 System File Check

Please try following:
  • Open an admin command prompt
  • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
  • When it finished reboot your system
  • Open again an admin command prompt
  • Enter sfc/scannow again
If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note

MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

I think I have a fair guess as to what the problem is. Your motherboard is listed on this site ( to have a maximum power limit of 95 watts to the cpu. The FX-6300 needs exactly 95 watts. I have a very similar motherboard with the exact same power limits as the one you listed as a component of your system, and I have been experiencing crashes quite often in games. It can supply enough power for everyday tasks or low-intensity games like minecraft, but it is hard pressed to work well for later titles. My best recommendation is to either get a new motherboard or go into the bios, find the CPU jumper configuration(usually under advanced), turn everything to auto and disable AMD Turbocore. If that doesn't work, you could try looking into adjusting the Load-Line Calibration under the same settings, but I do not recommend it. Do your research on LLC! It counter-acts power deficiency in the cpu, but can increase temperatures and very quickly kill the processor if you are not careful. I personally would not go over 50%, but you should leave it on auto if you do not want to risk it. It is extremely frustrating, and I have yet to find a permanent solution that workd over extended periods of time and does not involve replacing the motherboard, but there could be another answer. Best of luck, and I hope this helps!
