brand new pc crash error

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
hey guys
just built a com for my bro, done this many many times in the past, this is the only time ive had a problem.
ill keep it simple.
here are the specs
cpu - amd fx 6100 6 core
mb - asus m5a97 evo
vga - sapphire 6970
ram - corsair 8gb vengeance ddr3 2x4
psu - thermaltake tr2 700w
hdd - ocz vertex 3 60gb (only hd plugged in atm as boot drive)
before you ask, yes ive tried another hdd, both 32 and 64 bit version of win 7.

ok so heres how it is, i install all the drivers, newest ones up to date, he starts playing skyrim, crysis, or even minecraft lol and it eaither completely freezes (most of the time) about 5-10 mins in and only twice we have seen the blue screen when it crashed, yep, the bsod.
im on the comp atm, running fine, it seems to be only when under load.
so we ran prime95, which also froze completely after load had be applied to the comp and we found this error
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
i cant find the stress file to read is so im completely stumped.

i have only 1 theory, the PSU is faulty. i tried to take a screen shot of the BSOD but was too late.
no i havnt tried another PSU, dont think i have another 500+ watt lying around to test.

any advice guys, everything here is brand new.

thanks

Have you overclocked the PC?

I had that error when i OC, in my case, i had to increase the voltage or decrease the multiplier for it to become stable. If you haven't OC then i'm not sure. Is the CPU brand new?

no, as I said, brand new. if that is the case then it is the PSU.

You Vcore or DRAM voltage might be too low, your RAM timings might be too tight or the multiplier too high, or your BCLK may be too high.

Check your BIOS settings and compare them to the documentation for your RAM. If they are on AUTO, try setting all that stuff manually.

if you want to check the details of your bluescreen download this http://www.resplendence.com/downloads
the program is called whocrashed and it lets you analyze bsod dumps to narrow down what is causing the problem. once you find that out post the details.
another idea as well is run on one stick of ram. if it fails try the other one. also your temps, what are they at idle?

ok so far I am thinking its faulty ram. irql less than equal is commonly related to faulty ram. it would really help if you downloaded whocrashed and analzed your bluescreen dumps. in the meantime though, try running the system with each stick of ram by itself. also check what timings and voltages your ram was meant to run at and verify in the bios that they match those settings.

1.25v VCORE might not be enough. I'd bump it up to 1.35v and hope for the best.
