I know it's old but it's all I've got. Please help.
Admittedly I think this has been creeping up over time an I just haven't connected the dots.
Maximus V Extreme BIOS vers 1903 (8/19/13)
i7-3770k 3.5ghz CPU
16 gig Corsair Dominator Platinum (4x4gb kit)
ASUS GTX670-DC2-4GD5 Video card
(total available mem 12,259. dedicated vid mem 4096. shared vid mem 8163.)
Windows 10 Pro Ver 10.0.18362 (have been trying to 2 days to get the newer one but it freezes at 70%)
2x 240gb Corsair G Force GS SSD (1 OS, 1 doc, apps, downloads)
1x Seagate FireCuda 1TB SSHD External storage.
What I have done to try to repair this on my own:
removed sound card (Asus Xonar Phoebus),
ran a heavy gauge power cord to another room (different circuit),
cleaned video card fins,
cleaned fins on CPU cooler (Cooler Master hyper 212),
increased fan speed with EVGA Precision X (turned back off when it made no difference),
ran chkdsk /r (no errors)
ran reg editor (minor errors leading to deleted app folders and old files),
ran data lifeguard for windows returned with no errors,
Turned off expressVPN
Turned off Avast (back on at reboot)
*Watch Core Temp, average temp around 104F but exceeds 180F during videos. No games running (sadly cannot even load them anymore).
*ran bluescreenview and received 5 errors (so far). They are huge so I will try to include them in a way it doesn't take a month to read.
Dont know how to wrap these files so they don't take up so much room so I saved them as txt and zipped them into a folder. Note sure how else to do it.
2 more crashes since the list was made, but you get the idea. almost every time when reloading the computer will load to the desktop, crash again, and load.
Some of the errors I see in event viewer have me concerned my CPU is going 😞
. Please help be eliminate that as a concern, that is an expense I cannot take atm.
Thank you for your help and any advice you can muster.
