Hi ! I don't know where to post this because I don't really know the source of the problem, so forgive me. I get random BSOD. Sometimes it just happens, while watching a movie or simply doing nothing. Sometimes all the drivers stop working and I'm forced to restart the computer. Other times I play a game, alt+tab, open Chrome, freezes and blue screen. All related in the Event Viewer as Kernel Power error. And altho I have activated my Minidump, it doesn't register any dump files. It's set properly on Kernel Data, I have space... it just doesn.t record them. I didn't have any kind of problem with the system for quite a long time. It just started suddently and I doubt it's hardware problem.
It is an:
- FX-6300 stock settings BUT I disabled the Hyperboost thing
- Asus M5A97 R2.0 motherboard. It has VRM heatsink, "only" a 4+2 Power Phase but many people assured me it's enough if I don't want to do overclocking. Latest BIOS installed.
- 2 sticks of DDR3 1600mhz HyperX Black, 8GB in total. Stock settings.
- Gigabyte R9 280X Rev 2.0 stock settings. Latest BETA Driver.
- PSU is a 90% Super Flower 600W Gold Rated with 50A on the +12V rail. Enough wattage, good PSU, again, multiple people assured me of that. I did aswell some PSU Calculator tests and it showed up I had enough juice for the system with this.
- 1 WD Blue 1TB 64mb
- 4 Red LED 120mm Fans, 2 Fans high performance 120mm. 6 - 120mm fans in total. 2 exhaust - 4 intakes.
- All on Windows 8.1 64bit updated to the day.
I ran the following softwares:
- HD Tune - it shows my Hard Disk is OK. I ran Benchmark, Stress Test, verified the health via Windows, everything is just fine.
-Prime95 - the temps are getting to around 75 Celsius. Quite a lot but it's Prime95 and stock cooler. Usually in full load, it runs to around 60-65.
-OCCT - Ran some tests to monitorize the voltages and they were fine. I especially monitorized the V-Core. From the 0,830V (the idle one) it went up to 1,23 and stood there. Some small fluctuations here and there but nothing that passed a difference of 0,050 V. The +12V was about as stable as this.
-Also ran AIDA64 Sytem Stability and Furmark.
The computer DID NOT CRASH IN NEITHER OF THESE TESTS ! I play freakin' Battlefield 4 on Ultra MP 64 people, and it doesn't crash. But again, sometimes I open a small thing and boom goes the weasel.
What could it be ? Again, my hardware looks fine by the software test readings. The software is fine aswell since I did a fresh reinstall of the OS. So what can it be ? Ghosts ?
