New Phenom II x4 970/Blue Screen

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
just installed new phenom ii x4 970 on my 790xt-g45 and i get blue screens. i need help figuring out the error. can someone help me out? all i know is that the error is within northbridge. All my pc specs r in the picture.

the upgrade was from a Athlon 64 x2 5200+. so im working with new mem settings. im guessing its one of those settings

Edit: temp seems to be fine right before blue screen.

Your timings at 5-7-7 are extremely poor for DDR2-1066. Is it rated that or can you do better? Assuming these settings are wrong, it may be causing your problem.

i havent touched the voltage at all and i just set my ram to 800mhz and seems like stress test is running fine. saw on the cpu-z SPD tab the Max Bandwidth for my slot #1/2 is set for 800mhz. my ram is a 1066mhz model. was my ram limiting my 1066mhz and making the blue screen?

where would i be able to find a good timing :S?

I see. One other thing I noticed is you are running on a 790XT-G45; you should not be overclocking on that board whatsoever, you are running an overclocked 125W+ processor on an unheatsinked 4+1 power phase on an MSI board and I wouldn't be surprised if the next time you post here you're crying because your board caught fire and took out a lot of your parts with it. The fact that you have a cooler that makes air completely skip the mosfets makes it even worse. I wouldn't be surprised either if this was the cause of your blue screens.

You should return to stock or even underclock/undervolt or better yet, get a different motherboard. Trust me, what you are doing is extremely dangerous. Even higher-tier heatsinked 4+1 power phase MSI boards have caught fire on 125W processors before.
