Windows 7: BSOD playing WoW and different BSODs while doing other stuff

Thanks for the update, and I'm sorry to hear.

From what you uploaded so far I was able to get a rough estimate as to what PSU you might need.

If that is correct you need to be looking into an 800Watt PSU.
But to perfectly honest you might need to upgrade your entire system (or at least the main parts) soon
as hardware ages also depending on you usage case.
When it comes to PSUs I tend to recommend SeaSonic & Corsair which are the ones I have
experience with I know that Cooler Master have a good PSU lineup as well but I can't
speak from experience.

Let us know what you think.

Do you think I need to get a better psu just to get rid of BSODs occurring frequently? Cause really I'm just trying to fix the bsod problem as my main goal. I bought this computer 2 years ago for $2k so... buying a new system after spending 2k a little over 2 years ago is not good . I don't build my computers, usually buy from a place that lets you select what parts you want and have them assemble/build it.

I know how you feel , OEM or prebuilt PCs are always more costly.
Let us run some more tests to try and pinpoint a different more prominent cause.
I know you already ran Memtest86+ and it ran for 12hrs, but seeing that you have 24GB
I can say it didn't complete the necessary number of passes to at least have some level
of confidence that RAM is not the issue as the random BCCods usually suggest.

Testing the RAM:

Tip   Tip
  • Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
  • Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.
When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.


After and if the RAM is clean from errors try to stress test once more but first
look inside the case for dust build-up as a contributing factor to high temperatures.

To validate that your CPU is back to stock while stress testing the CPU
run CPU-Z and post screenshots of the CPU/Memory & Graphics tabs.
  • Download Speccy and post a Screenshot of the summary window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.

I'll be able to do the Memtest in a few days since I need to run it for an extended period. In the meantime, I'll report back here if I start getting BSODs again (raiding tuesday-thursday on wow)

It's been nearly a week since I said that I would be able to do the mem test in just a couple of days. I'm not sure when I can do this for an extended period of time since I would have nothing to do during this time. However, ever since I removed the overclocking, I haven't gotten a BSOD since then. Might be a coincidence or that was the problem. I've raided for 3 days since then and haven't gotten any BSODs.

Good news .
But that doesn't change the fact that you might be borderline with this particular PSU.

Furmark: I tried running Furmark and my computer instantly restarted after I pressed "GO!" on the program.

I ran Prime95 for approximately 2 hours as stated in the guide you linked in a previous post.
I would have another go at stressing the system to confirm the issues is reproducible.

Test for thermals and stability:
  • Download Speccy and post a Screenshot of the summary window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.
    • Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

^ I'll get to that sometime this week. However, today when I opened World of Warcraft - my computer would instantly reboot (no bsods or any error messages) upon launching the game. I googled similar experiences and people say it might be related to the graphics card overheating (but mine isn't overheating) or a psu issue. I can't run Diablo 3 either, both diablo 3 and wow are windowed fullscreen. I was able to run hearthstone beta as windowed mode without any issues (it was default on windowed). Not being able to run games that I play is a huge problem since most of my time is spent playing those games. I have went ahead and ordered a 1000 watt psu supply (the other option was 800w, but I would like to be on the safer side getting more, rather than less for future part-upgrades or problems).
------------------------------
When I'm playing hearthstone (a much less cpu/gpu intensive game)... occasionally the screen's background would change to: http://i.imgur.com/QeuLuUy.png

It's supposed to look like this: http://i.imgur.com/PR5LrkO.jpg
------------------------------
Can anyone tell me what the problem is? Graphics driver not being up to date since I'm using the 314.22 suggested one in the thread? Power supply issue?? Regardless, I'll be replacing the power supply on 10/10

Update: I restarted my computer and updated some graphics setting and the healthstone graphics issue is no longer here, but I still have the problem with my computer instantly restarting when trying to run certain games. Will post back here with updates when I replace my psu, but any ideas?
Update #2: Interestingly enough after I reinstalled my graphics driver, I am able to run games without any issues.... that's random ugh but still going to replace my psu

I reinstalled the same graphics driver (314.22) except this time I had all the boxes checked instead of just the physx.

Update 10/10: I am unable to run certain games again... this is really inconsistent and I'm just going to get to the bottom of this asap.
