I built my first PC a few months ago (parts list here https://pcpartpicker.com/list/R68ynn ), and it was working fine up until last week. I got my first blue screen while playing PUBG, it was a SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION which said nvlddmkm.sys was the problem, so I did a clean uninstall of the GPU drivers and reinstalled the latest. I then got another blue screen which said it was a problem with directx, and while trying to fix that I started getting other blue screens (don't remember exactly what the problem was with those). I ended up reinstalling Windows 10, which worked for a few days but I got my first BSOD on August 28th when launching the Destiny 2 PC Beta. I uploaded the crash dump on discord when trying to troubleshoot with a friend: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/317297830286852096/352212510604132359/082817-3562-01.dmp

I didn't really do anything after this one, thought it might have just been an issue with Destiny 2 since it is a beta after all. Then yesterday I got my second blue screen since windows reinstall, with a slightly different BSOD: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/317297830286852096/352626620437233665/083017-3625-01.dmp

Last night I ran memtest86, just a single pass of whatever the default test is (took approx 35 mins) and it came up clean. As far as I can tell, all of my drivers and windows updates are current. My bios is updated as well.

The only things I have installed currently are GPU and mobo drivers, EVGA Precision XOC, discord, OBS, steam, battle.net, chrome, various games (all through steam or battle.net).

I was initially using Precision for overclocking with +100 on the GPU clock and +500 on the mem clock (worked fine for months), but after crashing I removed it and continued to use Precision for only an aggressive fan curve. Temps have never gone above 70C at any point for GPU or CPU (well, CPU hit a max of 76C when running intelburntest but never under normal use).

Unfortunately I did not save any of the crash dumps from before I reinstalled windows. All blue screens occurred while gaming.

Any ideas on what to do from here? Thanks.

Thank you for the reply. I removed the overclocks after the first blue screen following Windows reinstall. I apologize for not being clear enough in my original post, but the latest crash occured without any overclock applied while playing Destiny 2 (I still had Precision open, but only for the fan curve). Is it still worth trying furmark?

I uninstalled precision and ran furmark twice back to back (because I forgot to screenshot the results the first time), here are my results: http://i.imgur.com/2BFk83H.png

Didn't crash, so I guess I will continue playing games without Precision until it happens again. The crashes seemed to come at random times so I'm not sure if this actually fixed anything.

If I happen to crash again while gaming, I will update. Thank you.

Update from previous post:

Unfortunately I am still crashing without Precision installed. I crashed after about 2.5 hours of gameplay. Latest crash dump here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1muygwlzc9nc4vk/083117-3468-01.dmp?dl=0

I guess it's time to pull my GPU and run furmark or something for a couple hours, not sure how else I can test it. Is there a way to tell if it's the video card OR the power supply that's causing the issue, if I stop crashing without the GPU?
