Question Encountering BSoD while using GPU intensive apps


Dec 8, 2014
I have been experiencing this for about 4 months.
It happens while I play games or launch any other application that puts the GPU to work.
5 minutes(or less) in the app, and my PC goes into a black screen state while the audio is stuttering, after about 10-15 seconds it restarts, but goes directly to the black screen, unless I change the PCI-E slot it won't display anything.
The only temporary fix I've found so far to be effective for a short period of time is swapping the PCI-E slot everytime I encounter the crash. It then works normally for around 1 week at most and it starts crashing again.
I tried reinstalling windows, tried a different game, I've reset the bios, nothing works.
Currently my components aren't overclocked, they are running at stock values.

PC Specs
OS: Windows 10 Pro x64-bit
BIOS Version: 7A37v17(same bios before the crashing began)
