Hello, im a new member but have heard very good things about this community so decided to seek help with a problem ive been having with my new pc setup here.. the pc is built with following pieces:

Asus P7P55D
Intel i7 860 2.8 LG1156
8gb (4x2gb) Corsair XMS3 CMX8GX3M4A1333C9 PC1333 9-9-9-24 @ 1.50v
Asus Geforce ENGTX285 1GB
Western Digital Caviar Green 1 TB SATAII
Itek 700W Power supply(dont know any more info on this one, sorry)

Our problem consists of blue screens when playing games, mainly Runes of Magic, altho im pretty confident its not the game being the problem here.
BSOD accurs randomly into gaming, can be 5 minutes or even a hours time after.. the blue screen pops up and pc restarts
Ive got the minidumps saved, hoping they could be of some assistance to you guys, cause I cant get much info out of them myself (not a Hardware expert, at all..)
Any assistance or advice at all, would be much appreciated, cause im lost for ideas here.

Download, and install SpeedFan: http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php
Post your computer temperatures:

Provide processor info (hold Windows logo key, and hit Pause/Break key to find out).

Post two sets of readings, one when computer idle and another one, when playing a game.

The processor info method you posted didnt really give any info, so I downloaded Cpu-Z and took a screenshot of that, hope its what you needed.

Temp of CPU on idle is around 35C with no applications running, GPU around 42-45.
When playing games they both rise roughly 10c but no higher then that -
Cpu has a Corsair Hydro H50 cooler on it btw, is not a stock cooler.

Next suspect: RAM

A. If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-....iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-....iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

Posted Image

8. Locate memtest86+-....iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

Posted Image

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:


Posted Image

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the ôerrorsö line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

I'll burn the memtest86 and give them a go later, got 4 memory sticks installed so will take a while to test them all with at least 7 passes, but i'll get back with results as soon as possible.

I was also facing the same problem. Follow the given steps to get rid out of it:
1) Use Microsoft Windows Update, check all critical and look in Optional for driver updates. Reboot.
2) Go to the manufacturer's website and see if they provide Windows 7 drivers. Update everything unless you specifically remember updating that driver with the Windows Update program.
3) If your manufacturer does not offer Windows 7 drivers, there are a couple tricks. You can either google the name of the computer and look for people who have released Windows 7 drivers; visit each component manufacturer's website (nvidia, intel, broadcom etc.) individually and download the drivers for your device; or use your manufacturer's windows 7 drivers.

Memtest came up without errors on all the sticks and windows updates was already fully updated, and every other driver aswell.
I've found out the corsair memory sticks arent in the QVL list for the Asus motherboard, could this be what is causing the problem maybe?

That's why I asked you to start with running your computer on one RAM stick at a time, not for running memtest on them.

Sorry I forgot to add that in my previous post, when I ran the memtest one stick at a time, I also tested few games with one memory stick at a time and still had the blue screens.

Do BSODs happen with games only?
Are those on-line games, or any games?

They seem to happen with games only, but dont have much other things to test with, its a pc built mainly for gaming anyways - are there other things to test with, such as benchmark?
We've tried with both online (mostly Runes of magic) and offline aswell (quake3/call of duty) and either of them makes the BSOD pop up.
