    Default Z68 Professional Gen3 Machine Check Error

    I recently bought (aprox 30 days ago) a Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3, and for approximately 2 weeks everything was great.

    After about two weeks I began to encounter a Machine Check Error BSOD with the error code x009c. This BSOD/error only occurs ONLY on a cold boot. If the machine is running for a while and then I shut it down or restart it, the error does not occur.

    Some pertinent information:
    Approximate ambient room temp: 20C
    Approximate cpu idle temp: 30-34 C

    Hardware Specs:
    CPU: core i5 2500k
    Motherboard: Z68 Pro Gen 3
    Graphics: ATI 6950 HD
    Ram: G Skill RipJawsX F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL
    HD1: Crucial M4 64GB (OS Drive)
    HD2: Crucial M4 128GB
    HD3&4: WD Caviar Black 750GB 7200 RPM
    Cooling: Noctua NH-D14
    Power: Corsair HX750W

    Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    I just recalled another odd thing that has occurred infrequently. Occasionally I will freeze on the Bios splash screen.

    Does Dr.Debug on the physical motherboard tell you a error code?

    When the BSOD occurs DR Debug doesnt say anything.

    So, interesting development here... I restarted the computer to take some screen shots of my bios. I changed the bios visual profile from the original fatal1ty picture background to the the black fatal1ty background. Saved and quit out of the bios. The computer proceeded to reboot, then the bios splash screen freezes, and I get dr debug code of "0d" Which I believe is Cpu initialization failure, that is if "0d" = "0D" which I'm not certain it does.. I proceeded to try to clear CMOS from the button on the back of the motherboard. Same error upon next boot.

    Not sure what I should do for this error code, any guidance is appreciated.

    My bios version is P1.3
    Vtt was 1.09
    dram 1.5

    cant think what it could be,what speed is your ram running at? vtt seems abit high if its at stock clocks,normally its 1.05v,it will freeze blue screen if its too much same as if its not enough voltage,dram voltage is fine
