random BSOD even with computer idle; win 7

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I get intermittent BSOD's even with the computer idle. I have run memtest for three iterations with no errors reported. (7 1/2 hours)

I have some BIOS set up questions:

system is:
mobo is gigabyte m5 sniper
RAM is g.skill ripjaws x series 16GB (4x4GB) ddr3 1600
power supply thermaltake 850w (plugged into a UPS)
i5 4670 processor

concerning the BIOS
what should the system memory multiplier be set at? I have it at 16.00
memory freq is 1600 MHz
the CPU Vcore 1.048v set to normal
CPU Vcore offset 0v set to auto
DRAM voltage 1.5v set to normal.

the CPU status says the core frequency is 3600.0 MHz, the chip is set for 3.4 GHz

thanks,
bob

BSOD generally happen because one of two things is happening:

* Hardware fault (either bad hardware, incorrectly set hardware, or similar problem)
*Driver fault (bad driver, bad memory reference via driver - RAM / VRAM, or other driver-hardware related issues)

Determining which of the two starts with updating fully your current driver sets:

*Video
*System drivers

Be sure they're up to date. Also when you run memtest, be sure to do it with each stick of RAM individually to negate the chance of missing certain errors.
