Hello, i have recently put together a new pc with the following specs:
Asus P7P55D-E Deluxe
Radeon HD 6870
2x 4GB Corsair Dominator 1333mhz
XFX 750W Black edition
Running windows 7 ultimate 64bits.
Then I started having some trouble. Random applications started crashing and I started getting a screen flash followed by BSOD's with different errors, specially when I try to shut down the PC. (It's not everytime this happens though.)
I have all the latest drivers of my MB and VGA installed and device manager doesnt complain about anything.
So after checking out the reasons behind the BSOD errors I decided to run memtest86+ (newest version). I left it runing overnight with the 2 memory sticks in dual channel mode and it ran for about 8 or 9 hours. The one and only error found came up with about 30 or 40 minutes of testing.
Btw: my memory timings are hardset to 9-9-9-24 and voltage to 1.6.
Weird thing is, I dont get any BSOD while gaming, even after 5 - 6 hours straight.
A little help please! I am at work right now and my pc is running memtest again at home with only 1 stick in btw.
If you are running mem at stock freq and timings and getting error in memtest it sounds broken to me. Try testing one DIMM at a time in the same slot, then do the same in the other slot. This will help isolate the faulty DIMM or tell you if its the mobo.
