99belle99 Yea I forgot to mention I only use 3 sticks.

Totally. If they aren't all matching that could contribute to unstable ram as well

99belle99 About that 1.35v for QPI/vtt I run 1.235v at 200bclk and 21 multi for 4.2Ghz, 1600Mhz RAM, 3200MHz Uncore and 1.3v Vcore. And it is stable for the past few years at that. Computer running everyday. A lot of days for many hours.

Zetren Thanks for the help, so far upping the QPI/Vtt has resulted in no more BSODs, so fingers crossed. If another BSOD occurs I'll up the QPI one more time, and failing that run memtest again with your recommendations, however I ran memtest before and it passed, that however was at 1333Mhz.

The 0xD1 code requires an adjustment of qpi/vtt. 1.35 is the safest max for these processors, could also be unstable ram requiring more voltage. The 0x139 code means either bad ram or a recently installed bad driver. The easiest check now would be to run memtest+ on your ram. Keep the blck at 200, the uncore at 3200, but lower your multi to like 13x, then run a full pass of memtest (may take a few hours) if there are faults in your ram they will show up there. If it passes you know your ram can handle 1600 mhz and it's another part of the system causing bsod

I settled on a 200 blck with a 21 multi, and it's a 24/7 stable machine ram running 1600 MHz. If I get around to it I'll post my settings. I have an Asus p6x58d premium board

First I will attempt to up my QPI/vtt voltage, failing that I will lower my block to 160, failing that i will restore default clocks and up the memory multi to see if 1600MHz @ 1.5v is possible. It should be, after all its what the RAM is rated at

Zetren I have 6 sticks of 4gb, they are all the same Hynix, uncore is set to 3200Hz (for now, until I repaste my northbridge) 200 block, 22x multi (4.4ghz).

How many sticks of ram? Are they all the same? Try upping the uncore to 3200 MHz or 1 step above that. Qpi/dram/vtt may have to be bumped up to 1.3 v.

Sometimes it's ram sticks, sometimes it's the motherboard. It's also possible you have a blck hole at 200 and things just won't be stable. You could also try a 160 blck with a 10x memory multi to get 1600 as well
