BSOD mainly playing TF2 and Dota 2, multiple error codes

Good day,

I hope the text-wall below doesn't scare you too much, but I wrote down all the things I thought could be helpful.

Let me explain the problem further: I get BSODs seemingly random, with all kinds of error codes and .sys files (as far as I could see on the bluescreens). It startet roughly about when I picked up Team Fortress 2 again. Maybe it's something else, but when it began I was so sure that it was TF2 causing it, that I didn't investigate other causes back then. Surprisingly (for me), it went on even when I wasn't playing, causing BSOD whenever it wants (Youtube in Firefox, while booting...).
In addition to the BSOD I can give you the following scenario that happens whenever it bluescreens: The PC automatically tries to reboot after the dump files have been collected (by the way, not all files get collected. I have multiple BSODs without logs, because it got stuck while collection dump files. After 1+ hour I forced it to shut down by holding down the start button). The PC tries to reboot 2 times without success (it doesn't get to the BIOS screen) and with the third attempt it just idles somewhere - I don't get any video signals nor am I able to enter BIOS, because my (USB) keyboard isn't active. I can tell because it's a wireless one and the receiver has a little LED when the keyboard is ready to use. I have tried none the less by constatnly pressing F2 to enter BIOS (which gives a 'beep' when successful), but nothing happened. The screen goes to standby because of no signal after a couple of minutes and all that's happening is a short HDD-noise every second or so, as if they were in some kind of loop.
I now have enabled 'Boot Beep', which gave me 4 beeps per failed bootattempt today when I got another bluescreen. I looked it up and it means 'System timer failure', whatever that is.
What I have done so far:
  • Video Card driver: uninstalled, reinstalled, tried an old one, updated
  • RAM: memtestx86+: one RAM stick after the other, both slots, 8 passes (~4h) each
  • Prime95: After more than 1 hour, the temperature was still at a comfortable 48░C
  • EVGA OC Scanner: tested for possible overheating, GPU temperature was stable at 68░C; 90-100% load
  • PSU: Ran EVGA and Prime95, as well as all case fans on high, checked voltages with SpeedFan, looked ok to me.
Now I'm a bit sad that I didn't get my self-built PC to work. Whatever tests/things/screenshots you want me to do, count me in.

PS: I found a very reliable way to provoke a BSOD: Playing Dota 2 for a couple of minutes. Just in case you want even more dump files .

Welcome to the Forum faebu4,

Please remove Norton for testing purpose.

Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability
compared to other antivirus or internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-

Hello again,

first of all, thanks for the reply. After I ran Malewarebytes (no result), CHKDSK on my drives (no result) and Scannow on my boot drive (no result), I had an idea what could cause the problem.
Solution: I moved the RAM sticks from the first priority slots (A2 and B2) to the next best option, A1 and B1 RAM slots. I'm running it for 3 days without any problems now, so it seems like the motherboard or the processor had something agains me using the first priority RAM slots.
Anyway, thanks for the help, it's been much appreciated.
