so this is an issue that's been going on now for a long time. I have tried many things and now I am at the end of my tether.
just to first state my specs:
CPU: Core i7 5930k Haswell-E/EP RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 64GB (8x 8GB) DDR4 2666MHz Memory CMD64GX4M8A2666C15 MOBO: Asus Rampage Extreme V SSD: 1tb Samsung Pro GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1080ti FE in SLI PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W G2 80+ Gold Full Modular Power Supply
the issue is that Randomly with no apparent pattern. my system will just freeze only when gaming generally for long periods of time.
The things I have tried.
* installed a new PSU (Old 1200 W one died) * Replaced the RAM for a new set of the same type as initial ones were faulty *ive had 3 different GPU revisions over the years. GTX titan - GTX 9080ti SLI - GTX 1080ti SLI * Ran memtest 86 for over 11 hours 0 errors * Ran Heaven for a couple of hours no issues * Ran Intels Processor Diagnostic tool all pass * Ran AIDA for 20 mins or so no issues.
I have messed with overclocking my CPU but i cannot get anything stable for any overclock as it all fails during testing I have also played around with the Core V of the CPU a little no help there either. and to be fair my knowledge is very poor in that area. I was just following guides and reading forums.
I have removed my CMOS battery and stated with all default. the system is fine and then only when gaming for a long period of time it will freeze again. I have removed RAM sticks and it still seems to cause the freeze
All my drivers are always up to date for MOBO to windows to GPU I have checked the health of my SSD and it seems fine. I have a clean machine very minimal dust
Im starting to loose my mind over this haha
I was hoping someone out there could help me overcome this issue im having? or has has the same experience?
