Some (probably) cpu issue

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well, Lately I've been getting constant pc crashes, mostly blue screens, but some times I get a crach like this: http://img814.imageshack.us/img814/4671/dsc01084vv.jpg

Well, in other words, it was a mess. What I've done to fix it, oh god..
Ok, so here's what I've done. RMA'd and replaced the GPU twice (thought it was the problem)
RMA'd and replaced my RAM
RMA'd and replaced my motherboard
Reinstalled windows

The list may seem small, but it was surely a pain in the ass to go through this, specially on my first ever build..

**** still kept happening, so, today I came to a conclusion that it might be because I've unlocked my CPU and it didn't unlock good, I don't know. So, well, I turned off the "asus core unlocker" on my mobo switch and the bios, and haven't been getting any crashes for around 10 mins (before unlock, I barely had time to load windows before it would crash). If it is my cpu not being able to unlock, this sucks hard... I mean, my performance will drop in a half.. Anyways, why I posted this, is to ask for some cpu test programs maybe, like intel burn though with amd, I don't know, something that would help me find out sooner then usual if its the cpu thats giving me a hard time. (since sometimes it stays for a whole day with no crash). I would also like to know if this is really the cpu, maybe any of you, users of oc.net seen this sort of crashes, maybe experienced some, and would have something to share with me. I'm gonna run gta iv and see if the performance drop is as high as I expect, since gta iv is more demanding on the cpu then the gpu, meh, we'll see. Anyways, any help is appreciated highly, even if it may seem nonsense, please do share it here. Also, forgot to mention, that after RMA'ing the motherboard, chrashes stopped for a day or two, then slowly started to occur more and more. If there's questions about my rig, its all in the sig-rig. Thanks, OCN.

If it was only bluescreens, I would consider drivers, but this weird other crash that I posted a picture of makes me think that its not only bad drivers. Also, I've replaced the memory and mobo, can't be faulty twice in a row.. :/

IntelBurnTest / LinX work on the AMD platform so feel free to crunch away... I use it all the time and it will surely crap out if your setup is a no go. Sometimes the core unlock goes others times maybe not so much... gatta sorta figure theres a reason its locked out of the box... ie. the samples maybe 1-100 tested too poorly to rate the batch any different. OC'n and core unlocking is a crap shoot.

Here are my intelburn test results. Did it on 3 cores. Eerything went fine, so I'm guessing the fourth one is corrupt. I'll do it more this time, maybe for 20 times or so.

Are those values ok, I mean, are they normal and show that the test was completed without a single error? If so then thats awesome. If there's an error, please tell me. I need helf from you, mighty computer wizards!

Now this is crap, I loged into windows when I came back from school, few seconds after log on I get a bluescreen. Well, this time it was no display freakouts simply a bluescreen. I'm not sure what is it now. I changed the unlocked core to the fourth, and disabled the third, runing 20 intel burn test now, going to post the results.

EDIT: Apparently Intel Burn test was fine, maybe I'm just not able to have 4 cores unlocked at once?
