I'm losing my mind here and really need some help. A few weeks ago I shorted a sata port and been trying to assess damage ever since. At first everything seemed fine, but then games started restarting randomly on me, although some games seem to be totally fine. Currently one game rarely makes it past the loading screen without restarting my computer. When it restarts, there is no blue screen even if I tell it not to automatically restart. In the beginnging I was getting a few bluescreens but they all had different error messages. Looking in the event viewer just shows the unhelpful 41l Kernel-Power error code.
I've tried anything and everything I can think of and am in serious need of help. Please and thank you!
Things I've tried:
Replaced: PSU, Motherboard, Case (not that it matters)
Tests: MemTest86, SeaTools for HDD, Windows chkdsk, FurMark, HotCPU
Reinstall Windows 10, turn off all audio drivers but one on all of them, boot with each stick of RAM individually
All tests passed, no errors found on any of them. I have not seen GPU or CPU temp beyond 70.
Games that crash: Dishonored 2, HOTS
Games that I cannot get to crash at all: Deus Ex Human Revolution
msi z97 gaming motherboard
intel i7 4770k
corsair rm 750
corsair h80i watercooler
