Windows 10: BSOD after running Kaspersky or playing GTA 5

    BSOD after running Kaspersky or playing GTA 5


    I've had several BSODs in the last few weeks. It happens randomly and with no clear pattern, but most often it happens when I run KVRT (Kaspersky Tool) and when playing GTA 5.

    Sometimes it can go days without a BSOD, then again I get 5 a day.

    If I try to reproduce the BSOD I have to at least run KVRT 5 times and sometimes do something in the browser (Firefox), so it's not so easy to pinpoint the cause, as it sometimes runs for several days with no problem.

    GTA 5 also showed some major slowdowns, as well as graphical errors and game crashes that did not necessarily lead to a BSOD but sometimes did.

    Benchmarks and Stresstests (AMD Overdrive, CPU-Z, Prime95) still don't crash or freeze the PC, no matter how long they run. So I wonder why KVRT and GTA cause such problems. MemTest86 did not show any problems.

    Driver are all up to date and windows is updated to the newest version. There is no unknown device in the device manager.

    The system uses an AMD FX-9590 Eight Core processor that has been overclocked to 4,8 GHz (from 4,7) and else only has the graphics card R9 390 slightly overclocked to 1050 MHz (from 1010). The built was stable in 3D Mark Firestrike Stress Test and I had no problem for around a year. Games worked as they should, and there was not a single BSOD before.

    For 4 weeks, however, I had more and more BSODs over time. At the beginning they were rare but now they are more frequent. I set the clocks of both the CPU and GPU back to normal, but now I lag in game and I cannot play it anymore. I still have the same crashes with stock speeds as with overclocks, so there is no difference there.

    Some people pointed out that Power Supply Units can degrade over time. The PSU is from 2011 and had been constantly in use since then. Do you think the voltages dropped over time so that it isn't enough for the CPU?
    I raised the vcore (and all the other) voltages in the BIOS, but that has only lead to more frequent BSODs.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated! :)

    Hi KRISIS,

    Please revert back the overclocks.
    Overclocking an unstable system could result in various issues.
