Hi Arc

Thanks for the help looking at the dump file.

I've just done a stresstest of the GPU for 5 minutes. The temp maxed at 85 degress.
Yesterday I did Memtest because I thought It was the ram, but no errors found.

I have a Corsair 850W PSU and according to the calculator you linked I shall have 538W.

How many passes of memtest you ran?

Temps are good, so the PSU is. If the GPU runs good under stress, then it is also good.

Do the CPU stress test too, as suggested.

If all goes good, then we have to consider the PCIe port as failing itself. Can you use the GPU in another port?

I ran the memtest 6 times yesterday.

Doing CPU test atm. 100 % CPU load and 62 degress.

Will try and move the GPU to another socket when done with CPU test.

Memtest86.

Just change the slot of the GPU and played Saints Row 4 for 1 hour with no crash. Might have a dead pci-slot

Tomorrow I'm gonna play some more and see how that goes. So far so good

Thanks for the help so far Arc

Memtest is not to run 6 or so times. It is to be counted by number of passes. The sufficient run is about 8 complete passes. It may take 6 to 8 hours to complete it.

But it sounds good that the other PCIe port works fine. Let us know about your advancements.
