    BSOD - Playing Stressing Games Vague BSODS


    I am running a rather new PC and this issue has been going on for a while, I was left to guess that it was a under powered PSU until today when I upgraded it to 850w.
    I am running the following;
    CPU: AMD FX 8350
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 980
    MOBO: Asus m5a97 le r2.0
    RAM: GSKILL Ripjaws X 2x4gb
    Storage: Samsung EVO 850 250gb and WD Caviar Blue 1TB

    Now Ive updated my PC before when trying this to no avail. Checked all my drivers and even uninstalled them. Ive got a new CPU just need to get new MOBO to test and see if MOBO is faulty. Ive also replaced the GPU since I purchased 2 initially. The BSOD's happen mostly when playing AAA games like BF4, GTA etc etc. Games that are graphically intense. I can play ARMA 3 and crash once and a while. I also crash if I am say rendering a video. Pretty much if the PC ramps up, I crash.

    Please make sure your system is updated in Windows Update, exception for Windows 10.

    If you are cleaning up your system, do NOT cleanup your system, there is only 1 log of a crash and a few hours of events, not enough for proper analysis.

    I did a clean up just a bit ago. I also stated that its happened before the updates were there as well. Ive tried completely updating everything before to no avail.

    Please do NOT cleanup your system, I don't know what you clean up but with the zip you uploaded it had a negative result on the analysis due to lack of data.

    Currently you have made it only difficult to troubleshoot as you may have deleted relevant data, but the dumps are the most important so yes some crashes are necessary
