Not sure if GPU related (Game/System freezes when Nvidia Shadowplay is enabled, happens randomly), need help!

I'm having a weird problem in my system, when I enable Nvidia Shadowplay in GFE and go game (it can be recording or not, doesn't matter) sometimes my game acts weird before the real crash (whole system crash not just the game, there is no BSOD showed and I need to reboot in the case button), I'm only playing Elder Scrolls Online at the moment, and it happens sometimes, the game goes without sound (some skills and things still have sound but most of the game goes without sound), and then I can't see enemies and some ground area skills in the game are also invisible, it stays like that for like 30s and then the whole PC freezes without showing BSOD or anything, only way to fix is to reboot in the case button.

Things I tried:

Fresh Windows Installation
Fresh Game Installation
Double checked if my CPU and RAM OC was stable and also removed both of their OC
Tried old Nvidia drivers

What seems to fix it: Completely disabled Nvidia Shadowplay in GFE, I don't know what is this related, to GPU or something, it's really weird never have something like this before, if you guys can give me a hand I appreciate!

Thanks!

Interesting, it does sound on the face of it like a software/driver issue, perhaps just a conflict between shadowplay and ES:O but then issues with loading in larger amounts of data could also suggest a storage, RAM or VRAM problem.
I would try checking the health of the drive, reseating the RAM then plugging your hard drive or SSD into another port just as quicker free preliminary checks before you drive yourself insane figuring out whether its game, driver or GPU.

I wish you luck cause this sounds like one of those situations where you could wind up building an entirely different system just to find out the game had a bug/conflict all along or for some reason replacing something seemingly completely unrelated fixes it for reasons you'll never understand.

Have you tried running other games with it? If its not happening in others then we can probably use occam's razor here knowing that bethesda are known for severely buggy games.

I wouldn't even be surprised if in the end you had to conclude your XB271HU somehow caused the problem, mines been so freakin weird since I got it. (I'm mostly joking here)

Next time when the system crashed but not rebooting automatically, try pressing Win + Ctrl + Shift + B to restart the GPU. If that doesn't work, download Blender on Steam, then try render the BMW Scene using GPU: https://download.blender.org/demo/te...27_2.blend.zip

If it throws CUDA error or any error when doing render, could be your VRAM is defective.

But why Blender, why not A/B/C/D testing software?
I've came to this situation where I tested my GPU in almost every benchmarking/stress testing software, even games and all said it's normal/stable. But once it hits Blender trying to render the BMW scene, the CUDA Cores throwing errors.

I see, I thought it could be my SSD (I have atm just one 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus M2, have to update my signature), when I perform benchmarks on it, it acts normally, the write and read speeds are ok, the weird thing is that I don't need to be recording to have the problem, just by having Shadowplay enabled it can happen, and when I mean Shadowplay, not that feature in which records the past 5 min you set, I disabled that, I mean just having it for anytime you press ALT + F9 and it starts recording.

I will try that, for now I'm testing longer to see if the problem was really Shadowplay, which seems to be.

So after 5 days testing without Shadowplay I can confirm the problem is related to Shadowplay, maybe it's overlay or something related to that, it's weird because I always used Shadowplay for recording and even streaming in the past in the same PC, without changing anything and it always was without problem.
