Random BSOD: light usage, heavy usage, gaming.

Windows 10's message was typically IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, suspecting a driver issue I reformatted to 8.1 which I am on now. The message I'm getting now is PFN_LIST_CORRUPT.


Hardware/full build: Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core, GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GAMING X 8G, Node 804 MicroATX Mid Tower - System Build - PCPartPicker


My strongest suspect is memory, however HeavyLoad ran for 4+ hours maxing both memory and CPU before the system decided to restart. I also ran a Memtest86+ which passed multiple times. I still suspect a memory problem though as I am unable to boot the system with 4 sticks installed unless I have the XMP profile already activated. 3 sticks is fine, 2 sticks is fine, 1 stick is fine, different ports are fine. I tried different sticks in different slots and no change.


Tonight I am getting a lot of the following errors in the event log. This is while the computer was remaining idle on the login screen. I'm running WoW now and there are none to be seen.

Code:
A corrected hardware error has occurred.


Component: PCI Express Root Port
Error Source: Advanced Error Reporting (PCI Express)


Bus:Device:Function: 0x0:0x1D:0x0
Vendor ID:Device ID: 0x8086:0xA118
Class Code: 0x30400


The details view of this entry contains further information.

I can run Furmark with seemingly no issue, Prime95 is stable, IntelBurnTest is stable.


Windows is fully updated (and was when on Windows 10 as well). I am using drivers from https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/MAXIMUS-VIII-GENE/HelpDesk_Download/ for Windows 8.1 (and Windows 10 when on it previously)


All peripherals that are connected now were connected to my previous computer which never had a bluescreen. The only new USB device is the Corsair H100i v2 water pump but the software/drivers are not installed as I use the motherboard to control fans.. All internal hardware is new minus the two SATA drives.

Hi tewan,

Welcome to the 8forums :)

Do you also have (re)installed/updated the chipset drivers?
The corrected hardware error log stems from the chipset.

Please remove any overclocking present, CPU, GPU, RAM.

Thank you for the reply, the system is currrently stock (CPU, GPU, and RAM).
I updated the chipset drivers from Intel's website last night and started Prime95 on the default blend setting. 6 hours in there was still no BSOD. I stopped it, customized the settings to use 26GB RAM (which with Windows running in background effectively maxes it) and left it running while I am still at work. Once I get home in about 5 hours I will know if it crashed or not. That being said, I've never experienced a crash using Prime95.

edit/update: Prime95 has been running for 12 hours now and has not experienced a crash so... perhaps the chipset drivers solved the issue. Will update if I experience one tonight whilst gaming.

edit/update#2: Still getting the PCIe error, but no BSOD yet.
