Windows 10: Diagnosing BSOD that only occurs while playing crysis 3 Solved

    Diagnosing BSOD that only occurs while playing crysis 3

    The error read - Session "EventLog-AirSpaceChannel" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188

    Before anyone asks: Yes, my CPU overclock is stable. I ran intel's extreme tuning utility for 6+ hrs (temps rarely go above 73c for xtu) along with IntelBurnTest and everything passed.

    Can someone please enlighten me?

    Hello Elucidate and welcome to TenForums :)

    There are two crash dumps and both show that the write process to the level 0 cache of the CPU failed. This is often because of corruption or misconfiguration somewhere and maybe this only happens when playing the game. I think if it was the CPU or other hardware you would experience this crash much more often.

    Error Type    : Cache error
    Operation     : Generic
    Error         : DCACHEL0_WR_ERR (Proc 0 Bank 1)
    Does this still happen if you remove all overclocking programs like MSI Afterburner? Such programs are known to cause BSOD and overclocking can easily give rise to these cache errors.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I should note that there's no overclocks present on the GPU. I only use MSI afterburner to apply a fan curve. I'll run crysis3 tonight without MSI afterburner and I'll report back with my findings.

    Unfortunately it's still an ongoing issue after uninstalling afterburner. As I stated earlier: it only occurs whilst playing crysis3 (I have hundreds of titles on steam/origin combined and nothing of this sort ever happened when playing other titles).

    My only solution is to ask EA for a refund since I still qualify.

    I'll mark this as solved then.
