P8P67 EVO BSOD/Freeze

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be quick because I don't know when I will get another BSOD.

I setup a new computer with an Asus P8P67 EVO motherboard and a 2600K sandy bridge CPU and have been getting BSODS randomly. I've also noticed random lag spikes that freeze certain programs or my entire computer for 1-2 minutes.

As far as I can tell it's either a hardware issue or a voltage issue. I thought it may be something with the "auto overclock" feature my motherboard comes with, so I cleared my CMOS and went into bios and loaded the optimal settings. I enabled "High performance" for power settings in the control panel. In the "ASUS AI Suite II" I believe my other hooked up drives are turned off whenever they aren't in use.

I "IntelBurnTestV2" last night and used up my entire allocation of ram w/o a BSOD so I'm going to rull that out. My CPU/Motherboard/SSD are new. I feel it may have something to do with my HD's, video cards or case. HDS: randomly whenever I do decide to copy files from my backup hard drive to my new one, I occasionally get a BSOD. Also, the Marvell SATA3 ports were giving me a BSOD w/ mv91xx.sys so I quit using them and uninstalled the application the cd came with (not sure about the drivers). I also switched the SSD port to my intel SATA3 ports although I've read not to use them). Video Card: I was getting a BSOD at the start with them in SLI and not having them hooked up. Case: I used some brass standoffs to keep my hard drive away from my case, but I didn't use a rubber stopper or paper insulator in between.

Computer Specs:
Intel 2600k
Asus P8P67 evo rev 3
16 G SKill DDR3
2x 460 SLI
C300 256 GB SSD

I will attach an image of my BSOD once I get my phone's drivers installed.

Yes, bsod codes would be helpful. And have you tried reseating your ram/video card? Either of these things could be causing problems, especially if you don't mount the ram right. Remember to push down evenly on both sides of the sticks and don't put too much pressure.

Your problem is too vague right now, you need to narrow it down, ergo removing all variables. Have you tried booting with just one video card and one stick of ram?

By the way, welcome to ocn.

Thanks for the welcome

I've removed 2 sets of ram at a time, didn't seem to change anything, the same with running it with one video card. But, I think this was when I had bsods from the sata 3 driver. I've completely remove and reinstalled all my parts a couple times now, same with the video card. In addition to the screws, I've supported it with bag ties.

Also, attached in the first post in the BSOD error. It doesn't seem to want to dump; perhaps it is a HD/SSD issue?

0x00000124 is a hardware failure code. Something isn't right, and I am personally placing my bet that it's your RAM.

It's possible you have a dead stick of ram, or two, or three. We don't know yet. It's also possible they're all completely functional but your system doesn't like those timings and voltages and you may need to bump a little more DRAM voltage.

I know it's a pain, but the best and easiest way to diagnose this is to run Memtest. Run Memtest with all sticks in. If it fails, run it with two sticks in. If it fails, run it with one stick at a time until you find the source of failure. If each stick fails, that means you might just need a little more DRAM voltage.

As far as how long you want to run Memtest, I'd say anywhere from 8-12 hours. If the RAM ends up being fine, then we have other things to worry about.

If I had any bad sticks of ram I think it would have crashed with the stress test I did yesterday (all the ram was utilized except maybe 400 megs).

I guess I will run the Memtest while I sleep, but I honestly doubt it is the problem. I've had bad ram before and whenever I did something that used the bad segments, it crashed. Here the crashes are random, and seem to me to be more around my hds.

This is straight from the sandy bridge overclocking guide here on ocn:

Quote:
0x124 = add/remove vcore or QPI/VTT voltage (usually Vcore, once it was QPI/VTT)
Most likely, I would guess it is the qpi/vtt voltage, since you have a large amount of ram in your system. Try increasing that voltage and report back on your findings.

That's possible as well! Forgot about that.

Is that necessary on a system without any oc'ing? Would seem kind of stupid to have to do that because I have 16 gigs on my system.

I also pretty sure my ram is underclocked, since they are supposed to be @ 1600, while my system at default has them at 1333; All voltages/speeds are auto - controlled by the system.

Since you haven't overclocked I don't think it's necessary though as long as everything is stock. As for your RAM statement, to fix that set DRAM Frequency from AUTO to 1600 and DRAM voltage to whatever your advertised voltage is for stock speeds. For example, 1.50v is mine. That's what you'd set it to "1.50".

When you fill up all the memory slots, you put an additional load on the memory controller. That controller is built into the Sandy Bridge CPU. A 0x124 error is typically caused by a low voltage error, and is very possibly related to either the CPU vCore or the memory/controller/system agent (VTT/VCCIO/VCCSA)[too many different names] even possibly the DRAM voltage.

Since you have not OC'd the CPU, concentrate on the DRAM/Memcontroller voltages.
