Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 Pro version 1803, my system has lost stability. And as of the last several weeks, I've really been running into a good number of BSODs. Some of them run to completion (aka make a memory dump), some do not.
Typically they'll happen 5-10 minutes after playing some games (mainly Team Fortress 2 and Doom, both through Steam), like when I'm browsing the internet. Today, one just happened with the system idle, about 10 minutes after I turned it on, but before I got a change to log in.
I have run SFC Scannow without error, DISM without error, memtest86 without error. I have checked my hard disks and they seem to be ok.
My power supply is a Seasonic X650 Gold. I have had it since April 2011.
Prior to 1803, I was running a 4.0ghz overclock on my Xeon X5660, which was pretty much rock stable. Maybe 1-2 reboots in 6 months. Since running into the new BSODs, I have reset my BIOS to optimized defaults. My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0. I am on the latest bios, FH (which is quite old anyway).
I also upgraded from a GTX 660 to an R9 290 graphics card in February of this year. I have used DDU to uninstall drivers (in safe mode), and tried to find the most stable AMD driver. Other than that, I have not added any new hardware recently.
I tried running driver verifier per advice from this site and others, but it crashed quite early on (BSOD) so I wasn't sure what to do with that. I have done an in-place upgrade (repair install) of windows in the last week, which seemed to have no effect on stability.
Here is my Speccy link:
Speccy shows 2 Samsung monitors connected for some reason; it is my TV; not sure why it shows 2 of them.
Thank you in advance for taking a look and helping me solve this frustrating issue!
