    Ya, BSOD's caused by drivers are very hard to narrow down. Safe mode can help as could msconfig with loading services one by one, but since this is random and not any specific time frame there is no way for you to logically test like that to find the cause.

    Did you install anything new since this started happening? If not, can you give me your settings and let me see if maybe something looks to be off. Template in my signature

    I haven't installed anything new since this is a completely new build that I built like a week ago. I noticed the BSODs after a few days (first I thought it was just windows update rebooting but then I spotted the minidumps). Here are the BIOS settings:

    Ch-C Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Hopefully I noted 'em all down correctly. Anyway, as I've said before these are the settings that the BIOS has chosen, nothing has been changed by me in these parts of the BIOS. Also, if it makes any difference, here's the rest of my system:

    CoolerMaster SilentPro 500W
    WD Caviar Black 1TB (WD1001FALS)
    PowerColor HD4890 1GB
    LG GH-22NS S-ATA DVD drive
    and Scythe Mugen 2 as the CPU cooler

    First please load optimized defaults, you are using Fail Safe and they may give you issues. Tips for loading optimized are posted here, please read >>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Set these >>>
    QPI Link Speed .............................. [Auto] (BIOS shows 4,8GHz) << Set x36 or X44
    Uncore Frequency .......................... [Auto] (2133MHz) << Set 2x your ram multiplier or above, which you also need to set. If using 133 Blck then set 12 Ram multi and 24-26 Uncore multi

    Then you are going to need to find a stable QPI/Vtt setting, and set your ram voltage manually to spec

    I think the main issues are likely due to you using fail safe settings right now, start over with optimized then if you want I can give you a full set of suggested settings later tonight

    Now I've set the BIOS settings to optimized. I'd appreciate your help with finding the proper settings. I tried to set my timings correctly, set the QPI, uncore and RAM speed correctly and my RAM voltage up to spec, but just with those settings I couldn't get past the windows 7 bootup. At what range should I start to look for a stable QPI/Vtt voltage setting? I tried 1,3V since it was still listed as white (which I presume is "safe") and I got past the login screen but it soon rebooted after that. I guess that means I need to add more voltage?

    As you can see I'm kind of new with this stuff so any help is appreciated and I'd also like to thank you for the help you've given me so far (hopefully the BSODs will stop now).

    Just a note everyone, beware of .ru.pdf files. I have seen pdf files containing bad things. .ru files make matters worse. Im not saying anyone in particular on this thread is trying to do anything not very nice, just maybe a different link to the manual provided.

    .ru is Russian Federation which is highly known for malicious attacks. On a couple seperate occasions, ip addresses from .ru tried to access my computer .

    Just please be cautious is all im saying. Gigabyte.us may be a better choice.

    dbee, I guess it was a spammer? I don't see any .ru links, musta been removed while I was out. I just had a tough time removing a user who spammed here, actual person too I think as they made a real post in this section as well with a proper Gigabyte title even.

    They had some fake Adobe update script on the page, took me a minute to get the page to stop before the script loaded so I could ban him!

    @Pinqvin

    Yeap, sounds like you need more QPI/Vtt. At 1600Mhz 1.35 is about the normal range, some need more some less but I would start with 1.35 and see how things go. It is fine, and you can use much more than that so don't worry

    If you still have mo luck, please give me the full settings you are trying and I will advise back

    Sooo I just tried setting the memory to the correct settings a bit with no luck. First I set all the multipliers correctly, then I set the DRAM voltage to 1,66V. After that I started at 1,355V QPI/Vtt. After every sudden reboot/freeze, I applied more QPI/Vtt voltage. At 1,435V however I started to think when will I be approaching the limit? How much higher can I safely go and is it normal that it would require so much QPI/Vtt voltage to run properly? Seems rather weird

    EDIT: Also should I do anything with the Performance Enhance setting or is it unrelevant?

    Leave performance enhance setting to standard for now since you are having issues. I also suggest you set IOH to 1.2-1.24 and then try again with your QPI/Vtt testing, are you getting any BSOD's or just freezes?

    QPI/Vtt notes on max voltages I made for someone not long ago >>

    No BSOD's, just freezes. Either the whole thing just freezes or does a sudden reboot. I'll start testing with the settings you suggested.

    Alright! Well if you continue to have issues please post your full settings again you are trying and we will have a look
