Hey there, i was trying to figure out what's going on with my pc on my own but i ran out of ideas.

specs:

asus m479xtd evo
8 gb ram patriot
tx 650 corsair psu
phenom x4 955 3.2 ghz
ge force gtx260 sp 216

I started getting bsods like IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL , MEMORY_MANAGMENT or without any specified error.

and sometimes bsod caused by:

ntoskrnl.exe ntoskrnl.exe+f20c4 fffff800`02a1f000 fffff800`03005000 0x005e6000 0x5147d9c6 2013-03-19 05:21:42 Microsoft® Windows® Operating System NT Kernel & System 6.1.7601.18113 (win7sp1_gdr.130318-1533) Microsoft Corporation C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe


- Soo i formated my hdd, went for a clean install
- Ran memtest - it went ok - and then replaced RAMs "just in case"
- switched my graphic to another one which i borrowed from a friend
- updated bios to latest
- checked hdd with WD tester
- ran prime95 for an hour without errors

Could it possibly be the mobo or processor itself even tho prime95 test went fine ?

Please respond, i'm out of ideas.

Hi
The only idea i can give ya here :
1. Try testing with other PSU - maybe you have power module issues
2. Try visual inspection of you Mobo Capacitors - you have old mobo maybe that`s the bproblem

If you still have sporadic BSOD then go for the new PC .... my last was phenom also but as you can see my sign i finaly open my eyes :)

firstival, thanks for answering!

I can't change my psu because i don't have any other, what i did before i plugged my psu to my buddy's pc and checked how that works, it was okay, no bsods voltages were fine.

I did checked my mobo "visually" unfortunately everything seems to be okay.

I think i will need to replace processor or the mobo, have anyone of you heard of a faulty processor that revealed himself after a year of working fine ?
