    Check system file integrity to assure it isn't Windows thinking there is a hardware issue. Would guess it could be a faulty iastor driver from Intel® Rapid Storage Technology :g:.

    sfc /scannow reported no integrity violations. Will update Intel Driver and report back soon.

    Thanks everyone for your help.

    Updated Rapid Storage drivers, same issue.

    Just tried Mister X's solution, will see how it goes.

    I'll keep everyone updated :)

    No sir, I don't feel the need to overclock so my multiplier stays as it is :)

    Disabling C-STATE has proved to work so far but I'm going to give it until the end of the day.

    Regards, David.

    EDIT: Apart from Turbo mode being enabled. But this is by default. I have disabled Turbo mode and enabled C-STATE again. Will see how the next few hours go. But still no crashes so far.

    Okay, been tweaking the BIOS. With Turbo Boost and C-STATE enabled, BSOD's happened and were random.

    Disabling either Turbo Mode or C-STATE the issue stopped completely. Maybe it's something to do with idle voltage? But my problem is now solved.

    Thanks everyone for their help. I will now play around with different C-STATES and see if I can have both enabled with no crashes.

    Regards, The Dev.

    I know tools and info such as provided by my2cents are invaluable for troubleshooting, nevertheless it's important to use information of an specific problem already addressed by someone on the net, to take advantage of their efforts, knowledge and spent time trying to solve issues, in this case that's what happened here when I posted the solution link which took me less than 5 min. to find it googling, this way people resolve issues fast. Analyzing the origin/cause of them, well, that's another story.

    @Mister X: You make a good point and you are absolutely correct about looking for others that have resolved the same issue. However, since a BSOD fix is usually more complexed than disabling or enabling a BIOS option, one could waste much time trying anything and everything. Please understand that I am happy for the OP and I am glad you easily found a solution by Googling. I'm also hoping the OP understands what disabling C-State does because his processor is designed to work with it enabled.

    In fact, since new technology, C-STATE is not a massive importance. In fact disabling it can solve high DCP spikes. I don't see an issue since all it does is drop the processor multiplier when the system is idle.

    Anyhow, C-STATE is now turned on for me - Instead I disabled Turbo Mode in the BIOS. No single blue screen since.

    Hi The Dev,

    It certainly is not important to me either, and as long as it is not important to you, then your problem is solved. However, given the fact that your mobo costs more than my entire rig and you have opted for a fantastic CPU as well, I would like to think that your combination should be able to run in the default BIOS mode (which is Turbo mode and C-State both enabled according to you). Moreover, since your mobo is considered a "high performance" board and it comes equipped with "overclock presets" (I believe), I would have to assume that the target audience would be those looking to maximize performance. However, if you are satisfied with you rig not being able to run in even the default turbo mode, then all is well and problem solved, but I (personally) would not be happy with a solution that defeats the purpose of the mobo's design intent.

    Also, since you never responded to my previous query regarding what components you actually added, I cannot venture any further guesses; however, I have to believe your specific issue is solvable beyond the point of turning off features that should work by design... especially with such a high-end mobo and CPU combination. Please understand that I am happy you are satisfied; however, I would not be if I paid that much money and something did not work correctly.

    Good luck to you.

    my2cents, you make a good point actually. it was rude of me not to acknowledge. I apologise.

    My full rig specs are as follows:

    MB: Asus Z87 Sabertooth: latest BIOS
    Processor: Intel Core i7 4770K - No OC
    Memory: Corsair XMS3 (16GB)
    Main drive: Samsung 830 SSD (128GB)
    Video: EVGA GTX 780 SC w/ ACX
    PSU: OCZ ZX 850

    When I upgraded I just replaced my Motherboard and Processor, previous components replaced were an Intel i5 2500K and an Asus P8P67 Pro rev 3.1. One thing I did not do is reinstall Windows, I let Windows 8.1 reconfigure itself as I have a lot installed and would take a while to set everything up again.

    Many people have suggested just disabling the low end idle (C1) and leaving the rest 'as is'. But then again, yes I paid a lot for development and gaming purposes and why should I have to disable Turbo Mode and/or C-STATE. You're right.

    I've tested the memory with Linux and Windows, no issues. I ran a processor benchmark, no issues. Looking inside the PC, no damage or bad caps. I even reseated the processor and added new thermal paste.

    I guess I could reinstall Windows and enable C-STATE and Turbo Mode to see what happens, else maybe get in touch with Overclockers UK. It does seem like a voltage issue.

    Yes my original issue was solved, but I'm still tweaking around to get my Computer stable with all options seems I paid a lot for options to not work.

    Regards, The Dev.
