Hi. So long story short, my computer does a hard freeze (absolutely no response, sound becomes a constant buzzing) when I play certain games, specifically Riders of Icarus and Archeage. I can play Aion / DCUO / GW2 and SWTOR just fine for hours, but when playing Riders or Archeage, my computer always hard freezes in different time intervals, but almost always under an hour. Checking Event Viewer all I see is the Event ID 41 saying a kernel power issue, which doesn't help at all.
I did a re install of Win 10 on my computer, and I am still receiving this error. And it only ever happens playing those 2 games, so I am almost sure it's nothing OS related, and it must be hardware related. I ran a stress test on my computer and my CPU's temp rockets to 95c, which I know is an issue. I just don't believe that either of those 2 games would cause my CPU to stress so much that it would activate the fail safe bottleneck and then cause my OS to freeze. I am down to trying to see if it's a RAM / PSU / GPU issue. I am going to run MemTest tonight and see if that picks up anything. I don't think it's my gpu as it runs most other games fine, unless its dx11 causing the hangup (I believe both GW2 and SWTOR both use dx11 though). My GPU passed OCCT's stress test fine as well.
Is there anything else it might be?
