    Recent upgrade on motherboard and CPU, BSOD when under GPU load


    I recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU to a Gigabyte Z97 Gaming 5 motherboard and an Intel Xeon 1231 v3. I use a Nvidia GTX 660 GPU, and recently my FPS in-game has been stuttering. When I checked my GPU load, I noticed it kept on dipping below the threshold that the game would use. For example, if the maximum load the game took was 80%, every 10 seconds or so the load would dip down to 20%, causing a stutter. This makes the games I play virtually unplayable.

    I was playing Tera, and this game IS known for it's optimization issues, but I had no problems in the past running this game with my previous motherboard. I recently got a BSOD and I'm hoping that it could lead me somewhere good. If anything, I might just RMA my motherboard and call it defective.

    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

    Here is a more up-to-date scan of my system.

    The reason why there was a GTX+ 9800 was because I switched over to it for stability reasons.

    I have configured windows to create minidumps during crashes and I have uninstalled and reinstalled Nvidia drivers, clean installation, PhysX and Driver only. I have also updated my system specs a bit, but I'm not too sure what else you need from me.

    Thanks, I will test it to see if it works or not. Will get back to you within 24 hours.

    I also forgot to mention. There is a slight hum in my graphics card when it is under load. I believe it's the infamous coil whine.

    When I need something, I will ask for it :)

    You don't have to run the dm log collector when no crash has occured :)
    At least, there is no log of another bluescreen.

    Okay, so lately I haven't gotten a BSOD, but my graphics driver has been crashing. One time, major artifacting occurred and I had to completely restart my system.
