Windows 7: Deadlock Freeze, NO BSOD When Gaming / Lots Of Chrome Tabs

Deadlock Freeze, NO BSOD When Gaming / Lots Of Chrome Tabs


I am experiencing complete deadlock freezes (caps lock/scroll lock doesn't change) when doing anything semi intensive on my computer.

This is a brand new PC with specs in my profile.

Some quick details:
No Sound Stutter
No Event Logs Except "Event 41 - Kernel Power" logs AKA Power Button

My last recorded temps before freeze (Running GTA V):

My event viewer:
Gyazo - c1c100c7cbc119358262e677830c6c28.png

What I have done so far:
Updated Windows 7 with latest updates
Reinstalled Video drivers (Completely wipe and reinstall)
Reinstall chipset drivers
Reinstalled audio drivers (I tried Realtek, Nvidia)
Disables Nvidia Audio Drivers and only left realtek drivers going
Updated my Ram to run 9-9-9-24 vs BIOS having 10-10-10-27
Windows Memory Diagnostics Showed No Problems with 6 Standard Passes on RAM

Any ideas?

The temperatures screenshot gives 404 error.

And those are a lot of errors for a brand new PC. Do you know what causes them and you are fine with them?

Here is what mine looks like (over 9 days):

Deadlock Freeze, NO BSOD When Gaming / Lots Of Chrome Tabs-application-log-error-warning.jpg

11 warnings due to my AV not releasing the registry hive while restart/shutdown (known issue, considered design feature by company reps)
Event 16 - caused by Adobe Reader DC while shutting down - known, will be fixed in the next patch
Event 100 - Iexplore crashing after uploading a file to SevenForums, have to learn why exactly (seems it doesn't crash if I close from the x up top, only when clicking close this window)

Run memtest86 overnight.
You should first try resolving OS issues before playing with RAM timings. Pull it back to default and also either decrease multiplier (1066-1333 Mhz) or change to unganged mode (1600 Mhz).
Run CoreTemp and keep an eye on temps, in case the thermal wasn't applied properly.

You can upload to the forums, no need to use 3rd party sites. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Yeah, I know the errors are from Razer software, and On Off charge usb and the constant restarts. So I think the issue might have been solved, no true test yet but I went into bios and disabled all the power saving and "Cool n Quite" along with disabling turbocore technology and finding that one of the two front fans is disconnected. I will update in a day or two of heavy use to make sure that was the fix.

Ok 2 days with No freezes, my 2 week nightmare seems to be over. I think it was something in the BIOS settings, one of the power saving options on the CPU .

It may be the Cool & Quite feature, downclocks the CPU and voltage when it is idle.
