    I cannot say what it could possibly be, but my first suspicious would be settings from the GPU software.

    You mean from the Nvidia control panel? I havent touched that thing at all
    I think the only display fiddling ive done is installing flux which reduces the blue colors on my screen to make it easier on the eyes, but im fairly certain that the crashing have been occurring for longer than ive had flux installed.

    I mean the Nvidia control panel indeed, or Geforce Experience

    i thought that it was somewhat related to the BSOD issues. This is just where im seeing the problems, so i was hoping you could gather anything from it
    Just to let you know, unless it is something you have noticed that shows up before a BSOD occured it is not related to a BSOD.

    Its usually either or. Either it would crash or it would BSOD. Or it would crash a couple of times and then BSOD. I havent really seen any pattern to it - well other than the FPS limit ive mentioned.

    On a sidenote and just out of curiosity, what does the different BSODs ive mentioned in the original post mean to you? Do they point to something similar?

    From experience it means either of the following
    - A seriously messed up system, a messed up system in my eyes is a combination of the following

    • Scam programs (PUP's)
    • File system problems (disk corruption, system file corruption)
    • Messed up partitioning
    • Malware (depends mainly on the type of malware)

    To define 'combination', at least 2 but not all needs to be present.
    There are things that I could add to this list, but are not occuring to my mind a.t.m.
    - A hardware level problem
    - A very buggy driver, least occuring because a very buggy driver is a driver like SPTD.sys which is a driver known for serious stability issues with Windows

    Ive encountered one BSOD since last update, this time a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Ive tried disabling XMP profile through bios to see if that might help.

    Im a bit worried that its a hardware problem.

    I would recommend to update the BIOS

    A few weeks ago I too BSOD'd with the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message. That's a system driver crash and doesn't necessarily mean you have bad hardware, rather it could be a driver conflict or misconfigured settings of said driver.

    I fixed my issue by doing the following (pardon this if it reads like a caveman wrote it, I'm posting from mobile):

    • Audited and uninstalled programs I didn't use anymore in Add/Remove
    • Uninstalled ALL Nvidia software (note: I used to always use DDU, but I don't anymore nor do I recommend it. I think it's too aggressive and volatile for Windows 10. YMMV tho)
    • Reboot
    • Uninstalled my network LAN drivers
    • Reboot
    • Installed the latest Nvidia drivers with the Custom option and "clean" option checked. Deselect the 3D stuff and GeForce Experience (just the display driver, sound, PhysX) Note: you may not even need the sound driver depending on your configuration.
    • Reboot
    • Downloaded and installed the latest Chipset (.inf) drivers from my motherboard manufacturer's page
    • Reboot
    • Downloaded and installed the latest LAN/Network drivers from my motherboard manufacturer's page (For various reasons I suspect my lan drivers were the source of my BSOD, perhaps it's yours as well?)
    • Reboot

    Everything has worked great since. Should you try these steps, after you reboot that last time, play some games, run some benchmarks, perhaps run a stability test. If everything is hunky-dory, and you like GeForce Experience, go ahead and install it and reconfigure it*.

    *as aside note, if you have any custom Nvidia profile settings that you would like to preserve in between "clean" installs, you can export them with Nvidia Profile Inspector. After installing the latest drivers, you can then import those profiles with Nvidia Profile Inspector again. Highly recommended tool! If you would like me to expand on how to do this, let me know - can do later on my desktop.

    Good luck!
