Windows 10: BSOD due to a Machine Check Error only when playing Overwatch.

  1.    04 Jun 2016 #1

    BSOD due to a Machine Check Error only when playing Overwatch.


    My system is overclocked but I ran a stress test with OCCT for ~24 hours when I first set it up and there were no issues.

    The crashes have only ever happened while playing Overwatch. They are definitely not heat related unless CAM is reading the temperature of my CPU cores incorrectly because none were over 70C at any point.

    The logs are attached. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I do not analyze these threads you would have to wait for one of our staff who does, but this is a new game have you installed that latest game ready drivers ?

    Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
    These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.

    Please remove all overclocking, overclocking is 1 of the main causes of the crashes you have.

    If other games that use 100% of the CPU and a 24 hour stress test don't result in the bluescreen doesn't that suggest it isn't related to the overclock?

    At the moment it doesn't really matter if the overclock is stable in other situations, what does matter is to remove the overclock until your system is 100% stable again. It is the first step of troubleshooting with hardware errors.

    The crashes 0x9C & 0x124 are both hardware crashes, the 0x124 is the 'new' version.
    Hardware crashes can occur due to faulty hardware, overheating, dust, BIOS problems, pushing hardware too far (overclocking), drivers, improper cooling, software, etc.,
