    BSODmakesmesad, while @axe0 is offline, I will try to assist you. first please complete your system specs including your motherboard, Hard Drives, power supply, CPU Cooler and anything else that may help us help you. These are the instructions I usually give.

    Please go to your last post and in the bottom left corner click 'My System Specs'. there is a link there to update your system specs, click it and fill them all out in as much detail as possible. Please list Manufacturer and Model, and list Desktop or Laptop. If it is an OEM, please list the Manufacturer and Model number. Please be sure to list your PSU and CPU cooler. If you would like to know what we would like, please click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post and see mine.

    Also, please make sure your system is set for small Memory Dumps Then go to C:/Windows and make sure you have a folder named Minidump. If you do not, please create one. We need the dump files to get a better idea of what is happening.

    If you are overclocking anything, please set everything back to defaults. Please use your preferred software to keep a close watch on both your CPU temps and GPU temps.

    If you would, please download and install CPUz and post screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory and SPD tabs. On the SPD tabs you can select each Dimm Slot from a dropdown in the upper left of the screen. Just post screenshots of the Dimm Slots that are populated with Ram.

    Ok. Updated as much as I could. It's a couple years old and survived a couple moves, so I don't remember all the pieces perfectly. Hopefully there's enough information.

    I have my settings for the memory dump set like they should be according to that post and the folder exists, but there's still nothing in there after 2 crashes. I am going to turn off automatic restarts next time just on the off chance it might be restarting before writing the dumpfile, but that seems like it shouldn't happen, so I don't know if that will help.

    As far as overclocking is concerned, nothing in the computer should be overclocked unless it was by the manufacturer. Should be totally vanilla as far as components are concerned.

    Here's the pictures.

    Thanks for your help so far :)

    Everything I see looks fine. I may suggest on your Ram in BIOS, you are set at the correct timings but the command rate (CR) is 1T, which may be within specs. But, I would change it to 2T. 2T is usually more stable than 1T.

    If you have any Gigabyte Utilities installed, please uninstall all of them. You also are running the first BIOS that the board was released with (F3). If you will go to your motherboard's web site (GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-Z68XP-UD3-iSSD (rev. 1.0), under Downloads and CPU Support list, it says you should be running bios version F10. If you update the BIOS, be sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully. A bad BIOS flash can damage your motherboard. Also, make sure that is your motherboard the link goes to.

    I'll try both of those things, and if a memory dump actually dumps one of these times I'll be sure to post it.

    Tiny update.

    I found this last night, and it seems like it might explain my problem. Not certain yet, but I'm going to try it later. It would at least explain why crashes seemed to randomly start out of nowhere and it might explain why crash logs aren't writing if the hard drive I'm trying to write the crash log to is shutting down randomly.

    Haven't updated the firmware yet, but I'll do that later tonight and post back.

    So tentative good news. Updated SSD firmware last night, and it did not crash for the remainder of the night over 3 hours, which is a decent bit longer than it usually lasts. I'll wait till this weekend when I can get some really long duration testing before putting this to bed, but I'm very optimistic so far :3
