MSI Idle BSODs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just had another idle reboot on my MSI P67a-GD55 and lost part of an assignment. I thought I'd gotten it under control by turning on power save features when idle, but no luck. At least I have two days left to return it. This build has been a disaster...

Between the Gigabyte UD4 and the Asus P8P67 Deluxe, whats the most reliable board...I realize the Asus has more features (and is more money), I'm more interested in which will cause the least problems.

If I can get a refund, I might try the ASRock Extreme4, unfortunately I had to cut up my box for the stupid rebate, so I have a feeling getting a refund will be hard.

I've upped my voltage a bit...I guess I'll leave it running the next couple days and see if I get any more idle BSODs. Wish there was some way to reproduce them. I really like this board, otherwise...but I'm afraid of getting stuck with something that isn't completely stable and loosing work (or money when I have to replace it).

If your reboots and/or BSOD's are random and not easily or reliably reproducible, I would look towards one or more of your RAM sticks being faulty. I suggest downloading a copy of the Ultimate Boot CD and running Memtest off of it:

Try to test one set of RAM at a time to see which may be the culprit. Usually, if you have faulty RAM, you would know within the first few minutes when running Memtest as it will generate errors.

Also, just to throw this out there, depending on which set of Patriot RAM you have, you may need to check your voltages in your BIOS settings. Sandy Bridge CPU's are more sensitive to RAM that requires a stock voltage higher than 1.5V. If it isn't at that level already, set it to 1.5V. You may or may not need to downclock your RAM, but that could also be your answer to better stability.

Good luck with everything!

4 sticks of RAM? Increase your VCCIO voltage a little bit, 1.20v should cover you. Run memtest86+ and report back. No need to test sticks individually unless you fail memtest86+ with all of the sticks in.
