    BSOD playing any game [Kernel_Security_Check_Failure] +...

    Edit.; scf /scannow shows no error, chkdisk shows no errors and memtest shows RAM OK!
    VINCENT-PC-2015-01-25_193044, has been added. It is a BSOD MEMORY_MANAGEMENT problem, and on the event viewer, the time of the BSOD coincides exactly with another Kernel-power 41-63 --- While Restarting for Windows Update
    Edit3; VINCENT-PC-2015-01-25_203010, has been added. It is a BSOD DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, happened at 20:22, same time that another Kernel-power 41-63. At the exact same time, I hit the computer with my chair, kinda gently, not on purpose of course.

    I am so excited that a forum like that exists.

    Hello everybody! For a few days now, I've been able to complete my second build PC

    Mobo : Asus Maximus VII Hero (Z97)
    CPU : i7-4790k
    PSU : EVGA G2 850W Gold+
    GPU : EVGA GTX 970 ACX2.0 x2 SLI'd
    Case : H440 from NZXT Razer Edition
    Monitor : Asus ROG Swift
    RAM : Corsair 1600MHz 2x8 Gb "Vengeance" series
    SSD : HyperX Fury 256 Gb
    HDD : Hitachi 1 Tb 7200 RPM + 4Tb WD Green (which I removed)

    The machine is really performant, and that's what I wanted. Until... and here's the story.

    1. I install windows from USB key. Activate it. All is good. I install it on SSD.
    2. Some system files install themselves on the WD Green. For some reasons, I can't even use 100% of it because it ain't GPT and I can't convert it. After some BSOD's, I decide to remove it. I reinstall Windows, all on the SSD. It narrowed down, apparently, the diversification of BSOD to one :

    and sometimes
    and sometimes
    and sometimes
    and other times
    NO BSOD : just the PC restarting.

    The last times I had this BSOD, I couldn't come back to Windows, so I had to restore it from several hours earlier. And here I am.

    I have read about the minidump files. I currently enabled the writing of these, and I'm waiting on the next BSOD to send you : there are no more since I restored Win (30-40 mins ago). Anyway, it's only while I game (and then worsens, and then restore needed).

    Since that restore, also, I've enabled the Driver_verifier. Standard mode. When I was in BSOD rage, enabling that just killed the possibility of me getting into Windows. For now, all seems GOOD. I didn't install games yet.

    Drivers installed so far with driver_verifier enabled :

    LAN driver
    Intel Rapid Storage driver
    NVidia drivers
    Realtek Audio drivers
    MOBO Bios updated

    I didn't run Windows Update yet (edit : done at 19:23)

    I also checked the event manager, which DID NOT reset. Here's a picture of it.Click image for larger version
    As you can see, the only critical error (which happened at the same time as the Kernel BSODS) are kernel related. I'm starting to wonder what the hell is wrong! I payed the bucks for the PC, and I'm a bit in a panic. If you guys could help.

    I also JUST ran a sfc /scannow : the results are that the program didn't find any violations of integrity (or errors I guess)

    I'm sorry for the delay in responding to your posts.
    Do you still need help with this problem?

    For starters, with a new build the most common problem is a bad connection.
    Reseat ALL connections in the computer, taking care to make sure that everything is firmly and properly seated.
    If it still BSOD's, then start with these free hardware diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

    While waiting for another reply, please do this:
    Please do the following:
    - open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
    - expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
    - right click on Administrative Events
    - select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
    - save the file as Admin.evtx
    - zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
    - upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

    FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here: Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2

    While waiting for a reply, please monitor your temps with this free utility: HWMONITOR | Softwares | CPUID

    Thank you for your time. I have solved this issue on thursday with techsupportforums.

    Finally, I swapped things one by one with components I knew were working. Turns out the memory was bad, even after 8 passes of memtest on each stick! Issued RMA.
