    My CPU-Z is 1.74.0 (latest is 1.77.0). So, it's not that old I think.

    I think OCCT comes with built-in CPU-Z perhaps, and the version I downloaded (3.1.0) may be using an older one? I need 3.1.0 because the latest one doesn't seem to have memtest support, and 3.1.0 is the last one that does.

    I'm guessing that's what happened there.

    The driver mentioned is from 2008, thats old.

    Testing the VRAM is possible with Furmark.


    Diagnostic test

     GPU TEST


    Run Furmark to test your GPU. Furmark tutorial

    Note   Note
    Run Furmark for around 30 minutes


    warning   Warning
    Your GPU temperatures will rise quickly while Furmark is running. Keep a keen eye on them and abort the test if temperatures rise too high

    When finished, make a photo/screenshot of Furmark and post it.

    In Furmark you can find a tool called 'GPU-Z' (if you want to install GPU-Z is up to you), when GPU-Z is open click on the 'Sensors' tab, on this tab you can monitor
    • the frequency of the GPU,
    • the GPU memory clock,
    • the temperature,
    • the power,
    • the load on the GPU,
    • Etc.

    I would like you to make a screenshot of GPU-Z after you have either cancelled Furmark for any reason or Furmark is finished, post this screenshot in your next reply with the result of Furmark.

    I'll do a Furmark GPU test, then I'll do the RAM test probably tomorrow or the day after.

    Indeed, the driver is old but it's not the installed CPU-Z. Again, it must be from the CPU-Z that comes with OCCT (it's bundled I think, that's how you get CPU monitoring in the program). It's more obvious because it's in a folder called "cpuz131", and I never ever installed that version. At least, that's how I think it is.

    I mentioned that it's from CPU-Z earlier
    There are a few other programs that use these drivers, like speccy, hence why I added 'likely'.

    Updating the software should resolve the outdated driver issue.

    Ah, ok, got it. The thing is, I need that specific OCCT version to do GPU memtests. Already did 30 passes of it anyway, so I uninstalled it. 0 errors.

    As for Furmark, I've been running it with the same settings the tutorial suggested. I can't notice any artifacting or corruption similar to what I had in the video. Also, I started the test at the time I made my last post. So, it's been an hour and still nothing.

    Does that mean it's not VRAM then that causes the graphic corruption I linked? Or not sure yet? I need a better test for this, I suppose. It's not exactly BSOD related, but...

    Furmark is a fairly proper test. If VRAM would be the issue Furmark is a good test to identify it as a hardware problem is mostly identified by stress testing.
    If you'd want you could run Furmark for a few hours to see if that results in anything.

    Memtest86 is currently running. Not using the + version because it didn't boot. I guess it doesn't support uefi, the plus version.

    I set it to 20 passes, currently on second one. It seems to take around an hour or so for each pass.

    I'll probably stop it after 10 passes or so, should be enough right?

    That is correct, which is why BIOS settings need to be changed from UEFI to legacy (or whatever it is called)
    Also fast startup needs to be disabled to boot MemTest86+

    I didn't mention it, but I did switch to legacy. No go. Also messed with boot priorities and didn't help.

    Fast and secure boot are both turned off.

    Anyway, currently 3 passes in with no errors. Gonna mention again that I still didn't get another BSOD recently.

    It usually helps to load the default settings in the BIOS and then change the boot mode, odd enough though.
