I recently finished my new gaming system build and after about 2-3 months, have been having intermittent freezes.
- No BSOD
- No slowness or other indicators that it is about to happen
- Everything simply freezes in place
- Sound if playing stops
- No response to input from keyboard or mouse
- Fans continue to run
- No smell or smoke from computer
This happens maybe 3-4 times a week and has no reason (that I can tell). Computer can be on for an hour or over 24. It appears to happen more often during heavy game play, but that could just be an appearance as it is the most frustrating time for it to happen. After a system freeze there are no windows event logs that indicate a problem, only that the computer recovered. Though to be fair I am not a pro at reading the finer details of said logs. I have also had no luck running my memory with XMP enabled which causes the crash to occur much faster. The memory does support XMP though.
Win 7 64bit SP1
16GB Corsair Vengeance memory
MSI X99A Gaming 7
2x MSI Nvidia GTX980 Ti
3x SSD (2- 128GB and 1- 500GB)
2 HDD (250GB and 750GB)
Event logs from today for the crash that most recently occurred
Speccy snapshot of my system
I have done a bit of light searching and found a user who had what appeared to be the same issue and followed along there and in the end found that it was a bad component, but only after it failed hard. So I am still at a loss on what else to do. Let me know what information is needed and I will be happy to get it.
Thanks for any help!
Edit: Realized there was more info in the speccy doc then i felt comfortable with. Here is a link with the details removed- http://speccy.piriform.com/results/OMkywKkzlFwB6xKVaZggQxV
