Motherboard failure?

jcastro_805

Whenever I run a game or a benchmark after a few minutes my PC will crash and I have to wait a few minutes before I can restart it and it works. I have updated the motherboard BIOS, updated to all of the latest drivers, verified that there is no malware on my system, ran memtest and my RAM passed, ran Crystal Disk and my Hard Drive was fine, replaced the power supply, replaced the RAM, replaced the power supply, had my GPU sent to Gigabyte for RMA, and they sent it back and said that they tested it twice and there was no problem with it. Is there anything else that could have failed that I should test, and if not is it the motherboard that is the problem?

 

CPU: Core i7 2600

Motherboard: ASRock Z75 Pro3

GPU: Gigabyte Windforce R9 290x

Power Supply: EVGA 850G2

I would assume you got the BSOD, do you have the error code displayed on the blue screen?

And do you have any overclocks in place?

Reinstalled windows?

I have reinstalled Windows several times. There are no overclocks anywhere in the system. Error code is sometimes MEMORY_MANAGEMENT and sometimes PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. The last two errors that I have received were CACHE_MANAGER information that I have found seems to point to a RAM issue but like I said I have verified that the ram isn't the issue

In this case, yes, it is most likely to be a motherboard issue, although it still could be the CPU, but I have never heard of anyone having a faulty CPU in a long time, and given I've found some bad Asrock mobo reviews, it seems to indicate that the motherboard is the issue. However, I am not completely sure of it, it just seems the most likely at this point.

I have stress tested my CPU for over an hour and there were no issuesso I'm going to go ahead and replace the motherboard

I have an Intel stock cooler for the CPU and a 200mm fan in the front of my case and a 140mm fan in the back

front fan blowing in and rear out?............ check page file. increase it by twice recommended. i use the same number for minimum and maximum.

 

try without any page filing. maybe the ram you have will keep up with swaps and it won't be looking to the drive for help.

 

did you ever do a cmos reset?

 

run with side removed from case?

 

go into the overdrive section of the CCC and set manual fan speed to run at 42%. ( your graphics card )
