    I got another BSOD while doing Video Editing just now -"Memory Management" I have attached system information, Minidump files and link to my Gdrive for Kernel dump file for your analysis

    3. MEMORY.7z - Google Drive

    Please note that I have upgraded to new PSU as mentioned above, also I have reinstalled second GPU in SLI mode, yesterday I did an hour of gaming (with intense graphics) in 1440p (in SLI) without any errors/BSOD.

    But I have disabled SLI from Nvidia Control Panel while I am not gaming (like for video rendering I always disable SLI from Nvidia Control Panel)

    Please advise/Help

    Thank you

    Your current installation isn't a clean install?
    Is your current installation a clean install?

    Yes, when I changed my motherboard, RAM and CPU (basically upgraded to Skylake Platform from old platform), I had installed windows cleanly with brand new SSD

    Hi, I could download only one of the VRAM tests, which did not run completely ! do you have any other program suggestions?

    I got another BAD POOL HEADER BSOD while I left my PC to render videos overnight ! I will send you minidump files today evening or in afternoon

    meanwhile I have come across ASUS ROG Forums (my motherboard) that RAM version which is Corsair LPX is for X99 motherboard platforms and not Z170 socket, They are suggesting I should get another brand of RAM which is G Skill Trident Z version. unfortunately my return period on amazon ended two days ago while I have emailed Corsair tech team if they can confirm this fact about compatibility for their RAM with ASUS ROG Z170 motherboards

    What do you think?

    Unfortunately not, the tests I linked in my last post are extra tests which I very rarely suggest.

    What do you think?
    What I think is, lets hear what Corsair has to say about it.
    I usually don't check compatibility unless I have a feeling there is something that might cause problems, mainly for example when something new has recently been installed.

    Yeah, I will update you once I hear from them. I did raised same question on Amazon from where I bought this RAM sticks, and someone answered positively about its compatibility with my motherboard

    Anyway, I really feel that there is some issue with SLI or Graphics card slot or new GPU (deference 980ti) or may be my rendering software ! I went home for lunch and restarting rendering with CPU only hope that it will completes it and also my software didn't allow me for hardware encoding/option greyed out. I have not got any errors while gaming even with SLI and in overclocked ! but I will do gaming again today in SLI and see if I get another error .....

    Corsair confirmed that LPX version which I have is fine with my motherboard

    also, I think I have found the problem : CyberLink PowerDIrector 14 video editing and rendering software seems to have issues when I enable Hardware video encoding while rendering videos. It crashes with BSOD when video rendering is about 95%, but I render with CPU only, there are no such errors and rendering completes it just fine

    I have attached minidump file for your analysis, please advise whether I should contact software tech support or its due to one of my GPUs (or SLI)

    Many thanks

    Difficult to say for me, the crash is a 0x12B and it doesn't reveal very much.

    I mentioned
    It is possible that either of them could be faulty (or their slots), but to find that out you would need to remove 1 of them and test in the slots.
    Is there anything done with this?
