  1. I recently took apart my computer to do a thorough cleaning and improvement on my cable management. After I put my computer back together I got in any game and soon after starting it would crash, this escalated to getting the BSoD quite frequently even when I was only trying to log into windows. The error codes on the BSoD were always changing each time and this became a cycle of restarting until I turned off the computer. I tried taking my hardware out to localize the problem but nothing worked, not even reseating my cpu, gpu, ram, or taking out all my power connections and cleaning and putting them back in. I even did a factory reset on windows. killing all of my previous files. I found that once I turned off my OC that it fixed the problem, but once I turned it back on the BSoD persisted, I've used OC on this rig for a while but this is a new issue. I have just recently started using prime 95 as was recommended to me in an earlier thread. When I am not overclocking my cpu I can run it for a complete 12 hours and not have an issue. however once I start OCing things change. The smallest FFTs has no issues but once I use small and large FFts I get the hardware failure detected. The blending test does cause the failure as well. What does this mean? Do I need to test my ram and put different ram in my current system? Thank you for your help! Parts list: CPU: i5 6600k GPU: GTX 1070 MOBO: Asus Z170-A CPU Cooler: Kracken X61
  2. thank you everyone that has helped! I will be trying this tonight.
  3. test the memory? like put it in one of my buddies rigs and test it that way?
  4. ok, so how should I go about fixing an unstable OC?
  5. yes It's only when I'm overclocking, so what should I look for to see if it is an unstable OC? would taking the computer apart and putting it back together really cause that?
  6. I have reseated the memory several times, could the memory be damaged and only react when I am overclocking?

Is my motherboard partially broken or is this a software issue? I'd rather not have to get another motherboard but I'm guessing its what I'll have to do to get my OC back. Thank you for your help!

  8. I just took my PC apart to clean and improve cable management, now that I have it back together it's crashing after being in game for a min or two. This problem doesn't occur when I am watching anything on YouTube or am using any benchmark software, only once I start up a game. I tried taking my cpu cooler, ram, and gpu off and put it back on but the problem persists. The problem isn't bound to one game or launching software either. My cpu has been a bit wacky as well, some times the cpu usage will skyrocket and the fans will rev up and then it'll come back down. why did this happen?
  9. I generally play Overwatch on my pc but when I built my pc I was misinformed when I thought that my i5 6600k would make the cut. I am peaking at 90% usage on my cpu and am only getting around 90 to 110 frames. I've got a 1070 GPU that is not passing the 35% usage mark and 16 gigs of ram that is never more than at a 50% load.. What cpu should I upgrade to so I can get my full 144hz that my monitor is capable of? Or is there a way to get more out of my cpu besides overclocking, because the overclocking doesn't ever give it more than maybe 10 extra frames. I am wanting to be able to run max settings on OW and other blizzard games. Also my overclocking has been a bit weird lately, when I tell it to OC in BIOS, the loading screen that used to tell me that it's at 23% under the asus logo doesnt pop up any more and I don't know what too look for to see if my cpu is really overclocked. I have cpuz but I'm not sure what wil tell me if i'm overclocked or not.

  11. I got it working once I downloaded the software, thanks for the help.
  12. which ones are which? I haven't removed anything but where the fans were connected to the cable that had 3 spots to connect them with. everything else is as it came stock
