Not sure where else to really put this... as i'm not sure what the issue relates to Ive copied my part of the convo on my thread @ Tom's hardware. Hope i can get an answer from this really odd issue.



So recently i did an upgrade to windows 10.

I thought at first, hey, this looks great.... Now, im kinda regretting it.

Today i decided to go back and play a few games (walks away slowly) i booted up World of warcraft. Was playing for probably 3 hours, boom, Kernel error.

Didn't think anything of it. Started it back up and started playing. 10 minutes in, same thing.

I made sure to update most of my drivers to a Windows 10 compatible set of drivers, but something is causing the machine to reset (and when it resets, it goes 100% off, then turns back on. Its really weird.

I pulled the machine into the garage thinking it needed cleaning. Got out my trusty compressor... Oh ****, (*&^#*@(8 There's a bit of water on my GPU! Cleaned my loop, tightened down the clamps, pressure tested and its good. No more water! Dried off the GPU, cleaned up the rest of the computer, and made sure there was ZERO water on contact.
Also, after installing WOW last night, i actually started playing it and when it went to cinematic it was green bars everywhere. You could still see the video, but it was fully loaded with green on the screen. I flipped my SLI bridge and it was working fine after....

Hopefully this helps for the troubleshooting.


There is NO problem when the computer is in windows, its when i start playing a game. (im about to test out other games too)

I did check the cards yesterday, there was no corrosion, or any kind of damage to it at all. I did use a magnifying glass and make sure there was no physical damage that i could see. It doesnt appear that it went into the PCI-E port either. (thankfully)

Just to claifiy though, this was PC coolant, not full straight water. brand was EKWB Blood red. Has been swapped out with a silver kill coil and some distilled water.

That being said, i updated the driver yesterday as i saw there was a new one from Nvidia, and the error hasn't happened yet. i will keep this post updated as to what i find with a bit more testing.

After doing a bit more research, i also found that this may be a result of the sound processor on the motherboard with windows 10 drivers? does this ring a bell to anyone? I have disabled the onboard media output and am only using the nvidia sound capabilities for now.

Well, i double checked for any coolant when i got home. Nothing came up anywhere.

I had installed the new drivers yesterday, and i went hard tonight for the past 4 hours. Not a single reboot. I also went looking for dump files, and it appears there is no directory at all under the system32 folder. looked high and low, couldn't find anything. Could it be under another folder? In the mean time, i'm going to just keep going as if this didn't happen and assume it was a driver fault... its really bizarre though.

I did some more testing.
I reinstalled my OEM copy of W7 Ultimate.

Had no issues... until today.
I did some digging and i found a few things just slightly off that MAY have caused something, but appears not to have made a difference.

My Dram timing was off in the BIOS as well as having the improper clock speed. I have changed it and it appears to have had no positive effect.

I rebooted and went into my Nvidia settings and disabled my SLI. Currently running 2 GTX 760's in SLI on a 850W Corsair H series PSU.

It appears to ONLY have effect when im playing a game. I'm still testing this theory that there might be something wrong with my SLI setup.

Well I found out today what is it. Looks like I'm looking fr a new motherboard. 3 of the tracers are nearly severed causing my sli issues no problems without sli so I figure that's the sli communication bridge. Went to memory express today and the Sr tech guy said that's exactly what happened. One of the gpu were rubbed up against the motherboard.. so now I'm in he market for a z77 sabertooth or something along those lines.

Alright. So yesterday i received my replacement Asus board. I put the rig back together and started installing a few items and while updating/installing WOW, the same event happened.

I did a bit more research and found that "automatic restart" was checked. I removed that check and the computer didnt seem to restart all night according to the event viewer.

Also, while setting up the BIOS i did notice that the memory wasn't set up for XMP profile. Reading up and from past experience, the XMP settings normally wont cause any issues like this would it? I mean granted the RAM was running slower than it was made for, but would it cause an error like this?
