This computer is ~3 weeks old, and now crashing constantly. Specs are:
- CPU: i5 - 6600k
- RAM: 2x 8GB Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 2666
- MOB: ASRock Z170 Pro4
- GPU: EVGA GTX 970, SC (I think, I got it from a friend who upgraded)
I am now constantly (7+ times per full day) getting BSODs. Typically playing MGSV now results in a BSOD after ~15 minutes
of play, DotA 2 after ~20 minutes of play, and occasionally when compiling large chunks of code (like the Unreal Engine).
EDIT: To be specific, I believe that it was after the Unreal Engine finished compiling, it loaded, and was trying to compile some Shaders. I suspect this may therefore be due to the graphics driver? However I've updated it to the latest one...
Research has led me to believe it is probably RAM issues, driver issues or overclocking. Can you please help me figure it out?
To my memory, I have not begun overclocking this machine (although I imagine that I might have set it to default bios OC ~3% when I was building the rig?). I will test after I post this and edit.
EDIT: I have verified that I am not currently OC'ing at all (according to BIOS).
To test RAM issues, I have removed one stick at a time (remaining stick in 1st channel), and then booted, played MGSV until it crashed (both sticks) then re-inserted both sticks. I have also run a full RAM verify, before even installing Windows (using Ubuntu long service release live CD RAM test) and yesterday (full Windows RAM test, 7 cycles/15 before I got bored, 0 errors).
I haven't verified my drivers yet, that will happen after I check for OC'ing. (With a restore point, ofc.)
I am attaching a screenshot of my BlueScreenView application, and the debug dump as per BSOD posting instructions.
Hopefully this is an easy issue to fix and not my RAM. Thanks for the help!
