Hello Everybody.

I'll start out with the specs:

Mobo: Asus M4A785TD-V EVO
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE (using stock cooler)
GPU: OnBoard
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) (F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL)
PSU: OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700SXS 700W ATX12V / EPS12V
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb
OS: Windows XP 32-bit



I ran memtest86 for 4 hours, No Errors.
I ran Prime95 for 10 hours, No Errors.

I will just randomly receive the Bsod, It does not matter what type of task i am doing. I've updated all the drivers on the motherboard, I'm pretty much to my ends, I have desperately tried to disgnose this problem to no avail.

I desperately ask for your help.

You're not looking for errors with Prime95, you're looking for temps. What's the highest temperature the CPU gets?

Have you overclocked the CPU? What case are you using?

Using Asus Probe, it usually hovers around 39 C and 41 C. The CPU is currently at stock speeds, the case CM Centurion 590, I've checked every fan(2+cpu) and seems to be running fine.

When I ran prime95, the highest was 50 C -52 C, the system kept strong.

I talked to a co-worker and he mentioned it might be the memory voltage, to up it to 2.1v, I did it wasn't stable, also to try slot 1 and 3, instead of 3 and 4.. Could anybody offer some suggestions? please..

I have same random BSOD problem with a similar build.

Amd 965 125w, 8g ocz obsidian ddr3 , windows 7 64 and same mobo.

Memory oc to 800. timings and voltage set to ocz spec.

Watercolled in a Thermaltake Xaser case.

Temps are fine. Bios updated to latest release (0512).

Today I set memory timings and voltage back to auto.

Let me know if you have any developments.

Well, I solved the problem. One of my sticks was defective, I removed one stick, ran Memtest86, it failed after the 6th test, put the 2nd stick in, and it passed with flying colors, I booted with that stick and surf the net, did the typical stuff, that would cause BSOD, it passed too.. so I RMA'd.

I suggest you do the same.
