours. I cam back tonight to see that at 9 the same thing happened. I've since regressed to the orig RAM and we'll see if it happens again. in the mean time I've also attached my BSOD files to see if its something else all together.

Thanks for your time and help

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
maybe a fix

2 Weeks ago I manually set the Memory voltage to 1.35 in the bios, and it took until tonight to get my last BSoD. Ive since dd a little research and came across these tips:

BIOS Setting: per;
Disable aggressive sata link state management
Disable Super I/O

Registry: per; Error message when you start a Windows 7 or Windows Vista-based computer after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive: "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE"
Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci Start key= 0
Set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV Start key= 0

Patriot Pyro SSD Firmware: Per; Patriot Memory
Update to Rev. 3.3.2
I like the chances of this one based on the release notes(see highlight):
3.3.2 Release Notes

- Added Nand Support
- Addresses Drive Timeout Issue
- Fixed SMART attributes log calculation -Optimizes Drive Read to improve ECC errors
- Improves Secure Erase operation to ensure Drive is Idle for improved stability
- Addresses S3/S4 power cycling issue on boot drives which resulted in BSoDs
- Addresses issues with READ/WRITE commands during power up
- Addresses issues during Firmware Updates
- Changed firmware Identify Parameters during commands
- Addresses Trim support issue which resulted in the drive freezing
- Addresses issue on primary boot drives waking from sleep mode and hanging
I'll update this post again in a month if the system stabilizes
