    Default GA-EX58-UD3R and OCZ GOLD 1600MHz BSODs

    I recently purchased a new gaming rig and have been pretty happy with my purchase. But then I noticed that at random intervals my computer does a BSOD. The weird thing about them is that they almost never happen when I'm stressing the system (that's why I thought my system was rock solid when I had no problems running intel burn test at maximum or stuff like that) So yeah, about the system:

    CPU = Intel Core i7 920 @ 2,66GHz
    Motherboard = GA-EX58-UD3R REV 1.6
    BIOS Version = FD1
    Ram = OCZ GOLD 1600MHz 3x2GB kit, OCZ3G1600LV6GK

    Anyway, I've recently ran a memtest and did 11 passes without any errors, so I'm not quite sure what's causing the random BSODs. BIOS seems to report my memory speed as 1066MHz, so I guess I'd have to make the changes myself to run them at stock speeds? I haven't really tried anything yet since I'd rather have this running properly at the current speeds before I start changing them. I haven't touched any CPU or RAM related BIOS settings, only the ones related to boot priority and such.

    After the memtest turned out clean I'm all out of ideas so help would be appreciated!

    Here is a link to your ram voltage and timings. BSODs usually result from malfunctioning Windows device drivers. So first check your drivers, or update your drivers.

    I already know the correct timings for my memory. I'm running Windows 7 so there's really no chipset drivers yet released for it and I haven't installed anything else besides Catalyst drivers for my GPU (HD4890). I've already reinstalled Windows just to see if it was just a faulty installation but that doesn't seem to be the case.

    Also I recently tried to use the correct timings but I was unable to get past the login screen before the computer rebooted by itself. My BIOS doesn't have the option for 1,65 so I tried both 1,64 and 1,66 but neither seemed to really work.

    I have been using the Windows 7 x64 Ultimate RTM for a few weeks since it was released and have had no bluescreens whatsoever. the microsoft drivers work fine and all benchmarks relatively the same between it and vista x64 ultimate. If you haven't your should definently install Intel INF Driver 9.1.1.1015 WHQL so these drivers are properly tweaked to the latest specifications from intel. Otherwise I'd say it's still either the memory or your gpu drivers. If your BSODing due to memory issues your windows install can get corrupted enough that you BSOD all time and would need a clean install.

    If you need help setting up your ram let us know, yes you do have to manually adjust several things to run 1600Mhz

    Help would be appreciated, I know how to set the timings but I guess the voltages are a little bit difficult to get spot on. But I'd first like to wait a few days and see if any more BSODs happen. Though I doubt the chipset drivers will make any difference on if it BSODs or not.

    If it still does, what could be the cause? Faulty memory or just my memory not liking the settings it's currently at (which I find highly unlikely)? But if the memory is faulty why didn't it show up on memtest? I just used the one from here and ran it on default settings so maybe that is the reason the memtest didn't find anything? Oh well, I'll just have to wait and see.

    Ya, it can be tricky finding the right voltages for everything. Ok, well post back in a few days and let us know how things go. If you do need advice on settings then we can help

    BSOD can be caused by many things, drivers, programs, settings, voltages, faulty hardware, ect.

    The Code helps a lot, if you see any of these three then the descriptions are most likely the cause >>
    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage

    How long did you run Memtest86+? Should be 5-10 full passes or overnight if you can to be sure.

    I ran it overnight and it had done 11 passes by then, no errors. I'll just wait for the next BSOD and analyze the dump to see if any of those codes are present

    That code would be present on the BSOD Screen, not sure if you would see it in the logs/dumps? Maybe though, I never checked and can't remember if those provide the same as what the screens show

    Just woke up to another bluescreen:

    BAD_POOL_CALLER (c2)
    The current thread is making a bad pool request. Typically this is at a bad IRQL level or double freeing the same allocation, etc.

    Didn't have any of the codes you mentioned, the one it had was 0X000000C2. Heh, actually got another one of these while typing this message and trying to debug the dump. The debug information still seems to be blaming the drivers, but doesn't actually pinpoint any specific driver (it's just blaming different windows modules) so I really have no idea what's going on
