What I have done: Changed dram voltage off auto and set it to what its specified 1.65 voltage
Checked all driver issues.
I get BSOD's randomly and I can't ever make them happen. Last night it happpened when playing music, other times I'll just leave the computer on during the night, wake up and it BSOD'd and restarted. I've looked up on Ram Compaitability issue since the 6 core processors apparently are very picky.
My ram is not on there, but no 4gb stick rams are on there.
IS this the reason why this may be happening? If so why couldn't I use 16gb of ram or the 4gb sticks?
Any help would be much appreciated, been pulling my hair out over this for a week now.
My next move was going to update the bios but I'm not sure if that will help. I need to check the ram to see if maybe one of the sticks is bad. But would the computer still run for 2 days than randomly get a BSOD if that was the case?
This BSOD happens whether I have the 6 cores unlocked or not.
Welcome, Newcomer! So you've got the voltages set, how about the timing and frequency?
If you do have all specs set, try booting with one stick at a time. Successful or not, move the stick to the next open DIMM slot. Repeat this until you've used all 4 sticks in every slot.
Alternatively and recommended, test your RAM (one stick at a time) using MemTest86+ . Download and burn the disc image. Allow the test to run overnight, or for 8-10 passes. That is of course, unless the stick being tested has errors discovered by MT86+.
