Greetings.

I'm a bit in over my head at this point in time. I recently made the move to go ahead and build a new system; however I have been having numerous problems with it sense I got it working. Below are the system specifications.
Quote:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T @2.8Ghz (6 Cores)
Cooling: Corsair CWCH50 Liquid Cooling Kit
Memory: 4GB Corsair XMS3 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM @1333mhz
Hard Drive 1: 150GB Western Digital Raptor SATA 2 10000 RPM (16MB Cache)
Hard Drive 2: 1TB Western Digital SATA 2 7200rpm (32MB Cache)
Video Card: 1280MB EVGA Nvidia GTX 470
Monitor: 32inch Dynex HDTV
Speakers/Headphones: Logitech G35 (7.1 Surround Sound Headset)
Keyboard: Logitech G110
Mouse: Logitech G9x
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (64bit)
Motherboard: ASUS M4A79T (Socket AM3)
Power Source: OCZ 700w Modular
Computer Case: Cooler Master Storm Scout
So here is my problem: My computer is crashing at random but never while I'm in game, usually at start up or the first 10min of the system booting.

I have enough knowledge to put the computer together and do some trouble shooting. In the first week I had diagnosed that both the RAM and Hard Drive that came in the build were bad. I used memorytest86 to verify that the ram was bad and as for the hard drive not only did it sound like it was bad I used HD tune to verify that claim of it being bad as well. It agreed with me. Now putting 2 and 2 together I looked up the the memory dump files and researched the bug check strings to see if it matched the errors I was getting; and they did. Thought I found my problems finally.

I'm in the process of RMA'ing the memory and hard drive. But as for now I'm using a backup hard drive which is a WD 640GB and new pairs of RAM which I ordered. The hard drive for a fact I know works and has no problems. As for the RAM it passed though several loops of the memorytest86 with out error.

So this time everything is checking out on the tests.... but the blues screens continue. Its been about once a day it would blue screen. After the crash everything would run perfectly. I've been gaming pretty heavily on the system as recently as yesterday. Today however it was to the point of where I could barley boot. I tired a few different things to remedy but nothing seemed to work. I ended up taking out one of the RAM modules and that seemed to stop most of my problems but there is still a lot of system instability. Below I have posted system event logs and minidump files from 01/13/11 to 01/17/11.

I have looked up the "Kernel Power event 41 task 63 and have gotten no straight forward answer on what my head ache is. The miniump files point to both the hard drive and RAM. How ever the hard drive is from an existing system and is passing its tests. The RAM appears to be bad but its the second batch and is passing its tests as well were as the last time it failed and checked out.

Any help is much appreciated. If I need to elaborate some more please let me know.

I actually had something similar happen today caused by a psu situation. Make sure ur gtx 470 has a two psu cables directly from the psu that are NOT shared with any other components.

Yep. I have 2 separate 6pin PCIe connectors going directly to the card from the power source.
