Windows 7: BSOD every +- 3 Days ERROR 0x0000007B

BSOD every +- 3 Days ERROR 0x0000007B

Hi Guys

I build a new pc a few months ago, with the following specs.:

CPU: Intel i5 2500K
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4
SSD: Corsair Force GT 60GB (Running Windows 7 (64-Bit))
HDD: 2x Seagate 1TB 7200rpm (Storage Devices)
RAM: 2x 4GB = 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz
Power Supply: Cooler Master GX 750Watt
CPU Cooling: Zalman CNPS 11x
Tower: HAF X Nvidia Edition

I've overclocked my pc to 4.5GHz

In the BIOS I've made the following changes:

MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.) / Advanced Frequency Settings:

Clock Ratio [45 X]

In Advanced CPU Core Features I changed:
Real-Time Ratio Changes In OS [Disabled]
Intel(R) Turbo Boost Tech. [Disabled]
CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) [Disabled]
C3/C6 State Support [Disabled]
CPU Thermal Monitor [Disabled]
CPU EIST Function [Disabled]
Bi-Derectional PROCHOT [Disabled]

System Memory Multiplier (SPD) [16.00]

In Advanced Memory Settings I changed:
Performance Enhance [Extreme]
DRAM Timing Selectable (SPD) [Expert]

In Advanced Voltage Settings I changed:
Multi-Step Load-Line [Level 8]
CPU Vcore [1.350V]
QPI/Vtt Voltage [ 1.100V]

Then under Integrated Peripherals I changed:
PCH SATA Control Mode [AHCI]
GSATA Ctrl mode [AHCI]

At first AHCI gave me problem booting, although I Enabled Device Driver in Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci,
but also had to Enable Device Driver under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV to be able to Run SSD true speed.

Anyway... All good, CPUZ and Prine 95 all happy. 48 hour endurance
No problem, nothing. Here, 2 days later... Boom!

BSOD, restart and can't seem to pick up my SSD.
It automatically reset BIOS settings to Ratio - 33X and RAM - 1333MHz

And also ask for Boot Disk... Power off... Wait a few seconds, start up all is good again, except Overclock settings are gone.

Help Please?!

You don't have any dump files attached. Make sure Windows is configured to create dump files.
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Run the following stress tests:
Stress test your CPU using Intel Burn Test.
CPU - Stress Test Using IntelBurnTest

Test your RAM using Memtest86+. Let it run until 6-8 passes have completed or errors have been found.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Hi JaidynM

Can't seem to find any dump or mini dump files anywhere...

I set all my Overclocking setting up again, ran Intel Burst Test, everything 100%
I ran Memtest86+, everything is 100%

I made one change in BIOS though. In Advanced Memory Settings I changed:
Performance Enhance to [Standard]

Is was recommended by the system "When overclocking, it is recommended to keep "Standard""

No BSOD so far... Any tips...?

BSOD just occur!

PC restarted, SSD not to be detected again... Shut PC down for a few seconds, restarted, RAM Frequency of 1600MHz down clocked to 1333 automatically and picked up the SSD again.

New BSOD Code: 0x000000F4

If the SSD is not detected try the following:

  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
  4. Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
  5. Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
  6. Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
  7. Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
  8. Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
  9. Do steps 1-3 and replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
  10. Repeat steps 1-4.
  11. Start your computer normally and run Windows.

The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.
If you run the BSOD Dump collection app it will find the dumps and other needed info for you.

The power cycle can be used if the SSD is not detected.

You don't have any files attached.

The file I'm trying to attach is "NOT allowed"

Anyway... Just got another BSOD STOP : 0x0000007A Error this time...

How can I get hold of those Dump files. Windows are activated to create dump, mini dump and kernal dump files in C:\Windows\ But nothing...???
