Windows 7: BSOD, new build, random crashes

13 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
BSOD, new build, random crashes

It crashed a couple times running benchmarks, then I updated drivers from the ones on the cd that came with the motherboard to the ones on the website. No more crashes for a day. Now it will just randomly crash and I can't say "every hour" or "every time i run *", I has happened under load, and when I come back to the computer after a while without it doing anything and I see the "windows has recovered..." I can't find any pattern.

Windows 7 pro x64 with all updates installed
i7 4770k
Asus x87-plus
Corsair vengance 8gb x2
EVGA geforce 780 "classified"
Corsair 750watt PSU
LG Bluray burner
Corsair SSD 120gb
Seagate 2tb

I've checked the CPU temp and haven't noticed it go over 45C after playing a a game, it usually sits at about 21 C at desktop.

I very much appreciate your time in helping me track down this problem!

Your problem is BC 124, meaning hardware. The most common hardware is Memory, followed by hard drive. Lets test memory
Download memtest, test each stick for 8 passes. Then test all sticks for 8 passes.
Then take a good stick and test each slot for 8 passes.
