Any of you know a good alternative to afterburner?

I had a custom curve for GPU fan since its defective (freaking RTX 2080 garbage) so I had to run it slightly higher RPM than the automatic curve (does a mechanic krrrrt sound every 3 seconds otherwise)

And I got the MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION just now too
This time it didnt went straight to BSOD, the whole screen freezed and it made a "brrrrrrrrrr" sound from my speakers for about a minute before it went to BSOD

Guys what do you think I should do?

Im not sure if I should try warranty for my CPU, or to reinstall Windows

But it REALLY shouldnt be a software issue since I havent done anything since this all started, as I mentioned, it all began with when my CPU fan error started, it really feels like a hardware problem

I ran the dump file through the debugger and got the following information: https://pste.eu/p/YaQC.html

File information:042319-16640-01.dmp (Apr 23 2019 - 07:02:14)
Bugcheck:MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION (9C)
Probably caused by:intelppm.sys (Process: System)
Uptime:0 Day(s), 3 Hour(s), 30 Min(s), and 45 Sec(s)

Check Windows Update history for any recent driver updates.

This information can be used by others to help you. I can't help you with this. Someone else will post with more information. Please wait for additional answers. Good luck.

it just means it is not AI suite.

Have you updated the BIOS as the dump file isn't showing any BIOS info and that is usually a indication that the bios version is old. I recall you saying you are on 0903.

the program that closed is the intel processor driver that comes with windows

look under chipset here, perhaps download latest IMEI and Intel Chipset driver version V10.1.17809.8096_RS5 - update these once bios updated

hardware:
PSU: Seasonic.. good brand, no one is perfect but they close.
CPU :
  • Tested with IPDT, nothing found.
  • Prime95 getting FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4, is not so good though. Most of the people getting this are overclocked but you aren't. Solution seems to be to add voltage - and explanation of error and a solution at bottom:
The algorithm, in a rough sense, uses a transformation that produces floating-point results when a precise answer is an integer. So, each decimal result is rounded to the nearest integer, and the rounded-off decimal is a "rounding error" in the FFT algorithm. When results come out below nnn.4 or above mmm.6, it is obvious which way to round and the rounding error is considered "safe". But if a calculation comes out nnn.48, is the error 0.48 and should be rounded down, or is the error 0.52 and should be rounded up? The calculation is no longer trustworthy.

When the algorithm produces an error above 0.4, it repeats the particular calculation that produced the error. if the error is repeatable, it is a sign that the precision of the transformation is not high enough for the size of calculation being attempted, and a slower/larger/more precise transformation is then used to reduce error below the 0.4 cutoff. However, if the error is non-repeatable, the computer has a hardware error- calculations are no longer deterministic. This is where you're at.

Slow down the overclock, reduce heat (by cleaning out dust, improving airflow, routing cables better, reseating CPU heatsink with less thermal paste, moving the GPU a slot or two away from CPU, etc....), check memory for errors (e.g. with memtest86), or slow down the overclock. You ought to slow down the overclock first, though it may be the memory clock as the culprit rather than the CPU clock.

Memory: Have you run memtest?
Try running memtesst86 on each of your ram sticks, one stick at a time, up to 8 passes. Only error count you want is 0, any higher could be cause of the BSOD. Remove/replace ram sticks with errors.

Motherboard: - Fan errors? maybe cause is motherboard? Hard to test, so check everything else first. PSU is the same.

I dont know, I tried everything, still happens

The Fan error I got fixed a few weeks ago, I set the minimal RPM one step higher so the sensor actually sense the RPM, and that solved that issue

So im back to square one
