Hello All,

I have been having problems with my custom built computer and here is the details.


Intel Core i7-3770
Cooler Master Hyper 212 heatsink
Vengance 8gb (1600) 4gb x 2
WD 500 Gb HDD
Nvidia GeForce 560 OC (EVGA)
Asus P8Z77-V


Installed windows 7 ultimate x64 first, had a great time, also intstalled Ubuntu 12.04 64 Bit. No problems for like 3 months.
After installing some Windows update I have had problems with BSOD only ocassionally though.

I have tried:
Memtest: No errors
WD Extended scan: No errors
All drivers are updated(recently)
Also I have been booting to Ubuntu fine no problems

Additional Info:
Windows will some times run CHKDSK on start up and then BSOD occasionally. After dealing with this I have installed a fresh copy of windows 7 and I still get the BSOD. My linux partition is still there. I do not believe it is a Error in Hardware since Ubuntu works without fault. I need some serrious help guys. Please

This indicates that invalid system memory has been referenced.

One of the major RAM related BSOD's. Run memtest86 to confirm if the RAM is faulty.

I ran a boot-able memtest86 and my results:

Iterations: 8 Test_Sel: Std Pass: 0 Errors: 1000000 and still climbing

I assume this test result indicates something is wrong with my ram. Does it have to do anything with my CPU cache at all?
I had to switch the ram modules to position 2 and 4 instead of 1 and 3 because my ram would not fit under my Hyper 212 cooler could that be an issue?

Also after further look into my BIOS i saw that my motherboard is trying to run it at a frequency of 1333mhz instead of what my ram is(1600mhz). Could that be an issue as well? I can try to customize the frequency of 1600mhz

Thanks for the reply. If I have bad ram, what would you suggest on getting that would fit under my hyper 212 cooler?

Thanks again for all of the help
