Windows 7: BSOD while gaming

The BIOS that came with the Motherboard, I think it's the first revision.
The timings I use are 7-7-7-24 and the voltage is 1.51.

I put them manualy in.

I didn't find my memory on there list. But they say the following: "Memory modules listed below are for reference only. Due to massive memory models on the market, we can only verify some of them."

It's never really a good idea to go with memory kits that aren't on the board's approved list. Yes, there are so many kits that they can't check them "all", but they do check the major vendors... Geil being one of them.

Is your command rate set at 1T or 2T, if 1, set it to 2T and try and pass memtest again. 21 hours with only 1 error... you might luck out and have it be a bios and/or timing thing.

If 2T gives you an error, then update the bios.

Just played another game but, the game hang again but didn't get a BSOD. I ened it with task manager.

I set the timings to 2T and disabled the performance boost in the BIOS for the CPU. also I set my memory from ungaged to gaged mode.

I took another look at the logs and what I found was that there where a lot of app errors: namely, searchindexer.exe
Code:
Faulting application name: SearchIndexer.exe, version: 7.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bd212
Faulting module name: ESENT.dll, version: 6.1.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bdf7c
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000000000005e1d1
Faulting process id: 0xcd8
Faulting application start time: 0x01cb02725ba0cbdd
Faulting application path: C:\Windows\system32\SearchIndexer.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\ESENT.dll
Report Id: b19238a3-6e68-11df-81c2-6cf049e788d5
It started when I stated playing the game and I see it 3 times in an hour.

I'm starting to fear that it is a bad memory thing. But I'm still going to run the memtest and if that fails again. I'm gonne test a single module at a time. This is going to take a while since I'm 13 hours away from home every day.

I let memtest run again with the ganged mode, overdrive disabled and timing set to 2T. When I woke up this moring memtest has encounterd 1 error and was after 9 hours still in his first pas.

I looked up the memory on the website from GEIL and they say that the memory is best used with intel core I7 and P55 motherboards. Now my brother has a core I7 and a P55 motherboard.

I'm going to try and switch the memory modules and put my modules on his PC and his modules in mine and see if he gets errors to.

When I got back home I got 2 errors (see image) whit the 2T timings and ganged mode.
Now I switched memory with that of my brother. He got OCZ reaper memory and I'm playing a game to test his mem on my board. The game is running now for like about 1 hour and 15 minutes and as far not a problem.
I changed the memory timings back to auto and back to unganged mode. I had to raise the voltage to 1.75 because the memory does his work at that voltage.

As far as now my brother doesn't have encounterd a problem either but it's a little to soon to say that it is solved.

I checked the temps, my CPU is 35°C and my graphics cart is like about 65°C.

I checked my logs again and did not found that app error form searchindexer. I'll have to wait till my brother stresses the memory till I know for sure that there is a problem with it.

Thanks for the help .

Look like it hasn't helped. My brother had a BSOD after 40 minuten while playing splinter cell.

I'm running memtest now but it looks like there is something wrong with this memory.

Ok it was faulty RAM. My brother had the same errors on his PC. I called my hardware vendor and I send the RAM back to them and switched it with RAM that was on the QVL from my motherboard.

I see no app error in the logs with my brother his RAM. I'm running it for a couple of days now without an error.

That one lessen I've learned. Always buy RAM from the QVL!!

You may close this thread, I send the memory back to my hardware vendor and they agreed that it was faulthy memory, wendesday I got new memory and has tested the hell out of my PC. I played splintercell conviction for one hour and a half and he alsways bluescreened at that game within the hour.
Thursday I ran a couple of benchmarks like 3Dmark06 and PC mark05. I ran them four an houre and even OCed my PC to 3,5GHz and ran them again and no crash or bluescreen. Yesterday I played a game and without an error.

Again thanks for the help .
