    Constant BSOD While Gaming

    I have gotten the following BSOD's pretty consistently lately.


    I have been playing Rise of the Tomb Raider using mostly the settings suggested by GeForce Experience except for a few added settings like hair etc. When I can play, everything runs perfectly fine, no artifacts and nice smooth frame rates. The crashes usually occur after about 15-20 minutes of gameplay, but once I get a crash and try to load the game back up again, I usually only get a few minutes.

    I even recently got a crash playing Rocket League of all things.

    I played through Starcraft 2 Legacy of the Void without any issues.

    Fallout 4 would crash every now and then, but was better after they released an SLI profile for the game.

    I have the latest Nvidia Drivers as of today and they were installed after running DDU to clean out my old drivers and I installed the latest drivers clean. I am going to run a MemTest tonight and I will run an IntelBurnTest shortly to rule out those issues. I never have any issues except when gaming.

    EDIT: I was reading through some other posts and saw that someone wasnt on the lastest windows 10 build. Turns out I wasnt either. I have since run system update and am now on the latest Windows 10 build.

    Please remove the OC'ing, your motherboard supports it but for troubleshooting it is best to remove all OC'ing on your system.

    Let me know what the results of the tests are :) FYI I have added my post of MemTest86+ in a quote.

    Diagnostic Test


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

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 complete 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.

    If errors show up you can stop the test, remove all sticks but 1 and test this single stick in each slot for 8 passes or until errors show, switch sticks and repeat.
    If errors show up and you see them a lot later, no problem, the errors don't affect the test.

    Thanks for the response. My memory is rated for 2400 Mhz. I just activated an XMP profile to set it to its rated speed and did no other overclocking. I will run Memtest tonight with the OC still on and see if there is any issue. If it throws an error, I will deactivate the XMP profille and try again.

    My gut tells me my issues have something to do with SLI. I had no issues when i was just running one 770, but I have had nothing but issues since I added that second card. The second card is the exact same card as my original, so that shouldn't be an issue.

    I will post back with my Memtest findings in the morning.

    My Memtest just finished its 8th pass and no errors were detected. For some reason it wont let me attach the image

    Last night I also ran a few runs of x264 and everything looked fine, no crashed. I did 10 passes of that.

    I also ran the Heaven GPU stress test on max settings and it ran fine with no issues.

    I just selected one of the XMP profiles that were already available in the BIOS.

    Ok, but what is the current XMP setting?

    I attached an image of my BIOS showing the Memory settings. Let me know if you need to see deeper into something.

    I can do that. I will just turn the XMP profile to Disabled. What is the next step after that? Should I just try to play games like normal and see what happens? Just trying to get an idea of how we are going to troubleshoot next.
