    Intermittent BSODs on Maximus VI Formula

    Hey Guys,

    I'm trying to solve an issue that has been haunting me since I built my new(ish) rig. Basically ever since I built it I've been getting random BSODs. The problem is it is so intermittent (3-4 a month) I have trouble testing specific configurations to eliminate hardware/software conflictions.

    At first I thought it may be my overclock so I set everything back to factory defaults but it continued to happen. Next I thought that my SLI video cards were the issue so I pulled one out and reinstalled my video drivers, but the BSODs still came. Even with the overclock active I can stress test my CPU and GPUs just fine without a BSOD. I'm not sure what I should try next, but whatever it is I'll have to live with it for a week or two until my next one.

    Hardware:
    Core i7 4770k @4.2 GHz
    Maximus VI Formula
    Corsair H100i
    Corsair Dominator Platinum (16GB)
    GTX 780 Ti (x2 SLI)
    Creative X-FI Titanium
    Corsair RM 1000 (PSU)
    Intel 120GB SSD
    Samsung 500GB SSD
    WD 1TB Black HDD
    ROG Front Base
    Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra (Case)

    In addition I have 6-7 USB 2/3 devices (mouse, keyboard, gamepad, webcam, TrackIR, etc...).

    Any advice on what I should try from here would be much appreciated.

    Download and run Memtest86+ to see if your BSODs are memory related. Minimum let it finish 1 pass.

    First impression, you're running twin 780Ti's on a 1000W PSU?
    Are you saying that you still experienced BSOD's with only one card installed?

    Have you checked windows event viewer logs and also looked at the dump log files?

    Yes, I still experience the BSODs with only one card. I'm probably close to what the PSU can handle with both cards running, but I can stress test just fine without BSODs.

    As far as event logs, I had two events at the same time for the last BSOD:
    • Critical, Kernel-Power, Description: The system rebooted without cleanly shutting down first.
    • Warning, Kernel-PnP, Description: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ACPI\PNP0A0A\2&daba3ff&2.


    I tried Googling on the Kernel-PnP Warning, but didn't find too much related to me.
