    New PC crashing


    Hi all. I just put together a new pc and am getting random bsods. I am not overclocked. I have updated all the drivers. I can run Prime for about 20 mins or so and it just reboots. I was monitoring my temps and all looked good. I have run memtest for 6 hours with no errors. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I tried the hard drive tests and came up with no errors. I have run prime again and it went for 6 hours with no trouble and I haven't had any blue screens in a week so something I did must have fixed it. If you want to give the dump files a quick look that's cool if not I think the problem is fixed. Thanks for your time. Bill

    I usually give it 2 weeks before saying it's "fixed" - but it's not unusual for these things to fix themselves on occasion.
    Post back if it recurs - I'll remain subscribed to this topic.
