Windows 7: BSOD during games and 3D Applications

BSOD during games and 3D Applications


So yesterday I was playing Planetside 2 and randomly hit a BSOD. I didn't think too much of it but it happened again today whilst I was using 3DS Max. My PC has been on for a good few hours but it wasn't heating issues, all my temps seem fine and GPU is between 30-60c and CPU is normally around 20-50c.

I didn't note the error code sorry but I used the SF Diagnostic Tool which I attached to the thread.

My specs are:
CPU - i7-2600k stock clocks
RAM - 16GB Corsair Vengeance
MB - Asus P8P67 Pro
GPU - GigaByte GeForce 670
PSU - Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W
STORAGE - 2x 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 (One is my system drive) 1x Seagate Barracuda 1TB
OS - Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to 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.

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, per RAM module per slot.

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

Okay, thank you for taking the time to check them out. I'll report the results back when I manage to do those checks.

Thanks again!
