Hello, I'd like to first of all say thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me.


I built this PC in February. From day one I have been getting random blue screen errors, with many different bug check and error codes. Bug check 109 seems to be the one I have seen the most. I have ran memtest on my RAM sticks, one came back clean after 8 passes, the other had errors. So I re-installed Windows with only the good RAM stick, and am still getting blue screen crashes. They are, however less frequent. I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers from the manufactures for all hardware components.

I haven't run into this much trouble setting up any of the other PCs I have built, so I am a bit lost trying to figure this out. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link to the minidump files that have been generated since my last Windows install.

The 3 minidumps are attributed to memory corruption but what bios version are you on? You may either need to update your bios or RMA the faulty RAM. Here is a link to the latest bios but be careful. I only suggest this if your bios if F5 or lower. IE F6's Modify memory compatibility should be enough. Due to the instability of your system I suggest only attempting this from within bios. A windows bios update could brick your motherboard if your system crashes.

Also note that any speed above 2133 the memory is only supported 1 stick per channel.

I am running the F7 Bios. I updated from the stock bios when I first started having the random crashes. I had planned on getting an RMA on the RAM, but wanted to see if anyone had any input on other underlying issues.

Only other underlying issue I know of is the overclock RAM speed limit for dual channel of 2133. Noted from your motheroboards memory support list.

Thanks! I don't plan on overclocking my RAM that much, so I don't foresee any problems there. I'll RMA the RAM and post back if that corrects the problem.
