    Hi there, this the list above is my current PC.
    I have made multiple posts regarding my issues on reddit i've been having is the past few weeks looking for advice. [Post](Infrequent random bluescreens for a long period of time. : techsupport), [Post](Frequent BSOD I since found RAM Errors with previous RAM have now replaced it with new RAM but am having the same issues. : techsupport), [Post](Frequent BSOD I since found RAM Errors with previous RAM have now replaced it with new RAM but am having the same issues. Am at a loss of what to do. : buildapc), [Post](Build help, looking to possibly upgrade my PC. : buildapc)

    **Main issue**

    So for the Past 1.5 years with my current PC build I have been having intermittent to regular BSOD every day (although sometimes there would be days without a BSOD) In which there has been no apparent trigger.
    I happens just as often if I am watching youtube videos with nothing else open or in a game, nothing I have done and worked out what is causing the crash.

    Every BSOD will generally have a different error code. (Reference by pointer, Driver, overran stack buffer, Kernel stack locked at exit and more)

    I have uploaded a copy of my DxDiag here (------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this r - Pastebin.com)

    My original components were a


    • * (Asus MAXIMUS VIII RANGER) Motherboard
    • * (G.SKILL Ripjaws V DDR4 2400 C15 2x8GB) Ram
    • * (Corsair CX600) PSU




    **Steps I have tried**

    With previous RAM+Motherboard I tried lots of different BIOS settings, updated the bios, tried RAM in different slots and did lots of memory tests. Originally I used the in windows MemTest HCI as it was easier to use and it threw up errors with my RAM in every slot on the motherboard and in every configuration with different (less aggressive RAM timings). NOTE: I have never overclocked anything in my PC.
    And talking to someone via reddit over 50 posts ([Here](Infrequent random bluescreens for a long period of time. : techsupport)) We concluded ahh must be the RAM is faulty.
    I then purchased Corsair CMK16GX4M2A2666C16 Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) off Amazon and tried it again in the PC. The BSOD issue hadn't been fixed so I then ran a Memtest with MEMTEST86 on the USB and after 2 passes it gave no errors (So I assumed it wasn't the RAM anymore).

    So after more posting and back and forth on Reddit I then tried a few other things. I have seated and re thermal pasted the CPU even though I have never had issues with temperatures.
    So then with help of my next [post](Frequent BSOD I since found RAM Errors with previous RAM have now replaced it with new RAM but am having the same issues. Am at a loss of what to do. : buildapc)
    I've run sector scans on all my drives, I've tried running it on the internal graphics with the GPU removed from the machine and it still BSOD. I've done intels diagnostic program, I've used samsungs magician to check the SSD.

    It was suggested it was most likely to be the motherboard (with all the random BSOD messages if it isn't the RAM), so I bought a new motherboard (ASUS Prime Z270-P) and at the same time bought a new power supply incase it was due to a failing power supply. (Although am not as upset to have replaced this as upgraded to a gold rated modular instead of bronze non-modular)


    So after replacing the Motherboard and PSU with new ones, I was still having the BSOD.
    I then today have reinstalled Windows 10 from new and before I had any chance to install any other programs it blue screened same as before and has been doing the same later on with about 4-5 blue screens today already.

    I have got a link to a google drive folder with my most recent BSOD dumps from today incase they can shed any light on anything. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1js...QfNh-n0aoRmjJJ



    **What do I do now?**

    So basically am having a bit of a nightmare at the moment am trying to juggle studying for Uni whilst trying to diagnose my PC which works perfectly 90% of the time and runs as though there are no issues in games etc. However the 10% of the time where it keeps BSOD is frustrating me to no end have put up with it for 1.5 years and now that I have been replacing and spending lots of money (£260) and countless hours unbuilding and rebuilding my PC and reinstalling windows twice, running countless Memtests going into the BIOS for hours etc etc etc I am still nowhere closer to fixing the issue. If anything I am downgrading my PC with worse components (motherboard) in hope to fix it and then not getting anywhere. I can't really afford to keep buying new components which I can't easily afford on a PC I didn't even want to "upgrade", was hoping not to have to change any components for years as it runs the stuff I do so well.




    **What I'm looking for**

    Absolutely any advice you might be able to offer me, any help and comments are greatly appreciated sorry for the long post but all these issues have been driving me insane!

    I have attached the Beta DM log collector file here.
    Also here is a link to my google drive with dmp logs that date from 17th December to 6th Jan 2019 before I replaced my Motherboard + PSU

    Thanks a lot for any advice, MrNeski.

    Hello and welcome to TenForums

    To start the ball rolling I would suggest that it is vital to determine if this is a hardware or driver issue. To help resolve this can you run your system in safe mode for a period of a few hours to see if the BSOD occurs in that mode. If it does not occur we can be pretty sure it is a driver issue. If you need help accessing safe mode refer to: Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10

    One other thing you could do as a quick check is reduce the memory clock speed to 2133MHz as this would be more compatible with your processor recommended settings: https://ark.intel.com/products/88195...p-to-4-20-GHz-

    The mini and memory dump debugging so far displayed one software and one hardware driver in the crashes.

    As philc43 commented using the computer in safe mode can be useful in determining if there is a hardware problem.

    Your Intel RAID Controller is rather dated and definitely not-Windows 10 compatible - its driver is from 2011.

    11/04/2011 19:48:16 C:\Windows\system32\drivers\iaStorV.sys

    I would start with this.

    PRIME Z270-A Driver & Tools | Motherboards | ASUS USA


    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m...5_20171115.zip

    Or even this:

    Have tried running Prime95 Blend test and it has 2 rounding errors within seconds.

    I tried booting to safe mode and running Prime95 and it gave a round error in 2 seconds and 2 seconds later BSOD.

    I have downloaded and installed the Intel raid controller driver.

    Tried running prime95 in safe mode and it didn't crash this time. Will test with safemode with GPU disconnected to see if BSOD still happen.
