Windows 7 64bit · Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? OEM · Age of system (hardware) All OEM parts of varying age. Oldest is 5 year old HDD. Mobo is next oldest at 3 years old. · Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 6 months was the last time I reformatted, it's installed on an SSD, while all other data/programs is kept on another SDD and an HDD · CPU intel I7 980x · Video Card Nvidia 680gtx · MotherBoard EVGA x58 Classified3 · Power Supply - 850watt modular Antec Quattro 850 · System Manufacturer OEM self built · Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom) I didn't start getting any BSODs until I installed the 680. Not sure if it's a faulty card, or just because the drivers are so new. About 7 months ago I had some BSOD issues with my Harddrives, due to them being in AHCI mode where my OS thought they were in IDE, but since then BSODs have been very rare and far between. They've occurred while playing games, or just while browsing the internet. My system can run fine for 10 hours, or BSOD after 5 minutes. It's not an over heating issue, as the the temp on the card never goes above 62c, even when fully stressed. Harddrives and solidstates have given me issues in the past, but. Hoping for an answer. Thanks! What I've tried so far: Fresh driver installs on everything from the GPU to the mobo. Reseated the GPU in another PCI slot and changed out the power cables with new ones. Stress tested the GPU with furmark for 2 hours, no BSOD. Tested memory for 10 passes, no issues there. Restored bios to default settings. Just about everything except a reformat, as Im trying to avoid it if it won't fix the issues. Formatting 3 harddrives is a pain, but I'll do if it deemed necessary.
