  1. Alright I've had memtest86 running for the past 14 hours and it didn't show any errors so my ram appears to be alright. Could the motherboard be at fault?
  2. Well, at least you pointed me into the direction of RAM issues. I will let memtest86 do its thing overnight and see if my memory is faulty. TBH I may just RMA it even if memtest86 doesn't spit out any errors since I have basically swapped everything in this system except for the mobo, psu, cpu and ram. thanks for looking into this for me!
  3. Sorry, I forgot to mention that. I already analysed the dmp with whocrashed (sounds like bluescreenviewer is very similar to this) and it says ntoskrnl.exe crashed. Since that is just the Windows kernel that basically didn't tell me anything at all. Currently running memtest86 and I didn't have antivirus installed in today's Windows install
  4. I have had this issue for quite a while now and I haven't found a solution yet (obviously). Every once in a while (sometimes it doesn't occur for days, sometimes multiple times an evening), when I play a game, my machine will bsod with error code driver_irql_not_less_or_equal. I thought I had resolved the issue when I discovered a faulty mouse driver but I have since replaced all my peripherals and the issue still persists. I also read that a defective storage medium might be the issue but just today I swapped out my SSD for another one I had lying around and did a fresh install of Windows 10 on it. Still no improvement. CPU and GPU temps are well in check (around 45°C on the CPU, GPU maxing out at 77°C) so I don't think that's what's causing the problem. My CPU is overclocked to 4.6GHz @ 1.365V but I already tried removing the OC without any improvement. As far as I can remember I even swapped out the GPU without any improvement whatsoever. I'm really at a loss here so if anyone could take a look at the dmp file I included I would be eternally grateful.

  5. It's the tother way around, but okay.
  6. If you don't want to OC I wouldn't go with a 6600k. Get a 6500 or maybe a 6600 if you really need that extra few MHz and couple that with an H170 board.
  7. 60Hz means that the monitor can display a new image 60 times every second. If your PC now sends 70223454 fps (images per second) to the display, you will still only see 60 new images every second because that's the maximum your panel can physically display.
  8. What GPU do you have now and what is your budget?
  9. I really like my EVGA FTW card but the Galax HOF is absolutely marvelous as well.
  10. I know it sucks but trust me, you wouldn't want to pay for a thunderbolt keyboard.
  11. It's a little pricey, I know and the PSU is actually different than the one I have, but I love having all my media available on all my devices. If you want to save some money you could leave out the SSD (that's just in as a cache so file transfers to the machine are faster) or get a slightly lower power CPU.

  12. Sure, I'll be right back
  13. I don't have a parts list on hand but I could whip one up real quick.
  14. As for the process of actually copying the disks, I used MakeMkv and encoded them in adobe media encoder so I don't have to deal with 30GB per Blu-Ray.
  15. I actually did this with all my parents movies when I got my own place and I love my solution. I have a custom built NAS server running unRAID and it's working like a charm. I wouldn't recommend cloud storage since that high capacity plans are either not available from many providers or WAY too expensive.
