OS - Windows 8.1 x64 (8.1 associated with reports. Also used Win 10 and Ubuntu)
Brand new system
Multiple clean installs
i7 6700k - no overclock
EVGA 1080 - also used intel integrated graphics
Asus Maximus VIII Hero Alpha (3101 and 2202)
G Skill F4-3600C17Q-16GVK (running at 2133MHz)
Corsair RM750x power supply
I started building this system with Windows 10, and was experiencing increasing BSOD. I updated all drivers, disabled any unnecessary hardware, tried system restore, SFC, malwarebytes etc... Still BSOD. Tried multiple clean installs under multiple hardware configurations on each of the following drives: 950 Pro SSD, old samsung evo 256gb ssd, WD black 2TB hdd. No luck. I tried 1 stick of RAM at a time, and another set of ram. Ran memtest86 for 12 passes on both sets of ram with no errors.
Ran chkdsk on all disks with no errors.
Tested with a known working power supply.
Ubuntu seemed to work with the i7, and a Pentium G4400 also seemed to work with Windows 10 (same hardware otherwise), although, these were not tested for very long. Both were stress tested for a bout 24hrs which would usually produce a crash on 8.1 or 10.
Windows 10 also seems to have difficulty even installing. Sometimes I get a BSOD when installing, starting up, or just after signing in. Windows 8 installed without any errors. I am currently installing every possible update for Windows 8.1, and I will try to run Driver Verifier over the next couple of days.
I also just got another motherboard that I will test this weekend.
I will update as I go. If anything jumps out as a problem, please let me know.
UPDATE***: Just finished installing all updates for Windows 8.1, including the optional ones. Turned on Driver Verifier as instructed in the forums and got two IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSODs pretty quickly after signing in. I'll try to let it run overnight, and then upload the dmp files tomorrow.
