Ram is at all stock settings, running at 1.5v, which is what OCZ recommends, but have been thinking of pushing it up a little to maybe 1.55-1.6v just to see if that helps.
Timings are right where they should be: 6-6-6-18-20.

Is

your set of RAM?

Upping the voltage may help just don't go too high. Up to 1.65 is safe of course but I don't know what the max safe voltage is.

Try 1.60 volts.Are you setting it in the BIOS or using a program like AMD overdrive?

Hey guys, I'm new here on the forums, and I'd would like some help with some issues that have been occurring with my new build.

I'm running a PhenomII x2 555BE on a Biostar A780L3L mobo, I currently have it clocked at 3.6GHz.

Now, the issue I am having is, regardless of if cores are unlocked, or if OC'ed, I get random crashes and or BSOD's. Even when at stock speed, as an x2, Prime95 stops before it even seems like it started. Says there was a rounding error, and that's it. I've run other stress testers and can run them for hours clocked at 4GHz, and the CPU temp never goes above 45 degrees. I'm using SpeedFan/Hardware Monitor Pro to record temps, and they both say my main board runs at over 120 degrees.....under no load, but everything else is far under anything that I would see as excessive.

I can run the Phenom at 4GHz and have absolutely no problems, that is, until I try to fullscreen some movie, or pretty much do anything graphics intensive.

I'm running the onboard graphics for the mobo, which is a Radeon HD3000(I'm poor, put this whole system together for $300) and I feel like it should be more than up to the task to watch a movie, especially when it's not HD content.

The only thing that I can really think of is that the GPU is over heating, causing the crash/reboot, but I'm not 100% on that, as Prime95 wont really run at all when trying to stress test the CPU(as x2)

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, as this is gunna be my work computer for graphic design/web development, and don't want it to randomly crash on me in the middle of working on a clients site, and lose everything.

If you need anymore information to help me figure this issue out, please feel free to ask them.
Like everyone else is saying, it is most likely the memory. On my old motherboard I had similar issues running my RAM, but once I switched over to a new mobo everything just "worked". I just lowered the speeds of my ram and I got it to work on my old mobo. It actually wouldn't work at the 1333 speed and it was 1600 RAM

So try underclocking your RAM, and keep the volts stock.

Yeah, actually just realized my BIOS doesnt allow me to change the mem voltage, it'll let me change just about every other voltage, but not for the memory. I might see if Overdrive will let me adjust the voltages, as I'm really starting to think that's the issue.

And yes, KillingTheSilence, that is the RAM I have.

Also, I'm not messing with OCing the RAM, 800MHz fits the FSB perfectly, and the VERY marginal increase in performance (if any) from OCing the ram isn't worth my time, although I may try and tighten up timings.

Ok, so on startup, the built in monitor on the mobo reads ram voltages of around 1.56v, and Overdrive gives me a reading or 1.8v. Not really sure whats up with that.

OverCurrent Protection (OCP)
You're using incapable 2+1 VRMs so it must be OCP kicking in (which I'm not even sure would be present on Biostar boards)
Board max TDP is 95W, x2 stock is 80W, x2 unlocked to x4 is beyond at 125-140W

You shouldn't be OC-ing at all on this board

Yep, probably the MOSFETs

Check your RAM timings, speed, and voltages and make sure that they are set at whatever OCZ recommends. My guess is your RAM needs to run at 1.65V but your mobo set it automatically at 1.5

If everything is how OCZ says it should be, then run memtest like the other guys said.
x2 OCZ RAM is GARBAGE! Stupid RAM fried my mobo

LUCKILY the mobo and RAM were under warranty at the local shop so I swapped in Kingston HyperX.

In fact the local shop and I RMA'd their ram back to them shredded into a million pieces a bit of vindication for their terrible product.

*EDIT* I agree with xd_1771 you should not be overclocking with this board. You paid $300 for a system you expected to perform like its $600 counterpart. IMO you get what you paid for.

Put EVERYTHING back to stock and see if that helps, ensure the RAM timings/voltages are as specified in the BIOS, ensure all the clocks are set to optimized settings, Clear the CMOS, boot it up and run checkdisks. If it still BSOD's then you're probably hooped, sounds like OCZ has another happy customer victim.

Luckily, they stopped making RAM.
