I know this is about processors, but I'm crashing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all, here's my current setup

i7 960 @ 3.2ghz
Asus P6T mobo
12gb of Corsair Vengeance - 9 9 9 24 @ 1.5v
64gb Kingston SSD
500gb WD Sata dr
PowerColor ATI Radeon 6950 @ 6970 shaders

So I've been getting these blue screens since I switched to an i7. I used to have in some G.SKILL ram mixed with the Corsair, but I thought maybe because the ram's latency #s were so much different, that it was causing crashes, as well as the voltages were different. Swapped that out, no luck, still crashing. Seems I crash once every 2 - 3 days.

I'm trying to figure out what could be causing it, if it's my mobo, or maybe some software. Is there anything file I can check for information regarding the crash? Or a file I can upload here for someone to read and let me know what it says?

Thanks for any help!

Did you reformat you hard drive? Make sure you have done a clean OS install. If you havnt done this it's the place to start. You can also run memtest to check the ram.

The OS was freshly installed on the SSD drive. And has been re-installed since then as well.

Nice DSM btw, AWD?

In that case run the CPU stock if you have overclocked and run memtest to test the ram.

Thanks, sadly no it's a GST front wheel drive.

Have you been just crashing or have you gotten BSOD codes? If you've gotten BSOD codes then look at this list.

Btw its nice to see I'm not the only one in the world with a 960 wink.gif

I get a BSOD, but is there a way for me to check a crash file to see what code was last?

Yeah I would run memtest, memory has a tendacy to just crash when an error is detected. Run the test and if you crash durring it then you got the problem, but then you need to start pulling sticks until you pass and then set the last stick aside and place all the rest back in and retest to make sure you don't have multiple bad sticks.
