I sometimes get a Blue Screen and I'm wondering if it could be related to the memory configuraiton, so I thought I'd ask here. Some of the voltages and settings aren't exactly what I expected. It isn't overclocked, just maybe wierd?

OS: Vista 64 Ultimate.
Motherboard GA-MA790XT-UD4P
CPU: Phenom II X4 Black Edition 955, 3200 Mhz
Memory 2x2GB Corsair XMS3 1600 (DDR3)
Timigs (11-11-11-30-41) (CL-RCD-RP-RAS-RC)
--> I expected this to be like 9-9-9-xx-xx

Voltages:
CPU : 0.975V mostly --> I expected this to be like 1.25V or 1.3V
-12V : swaps between -7.04v & -8.45v. No where close to -12V
All the others look pretty normal.

Graphics Card ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB
CPU Fan: XtremeGear Ultra Twin Heatpipes Cool Copper Heatsink CPU Cooling

The CPU Cores are running at 39c/102f, so I think that's fine.
The GPU temperatrue is reported by Everest as:
--> GPU Diode: DispIO:54c/129f, MemIO 74c/165f, Shader 63c/145f
which seems high. CPUID's HWMonitor reports just the first value (54c/129f).

Any thoughts?

The Reason your CPU Voltages are dropping is probably cool and quiet... so disable that and make sure the ram is at specified timings and voltage.

Hello. I double checked the cool and quite. It seems on Vista 64 the way to change that is to set the power saving profile to the performance one so it doesn't try to save power..

I made the change. I also found an ATI Radeon driver update. So I installed that.

I'm waiting to see if the problem re-occurs. So far I've been 5 days w/out a blue screen. That's good. So I'm not messing with the ram timings and voltages right now.

If the system has stabilized then the problem most likely was the video drivers. Wouldn't be the first time the video drivers were the problem. Ugh.

I'll keep you posted.

Thanks!
