A blue screen once per day!

Hello,

I am in need of some advice since I have no clue what to do next.

The System
ASUS Rampage V Extreme
Intel Core i7-5960X
4x F4-2133C15-8GRK (F4-2133C15Q-32GRK 32 GB Kit)
2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X SC (SLI)
2x Samsung 850 Pro 512GB
Sound onboard
3x Monitor
Windows 10 Pro

I am running the two SSD's in RAID1 and I am NOT overclocking anything, also I have water cooling for both GPU's and the CPU which are not overheating.

My Situation
Whenever I start a game and play it for around an hour (45-60 minutes) I get a blue screen. It always happens durng this time frame.
Most of the times I also get a sound loop which then freezes and goes to the blue screen.

This only happens once per day!

After that, I can play the whole day and do whatever I want - no blue screens, no problems.
Now the real problem is that I almost always get a different blue screen error code and just can't figure out who/what is causing this. (Image attached)

Sometimes the dump is not being created due to my pc restarting right away.

I tried the following things:
- Running MemTest for several hours -> no errors
- Removed different memory sticks -> no difference
- Re/Un-installed graphics drivers -> no difference
- Reinstalled Windows -> no difference
- Flashed BIOS to 1701 -> no difference
- Checked timings and V+ on RAM -> everything OK

Lately I noticed that my sound device seems to stop working right before I get the blue screen - in one case I saw that my sound device got disabled in Teamspeak 3.
Normaly the sound loop hits me right away or the blue screen kicks in, but sometimes I can keep playing for another 15 seconds after I'm hearing the "sound loop" and my other screens froze.

On the other hand, If I don't start a game and just browse the internet or watch a video - everything is fine and there are no blue screens.

Any ideas or pointers on where I should look next?
How can this problem only exist until I had a blue screen, once per day?

Thanks.

try whocrashed to get a better idea of what drivers/device may be the issue.

Hello GoNz0-,

thanks for the tip - my attached screenshot is actually taken from WhoCrashed.
Sadly I didn't find any real hints, even with the help of WhoCrashed, for who or what is causing the blue screens.

If I had to take a first guess, I would say it's because you're combining 4 individual sticks instead of using a single 32GB kit. Plus I see a lot of MEMORY_MANAGEMENT errors in your log.

Hello Chino,

I believe that to be my fault in the original post - I took the description from CPU-Z for the single modules as I actually have a KIT:
G.Skill DIMM 32 GB DDR4-2133 Kit (F4-2133C15Q-32GRK, Ripjaws 4 Black)

Correct.

You mentioned running Memtest. Did you run HCI Memtest or Memtest86+?


Hello Chino,

I did run Memtest86+

Please run HCI Memtest instead. There is a section on how to run that tool in my DDR4 3000 guide that's linked in my signature. Report back your results when done.

what PSU and have you connected the molex at the bottom of the motherboard as well as both 8 pin (or 8x4?) cpu power cables to the board?

Hello GoNz0-,

as a PSU I got the: 850 Watt Corsair HXi Series Modular 80+ Platinum

I did connect my 8 pin molex for the cpu at the top of the mainboard, next to the 4 pin (which is not connected).
Where should the other molex at the bottom be? (Image attached)
