3-4 BSOD every day since mobo upgrade

    Well... I still haven't run MemTest with a single RAM module, but since testing with the bare minimum, I can almost say with certainty that the culprit was my GPU... I've put back my HDDs and all my RAM and ran Prime95 and it all went well.

    What boggles me is that it worked just fine with my previous motherboard/CPU (Sandy Bridge + MSI Z68MA-G45 (B3))... no BSOD, artefacts, nothing. If you have any idea why, please chip in.

    I'll mark this post as solved in a few days when everything is really stable.

    I guess I can still give my GPU a try and remove Catalyst and run it with basic ATI drivers. If it crashes, I can finally know for sure... unless it's the PSU...

    I've put back my GPU and it took 2 hours to crash.

    I'll downgrade my AMD drivers.

    I still haven't downgraded my ATI drivers...

    My system crashed while I was performing a backup to a external USB3 HDD while using Genie Timeline.

    I then disconnected my GPU and retried to backup and it crashed again... so I can rule out the GPU. So, no downgrading for now. But I'm still connected to the onboard GPU.

    I uninstalled Genie Timeline and I'm trying FreeFileSync. It did crash once, but the Genie Timeline Service was still on.
    For now, without that service and that program, everything seems fine...

    The problem seems to be file transfers or the USB3 port.

    If it crashes again, I'll perform my backup using the USB2 port...

    After all, it wasn't Genie Timeline.

    It crashed during the backup with FreeFileSync. Can't rule out that program though, Google Chrome was running as well. The system crashed after reloading Chrome because the tabs were buggy.

    It crashed again. The backup was running through the USB2 port.

    I can rule those out.

    Hi !
    I just received my replacement RAM from Corsair. I'll test it now. I hope it solves my problem. I'll keep you posted.

    Thank you! I also write, if I can find a solution. My system has become more stable after the installation of the BIOS F4, but blue screen STILL appears

    My new RAM has fixed the problem so far... I've performed regular tasks and a backup and everything was fine.
    I still haven't put the GPU back. I'll do that today.

    I forgot to mention that before asking for a RMA for my RAM, one of the modules failed MemTest.

    I retested that one and passed. I even got the system to run with that module and everything was fine. I suspect that the modules didn't like to work together, although in my previous configuration (Sandy Bridge), everything was just fine.
