Random BSOD's under light load.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey boys,
I recently posted a thread titled "worker stopped, im stumped". I had to deal with an instability issue (of course) where prime blendtest workers would fail within seconds. I only got the problem upon installing my 2nd 4G stick of ram, which naturally led me to suspect the ram was DOA. Turns out the TRFC1 from dimm3 (it was in dual channel) was set to 90ns along with dimm2 and 4. Dimm1 however was somehow preset to 160ns, so I matched dimm3 to that timing and the worker problem was solved.

However, along with that problem came a BSOD issue. I would get BSOD's in the most unlikely situations. I'd be watching youtube videos, downloading a file and running skype, and after five or so hours BAM, blue blood.

On the previous thread i mentioned I was advised on upping the voltages to my CPU NB, NB and RAM. However, I'm oblivious as the whether this is necessarily the case, but if so, I understand it's a process of elimination to figure which component in turn requires the extra juice. It seems prime95 blend isn't triggering or "finding" the BSOD if you will, so I feel like I need a better tool to test with. Then I simply up the voltage by 0.025v increments, working on one component at a time and hopefully I'll solve it? Is that it? What's the maximum amount of extra volts for the components? I know my ram is rated at 1.5, and I am unsure if I should go over that. What about the Nb and CPUnb??

In short, is it a voltage issue, or still a timing issue? Any tool better than the blend test?
Please advise!!!!

What speeds are your CPU and RAM at?

And have you updated your motherboard BIOS and latest drivers throughout?

Ive been suffering the same, though I fixed my timings since for some reason it defaults back to 1066 :/ it happens less, but it still happens :O!

If your overclock can do the blend test then i think you could rule out ram since it uses lots of ram.maybe the small FFTs will stress your cpu more, if it errors or blue screens then its more likely to be cpu. though im not sure how you could see if its a northbridge issue.

1333 CL9 sticks + 1055T = will hold back your overclock and/or cause problems
On the other hand, this is a rather old thread...
