About very long ago, my pc started to random give me BSODs, at the time i had my Q6600 running @ 3GHz (380x8), oddly enough my CPU and RAM were totally stable without errors after 12 hrs of prime and memtest, so first thing i tried was upping voltages of the chipset on the mobo, then also upped the vcore, all with no avail...
I then realised the BSODs happened less frequently when i upped the RPM of the cpu fan, altough temperature wise nothing should have been wrong @ lower RPM...
But then after a while the higher RPM also didnt help anymore, and the BSODs started to show up again, i then decided to put the cpu back to stock frequency (2,4GHz 266x9), which seemed to get rid of the problem, my system has not showed any BSOD in the last few months, untill a few days ago...
Now i suddenly get bomdarded by BSODs again, all random, system can be stable for hours, only to later crash every other minute..
Now since my CPU and RAM still show up as stable in prime & memtest, i'm suspecting the Mobo or PSU, i noticed my 5v rail is a little on the low side, bitween 4.67v / 4.73v
Could this be the origin or the problem? i have my doubts cause of the randomness of the BSODs, if it was low on power shouldnt it instantly crash when i fire up a demaning game like Crysis? ..in games it crashes just as randomly as when browsing the web.
Plus, PSU is a Tagan Piperock 1100Watt which cost me like 250 bucks, not a cheap psu at all, but also expensive things are able to fail i guess..
So what do u guys think?
Thanks in advance.
