Wow, looks like my DRAM timing control values weren't changed properly when I thought I had? Am I reading the speccy snapshot correct?
Now the RAM frequency and timings are correct but CPU might be running overclocked. Now one more thing to check. Please enter BIOS setup and navigate to the "OC Tweaker screen". Make sure OC mode is set to "Manual" . Also set "CPU Configuration--> Overclock mode" to "Auto".
Those are the default settings "Asrock" recommends.
Hey, yep checked those and they were already in the configuration you mentioned
Now the hardware part is running fine tuned. Can you upload the latest crash dump file ? . Let us check whether there is any incompatible drivers in the system.
Some drivers seems to be outdated. Please follow the below steps to update them (before updating the drivers, make sure to uninstall the old versions completely and reboot the system).
1. Realtek Audio driver.
Download 64bits Vista, Windows7, Windows8, Windows8.1 Driver only (Executable file) from the below link.Code:MBfilt64.sys Fri Jul 31 09:10:32 2009 (4A7267B0) Realtek HiDefinition Audio driver
2. Realtek LAN driver.
Download Win8 and Win8.1 Auto Installation Program (SID:1606893) from the below link.Code:Rt64win7.sys Thu Apr 21 23:45:33 2011 (4DB07445) Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC
3. Etron USB 3.0 driver.
Get the update from http://126.96.36.199/downloadsite/dri...B3(v0.118).zipCode:EtronXHCI.sys Fri Jul 20 12:45:46 2012 (500905A2) Etron USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller Driver
4. Make sure "AMD overdrive" is disabled.
"Overdrive" is a feature used to automatically overclock the CPU and GPU. Make sure it is not activated in "Catalyst Control Center --> Performance --> AMD Overdrive" (usual location). If it is selected by default, deselect it and reboot the machine.
'Security Processor Loader Driver" is still showing as a problem device.
To view this device, first boot the system in to "Safe mode " and enable hidden device view.Code:Security Processor Loader Driver ROOT\LEGACY_SPLDR\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.
Show hidden and unplugged devices in device manager - The IT Community
Check whether this item located under "Non plug and play devices". If yes, right click uninstall and reboot the machine.
Trying to update to the latest realtek audio driver has been a problem as during the setup it says "no driver was supported in this package"
i installed the previous driver which (R2.72) which was released only a month prior to the latest one, and that worked.
I've changed/checked everything else
Still get the hang/BSOD, as usual the installation of a windows update consistency causes it.
Just had a hang in safemode while trying to get the minidump files
