    Lots of BSODs after 2 weeks, same after clean install, Skylake 6700K

    I need help !

    Trying to figure out whats wrong with my skylake build. First had an MSI M5 board in it but after a stream of BSODs
    I replaced it with an Asus Pro Gaming board and made a clean install. Everything was fine again.

    Now 2 weeks later (after being regulary used) it suddenly started BSOD again. Could barely get it running long enough to run the util to gather the information.

    It's a clean install with just latest Win10 Pro, Latest chipset and drivers for network and graphics (not gforce experiance), Razer Synapse, Mumble and WoW, was playing in a raid yesterday and was fine. Thought it was worked out with the re-install. But no...

    Previously ran memtest for a whole day with no errors but I will again, it was a on the MSI motherboard.

    Logs contain 4 latest bsods of various messages but I think I've gotten them all by now. Most common are the

    Just now writing this on other computer the skylake running just fine again...can't explain, guess it comes and goes.

    Please help.


    Edit: Just passed thru a night of memtest86 using all cores on cpu. Does that mean the cpu and memory is fine ? What else, maybe swap out graphics card and test... Can a bad graphics card cause KMODE errors ?

    Hi Gnurken,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    If you are overclocking anything, revert back to stock while troubleshooting as overclocking might cause instability.
    CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz"
    MaxSpeed:     4000

    The Intel Ethernet connection driver has been flagged.
    Please check Intel for driver updates.

    Just to make sure the memory is not causing any trouble, please run MemTest86+

    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Thanks for taking time to check the logs.

    I've not intended to overclock anything. First thing I did when encounted bsod's was revert to bios defaults. These logs are after that. So far haven't tried to max out the cpu with changing the multiplier, got into issues before everything was installed so. What could cause the reading to be 4008 ? rounding error somewhere ? I'll check when I get home to make sure the base clock is not changed. CPU is idling below 30 celsius and hovering around 40-50 when gaming.

    The graphics card is factory overclocked, Haven't touched it in Afterburner, saw no reason. Just checked the temps and they were mostly in mid 50's during playing GTA-V.

    Network driver is the latest from Asus support page, I'll try the Intel download center instead.

    Will also try swapping to the graphics with a 980 from my other computer just to see if it's the graphics card.

    Memtest been run, no issues found, Asus posted a new bios version yesterday and I will try that. Just don't wanna change too much at once. Want to be able to zero in on the problem.

    Have been away with work a couple days and today I've been testing the computer. Tuesday I looked over what was set in bios just to make sure I didn't had fiddled with baseclock. But 4008 with a 40 multiplier is just 100.2 MHz and there isn't that kind of precision.

    However I was in there and noticed that Tweak AI was on "auto", think it's like that by default, and whatever else it does to "optimize" seems to been a cause since I've yet to get a bsod after turning it off and setting baseclock and memory frequenzies instead of auto.

    I still doesn't trust the system to keep working but I will do a re-install again since this one is kinda botched with getting bsod during driver installs and see how it goes. If something comes back I'll ask for help again.

    Marking this as solved for now,

    Thanks again !
