I had a thread on this issue in past, and I thought I had solved it through rolling back all CPU overclocking settings in BIOS, but the issue has started reappearing, so the cause is apparently different.

When playing a simulation game I have installed, it begins to stutter, then freezes about 10-15 seconds later. If I manage to exit the simulation before it completely freezes, Windows then displays various BSoD errors (two I have noted are KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION). After the PC reboots itself following these BSoD, it can't detect the SSD in BIOS, so I have to power the PC down and then start it again.

As it seems like at least the first of these error messages is due to something related to RAM/SSD, I have done some checks on them: chkdsk, the Intel Rapid Storage Technology software, Windows Disk Manager and the SMART test via "wmic diskdrive get status" command all say my SSD is healthy; and Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool says the RAM is doing fine. I tried physically swapping RAM sticks to test each of them for problems - no effect.

I tried running Driver Verifier and removed some drivers that were causing further BSoDs and freezes upon logging in to Windows, but it still didn't solve this problem.

I've also done the sfc /scannow scan, checked that all drivers are up-to-date, and done malware and virus scans. No issues detected anywhere. Windows page file is also set to automatic.

I also need to mention that this issue started appearing some months ago, whereas it didn't occur with the simulation game before then. So it's more likely a software issue than hardware failure (if I'm approaching it with the correct logic).

I reset Windows installation and the issue went away for a couple of gaming sessions, but it just came back during another one.
