Again I will say this did happen after upgrading cpu, however my memory was incompatible with my motherboard and old cpu. so it might have bricked the sticks and caused some kind of fault seeing as all the errors point to 'probably caused my memory_corruption'

can you share the minidump reports each time you crash, one of them might actually point at a driver name.

I see memory corruption in almost every BSOD I see to point I don't comment on it anymore. It can be result of drivers giving wrong commands/data.

I ran the dump files through the debugger and got the following information: https://jsfiddle.net/0a86qz7j/show This link is for anyone wanting to help. You do not have to view it. It is safe to "run the fiddle" as the page asks.

All goods, did another system restore and did no driver updates, still crashing regularly which is great. I'm almost positive it has to be cpu but at the same time im clueluess

Okay so I have just found out that my cpu is running at 4.33GHz when the base is set to 3.20. Apparently its overlocked itself as I swear on my life I havent touched it. Could this be the reason im crashing so much. As in its perma-overheating or something

how do you even overclock a non K CPU? especially on a H motherboard...

I can see uncore as 4300 here. https://valid.x86.fr/y7h1na

Its below max turbo clock of 4.6 so not a worry.

I have a few bsod to catch up on.

Can you run this for me - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/pages/bsodcollectionapp/
It makes a zip file, can you upload that like the dumps.
it might help figure out cause. none of the errors that gardenman has converted so far, were obvious.

I think I got all of the dumps. A few of them you posted twice. Then some in the sysnative file were not posted elsewhere.

well, it sure blames them for one of them.

and I assume rusclient is a game so we could blame nvidia for those as well.

what CPU did you have before the 8700?
What make model is PSU?
Changing hardware in systems can upset balance and might cause other gear that was on limit to fail.

I will look at sysnative later, its 4am and I should crash.

Recently started streaming my gaming content as a result i decided to upgrade my CPU to the i7 8700
What did you have before the 8700, or did I misunderstand and you got an entirely new PC?

I wonder if I am being blind again. All BSOD happened after you replace CPU? Only looking for a driver solution

Try running this on CPU - https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/19792/Intel-Processor-Diagnostic-Tool

crash on 18th mentions DirectX, the 2 since both could be CPU. Hence my test above.

Almost every review I find of that PSU make is don't buy it, so it could also be the cause. A bad heart )PSU) can lead to all sorts of issues. I don't normally suggest blind replacements though. Maybe only when I don't know PSU brand and have to go looking for reviews.

PSU are one of the 2 items in PC its almost impossible to test. There are ways but they aren't ideal.
the paper clip method - https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/what-is-the-paperclip-method-of-testing-a-psu.1336402/

or multimeter,

or in the BIOS to check the +3.3V, +5V, and +12V. - https://www.lifewire.com/power-supply-voltage-tolerances-2624583

Ran this previously, had no issues. Running again to be sure. I did a clean install. Turned off windows updates, downloaded only the nvidia graphics and physx driver and i was running for another week with no bsods. But as soon as im streaming a new game, crashes.

i7 8700 - CPU Tested out okay
GPU Nvidia 1660 - crashes appear tied to GPU drivers?
16gb DDR4 Corsair 3200 - Have we run memtest?
PSU 550w - replaced with 800, still BSOD
motherboard - Gigabyte H310M-H

I helped someone who was told that running VGK.sys on systems where you have 3200 ram running in XMP can cause BSOD. I am not sure its true but thought I would mention it.
