Bsod cmz16gx3m4a1600c9 16gb ddr3 sdram


Recommended Posts

Hi all I'm getting weekly BSODs [memory managmen, PFN List]. I'll make it quick. Specs to follow.


Needed a new system. Ordered a new one and kept some parts from the old system (Case, 2 Video cards, PSU and a hard Drive)


Brought it home everything was fine. 2 weeks later BSOD every half hour. Ran MemTest. Failed after 2 minutes. Brought the desktop back to the store. Tech guys found nothing wrong after 2 days. Puzzled I asked if they ran Memtest. They said yes and the memory passed running the PC over night.


Took the computer home ran Memtest and sure as rain it passed. Week later the BSODs came back. I tested every stick individually... passed.


But I noticed something. When I got the BSOD and the system restarted I immediately ran MemTest. The Ram Failed.


However if I turned the power supply on and off then start up the computer MemTest passes and the computer works fine for about a week.


You see I never power down the computer fully I usually put it to sleep. Doing this causes the BSODs after a week or so.


The guy at the store suggested I have too much stuff hooked up to the computer. (3 monitors + a Wacom drawing screen and 2 video cards)


I ran the computer with 1 monitor and the same BSOD came up after a week.


Not sure what's going on here or what the symptom is telling me. Is it the RAM, PSU or Mobo?


The event manager in Windows 7 is error 41. Which means the Power was interpreted. Never got this on my old computer which is using the same PSU.


Also why would the RAM fail after a restart if the restart was caused by error 41?


I'm all for getting an new PSU if the PSU is the problem. It' is 4 years old. But I would be sorely pissed if I put a new PSU and still got the BSODs. So I just want to make sure.


Anyway here are my specs. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
