BSODs on New Build

Hello all,

I recently built a rig with the following components...

Corsair Carbide 500R - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

i5 3570k CPU

Antec 850w PSU

G.Skill Sniper 8GB - http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

ASUS Sabertooth Z77 Mobo

Cooler Master 212+ Heatsink

Radeon HD6950 GPU

1TB WD Drive, and 160GB SSD - http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/searchtools/item...

I'm trying to install Windows 7 HP, 64-bit. Going through the installation, it always seem to throw a BSOD when it gets to "Expanding Windows files". These vary, such as Memory_Management or IRQL... a number of them seem to point to memory, however. Sometimes, the Installer itself will give an error. I've received 0xC0000005 and 0x80070714.

I've run Memtest86+ a couple of passes, and everything seems okay. All parts are newly purchased except the TB HD, PSU, and GPU. I have also updated the Z77 to the latest BIOS. It should also be noted that it doesn't seem to matter which drive I attempt to install to... both throw STOP errors. I've also reseated the RAM, and tried different configurations.

I also notice that the BIOS sets the RAM to 1600 by default. I -did- try to go into manual and set it to 1866, but I couldn't figure out which voltage to set to 1.20 (VCCSA or something?) I don't know if that would throw me errors or not... I would think at optimized defaults it'd install just fine, but apparently not.

I'm really hoping it isn't a dead on arrival or something like that. Hopefully it's just something that needs configured or that I can do--everything I'm reading seems to point to the memory. If this isn't the case, a mod can move the question but I'm hoping you folks can help me.

Thank you!

Hi, set BIOS to default and then try enabling the XMP in BIOS.

Hey again guys,

I ran the Memtest86+ overnight and sure enough, errors cropped up.

I did 2 passes on the one stick and no error came up, so I tried to install Windows with just that stick. Still a BSOD, but I unfortunately didn't have the time to make note of it before I had to be out the door.

I'll test each piece individually extensively tonight... isolate which is the stick with errors, and then try to do an install with the good one (assuming they both aren't dead) in a previously unused slot.

I'll post with the results, or any further errors when and if I come across them.

Thanks!

if you have an old pair of ram just use those and RMA those suckers...even if you find which stick is giving issues your still going to have to return both sticks
