BSOD on new build.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello guys, my name is Caleb and I am having a headache with trying to figure this out, and it's starting to annoy me having to restart the computer multiple times daily.

Specs are:

Manufacturer:Custom Build

Processor:AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (6 CPUs), OC ~4.0GHz / H60 Water-Cooler / NB ~3000MHz

Memory:8192MB RAM DDR3 G.Skill Sniper Gaming Series (1333MHz)

Hard Drive:640GB WD Black 6Gb/s + 1TB WD Black 3Gb/s + 640GB WD Blue 3Gb/s + 320GB WD Blue 3Gb/s

Video Card:NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 OC ~860MHz Core ~2222MHz Memory / Reflashed BIOS

Sound Card:ASUS Xonar DG Audio Device 5.1 Channel

Speakers/Headphones:Razer Carcharias / Dell Stereo Speakers w.Subwoofer

Keyboard:Razer Lycosa

Mouse:Razer Naga

Operating System:Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_rtm.101119-1850)

Motherboard:ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Computer Case:Sentey Black Box Series BX2-4291 Mid Tower Computer Case w/ HD Audio & Card Reader, SECC 0.7mm, 2x USB, 6x 120mm Fans (5x w/LED), ATX-MATX-ITX

Power Supply: 600W Corsair Gaming Power Supply w/LED


My computer frequently locks up every 5-60 minutes I'd say and when it locks up it generally resets the internet connection. When in-game sometimes I will lock up right after entering text into the chat (GTA:SA) but that doesn't happen every time so maybe coincidence?

Anyways here are the mini-dump files information laid out with BlueScreenView.

I also get the BSOD when the PC is at idle (overnight waking up to a BSOD)

I have already gotten 4 lock ups while writing this for about 5-10 seconds each time and for 2 of those lock ups the internet has dropped. (By lock up I mean nothing responds, not even cursor.)

This is how HWMonitor looks when idle.

This is how HWMonitor looks while on load. (Prime95 and FurMark)
http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/8682/hwmonitorload.png (As you can see the CPU does get up to 59C but that's only when I first start Prime95 then it goes down to 55C and maintains it.)

On another note when ever I start up my PC I always have to go into the nVidia control panel and re-adjust my brightness settings back up to +72% otherwise my computer looks super dark and very over-contrasted, is there a reason it looks like this without the +72% brightness increase and how come I have to re-apply the settings to +72% even though I click save every time, and sometimes it auto-applies it during startup and sometimes it doesn't.

Also sometimes when I lock up first the keyboard and programs (along with sound) will stop responding then shortly (2-5 seconds later) the mouse locks up followed by it un-freezing only moments later.


Here are a couple of EVEREST Ultimate screenshots.

Dude, just load default bios and when you start OCing you wanna test it with Prime95 for stability, also i would not oc that much on that board kuz the VRM arent sinked!

Needs more power. 0x0000124 = vcore or vterm.

I did do that and ran 24 hour Prime95 tests on the final 4.0GHz, I ran 3-6 hour Prime95's on every step up though.

Are you sure on this? In BIOS I have the Core voltage set at 1.59 (I go by what CPU-Z says @1.548 idle and ~1.480 load.

My NB voltage is at 1.35 @3GHz in BIOS, need I go higher?

I did use Prime95 for stability and it was stable for the full 24+ hours I ran it.

Also could you fill me in on the VRM sinked and unsinked issues and what it can complicate? I have no knowledge on that.


ALSO Note: check my original post I posted more screen shots which you guys may find useful.

I think the OC is not stable 100%.
I once ran prime for like 12 hours... and then folded for another hours and it was "stable". Then I lanched bad company 2 and the second It fully loaded it crashed.

I think this is OCing problem.

I boosted my CPU/NB voltage a little to see if it helped and still BSOD and stuff, it kinda blows. I know everything has enough power, but I am wayyy too lazy to run a memory test unless I can do it from windows which I guess isn't possible? So eh. This thing is starting to get to me, it happens frequently with Photoshop, not really when gaming, maybe once or twice but it could be coincidence. It's reallllly annoying I hope someone can help me.


EDIT: Ran another Prime test and I bsod within the first minute so I lowered my CPU to 3.9 GHz instead and am Prime95'ing right now, I don't know if that was a coincidence or if it was just too high of a clock for this processor (which kinda pisses me off seeing as pretty much everyone can get at least 4.1+ on this thing with coolers like mine.) Also I just locked up for a second like I always do, so that problem isn't fixed. Kinda annoying as HELL.

Disable the overclock and test the ram properly with Memtest.Each stick by it s own.
One full Memtest pass at start ,25 passes on test 5 ,another 25 for test 7 ,then close with another full pass.It should show something.
