yup. thermaltake 550watt psu. tweaked dram settings to 2.1v @ 1066mhz...if i get another blue screen, ill take it down to 800mhz, and if that doesn't work i'll have to replace the ram entirely...

and if THAT doesn't work, then honestly it's just going to be time for a new board

taking another look, it's only a 70% effeciency; but i still don't think it should be a problem...

It could be, but personally I think the fault lies somewhere in your CPU/RAM/Motherboard.

I run a similar (Q6600, GTS250, 4gig Corsair RAM) system on a Corsair 80+ 750W - but that is a bit of overkill.

I've made another discovery...

I've always ran the ASUS EPU-6 Engine that came with my P5Q PRO mobo... I eventually updated to a newer version than what came with it. But the auto mode I had it running on, and the program in general is actually notorious for causing problems and blue screens with ASUS boards, go figure.

I always liked the software because the different settings allowed you to tweak CPU clockspeed/fanspeed/etc with a simple GUI, and was cool to do depending on hard I was pushing the comp....
but I now suspect that this has been the source of my problems from the very beginning.

I've uninstalled it and haven't had a problem yet; from what I've been reading I'd recommend for anyone who has EPU-6 and gets BSODs to uninstall it asap..I'll bump this if anything comes up...

The above driver (mentioned in my 1st post) is the ASUS EPU-6 Engine driver. I always recommend an update first, but thinking about it now this is not the first time I have seen it at fault. I will recommend immediate removal in future.

Glad to hear that your BSODs seem to have stopped.

Hello I was suffering the BSOD HELLL since I built my lil PC. Memory_Management was the common failure. When I looked at the dump log discovered ntoskrnl.exe failure or similar. I searched and searched over days .. only by chance a few days ago stumbled upoun your page. After reading through the remarks re Bios "auto mode" etc I decided to have a fiddle with it. Instead of the bios handling the speeding up or down of RAM , CPU speeds etc , I went in and manually set it to a slower speed(800Mhz) than subsequently the standard default for the RAM (1066). I must say, fingers CROSSED. So far NO BSOD ... Yay. Apart from ASUS Motherboards, I suspect a lot of the bios software which promises to speed up and squeeze that extra millicycle from your CPU or RAM might actually be counterproductive. I have also run memtest86+ and it certainly shows one address error in a RAM stick. So I will be RMA'ing the set back to crucial. But I must stress , despite this error showing up on the test, overall now, my PC certainly is ROCK SOLID stable compared to the problems I was getting prior to tweaking BIOS setting....... THANKS PS - I thanks - I must add .. I have the gigabyte bios and mb .. so I think this may be a generic fault with all speeding up bios softwares .. Take care .. Regards to all

Glad to hear you have it solved.

Make sure you also do not install/use the EPU-6 Engine otherwise you will be coming back here for more help.
