    Reocurring BSOD during gaming and high demand processes


    This is my first post here and I'm glad a BSOD forum exists. I don't ask for help with my pc often, but I'm stumped. I have a high end build that crashes while I'm playing demanding games like GTA V. It has crashed at random times when performing simple tasks. Its tedious having decent hardware, but being not being able to fix it yourself. Any help is appreciated!

    Just a thought, overheating? Get a program that detects your GPU temperatures.

    Problem solved! I had the 16gb worth of DDR3 ramn, replaced it with some 1866 DDR3 8GB I had in my old build. Oddly enough it works better than before! I think it was a mobo compatibility issue. I'm thankful for the replies I got though!

    Hi kennyhunter & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Really sorry for the delay. Sadly, there are not many analysts and I was having my end semester exams
    In case of any further, I would be more than glad to help you out.

    Once again sorry!
