GA-EP45-UD3P Rev. 1.1 Intermittent BSOD
I am getting an intermittent BSOD that blows out the ICH10 SATA RAID and the Intel Matrix Storage Manager runs a forced verify on the array.
I built my system very carefully and checkked each component thoroughly along the way.
System: GA-EP45-UD3P Rev. 1.1, BIOS f8, CPU: Q6600, Memory: 16gb Crucial 2 x CT2KIT51264AA667, GPU: EVGA 9600GT 512mb, Hard Drives: 2 x 74gb WD Raptors and 4 x Seagate 320gb in RADI 5, OS: Windows Server 2003 R2 x64.
The Video card, and all 6 hard drives, as well as their respective cables, were all up and runing with no problems on an Intel D975XBX2 motherboard prior to this. I initially setup the board with 2 4gb sticks of G.Skill DDR2 800 memory and ran mem test and WD Drive utils etc. just to make sure everything checked out prior to going to the 16gb memory. I was already experiencing the BSOD at that point.
The only thing I am a little suspicious of is the BIOS. When I first set this board up they had the f7 and f8 BIOS files posted, now the highest is f6. Should I back rev to the f6 BIOS, or are there any tips or tricks anybody knows of for the Intel RAID driver?
Running Windbg and analyzing the memory dump only shows:
Default Bucket ID: DRIVER_FAULT
Image Name: ntkrnlmp.exe
Doesn't really help much. This seemed to have started after I loaded the driver for the Intel Matrix RAID. So, again I am down to suspecting the ICH10 Raid controller, driver or BIOS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Every time it does this it takes a good 1 1/2-2 hours for the RAID to go back to a status of normal.
