Hey guys, 

 

So pc is hanging whenever I game or do a lot of things all at the same time. 

 

Examples:

- Playing

  • League of Legends 
  • Fallout 4
  • Lords of the Fallen
  • Trackmania Canyon

-Prime 95

-OCCT Linpak CPU test

-OCCT CPU test

 

I've run memtest and there were no errors. no psu errors on OCCT, ran Video Memory Stress Test and it failed, Fumark ran for 22 minutes (with a nvidia gtx 960) before hangin, but temp stabilised around 68 degrees celsius. I swapped out the GTX 960 for an AMD HD 6870 and it still continued to hang.

 

Was refered here by usasma over in Windows Crashes, BSOD, and Hangs Help and Support, here is the link to that https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/667754/pc-hangs-after-high-gpu-load/?p=4421723 (all the results of the tests are over there too)

 

Here is my setup https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/QXstm8

 

There are also some sound issues, where the sound card was crackly, but when I removed it to put the HD 6870 in after putting it back the sound card wasn't recognized, and the mobo sound also doesn't work, all you hear is crackling (mobo drivers have been updated)

 

I'm super confused at this point, hoping you guys can give me a hand. Thanks muchly!

So basically the only components not tested are the HDDs, SSD and the Motherboard?

Have you tried running your cards in any of the other PCIe ports to see if the issue continues? Can you try your graphics card in a known good PC? My initial fear is that the motherboard is going bad.

Sorry, I did test the HDDs with the Seagate Seatools for Windows option, and they both passed. Don't know how to test the SSD. 

 

The HD 6870 went in a different port than the GTX 960 (both hanged). As far as I know the GPUs work fine, the HD6870 was used but the guy just upgraded, had no problems with it. Same with the 960

CrystalDisk is my SSD test of choice.

 

To me it sounds like the motherboard is on it's way out. If your RAM is fine, and the GPU functions okay in a known-good PC then that would be my guess. I can let others chime in too, it's not a terrible idea to have a second opinion when it comes to a motherboard. Especially since finding one to test your components with is nearly impossible.

Okay so Crsytal Disk said the SSD was fine, I'll see if I can check my GPU in my roommate's PC just to be sure. Will start looking, will wait for a second opinion to buy though. Thanks for your help!
