system crashes on prim 95 and BSD

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all I have windows 8 x64

fx 8120

msi ms-7642

I have rma the board 2 and the cpu once

Before I sent every thing off I would get BSD and my system was never very stable and no matter what ram I would use it would all ways fail on memtest

I got new ram
this is what I use
http://micocenter.com/product/347304/XMS3_Series_8GB_DDR3-1333_(PC3-10666)_CL9_Dual_Channel_Desktop_Memory_Kit_(Two_4GB_Memory_Modules)


memtest passes fine

however on prim 95 or any other stress test my system just freezes
My system still ramdoly blue screens

I used my power supply and my gpu in my other system and it works just fine.


I build I different system in the mean time until I get this one figured out it runs great.

I will include a few screen shots please let me know what else I should be doing

I dont overclock I leave all the voltage setting for the memory and CPU on auto
thanks much Im at the point were I may just have to write off the system.

the last one was taken with my smart phone because after that point the system hangs up

You don't really want to be running Prime95 on this board (MSI 890GXM-G65).

This board has a VRM failure prone problem with Phenom II x6 processors.  FX 8-cores consume even more power and the risk is higher yet.

 

While this does not necessarily have to do with why you are crashing every time you run Prime95, it should give you another justification for taking that board out and buying a different one of higher quality.


Did MSI replace the board on RMA or just "repair" something on it? If you get memtest failures there are two general possibilities you can assume: 1. bad RAM, 2. bad RAM slots. This could merely be a case of bad luck with the RAM or with the board replacements.

vrm? That was the old board. That would not pass memtest. This one dose. But I had to sent it in 2 times. However it fells prime 95 now so I traded one problem for another. All the ram is good working ram no problems with memtest I'm still running it just to double check. I read this board support a CPU up to 135 and this CPU. Is 125w right? Your saying I should be looking at different boards? I. Just tried to up the CPU v to 1.458 I stoped there. As far as I know ram is good brand new I used it in my other system amd 6 core and my gpu no probably it passed memtest just fine. I put 3 stick in last night in the msi board and no problem with memtest. I dont have a clue I don't ever mess with the voltage. I figure auto is best. Thanks

I don't know if they replaced the board or not it looks like they just changed it out I was playing. 1080 games fine and running VM ware in the Back ground. Just fine. The I started getting bsod at idle. So I figured I would run a stress test to shed some light on it in here im

Changed cpu with back up system. Both work now with prim 95 guess memtest went fine. d0362880-9d24-bd6b.jpg

sounds like xd_1771 had it about right that cpu will just not work with that msi motherboard I have. Put my amd phemone II 6 1045t in no problems. guess I will run this for a bit . I guess my problem is solved but I would love feedback on how to avoid this. The hole presses is been a good learning experience for me.

So you were using 4 memory DIMMs. I think you just confirmed your problem then. Either one of your memory DIMMs is dead or the unpopulated RAM slot on your mobo is dead.


As for your CPU/Prime95 problem, I'm glad you solved that too.  Perhaps to explain, the 890GXM-G65 uses the somewhat older 890GX chipset.  It's not exactly a designed-for-FX chipset being an AM3 chipset optimized for AM3 processors.

no memtest only failed on first and 2 board both were rma this 3rd system board passes all memtest. but will not run prim95 with fx8120 but the cpu is good becuse I tested it in my backup system
