    Your issue sounds like corrupted video memory. You can test it for free using passmark bit trial. Just uncheck all the other tests or it will be loud, slow and annoying. It has a CPU test as well if you're in to that sort of thing. If you have a dedicated gaming card the CPU is hardly used for most real 3D games like you're playing.

    How old is this unit?

    What graphics card do you have?

    I'd also look inside the system for bad caps if it's easily accessible. Strange voltages being sent can also cause these issues which is what bad caps will do. Just look on your motherboard, the video card and shine through the fan hole of your power supply. If you see any swelling then you need to either replace the caps or the unit that they've gone bad in.

    I have had IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN error with a bad core 2 quad ex ONCE. It had a single bad core. The other times it has been a bad add in graphics card or bad shared video memory. This does not mean it IS one of these two issues. Those are just my experiences.

    Hey thanks for following up. I ran through all sorts of tests and didn't get any errors. A friend came over and we turned everything off in the BIOS that we could and the IRQL errors went away. Turned back on audio and USB and it's still stable. I haven't received another IRQL error yet, but I am getting memory management errors so I'm running tests with different memory, etc. Going through the motions with everything suggested so far. I think my next step will be to replace the mobo if I can't stop getting BSODs.

    What tests are you running for the memory?

    'different memory' you mean what exactly with this?

    I'm going back to run memtest86+ with a couple of sticks of memory my friend has as we built our machines at the same time, he just went with a different brand. Like it was said earlier, probably not memory but this is just a double check, all things point to the motherboard I think.

    It is never smart to use different model/make memory sticks in a computer as it'll cause crashes.

    Yeah, I have 16 gigs of memory on 4 sticks. I am pretty sure I can take those 4 sticks out, put in 2 sticks of another make, and the computer will still run.

    I am pretty sure your system will crash if you do, not immediately though but it will eventually.
