Games keep crashing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I've posted about this before and in several threads... but haven't really gotten any info on it.

I'm running at 4.8 with 1.42v. I was able to complete 15 hours of prime and generally don't really have any issues. I'll play for roughly anywhere from around 20min to an hour and I'll almost always have the games crash or freeze. Most of the time I'll get a 126 BSOD shortly after the freeze and sometimes it'll recover and say that the display driver has topped working... I don't have my cards overclocked I have tried 3 different drivers for the gpus.

The BSODs are coming mostly from NFS The Run and the crashes to desktop or when exiting from Dirt 2.

I've played around with adding more vcore... the pll and vtt voltages. Using offset and fixed vcores... turning on and off the c states. Can I rule out that it's not my OC? Maybe it's the drivers or the games themselves?

It seems that the CPU is fine when it can run 15h of Prime95. First thing I would try to do is test the PC as whole- GPU's and CPU at the same time. It might be a GPU's problem or even PSU problem.
