System can be idle, i could be playing Diablo III or Starcraft II
could simply be trying to right click to close something in taskbar
and it will just freeze and then do that for no reason...
I never over clocked it... just put it together and turned it on..


Previous board was an INTEL DQ35JOE
with Quad Core processor and 8 gigs ddr2.

And on that board i was getting critical error's 41 id in system log.
ALSO this is a brand new 750 watt psu.

Figured it out. Code 101 is low vcore. Go into your bios and change the cpu voltage from Auto to 1.25v

That's what's causing it? i'll try that when i get home. my PC has been stuck on a blue screen for the last 4 hours because i'm at work currently.

I'll give that a shot.

I'd like to over clock it... but i dont know how.
i'm new to this whole EFI BIOS etc. Stuff has changed alot....

I very much doubt low voltage is causing your blue screens.

My first guess is your RAM. I see quite a few people with Kingston using 1.65v RAM and not the 1.5v required by the integrated memory controller on the 2600K. What are the exact RAM specs or the product code?

Also what "brand new 750w power supply" are you using?

Power supply is absolute trash. It's not even 80+ certified. I would not attempt an overclock with it. That power supply is a mislabled 550w power supply at best. Thankfully a 550 Ti only needs a good 400-450w PSU.

What about your RAM? Sandy Bridge processors need 1.5v RAM. I have seen 1.65v RAM cause blue screens and I have seen low cas ( 7 or 8 ) RAM cause blue screens due to not playing nice with the integrated memory controller.

You should NOT have to change the vcore on a stock chip to get it to run correctly. The power supply or the RAM is your problem. I would bet on it. The power supply either not producing the rated power on various rails or high ripple and noise ( "dirty" power ) producing errors could be the problem.

The Power Supply i've had no problems with.
it powers everything as it should. I just don't know...
I've worked with PC's up to Quad core. I have not kept up on the industry.

RAM should be fine it's 1.5v. Since you are having blue screens I don't know how you can be sure the power supply is fine.........

Ultra is a brand known for crap power supplies. They are just marketed well by TigerDirect. That specific model uses ShenZhen RuiSheng Yuan as an OEM. Trust me when I say you don't want one of their products in your computer. The only good ( very few ) Ultra power supplies use Andyson as the OEM.

That model only supplies 45 amps on the 12v rail for 540 watts ( amps x volts = watts. ) A quality brand would call that a 550-600 watt power supply since the 12v rail is the most important thing in a modern computer.

A Corsair 750TX V2 has a full 62 amps on the 12v rail supplying 744 watts just for an example.

Here is a typical review of some Ultra power supplies. Keep in mind these are the "good" models made by Andyson.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/11/24/ultra_x4_850w...

If you want a quality power supply and you do since it's the single most important part of your computer stick with Corsair, Seasonic, PC ower and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec. You can almost always find a quality unit on sale somewhere just as cheap or even cheaper than a garbage unit.

Ok first you just have a 550 Ti right? From that website these are the best deals I see.

First here is a list of how much power a whole system needs with pretty much every graphics card.

http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm

Ok first is the Antec HCG ( High current gamer ) series 520w model. It's made by Seasonic ( a very good thing ) and is only $62.

http://www.microcad.ca/products/details/Antec-HCG-520-A...

Second is this XFX 550w model that is also made by Seasonic for $67.

http://www.microcad.ca/products/details/XFX-XPS-550W-SE...

Both of these units provide enough power for 2 x 550 Ti cards in Sli. They also provide plenty of power for any single graphics card up to and including the GTX 670/680 and HD 7950/7970.

The only Corsair units that compete in price on that site are the CX line and they are Corsair's budget line and a step down from either of the 2 models I listed.

A great power supply and a complete waste of money unless you plan on running 2 x GTX 680s. So unless you plan on dropping $1000 on graphics cards to replace that ~$100 GTX 550 Ti it's just not necessary.

There is no risk to overpowering your system but there is no reason to either. That list I linked to above is for the whole system with the listed power requirements. Also when Nvidia or AMD recommend a wattage they base it on you having a "generic" power supply not a quality unit. The ones I listed are very high quality. Notice the 550w XFX has 44 amps on the 12v rail. Or 1 less than the "750w" Ultra. And that assumes the Ultra can even supply the rated power.

What is your multiplier set at? Optimized Defaults often puts a slight overclock on your system but the settings obviously aren't optimized because they are causing a blue screen. A clock interval interrupt is almost always too high of a clock speed with not enough voltage to support it or bad memory timings. Clear your CMOS, set RAM to XMP Profile, and if you want to overclock I suggest you read one of the overclocking stickies in the Overclocking section of the forum.

Ok just to go over a few things.

You have the latest BIOS?

You are not overclocking?

You ran Memtest for 8 to 10 hours with no errors? RAM is at default DDR3 1333 speed and default cas latency settings? Cas will likely be 9-9-9-27 2T.

You are using a legit copy of Windows?

If yes to all of the above try a different SATA port.

A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor is probably still a hardware error. You may very well have a bad motherboard. P67 boards can be picky with RAM as well.

Try the Load Failsafe defaults in BIOS.

Run Prime 95 and see if you get any errors.

Clearing CMOS is a good idea. There will be either a button or more likely a jumper. Your manual will tell you how or you may have to use a flashlight and just check the board. Once you clear CMOS you will have to go back and set your SATA ports back to AHCI for your computer to boot if they were set there when you installed Windows.

Unplug the machine, remove the CMOS battery, wait a few minutes (5 minutes is plenty in most cases), put battery back in, power up. This should clear the CMOS to factory defaults which is what you want. Not "Optimized Defaults".

Or you have a CMOS jumper on your board. Unplug the machine, leave the battery in, move the jumper cap from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3. Leave it like this for about 10 seconds. Move it back to pins 1 and 2 and plug the machine in and power up. As anort said, make sure you set your SATA config to whichever way it was when you installed windows or it wont boot.

Reread this thread and make sure you have tried everything including clearing CMOS.

If so you pretty much have a bad motherboard. It happens. Your old power supply could actually have damaged it or it could just be defective. Thankfully since it's new it should be easy to RMA.

Even quality brand motherboards are defective sometimes. I have had them as well as just about every part of a computer you can think of. In fact the only part I have never got a defective one of is a CPU. The first step is always diagnosing the problem. The steps to doing that are in this thread.

If you have more than 1 stick of RAM, only test with 1 at a time starting with the first DIMM slot and move down. It's possible that you have either a bad stick or a bad DIMM (I've personally seen both that result the same) It would be worthwhile to run Memtest86+ if possible once you get the machine to post.

Trying to also eliminate RAM as being the issue.

This has all been done. Still getting random BSODS
i've ran all the stress tests out there. I've done torture tests on Prime 95.
I've ran PC Check 7.05 in dos on every component and piece of hard ware.
everything passes 100%.

It has to be a driver or something that's causing the bsods... but it doesnt make sense because i'm using all the updated drivers from ASUS website.

I can't find the cause....
