Mango,

What was the reason that you went Only withe Koolance VRM Block, instead of using all three Blocks from Koolance? Do you have any installed and Running pics of your setup?

I NEED HELP!!! Computer is very unstable and crashes ever hour to 1 once a day. It would be a random BSOD. All of my stuff is brand new and I can't keep it running. I don't care about over clocking it right now... I just need to set it up to be stable. I am somewhat of a noob when it comes to voltage setups and I have been working a bit with AOD.

My current setup:

MSI 790FX-GD70 (BIOS 1.90)
OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK 2 x 2GB (RAM)
hec XPOWER780 780W
AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE
Thermaltake R1 CPU Fan
POWERCOLOR PCS AX5750 1GBD5-PDHG Radeon HD 5750
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB
DVD Optical Drive
Antec Three Hundred with all fan spots filled 12mm fans
Windows 7 Pro 64-bit

A detailed walk through on how to set up the BIOS on this Motherboard would be fantastic!
P.S. I was successfully able to unlock the 4th core and it's instability is the same with the 3 cores enabled vs the 4th core enabled.

Initially, cash. With shipping everything was coming up to near 1000, and that's nearly 7000 in my currency. So I initially went with the Alphacool chipset block and the Koolance VRM block. But, the Alphacool did not work so well on the SB and was blocking the second 4870X2 (which I may have damaged in any case and had to take it out eventually) so I went for the Koolance CHC-125 on the SB. The Alphacool on the NB fit just fine so I left it for now. Eventually I may switch it for another Koolance, but with the two hosed XSPC Dual Bay Dual Pump resevoirs I'm all tapped out for cash.

Right now I've got the third XSPC res installed (XSPC support shipped out a replacement really quick) and crossing my fingers it doesn't fall apart on me.

Once I'm satisifed that everything is okay for a spell I'll post pictures...not very "blingy" though, I'm afraid.

For now, this is what the innards looked like before I pulled the second 4870X2 (which I hope I haven't hosed).


I went with all black...cause I like black ...so you may only just make out the blocks (especially under all the tubing). I guess that's one of the reasons I went with the Alphacools as well. I'm not that into shiny.

Jedi, I think we'll need a bit more info than what you've given. For instance, if you're getting BSODs, what exactly are the errors being reported?

BSODs on new gear are usually the result of driver issues and shouldn't occur if everything was installed correctly. Rarely, you may have been cursed with bad gear...rarely.

Might I suggest setting all your BIOS settings to default (and AUTO where relevant), turning off the fourth core, and isolating the BSOD error? Reduce the number of variables you're dealing with in order to zero in on the culprit.

My initial feeling is a bad driver...anyone?

Thank you for the quick response... I have updated the drivers to the very latest and verified with Driver Genius Pro. The BIOS settings at default are very unstable and I'm lucky if the computer will run for 15 min. In order for the computer to run for an hour I had to increase the NB voltage a tiny bit. I have turned off the forth core, and here is a print out of the latest (of many) Critical BSOD.

Did you install any drivers for the mobo on Windows 7?? The reason I ask is because you dont need to install any drivers as W7 already finds them for you... I had the same exact problem you are having 3 days ago... It was my sound driver that i installed myself that kept giving me BSOD. So if you installed any drivers for your mobo on W7 Delete them all and reboot and see if you crash... Report back asap <3. P.S. AS pointed out to me by someone on these very forums <3... W7 has a built in Memory Diagnostic tool. You should run that as well, to make sure your ram is good and we can overlook that as being a possible culprit. Click start and in the search box start typing Memory and you'll see Windows Memory Diagnostic appear.

Ran a successful stress test using the AMD OverDrive Utility for 1hr... First time it has completed without errors. Dropped the Memory Clock down to 533 MHz It seems quite stable right now. Must be something to do with the Memory Management. I will report back if it BSOD again. Sucks that I have purchased this nice RAM and have to run it at super low speeds to keep the system stable.

Do you run the RAM at the rated timings and voltages? There should be a sticker on your RAM that tells you what it normally runs at. At mobo default, my RAM runs at 667mhz(1333) with 9-9-9-27-36-1T timings with 1.5V, but it is rated to run 800mhz(1600) with 7-7-7-20-20-27-1T timings with 1.9V. As you can see, my default values are very SLOW and use very little voltage, but it has to be set on higher voltages to be stable on the rated settings (1.85-1.95V for me). This might be the source of your problems, so it's worth a try by taking one RAM stick out and write down the values you see from the sticker. Just make sure you turn your PSU off before you attempt to do anything physical with your mobo.

Ya the rated timings on my RAM are 8-8-8-24 I have been putting the 2 sticks into T2 mode because of the instability issues and the voltage that the motherboard sets is 1.6 and I know that specs say 1.65. The only problem with running one stick at a time is that it is dual channel, so it needs both sticks in to even turn on. I tried moving the sticks to slots 3 and 4 on the Motherboard... doesn't seem to help. This is a long shot, but do you think its a PS problem? I have Spectrum turned on for power spikes, and I do live the US where power is stable, but I am getting sick of this crashing and its soooo hard to trouble shoot when the BSOD error log is so general. Perhaps it could be the BIOS version too?? 1.90 is what I have, anyone have a better BIOS version that is stable? Here is a link to my RAM.
