I recently upgrade to windows 8 and even since then almost daily i get a bsod for memory manangment. I retain same overclock settings I did on windows 7 which 100 percet stable but now my settings super unstable and I wonder if it is factor.
-Windows 8 has enhanced data integrity checking and will detect errors that windows 7 will not. (not to say that is the problem)
- memory chip connections to the module board can fail with repeated heat cycles
this issues is compounded by the new lead free solder used to make the connections.
(again, not saying this is your problem)
-if you put your dump on the cloud, it is pretty easy for someone to take a quick look at it and look for easy to find issues. Overclock issues are hard to debug, often you will see processors missing interrupts because setup and hold times of circuits are being violated because of two fast clock speeds.
same with hardware drivers, for example a driver may give 16 clock ticks at normal speed to allow the hardware to respond but it might need twice that at a higher clock rate. (depending on how it is written)
Again last night at 3am I got random bsod for page_fault usually it is memory management. So manually check all non microsoft driver with microsfot driver verifer they passed, I then did all microsoft driver i bluescreened the first time but got in second time but run slow but I would expect that with all microsoft drivers running at once.
My qeusiton do think safe to assume it is hardware related fault rather then driver? any ideas anybody ?
Your first post was overclock, system spec, what setting did you use to overclock, cpu, gpu or what.
This is typical problem with improper overclocking, What did u use to Overclock, software. If so you may have killed your cache this is a problem with cache memory. Disable Cache in bios and see if your problem go's away. Overclocking should only be used if OCing is needed and in todays cpu,gpus there is no need to even attempt it. The problem is CPU use much less power today and if the voltage was not turned up to match the clock speed your risking improper system cooling and timing between memory and volts between the cpu bus and memory . This will cause spikes in the data bus lines and cause the bus to become burnt, These errors are most likely do to improper oclocking
You can get crashes if you verify all of the drivers at the same time. It is better to just verify a subset at a time if you are looking for a particular problem. If you are overclocking at the same time, it is ok to verify drivers if you are looking for timing bugs but the verifier slows down the driver and the overclocking requires the driver to talk to its hardware in a shorter time frame. For example, a driver might allow 16 clock ticks to setup some hardware electronics at one speed. When you overclock those 16 clock ticks are too fast and violate the cards electronics require signal setup and hold time so the device does not finish in time and fails.
sorry, its not the best way to explain.
I have see very good device drivers crash when new faster CPUs are released.
only to find out that some programmer assumptions on the speed of the clock
