Here's the problem: my system fails Prime95 Blend and Large FFTs and Linx tests and the system regularly crashes when playing games (holds true for every single game I've tried, from NBA 2k11 to Crysis to War for Cybertron). I'm not trying to overclock, I just want my computer to run.
The strange thing is, the RAM and the CPU work perfectly when tested separately. Memtest86+ ran for 8 passes without problems and Prime95 Small FFTs ran fine for 2 hours. However, the system failed tests that stressed both the RAM and the CPU at the same time. Prime95 Blend and Large FFTs and Linx all encountered an error within half an hour of testing.
Here's what I've tried:
Increased by the RAM voltage and the CPU voltage (to 1.58V and 1.375V, respectively)
Set the RAM at XMP settings (1600 MHz and 1.68V)
Set the RAM at default settings (1350 MHz and 1.55V)
Tried to run games and tests with one GPU at a time (removed the other GPU)
The motherboard has sounds issues, it doesn't recognize even the most updated audio drivers
The dual 4870s and the HDDs worked fine with my old system (e8400 OC'd, Corsair 4GB, Asus Rampage Formula)
This is a link to the minidump files from the game-crashing BSODs.
What exactly is causing the problem? Compatibility between the i7 975 and the Corsair RAM? The DX58SO? The PSU?
Is there anything else I can do?
Lol, I'm not Dl'ing a Rar from a link on Toms sorry,
I was going to suggest trying to boot the system one stick of ram at a time though, if system boots with the ram its fine and you can rule that out as a potential issue.
memtest isnt comprehensive enough but booting it is imo
