Pc restart when run games from my hdd

Hello , So let me tell you how the story begins , i used to always use my secondary hard drive for gaming/storage , and few days ago i have overclocked my cpu and right after that , every time i try to play a game from my secondary disk , pc crush and restart ,ive been told its due to overclock and a format would have fixed the issue but unfortunately it dint , Games i run from my sdd works fine , its just the secondary hhd . Any idea of how to solve this ?

Well, before you overclocked it, the games worked. Now, after the overclock they don't. At least according to your post.

Hmm nvm seems to be the overclock , ive tried the same game on ssd and pc still crush , This is not a problem for every game though , i can play another game for hours with no issue , what do you think the issue might be ? Low vcore ? I can run prime95 just fine though

I am not an expert on OC, but it should depend on how you OCed. Did you stabilize PCIe frequency in BIOS to 100Mhz? Prime95 doesn't stress GPU I believe. You can try FurMark or IntelBurnTest. Also bench with 3DMark and Unigine Valley.

Hmm as soon as i click FurMark test to start pc crash ! I never tried to overclock my gpu though . What could cause the problem ?

I have also tried to run the game with default system and still crushing.

For diagnostic sake, load the defauls in BIOS.

Does FurMark crash with default clocks? Check your game again. (Was it working prior to OC?)

Also please fill in System Specs System Info - See Your System Specs

It is possible FurMark not stressing the GPU at that resolution. Please load defaults in BIOS(or perform a CMOS reset) and try FurMark again with full resolution.
You should first make sure GPU is alright before moving to the game (which may have a total different issue).
