I dont know what else to do, I keep getting a blue screen and errors. i check the dmp files and see 0x000000f4. Apparently its a "rare" error so I cant find any good help. Im not a computer guru and don't know to much. I built my Computer the other day and it was working GREAT until just a day or two ago and I started getting blue screens at random times. Sometimes I'm playing games, others I'm just surfing the web. And once I wasn't doing anything just sitting in my chair after I started it up. Heres what Bluescreenview shows.

16GB Corsair Vengence 1600
EVGA GTX 580 1.5GB
Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 mobo
60gb Corsair Force 3 SSD (boot drive)
1TB Samsung HD103SJ HDD (data drive)

Checked both hard drives for errors and finished with 0 errors found. Please help if anyone can. Thanks

Update the Firmware for that SSD first.....
Then check if the BSODs arise again.

And make sure the Pagefile is not on the SSD too.

Run Memtest and check the RAMs too...

I looked up the firmware for the ssd and it says that I have to have it in AHCI mode to update the firmware but I have no clue how to do that. Any ideas?

Go into your BIOS, hit Delete on the POST screen. Once there, you have to change your drive mode from SATA to AHCI I believe.

memtest86 for sure. For me about 90% of my blue screens were RAM related.

First you need to change the registry to enable AHCI through windows.... follow these steps:
Exit all Windows-based programs.
Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV
In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.

Then reboot the system. Remember you will not be able to boot into windows unless you change the IDE Controller Mode in the BIOS from IDE/RAID to AHCI.
Therefore you need to get into the BIOS and change those particular settings.

After you have saved and exited the BIOS with the new settings to AHCI. you will be able to boot into windows, then run the Firmware update for the SSD with Admin Privileges.

Okay. After I run the firmware do I stay in AHCI or do i have to go back to the way it was?

No let it stay in AHCI. It happens to have it's advantages over standard IDE. Especially with SSD's.

Right Click My Computer> Properties
Advanced System Settings
Performance
Advanced
Look for Virtual Memory there.
Click on Change
You'll see a list of your drives there and the Allocated Pagefile on each drive.
Select the SSD and click on no paging file and then click Set.
On a different Drive, click once to select, then choose System Managed size and click Set.
Ok...Apply... ok... Apply & OK.
It'll ask you for a reboot. do it.

Okay well im back bios was laready set to AHCI but one of those files had a 3 instead of a 0, changed it to 0 but the ssd firmware updater tool didnt see my ssd =(. I just did the part about the pagefile and it didnt ask me for a reboot should i just do a reboot anyway?

Yes, reboot.
The changing of that Value from 3 to 0 will come into being only after a reboot.
After that you're supposed to be trying the SSD firmware Update tool.

No, im sorry I wasnt clear. I changed the file from 3 to 0 then rebooted into bios then made sure that bios were set to AHCI then robooted again. then ran the ssd firmware Update tool and it didnt see my hard drive after that. So then I just did the pagefile change to my data hdd, I'm asking if I should reboot after that

Okay well i rebooted once again, but the updater tool I downloaded still wont show my SSD. How do I check which firmware I currently have? Shoot for all I know the problem was that bios were already set to AHCI but that one file had a 3 instead of a 0. But I still want to check the firmware to see if its up to date and if its not I guess I'll call Corsair and ask them why my SSD isn't being seen.

Run both programs. You don't need to start the AS SSD benchmarking process. Just run the program till you get the beginning screen. Place both the programs together on the desktop, side by side and take a screenshot.
Paste it in MS Paint.
Save as JPEG, upload to any site and post it's link here.

Do not forget to choose the SSD in both the programs before taking the Screenshot...

It doesn't see your SSD because it's on the Marvel Sata port of the mobo....:( 
You need to unplug it from inside and put it on the SATA Port which is labeled as SATA_1.

Ok. All you need to do is switch off the rig.
Unplug your SSD Sata Cable from the Mobo and plug it into the GRAY port. Then restart the rig. Check the Boot order in the BIOS again, set to SSD being first.
Save exit
And post the another screen shot here.

Okay well I swapped out the connections to the sata1 port and as soon as I booted up the computer recognized it and downloaded drivers for it(the first time it has done that) and had me do a reboot. Now its running great and it doesn't seem to be having any problems so for the time being I'm going to say that this problem is solved. Alyoshka thank you SO much for the help and helping me realize just how dumb I was lol. Thanks again!
