    The faulty stick may had affected things, but the 0x116 is usually not caused by faulty memory (unfortunately in this case)

    If you get 0x116 crashes again, my suggestion for now would be to try different driver versions, a minimum of 3 different driver versions would be the best.

    Using different Nvidia driver versions did not change anything. I'm still getting BSOD 0x116 from time to time, but today I experienced a new symptom! Weird video problem + crash. See screenshot.

    Try to use the GPU in another system if possible.

    The GPU died! So I went ahead and bought an Asus GTX 1080 Strix. And guess what, same symptoms!!! Intermittent black screen and crash with "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has sucessfully recevored" in the event viewer.

    Now I'm panicking a little bit and wondering if my system will also kill this GPU!!!!!!

    Either the GPU is faulty, or there is an issue with the motherboard.

    Is the GPU seated in the same slot as the previous GPU?

    I've been doing some research and according to this thread on the nvidia forums:

    https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/955527/geforce-drivers/windows-10-build-1607-randomly-black-screens-nvlddmkm-/30/


    The crashes seem to be caused by Windows 10 build 1607 (anniversary edition) when on the Intel X79 chipset but no one has found a solution yet.
