Here are our recommendations for this issue:
- Test the system with minimum memory installed. Ensure you are using DDR3-1600 since DDR3-2100 is not supported by the processor memory controller.
- Ensure to have the latest BIOS version for your motherboard.
- Run the processor diagnostic tool to ensure the processor is working under specifications:
-If the issue persists and if you determine the processor is creating the issue at some point, replace it under warranty.
Tested 1-8gb stick (actually 3 different 8gb sticks). All had passed individual memtest 86 4.20.
Ran 24hr memtest on 64gb setup w/ no errors. Also 6 hr y-cruncher stress test no errors. (set a # of benchmarks while I was at it (AngryChief)
Ran y-cruncher stress test on 2 x 8gb Gskill ddr3-2133 @2133 also. No errors.
FYI: 1600, 1867, and 2133 are all XMP profiles in the bios and work flawlessly. Have been there since 525 bios. I have upgraded to 553 now.
I did notice that the canned x48 multiplier was dropped in the 553 bios. Worked great in the 525.
Processor diagnostics all normal. Run w/ both 64gb @ 1600 and 16gb @ 2133.
Do you have the Bios set to AHCI or Raid ?? I have a Raid5 array set up on the 600 chipset w/ 4-1TB drives so I have to set it to raid. Got real frustrated w/ the whole thing last week so I did a win7 x64 clean install using all the latest drivers from Intel. Got my 1st bluescreen 26 hours later: iastora.sys. Automatic reboot to normal. Next bluescreen was in 22 hours. Same iastora.sys. I've been rebooting about every 20 hrs since then Did a disk Cleanup last night and it erased the dump files or I would have attached them. I'm going to go ahead and let it bluescreen several more times so I've got some dump files to post. For what it's worth, the one driver error that has been common to ALL dump files both before and after the clean install was ntoskrnl.exe.
Above is a link to the latest minidump file. It's at the bottom of the page. In the post above, I said it was iastora.sys. My error. The 3 BS's since the clean install were storeport.sys.
I have the Bios set to AHCI. If I use IRSTe (188.8.131.529), I get the "1048 by Storport.sys" error every 7-7 1/2 hrs.
I'm referring to the contents of the memory dump by using the following software.
