Hello. I have been having this for 2 days now. The issue is that the computer freezes, but only after 10-20 minutes after playing a game. Even a low-end game, doesn't have to be demanding.
What happens is the PC completely freezes requiring a hard shutdown, won't react to reset button.
I already ran memtest for 8 hours, found no errors. Stressed the GPU with furmark , nothing. Stressed CPU and also nothing.
I reinstalled windows thinking it's a software issue, but it's hardware.
Here's some errors I had before reinstalling -
•A BSOD saying "Uncorrectable hardware error"
•Another BSOD saying "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" Also 0x124
•And many PC freezes when playing games with audio loops.
Also I forgot to mention that sometimes, after freezing and rebooting it will freeze either in windows or in the loading screens rarely in BIOS.
My specs :
•Windows 7 Ultimate
•GTX 670 Direct CU II 2GB - GPU
•I5 2500k Not overclocked - CPU
•BallistiX 4x2 GB kit 1600MhZ - RAM
•Asus P8Z77 V LE PLUS - Motherboard
•500GB WD Blue - HDD
•Seasonic S12 II 620W - Power Supply
It could potentionally be the motherboard since when installing a new cooler ( after I installed it , the freezes started happening ) I placed the motherboard on my METAL CASE, it moved around on it and maybe got shorted.. There are no swollen capacitors or anything like that though.
What I tried :
•Memtest86 for 4 passes and 8 hours, 0 errors.
Any help is appreciated, I really want to solve this since I built this PC for gaming, and everything it can do right now, is all BUT gaming.
I've done all the simple things. No dust anywhere, re-seated all the hardware, re-applied thermal paste, re-seated the CPU, installed drivers and so on.
I'm not getting any BSOD's atleast for now, because I'm not playing anything unless it's to test if a suggestion worked to fix the issue.
