Windows 7: PC freezing without BSOD

PC freezing without BSOD


5 months ago I started getting random freezes during browsing, watching youtube videos. I tried memtest for 12 hours straight, but haven't found any single errors. Tried Furmark, linx 0.6.5 and nothing.
Everything was stable during these tests. But I just replaced memory sticks just to be sure.
And my issue magically gone. I used my PC for 5 months straight, but today I got this issue again:

During watching live stream on my computer just froze on the unusual sky blue screen (not like bsod screen, but just sky blue screen without any text), sound frooze too and I had to reboot manually. PC rebooted but with some delay.

Hello EvanHayes, welcome to the Forums. I will try to help if I can. You had one dump file but it was of little help.

A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa8006be78f8, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 0000000000000000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 0000000000000000, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Pleas update your System Specs for me. I need as much Detail as possible with Manufacturer and Model. Please include the PSU and CPU Cooler. Maybe this will help.

Please fill out your System Specs

Thanks for your reply. I already had all latest drivers from MSI websites.


CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
Motherboard: MSI Z87-G43 (MS-7816)
BIOS: BIOS Date: 07/23/14 08:44:47 Ver: V1.10B0
MEMORY: 2x4 GB Hynix/Hyundai, Part Number HMT351U6CFR8C-PB, Serial Number 152BFC64
HDD: T1000DM003-9YN162 ATA Device
SOUND CARD: (2) Creative Audigy Audio Processor (WDM) (Creative Audigy RX)
DISPLAY: Crossover Black Tune 2735AMG
PSU: Seasonic S12G-650
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1, Build 7601 Multiprocessor Free
Install Date 4/16/2015 2:30:06 AM
CASE: Aerocool Strike-X ST + Two additional Thermalright X-Silent 140mm at the bottom.
CPU Cooler: Ice Hammer IH-THOR
Thermal grease: MX-4 (last time changed it 4 months) ago.

I don't have any overheating issue. I tested my PC in linx 0.6.5 benchmark with AVX for one hour and nothing happened. This issue occurs randomly.
I had similar issue 5 month ago (random freezing), but I bought I new PSU and issue somehow stopped. Now It's started again so I think PSU wasn't the case. I haven't played any heavy games for past 5 months. Issue started when I bought GTA V for PS, although last time it crashed when I wasn't even in game.

+12 = 12.320
+4 = 5.120

It's there, but I think it is not much different than before. Still no PSU, CPU cooler and No Anti virus. You have to have an Antivirus.
