    3-4 BSOD every day since mobo upgrade


    Hi everyone.
    I was happily using Windows 7 with a Sandy Bridge mobo/CPU and everything was pretty stable.

    I decided to upgrade to a Haswell mobo/CPU (Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H + Intel Core i5 4670K) and since, my setup has been very unstable.

    I've reinstalled Windows 7 and I had a lot of BSOD.

    I've since installed a fresh copy of Windows 8 Pro and it hasn't been better.

    I've ran MemTest and Windows Memory Diagnostic, but found no errors. (Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 Vengeance 16GB 4X4GB)

    Using WhoCrashed, I've noticed that the culprit seems to be : ntkrnlmp.exe
    The error is often : IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    Sometimes it's : MEMORY_MANAGEMENT or BAD_POOL_HEADER

    Now I'm trying without my discrete GPU (PowerColor AX6850 1GBD5-DH Radeon HD 6850)... I'll update on my situation.

    Also, I've been having problems with USB3... but that has been well documented already...

    Thanks for reading and helping.

    Sometimes a 4x4 memory confiuration requires a slight voltage increase due to the combined 4 module power drain. However, before I would even think about doing that, since your error messages point to (possibly) a memory issue, I would recommend that you try running with just two modules to see if that fixes your errors. If not, I would remove the first two and try the second two. Good luck.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I'll let you know how it goes after my GPU test.

    Well... after an uptime of an hour, my system crashed. So I can rule out the GPU being the problem.

    It's time to set my RAM modules...

    If you have any ideas, please let me know !

    Thanks.

    After 50 minutes, my system crashed again, this time, with 2 RAM modules in slot 1-2.

    I'll try with the 2 other RAM modules in slot 1-2.

    Try to run your system in safemode with networking, if it stays stable then we need to look at your drivers and/or software.

    If its not stable then we should look at hardware..

    Also, if you are doing any overclocking, you might want to abandon those settings to test for stability at default settings.

    Nah, I don't overclock. The system is powerful enough like that... especially for my needs.
