'drivers stopped responding and successfully recovered' Please help - Page 3

Revelation. Took my PC1 with the maximus mobo + gtx 660 that always crash in my house (TDR crash) after 5-10 minutes of stress testing to my supervisor's house and stress tested it for 1.5 hours. PC1 was solid. So my house wiring is definitely faulty.

Now question, will a UPS normalise/regulate the voltage/amperage of my outlet? In other words is UPS a solution to my problem?

Thanks

A real-sine ups can solve voltage fluctuations. Most Active-PFC PSUs require real-sine UPS. The sine type is important for Active-PFC PSU's to work properly.

As a last resort, you can also set all voltages and speed manually on that motherboard. You can track the cpu voltage with cpu-z and see how it behaves under load and idle. Idle is important on Intel because we know that under certain conditions, offset mode and c3 & c6 reporting states can cause problem like BSODs.
Could be some auto voltage regulation on the motherboard that messes up things.

PS: Btw, for more info on grounding, aside from all outlets having grounding, the extentions also need grounding. There are extensions without grounding. There are also mixed extensions that have grounded and non-grounded ports.

Just a little update, in case others have similar issues with similar hardware.

It wasn't the PSU or the the electricity or anything else/

It was the Maximus IV Extreme-z motherboard. I tested my system with an Asrock Z77 motherboard and it is solid.

Funny thing is I RMAed my Maximus mobo and received another one, brand new, only to find out that the same problem persists!!!

Is there a setting on the BIOS I can fiddle with?

Any ideas welcome.
