Windows 7: BSOD very random - All tied to ntoskrnl.exe as crash address

Here's what I have. CPU-Z shots and since I'm not the most seasoned BIOS guy, I nabbed shots of most of the settings in there that seemed to be related to voltage (hope that's okay, wasn't sure what I was trying to find).

Your RAM is overclocked. Load setup/optimized defaults through the BIOS Exit screen, save, and exit. AMD processors do not like RAM running at 800/1600 levels without some major BIOS tweaks.

If the BIOS reset does not do the trick, I will walk you through steps to manually set the frequency.


Check the CPU-Z Memory tab again to make sure the DRAM Frequency is below 800 MHz after loading the BIOS settings.

Nevermind, I see your RAM is XMP. XMP works with Intel boards. It does not play well with AMD hardware. Try to find some non-XMP RAM for the system and see if the system is more stable.

Again, many thanks, writhziden. I'll go ahead and mark this as resolved. Fortunately, I ran into some contacts I have at NVIDIA who are offering to help me get everything sorted or new equipment if needed. So far, I have a couple techs claiming I can tweak a few more things but hey, if that doesn't work, RAM is fairly cheap so I am relieved either way.

Your help has been super educational and I'm now armed with more knowledge. For that, I can't thank you enough. Keep up the great work, I hope you know how much it's appreciated.
