I recently put together this build:
Asus p8z68 V Pro
8gb crucial ram
1tb hitachi Sata drive
antec water cooler
My problem is specifically related to severe under performance in prime 95: which appears to fail immediately after starting. Add to that a rather poor mark in 3d mark11. Anytime i try to change a setting in the bios I get a BSOD. If I try to use turbo mode in the included ASUS software I get bsod. I updated the original bios but still no change. I ran checkdisk just to make sure the hdd was good, it passed. I also recently ran memtest86 and my memory passed everything except test 7 the block test.
Is this one failure enough to lead to all my problems?
The only other thought I had is that it could be that my powersupply is too low. Its 600 watts. Is that too low for my system? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as I am getting very frustrated
