I tried to stress test my 7700k that is cooled with a nh-d15. The test peaked at 72 C and eventually failed. It is not overclocked.

I would try another stress testing program to determine if there is an actual issue first. If it crashes in another stress program or normal PC use I'd think there was an issue.

- Your temps are not high enough to cause thermal shutdowns.

- How did it fail? Did it: BSOD, black screen, completely shut off, reset, crash to desktop?

- What is your motherboard? If it is lower end the VRM may be to blame for heavy load crashes.

- What is your power supply? If it is a lower tier power supply like certain Corsair or Thermaltake < 750 watts the PSU could be to blame.

It just said Stress test failed- hardware failure detected and stopped.
My motherboard is the Asus Rog Z270-E
My psu is the Corsair RM750x.
Are these normal temperatures?
Thank you.

- No glaring part incompatibilities noted.

- Consider running just the AIDA64 memory stress test. If that fails, run MEMTEST to see if the RAM is defective.

- Ensure the RAM timing in BIOS is 15-15-15-36 and 1.35V

- Run specific stress tests one at a time to isolate the area of failure. Unsure which tests were run.

Sorry for the vote down, it was a mistake and I don't know how to fix it but for some reason in the bios it says 15-15-36 (ras# pre not showing up but I heard it's normal) and in memtest it says 15-17-17-35 and I don't know how to fix it. And in memtest it says xmp 3ghz but I set it to auto. BTW still running the test and I'm in the 9th test with 220 erorrs.
Thank you

I would reset the CMOS and set the RAM back to it's natural speed and then try MEMTEST86 again using the stock non overclocked speed for that RAM if you have any XMP overclocks on your RAM. It it passes with no errors, see if you can use the PC.

If MEMTEST is giving you over 1000 errors then your memory when it's running with no overclocks at it's rated speed of 3000Mz, it is probably defective. I would try another stick of DDR4 RAM to verify this if you have one. If not, I would RMA the RAM stick.

I tried to stress test my 7700k that is cooled with a nh-d15. The test peaked at 72 C and eventually failed. It is not overclocked.
I had similar issue like yours recently with my new pc. When i run AIDA64 my pc failed stress cache test couple times and BSOD for twice, crashsing MOST of my games after few minutes playing. i had corsair psu with more than enough power to boot my pc even with dual vga, Intel i7 processor, an Asus motherboard and two Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 8GB 2400MHZ PC21300 ram (which you guys know they will cost a fortune to build a pc like that). I was going crazy and at first i think it was my SSD failed. Turns out it was my RAM that didn't configured perfectly in the bios. so i experimented few settings and then i finally fix my problem. Here's what i did. First i make sure the psu is great or at least healthy enough with all the cable connected properly and then i entered the bios screen. Before you're trying what i did, you must know your ram specification because you need to configure your ram with your own settings (don't follow my settings if you had different spec of ram).

Here is the step that i did:
1. I MANUALLY set the RAM frequency to the stock freq, (usually 2400mhz for ddr4 ram). DO NOT set the settings to AUTO because it will grant your motherboard to control the frequency dynamically which can make the freq goes lower than it should be.

2. I changed the ram voltage control from automatic to manual (the reason is the same as before). Again, this step is very important. I changed the voltage to 5% higher than the requirement (1.200v to 1.260v), if you had 1.5v ram, then changed it to 1.575v. Don't try to raise it more than 10% or you'll risking your hardware. Then i save the configuration and restart the pc. I retest my pc with AIDA64, playing games and viola! my problems are gone and no BSOD anymore.

For those who had similar problems like mine, i hope this works for you. Have a good day!
