    Axe0,

    I deleted the realtemp program.

    Since some time before the start of the bluescreens I have a new keyboard (Corsair strafe). So as a test I removed the Corsair utility engine software and the driver and disconnected the keyboard from my computer. I also moved my keyboard and mouse from USB3.0 to USB2.0 ports.
    But six hours later I've had another bluescreen. This time related to Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology driver, so I removed that driver aswell (since I don't use it anyway as far as I know)

    Then a couple of hours later I had another bluescreen, this time related to atikmpag.sys, so I unistalled my AMD graphic drivers and ran DDU in safe mode. Afterwards I only reinstalled the display driver (not the AMD settings and other stuff).

    Still I've had a bluescreen after that. The frequency of bluescreen seems to be less (approximately one every 3 hours, but still something is causing BSODs)

    Kind regards,

    Please try to reseat the GPU or seat the GPU into a different slot.

    Hi axe0,

    I have reseated the GPU and still got bluescreens. Windows update also installed some amd hdmi sound driver and I think that caused a bluescreen aswell. I ran DDU and reinstalled the latest AMD driver (16.8.2).

    I also got rid of the Linksys USB wifi stick (because I thought that was causing the problems), but today I had another bluescreen

    I'm beginning to run out of ideas, hope you can help.

    Is XMP in the BIOS enabled?

    The specs of your memory states that the SPD (standard) is 1333MHz where with XMP enabled it is 1600MHz, hence why I asked :)

    I assume you're not overclocking anything else, CPU, GPU?

    Please fill in your system specs
    Please follow this tutorial and download the tool. The tool will give you detailed information about your system specs, please fill in your system specs more completely including PSU, cooling and other used stuff like mouse, keyboard, monitor, case, etc.
    The PSU, cooling and other stuff are NOT mentioned in the tool.

    Hi axe0,

    I've updated my system specs.

    Are you sure about the memory? Because on the box it says 1600mhz

    Attachment 98363

    My CPU (4,3ghz, 1,255 volt, adaptive voltage) and GPU (core: 1100hmz, 1575 memory) are overclocked since I've had this PC from december 2013, had no problems with it till couple of weeks ago.
    Also maybe important to mention is that some weeks ago I've upgraded my RAM from 8gb to 16gb.
    I can try without the overclocking to see if bsod's still exist, but that would be strange since my pc is running like this for almost 3 years.

    Kind regards,
    Jens

    It's what the Corsair says in the tech specs.
    Vengeance® Low Profile — 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit (CML8GX3M2A1600C9)


    Overclocking is a common cause with BSODs.
    I could ask, why wouldn't overclocking be the cause? That you ran your system 3 years with the overclock may only confirm that your system cannot handle the overclock anymore. In a matter of time the system's performance is going backwards, overclocking shortens the timespan of the part and ultimately causes problems.

    Setting the RAM to 1333mhz seems to have solved the problem. With 2 DIMMs set at 1600mhz, it was working fine for 3 years, but with 4DIMMs it caused random bluescreens.
    I'll wait a week and if no bluescreens happen, i'll mark the thread as solved.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction axe0!
