Mobo is z97
Gpu is gigabyte 1080 founders
4 sticks of 16gb corsair platinum
Forgot what cpu I have. It's an older i7 though. Pretty sure the 6800

I was gaming and my game froze. Which is really strange because usually if I freeze I can close the game somehow still or it's a crash. This time it froze pretty hard to the point I forced my pc off by holding the off button.

Now I get the blue screen but it's during the welcome screen BEFORE it loads the login screen. Sometimes it'll try to load before a second or so freeze and then a restart and sometimes it's only up for a half a second.

I've tried
-restarting my mobo.
-restarting my pc and reinstalling windows (fails.)
-auto repair (fails.)
-safe mode.
-I've removed everything and made sure it's firmly in place.
-system restore and go back to previous version fails.

When I restart my pc I hear 3 rapid beeps. I've read somewhere 3 beeps is usually ram but they're fast beeps and ram fine. I've taken 2 out and switched them up a few times just in case.

I can also see codes (I'm assuming.) On my mobo but they go by pretty fast.

I'm catching. 4f, B2, 9c (where it beeps,) and a2. Also I see the number 71 each time but I'm not sure if it means anything at all.

This happens immediately after restart.

I use my pc hours a day and I would love some help. If there's any other places I can contact for help please let me know.

Last thing. My gpu is custom water cooled (I bought my pc used and built 3 years ago.) and after inspecting it closely today I did notice a very small amount of sky blue and chalky substance. Is that bad or some sort of adhesive/coolant. Sorry if I sound dumb.

Thanks in advanced and I'll try my best to respond asap.

It's more than likely you have a bad memory module.
