Windows 7: Video Hardware Error/Power Supply

Unfortunately, I'm back. Had another BSOD today. I re-ran the SF Diagnostic Tool to capture the report from the most recent BSOD.

Also, I ran the stress test. After about 3 minutes in, the GPU temp appeared to level out at 86 degrees C. It did not change after another minute, so I stopped the test, as the instructions suggested to do if the temperature levels out. All other temperatures, as monitored via HWMonitor, remained at very safe levels.

I have attached the newest SF Diagnostic report. Please direct your attention to the BSOD on April 26, thank you very much for your assistance.

Code:
BugCheck 116, {fffffa800a234010, fffff880051c16ac, ffffffffc000009a, 4}

Unable to load image \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+9336ac )
Code:
Usual causes:  Video driver, overheating, bad video card, BIOS, Power to card
There seems to be a overheating issue, which can contribute to Stop 0x116's, remove all the cards (RAM, Graphics Card(s), Network Card etc.) and clean all the motherboard slots very carefully and clean all the fans using either a can of compressed air or using your own breath if powerful enough.

I'm more likely to think this is an issue with power going to the card. This has been an off an on issue ever since acquiring the computer 1.5 years ago (when it was dust-free). Also, it leveled out during the super intense GPU test at 86 degrees. Safe temperature for the GTX 590 is all the way up to 97, which is well above the recorded 86.

However, that said... Is there a program like CPUID Hardware Monitor that, instead of outputting the temperature information to the screen, it logs temperature to a file ever minute or so? That way, on BSOD, I could check the logs and see what the most recent recorded temperature was before the crash...

You could use CoreTemp which has a Temperature Logging option, see the attached screenshot:

Attachment 265851

Once that has been configured, a log file should be created within the folder which you installed .exe of CoreTemp.Here is the download link, CoreTemp (like many programs now) has become bundled with bloatware with the installation wizard, remove any tick boxes for any additional programs if able, or simply remove these programs after installation of CoreTemp.Please enter the BIOS, and then post the current settings for the 3V, 5V and 12V voltages, and use this free PSU wattage calculator to check for sufficient power - eXtreme Power Supply Calculator Lite

The PS Calc puts my minimum power at 800 Watts and suggested at 850, so I should be in good shape. Also, I was generally pretty conservative when answering questions I was unsure about and selected something that would consume the most power. That said, 850 is quite a bit higher than I would have guessed...

CoreTemp only appears capable of logging the CPU temp, unfortunately. I'm looking out for other options that are capable of logging GPU temps, including rolling my own: windows - How to read GPU (graphic card) temperature? - Stack Overflow

I'll ask for some suggestions

Your PSU is 1050 watts, as seen in your system specifications, so you should be fine in terms of wattage, what were the settings for the voltages?

You can download and install GPU z. On your desktop, create a new folder and name it logs or whatever you want. Open GPUz, click the sensor tab, at the bottom checl log. When you do, a serch box will come up. Navigate to th new folder you created and select it. GPUz will log almost everything about your card, including temp, mem usage, power info in that folder. As usual, be careful about the unwanted programs they want to install with GPUz.

2.976, 4.972, and 12.175 for the three settings. (I think this was the information you wanted?)

Nice, I'll give that a shot, thanks!

They seem to be okay, and post the log of your temperatures after a few hours of normal usage.

Will do. Tbh, I'm hoping to get a BSOD in the near future while logging... the one and only time I will ask for a BSOD haha.
