BSOD's maybe caused by RAM and other problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So i took delivery of a GA-Z87X-D3H and 4670k got it all plumed in and having BSOD's they are happening at random times and here is what i have done so fare.....

i've ran Prime95 for 4 hours and no problem
i've ran memtest and have found somthing here -
Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 1.65v 2x2GB and Corsair XMS3 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 1.65v 4x2GB paired sets in correct slots.
while running the 4 sticks of ram i found that is was causing errors but memtest didnt show the normal red errors.
So i did a test of just one stick at a time, no problem. Then i did them as the pairs as they should be, no problem. i alternated the slots and nothing there. It seems that i only get errors when i have all the RAM in at the same time.

Does it matter the i have 2 seperate sets one set being 4GB and one being 8GB? i had this RAM setup in my previous setups, FX4100 with GA-990FX-UD3 and no problems

I'll attaach my .DMP files if anyone has the time to look

Also i have another problem where when restarting the PC when it powers down then goes to restart it will power up for 5 sec then die... and at that point the power button is dead too. i have found take the kettle plug out for more than 10 seconds then put it back in she powers up :S

Anyhelp will be greatly recieved biggrin.gif

I am experiencing the exact same issue with the same board:

GA-Z87X-D3H with BIOS version F5 (latest)

I am running 2x Corsair Vengeance 4GB modules at 9-9-9-24 1.5v and the system is 100% stable in either of the 2 Dual Channel banks. I previously had a triple channel DDR system so I have (3) of these sticks. I ordered a 4th single stick from Amazon to match the other 3 and that's when I started noticing the problems.

I though it was the stick so I have a return setup with Amazon. However I had some 2GB sticks from a previous upgrade so I figured I would try those.

If I add in the 2x Corsair Dominator 2GB sticks at 9-9-9-24 1.5v I will eventually get a random BSOD error referencing various errors with random causes.

I've yet to get an error in any config with memtest or windows memory diag on a reboot.

So, so far the issues ONLY happen when all 4 slots are populated. And I do not have (4) of the same identical sticks to test with, that seems to be the only thing I have not done as of yet.

I do have a ticket open with Gigabyte, no reply yet, but I am going to reference this thread to them as well.

Any other ideas?
