Hello. This is my 2nd post, I felt like making a new one with more details and information would be more useful than just editing the original one. The issue is that the computer freezes, but only after 10-20 minutes after playing a game. Even a low-end game, doesn't have to be demanding.
What happens is the PC completely freezes requiring a hard shutdown, won't react to reset button. And after it's shut down i will need to press the MemOK! Button cause it won't boot while it's on.
I already ran memtest for 8 hours, found no errors. Stressed the GPU with furmark , nothing. Stressed CPU and also nothing.
I reinstalled windows thinking it's a software issue, but it's hardware.
Here's some errors I had before reinstalling -
•A BSOD saying "Uncorrectable hardware error"
•Another BSOD saying "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" Also 0x124
•And many PC freezes when playing games with audio loops.
Also I forgot to mention that sometimes, after freezing and rebooting it will freeze either in windows or in the loading screens.
My specs :
•Windows 7 Ultimate
•GTX 670 Direct CU II 2GB - GPU
•I5 2500k Not overclocked - CPU
•Hyper X 4x2 GB kit 1600MhZ - RAM
•Asus P8Z77 V LE PLUS - Motherboard
•500GB WD Blue - HDD
•Seasonic S12 II 620W - Power Supply
It could potentionally be the motherboard since when installing a new cooler ( after I installed it , the freezes started happening ) I placed the motherboard on my METAL CASE, it moved around on it and maybe got shorted.. There are no swollen capacitors or anything like that though.
What I tried :
•Memtest86 for 4 passes and 8 hours, 0 errors.
At this moment after posting the thread I'll go check the HDD since in Event Viewer it said there are errors.
Any help is appreciated, I really want to solve this since I built this PC for gaming, and everything it can do right now, is all BUT gaming.
