Windows 7: Random BSOD, Always when running Prime95

Random BSOD, Always when running Prime95

Hopefully someone can help with a problem that's baffling me.

I have a AMD FX (tm)-8150 Eight Core.

It gets random blue screens with a different driver and cause in the dump every time.

If I do a stress test with prime 95 it will crash and blue screen everytime.

If I change the processors in windows 7 (64bit) to use only 4 cores it will run fine with out any errors or blue screens can do the stress test on them 4 cores with no problem..

Highest recorded temp is 49c on 8 cores and then it crashes.
Highest recorded temp is 44c on 5 cores and is stable.
49c still isn't high but as it hit 49c and crashed every time I reseated the processor.

I did notice that the mother board has a 8 pin esp CPU but only had 4 pins from PSU. So i changed PSU to one that had 8 Pins still same problem.

Also did memtest86 and that was fine.

I've included the dumps, hopefully someone can help. If you need any information just ask.

Hi Rob887.

With other bugchecks, there is stop 0x124 BSODs, too; which is supposed to be a hardware issue.
BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa800e4c98f8, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : AuthenticAMD

And, if it BSODs during Prime95 with such a low temperature,it can be said that the CPU is failing to take the stress.

Better you replace the CPU.

Install Service pack 1 and all other windows updates. Otherwise the system will remain vulnerable to threats.
