new build, constant BSODs, please help - Page 3

whats the best way to check the drive integrity? and come to think of it, one of the BSODs was during an AS SSD test...

As for ruling out parts, the only new ones are the mobo, RAM, and CPU. but like I said, i reformatted the SSD, so I guess it could be that, too. I feel like I would have had some kind of error pop up while running memtest and prime95 if it were a RAM issue. I'm starting to think mobo, but I guess SSD is now on the table as well

Ugh... I know what you're going through, diagnosing the problem is a huge task in and of itself.

I would honestly go to the barebones and start again. Also, when you say you "wiped" the SSD before installing the OS, I hope you mean you "secure erased" them and not just "formatted" them, right? Do NOT "format" an SSD like a regular HDD.

Your issues seem to point to some sort of hardware problem. This is because you're reporting frequent BSODs soon after a new build. It would also be a good idea to run a full system scan and MalwareBytes to make sure you eliminate any software malware/virus. Diagnosing computer problems is best done through a process of elimination. Try a new mobo and see if things work. Try 'chkdsk /r' a few times and see if that works (checks your main OS hard-drive/ssd). Also do 'sfc /scannow' and that checks for integrity violations

Good luck.

Maybe its time to start ruling things out? Id start the PC with just one ram stick and without the 6950 running off the onboard GPU and test what happens then. If that doesnt help try the other stick or ram. At the very least youll know that its not the 6950.

I've tried without the 6950 for a while, still had one. I'll run one stick at a time, tho. I was also considering installing Windows onto one of my old HDDs and giving that a shot, might rule out the SSD. Thanks for stickin with me guys, I appreciate all the help

for ssds you can try ssdlife or crystal disk mark to see drive health. for mechanical hard drives try HDTune. Seatools is great for Seagate drives and caldera dr dos is for western digital drives....but I always try hdtune whenever I suspect a hard drive issue. its recommended to do the cleaning of ssds on dos command with the clean command. its in sean's win 7 ssd guide. if you see 100% drive health on the ssd and no bad sectors on your hd then I would for sure say its gotta be the mainboard as that is the only part of the pc not ruled out...especially if the 6950 was working perfectly before and wasn't beaten to death.

well it's been a very busy week for me, so I haven't had much time to troubleshoot further. But as of this morning, I've got a new symptom. I got 5 BSODs within about 30 min while browsing online, and started getting some popups from the ASUS software. I installed all the monitoring stuff, and got a few warnings like "+5v 0.163V" and "Motherboard temp -63C". The voltage thing first made me think PSU, but after the second warning, and being fairly sure that it wasn't -63C in my case, I'm really starting to be convinced it's my mobo. I might try to do an RMA through Amazon (I know their return service is pretty painless). Thanks again for all the help yall have given, and I'll post back when I have some more info.
