PC crashed out of nowhere (without a BSOD)

Hey guys.

So my PC crashed out of nowhere when I was looking at the CPU temperatures on HWMonitor, without a Blue Screen of Death. The same thing happened when I was playing Cyberpunk 2077 a month ago, but in between that, I never experienced it again. I went to View reliability history and I found this. And I think that it wasn't my CPU because it the temperatures were around 40C.

 

I hope someone will know what has happened.

Do you have any overclocks applied?

Try looking around in windows Event Viewer for errors at that time. It might give you a clue as to what happened. However a lot of the time when I have had full system crashes there has been no easy explanation.

No. The only overclocked thing I have is the XMP profile fro my memory, but even that I had to underclock it a bit, since my pc was crashing when I ran my CPU's FLCK clock at 1800MHz. So I had my RAM running at 3466MHz instead of 3600 MHz it was rated.

It's a very generic error.

I would carefully reseat the ram, CPU, GPU, all connections to the motherboard and make sure they are nicely connected, check all the PSU cables and that the PSU itself is okay, is it a new PSU?

I had my PC for about 3 months or so, so the PSU is a bit new. I'll check if the connections with the components and the PSU are OK. I'll also let you guys know if this happens again.

I had checked all of the connections on my motherboard and it looks like they are ok. The whole PC with the power supply is not that old yet so I don't think that the PSU is faulty.

The only recent thing I did to my PC is upgrading the cooler that came with my processor to an AIO water cooler. Before that I didn't have that kind of problem before, except one time I played Cyberpunk 2077. I'm not to sure if the power supply is not capable giving enough power to my other components, but in theory it should be, since my PC needs 438W of power and my PSU can supply 750W. I'll leave my PC Part Picker part list here if it helps a bit.

Random thought, since it says a problem with the Kernal, try reseating all the SATA p/d cables while you're at it. One of them knocked slightly off can really affect things.

I do have some SATA powered devices on my PC (SATA SSD, an AIO water cooler and a RGB hub that came with my case). I'll reseat the SATA cables tomorrow cuz it's a bit late right now where I live. Thanks for the advice tho. I'll also let you guys know if I'll experience this problem again. So far it has happened again today, but much later in the day. And when it happened I wasn't doing anything really, just using my web browser.

So I reattached the SATA power cables and my PC crashed again a few moments after. I'm not really that sure what it's causing it, because my PC can run just fine even when I run Cinebench. It could be that I'm using a splitted SATA cable to power all of my SATA devices, but I'm not to sure. It seems like it just crashes randomly for no reason.

Did you do the same with your M.2?
With it not crashing while doing Cinebench: once it loads all the pieces it wants, it barely touches your drives. But just having the OS running is bouncing around all over the places of your drives. Just the same as playing a game.

I checked the m.2 SSD before and it seems like it was connected properly. But I will still try to reseat it tomorrow. I do also play some video games from time to time, but I mostly have them stored in my SATA drive. I usually stored programs like Photoshop or other Adobe programs on my m.2 drive.

I have also tried to connect the pump to other SATA connectors on the cable and I the PC would shut down even more frequently. I then plugged another SATA poewr cable to my power supply and used that to power my water cooler. So far there were no problems, but I feel like the PC can still crash. And I'm not to sure if this was just my luck or if a single SATA power connector wasn't sufficient to power all of my devices.

No luck. I reseated the m.2 drive and it still crashes randomly. I even got the BSOD error that time. Now I really don't know what's causing the problem.

I also used BlueScreenView to check for Dump files and I found 3 of them. Hopefully this also helps a bit. (Don't really know what is watchdog.sys)

i also checked the PSU voltages on HWMonitor while running Cinebench just in case. I'm not to sure, but I think  those are fine?

Edit: I also checked on my bios and it says that my +12 v rail is on 11.98 v. I do hope that I can be done with this soon, cuz I have alot of stuff to do rn for school that I really need my PC. And having it crashing out of nowhere just makes me a bit worried.

Reinstalling graphics card drivers didn't work. Reinstalled them a couple of hours before and the PC crashed again without BSOD.

So I have run some tests today. Mainly I ran Cinebench again, 3dMark and Heaven benchmark. And while my PC passed all of them, there was a really noticible coil whine when I ran 3dMark and Heaven benchmark. I could hear the coil whine from where I was sitting. So I think it could be a bad power supply. And I have contacted a store I know if I could borrow a power supply to try to fix it.

OK, so I got a new PSU. It's Corsair's RM850i. And after I installed it my PC, without putting the panels back on, it would boot up just fine. But when I was finished and cleaned everything my PC would just crash and reboot 3 times until Windows just booted to recovery.  I then went to my BIOS and resetted it to default settings and it booted up fine. I literary had nothing but the XMP for my RAM on. I haven't tested my PC that much, but I'll let you guys know if somethings up.

So yesterday, the day after I replaced the PSU, my PC didn't crash at all. I don't really know what happened right after I installed the new power supply, it could be that the BIOS thought that I was using the same PSU, but after that problem my PC ran fine. I pretty much used it lightily (video calls and youtube mostily) for about 8 hours and at the evening I ran 3dMark, Cinebench and Heaven, just to see if it's stable underload. After that I just put a long youtube video for about 4 hours and it didn't crash. I'm not to sure if it was the PSU that was faulty or it was something in my BIOS settings (since I had to reset my driver settings after I installed my new PSU). The only thing that I rebember having overcolcked is my memory at a lover speed than it was rated, because of the Infinity fabric clock. I'll probably put my memory settings back where they were tomorrow.

Ok, so my PC wasn't crashing for 3 days straight. But today I put on XMP settings back to what they were before and within a couple of minutes my PC crashed.
