  1. Hi! Recently I've been getting frequent "memory_management" BSODs while gaming. I ran the built in Windows memory checker and it almost instantly said that hardware problems has been found. This sounds to me like a memory issue. I tried resetting my CPU OC to stock but OCCT still prompted a BSOD. Before I go try to RMA my memory, I'd just like the confirm this is a memory issue. Thanks!
  2. You should play while plugged in and on high performance. That'll ensure you're getting the best performance. Your battery will be fine as long as it's not plugged in 24/7.
  3. It could be a CPU error. I have a pretty high OC so maybe I need to stress test it again. Thanks for the advice!
  4. Sounds like thermal throttling to me. What are the temps like when you're gaming? Does it instantly drop or does it spike up to boost clock then drop soon after?
  5. You're definitely ok. Worst case scenario you have to manually type in 3000 mhz for the memory clock in bios. Remember that the default speed is 2133 so if you want to run at higher speeds you have to set it in bios.
  6. That just means that the board probably doesn't have a default profile for 3000mhz. That means that you can run the RAM at 2933 or manually set it to 3000 without a problem.
  7. The mobo you linked supports DDR4 @3200mhz and 2933 so you'll be fine.
  8. No, it was just MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, not video memory.
  9. I don't think I've downloaded anything recently besides updates to games. I'll try chkdsk though.
  10. I'll try replugging in some mobo cables and turning off the overclock to see if that works. Thanks for the help!
  11. Hi, I was playing Battlefield 1 when I suddenly got a MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD. I ran the windows memory diagnostic tool and sure enough it reports that there's a hardware problem. Trying to join a game in Battlefield 1 consistently landed me with either a game crash or a BSOD. I reseated my RAM, 2 sticks of 8gb Corsair Vengeance LPX running at the advertised 3000 mhz, ran the tool again, and it still said there's an issue. My build is 2 years old and I've gotten MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSODs in the past (like a year ago) but this is the first time I've run memory diagnostic and gotten a hardware error message. Is this definitely a RAM problem? If so, what do I need to do to fix it? I'm still under warranty so I can get replacements, but if I can avoid it that's preferable. Thanks in advance and don't hesitate to ask for more information!
  12. What FPS are you running at? Is it a stable 144 FPS? If it is, try capping the framerate at a little over 144 FPS so that your GPU doesn't have to work to push out frames you don't need.
  13. Hi! I have a friend who needs a new laptop for school. His budget is 600-800 USD and it will be used mainly for school (notes, web browsing, etc., and maybe light video editing and gaming). He doesn't care about brand or OS. Any recommendations are appreciated. Thanks!
