BSOD every 1-3 days

  1. I upgraded my SSD drivers, BIOS and motherboard drivers on the same day and have started to get BSOD. It may be due to not putting all of the BIOS values back to how they were but I don't think I missed anything.

    I only get a couple of seconds to read the BSOD before it reboots, the main thing I see is the 0x00000f4 message. I can be doing anything when it happens, browsing the web or playing a game.

    I'm on the latest version of SSD, BIOS, motherboard drivers, ATI drivers, Intel AHCI etc.

    In the BIOS I change the DRAM to 7-7-7-24 with a voltage of 1.65.

    My specs are:

    Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
    cpu: i7-2600k
    ssd: OCZ 240GB Vertex 3 SSD 2.5" SATA-III 6Gb/s
    motherboard: Asus P8P67 R3 Socket 1155
    ram: 4GB kit (2GBx2), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 memory module
    3d card: HD4870 1GB ATI
    psu: ANTEC - 650W TruePower

    Thanks for any help!

    Are the SATA bios set to AHCI or RAID? Is the SSD running off a SATA 3 port?. The 5 minidumps all point to:

    It's set to AHCI and is on a 6Gb/s port.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yes the 6Gb/s port is SATA3... You say the BSOD started only after updating the firmware on the OCZ SSD? They are known to have a high failure rate. You may want to call OCZ support
