Hello.

I have a 16 gb 4x4 ddr3 corsair vengeance memory. I have been experiencing blue screens of death I made some research and ended up in the ram. I made some test one by one, two by two, all of them and always with the same result. Sadly I have no idea what the mean. The results are the following

Sorry I confirmed my email but it doesn't let me upload images.

I hope somebody can help me.. thank you anyways

Consider just using 2 x 4gb of ram and see if the PC boots up without errors. 8gb is more than enough for more than 75% of the population so unless you are doing intensive cpu work, video editing, movie-making or programming the the nth degree, better to just use the 8gb of ram.

The pc boots ok with all the sticks maybe i should have said it but the blue screen only appears when im gaming. A checked every ram stick and all of them gave me that error. I also tested 2 stick with no luck and same error. How can i now which of them are the good (if any) sticks to use those..

What game are you playing, do the psecifiactions match your OS?
Older 32 bit games do tend to require certain hardware and OS requiremnts.

A Bsod during a PC game is quite odd, it might refer to lack of free space (you need a minimum of 25%) or that your hard drive is failing and is not allowing temp files to increase past a certain size. If you play single player mode, save every five minutes or so, so that the temp file storage size is not so large per saved game.

What model number, speed ram are you using, iis it overclocked?
" 4x4 ddr3 corsair vengeance"
Is the ram new or from another Pc that might have been faulty?
What is your motherboard brand, model number?
What brand model numer is your PSU, video card, are you using more than one hard drive?
Is the game installed on the OS drive (partition) or if you have another hdd, is it installed there?

PS -whenever you ask a Questions, it is best to always give all your hardware specs, the answer just mght be a low powered PSU or the wrong type od ram or mixed brands. It could also be a recent driver update to a BETA version or an actual incorrect version for your video card (if you actually use one or two)

Starcraft II PC Requirements.

Even though you are playing online, you still have to install system files that are really rather outdated, especially the video card requirement. This could be your issues.

If you have a Repair disk or OS install disk, consider doing a Repair and check whether Directx is listed then do the repair for it.

As for the ram, you should test each stick in each slot for 10 passes as it might not be the ram but some dust in the slot or smudges on the ram gold connectors.

I'll get back to you another time, it's 3am here, time for bed.

Rosewill 650W CAPSTONE-650 seems to appear to be a good PSU but there are mixed reviews for it. It could be that your PSU is not doing its duty and is not providing adequate power resources fror the ram or some other hardware.

It could still be a ram problem (as well as the PSU), if possible try a different PSU if you can get one.

Ram usually comes in pairs, kit of 2 (or triples for a triple slot motherboard) so it might be that you have mixed the ram modules from their matched pairs.

Try playing a different game that is more recent other than StarCraft, even a single player game.

Have you overclocked the ram? the cpu, the video card? There was mention in your specs of OC for the cpu. "PROSS: Intel i5 3570k OC @3.9Ghz"

Running out of ideas, you might have to actually go buy a new pair of ram, at least you willl have spares if the ram is not the problem ...

Biostar doesn't seem to list your motherboard, at least not in their keyword search option, I'm referring to a diferent site for your motherboard specs (there are not many availalbe)

Bus PCI-E 2.0

The bus interface for your motherboard is version 3.0, the video card is only 2.0 so there might be a minor problem in that area. Yes, they all say things about backward compatiblity or the 3.0 version is not much difference but I still think that if you are going to have a highend motherboard, you should have a video card to match its specifications.

May I suggest that you test your ram using the onboard video out option rather than the use of the video card for display puposes..remove the video card from the PC.

Guys i did everything mentioned and it was ok. no problems with ram besides the same error, the directx reported no problems so I made more research and find out that was indeed the game. SC2 is causing the BSOD i updated my vcard drivers repaired the game with no luck.. also many are having my same problem.. with no solution.. Thank you guys for everything.. i will keep searching ^^

I suppose you could try compatibility mode and have the game played in a window, that might work.

SSD: Sandisk Extrem SSD 120Gb SDSSDX-120G-G25 ( it has 34.3 gb of free space )

if you only got the OS on the SSD then you should have more than half the volume as free space, not just 34gb.

For windows 7 x64, you'd need at least 36gb as free space. I think your game files and downloads like Steam are going into the Program files (x86) folder.

I think if you acquired a video card more attuned to the game, even an old 8600 Gt, you would find the game less troublesome.
