Windows 7: Multiple Different BSODs Custom PC

Multiple Different BSODs Custom PC

Technical specs are on my profile for viewing if required.
I bought all the parts to this computer off of newegg.ca back in January 2014, been having multiple BSODs since that time. I've ran Memtest 3 different times overnight and haven't had 1 since issue yet. I've downloaded all the latest drivers off of manufacture websites and by using multiple software's to check for outdated drivers.

Examples of when these BSODs will occur:
Playing Skyrim, I have the game completely pimped out in 2k resolution, very demanding in some areas (Riften). BSOD will occur randomly throughout the game.
While playing Outlast, I've had BSOD's occur when the game tries to do an auto-save in demanding areas.
Witcher II, while playing in highly demanding areas, though BSOD was much less common on that game.
No games open, only Google Chrome on youtube or surfing webpages will also cause BSOD.
(Fixed) Used to have BSOD will computer was fully idle (I was AFK) it would happen approximately 1-2 hours into idle, I fixed that by modifying advanced power settings (HDD idle was at 20 minutes, changed to 60 minutes, no more idle BSODs).

Most common BSODs lately are:
System Service Exception + Variants
IRQL Not Less or Equal
Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal
System Thread Exception Not Handled

I've also tried switching my 2 RAM sticks into the other 2 RAM slots, and switching them a whole different amount of ways, never worked. Everytime these problems arise I always look online for fixes, but they never worked. All drivers are up-to-date (That I know of), I have all the latest Microsoft updates as well.

Hi Svyn.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.
If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Also, do you have access to any other GPU to apply and test with? If so, do it and see the situation.

Let us know the results.

After running FurMark for 15 minutes, the GPU only got up to 82 degrees, 99% load, 15% memory load, 69% fan speed.
I've used MemTest multiple times already, all with my RAM in different memory slots, no errors came up.
If you want me to test it again, I can.

If you want to do memtest86+ again, do it for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Alright, I ran memtest for 5 passes, no errors.
When I ran driver verifier, it didn't even make it past the windows logo on start-up

It basically flickered to a BSOD and then restart itself, leaving no DMP file.
I did see that it was an IRQL Not Less or Equal error though, didn't see anything else.
I let it BSOD about 5 times before I did a system restore.

You require a minimum of 8 passes for MemTest86+ - 5 passes is not enough to thoroughly test RAM

Alright, I've been busy so I left Memtest up for a long time, it ended up having 28 passes and 0 errors.
Driver Verifier gives me the IRQL Not Less Or Equal and doesn't allow me to get passed the windows boot up logo.

That is a relieving news.

Disable driver verifier.

Then free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Now enable driver verifier again. Hopefully this time the computer will crash after booting to windows and we will get the necessary crash dump.

Alright, so I ended up getting to my desktop screen without any BSOD. So I let it run for approximately 24 hours, am I able to do normal tasks on that computer like gaming, streaming, etc.. Or do I just let it sit?
