    Default GA-P55-UD3 random BSODing

    Hi, yeah i have this problem which is starting to get right up my nerves.
    A few months back i decided to build my own pc, which i did and was happy at the outcome then something strange happened the pc started bsoding on me randomly. I thought wat the hell..? Basically my pc would bsod restart then bsod again restart then bsod again then restart then work without any problems. I thought this is weird. After updating the bios with each new iteration (now on F7) the problem is still there. It happens without fail every day. So i thought it must be the ram (G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL8D) so i memtest86+ them. Leave memtest to run overnight about 12 hours and presto there 14 errors. So RMA the ram back to the vendor describing said problem. They test ram and tell me there is nothing wrong with ram as they tested it with memtest86+ and showed no errors after 6 passes. I argued all wanted but they refused to hear my problem and shipped me my ram back saying that problem i have is probably the memory controller on motherboard. So guys I need ur help. What do I do. Is it the ram or has the motherboard memory controller gone?

    As an aside i thought to include a few other things which i did not add before, mainly that i tried running the ram with xmp profile, voltages still the same prob. Apart from one time when i upped the dram voltage to 1.85 and system ran stable without bsod for 2-3 weeks then again the problem reared its ugly head. Also 2gb stick alone works but when using 2 * 2gb sticks it bsods.

    My Sys specs are as follows:
    Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3 rev 1.0 Bios F7
    G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL8D 4gb @9-9-9-24 2T
    Intel Core i5 750
    Be Quiet Straight Power 650w PSU
    XFX ATI Radeon 4870 1gb Catalyst 10.2
    So any and all help much appreciated.

    what voltage is your ram rated at? set it to that no higher,and set command rate to 1T,tell me your cpu voltage and qpi voltage..also set system performance enhance to standard.......try with 1.250000 qpi voltage dont leave on auto it will overvolt it,need your current cpu v also

    Hi, yeah well i did what u said and changed the qpi voltage to 1.250000 but sadly no luck there.

    Ill give u my cpu volt and other volts which im using:

    CPU Vcore 1.30000V
    QPI/VTT Voltage 1.250000V
    PCH Core 1.050V
    CPU PLL 1.800V
    DRAM Voltage 1.500V
    DRAM Termination 0.750V
    Ch-A Data VRef. 0.750V
    Ch-B Data VRef. 0.750V
    Ch-A Address VRef. 0.750V
    Ch-B Address VRef. 0.750V

    I hope that helps

    When cpu is idle the cpu volt is 0.848

    is there a normal setting for cpu voltage on your board? ifso set it to that,try with 1.30000 qpi voltage and see if it stops blue screening,you can try with 1.250000 qpi v and dram v at 1.66 first tho

    hi warren, yeah tried wat u said about upping my dram v to 1.66 and qpi to 1.250000 still no luck. This time my system booted into desktop let me surf web for about 5 mins before BSODing. I've let the cpu vcore stay at 1.300.

    Interesting thing ive jus found out. I dont know if it is important or just nothing but when i was surfing web for related issues to my problem i came acroos alot of people experiencing something called cold boot problems. This seems to be happening to me. I heard one work around rather than a full solution was to let PC boot up, when PC BSODs turn off PC from the switch on the back of PC on PSU wait a minute than turn on PC. Well I tried this and it seems to be working (for now). So make of that wat u will. I hoped that helps somewhat for finding a solution

    if its cold boot problems then its usually your ram,try switching to another brand if you can

    thats wat i thought the ram. but stupid overclockers uk and their stupid rma told me their were no errors on my ram. I need to get my ram tested independantly so i can get trading standards on their backside. But where i live no computer shop worth their name even pc world, dont do ddr3 ram testing. So if u know of any shops in the london area that do testing i would be happy to go there.

    cheers.
