    BSOD Driver_IRQL_Less_OR_Equal (Gaming)


    I posted on here a while ago about the same issue. I restored my computer and updated all drivers, since then i've still be getting the same issue. The issue only happens when i play some games. Hall.dll Ntoskrnl.exe are the main errors i get.

    Intel 6700k 4.0ghz
    Asus Z170-p
    Nvidia 980TI
    Hyper X 16 GB Dual Channel
    Storage - Kingston SV300, Toshiba DT01
    Windows 10

    I have tried:

    Clean install windows with only website manufactured Drivers
    Memtest 6+hrs
    Clean install of all Nvidia Drivers
    GE Benchmark Tests
    1) sfc /scannow
    2) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    3) chkdsk /scan

    This computer currently has been wiped and has clean install of all manufactured drivers. from Asus,intel,Nvidia

    I've just realised my CPU is overclocked, i read a lot about overclocking causing this issue. Please let me know.

    I cannot get much from the dumps, unfortunately.

    Please remove any overclocking, it can affect troubleshooting and system stability.

    I've not crashed since putting my Bios factory default settings, may have fixed the issue.
