    Hi all, I am a newbe here so be gentle.
    I build lots of systems for friends but the latest one is completly weired.
    So the system
    Asus M4A785-TD-V-Evo
    memory 2GB DDR3 Corsair 1333 ( CM3X1024-1333C9)
    On board graphics or HD 6950
    CPU AMD Phenom II X4 B45 Processor (Deneb) 3000GHz
    Disk Western Digital Model WDC WD740GD-00FLA2 74.3 GB
    Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

    BSOD lots of these
    so I tried changing them one at a time ( resulting in me buying virtually a new system )
    System still unstable.
    sent mobo back, but returned with no fault found. In desperation I bought another board , ( stupid I know) . Same issues.
    After a year I bought an MSI board with no issues. But I still want to do something with what I have , I am sure its in the bios somewhere.
    Have contacted Asus ( ha Ha ) no help
    Have contacted XFX , more helpful, but cannot see problem.
    The only consistant fault seems to be if I run passmark. It comes up with an error to initialize directX.
    The other thing is I am running memory at 1.7V
    I have also tried the following memory
    Memory Timings 9-9-9-24 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS)
    G.Skill DDR3 F3-12800CL9-2GBXL 4GB
    Can anyone advise on what to try to do ?
    You will go top of the xmas card list :toast:
