Solved BSOD when pc is 'cold' Tags: Homebuilt Overclocking Blue Screen Systems Last response: September 22, 2010 6:53 PM in Systems Share divac September 20, 2010 5:48:46 PM My newly built PC goes BSOD 1 or 2 times during the early 15 minutes or so, but it ran fine hours afterwards. At first, I thought it was a coincidence, but this happens every day for the past week. I got the hyper 212+ with no overclocking yet, so temps shouldn't be a problem. Especially since hours of gaming doesn't crash it. What could be the cause?

Your RAM wants 1.65V and I bet your motherboard is only giving them 1.5V by default. Try setting the bios RAM settings manually to match the RAMs specs. divac September 22, 2010 6:49:57 PM Thanks, you just saved me lots of time. It's been stable ever since I changed the voltage in bios. divac September 22, 2010 6:53:33 PM Best answer selected by divac. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
