  1. * Asus Maximus Formula Motherboard
    * Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
    * Corsair Dominator Dual Channel PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz Memory (2 x 2048MB)
    * ATI Radeon HD 6870
    * Corsair 500w PSU
    * 1x Patriot Pyro 120GB SSD
    * 1x Western Digital 500GB Hard Drive WD5000AAKS-75A7B0
    * 32x LG DVD Burner
    * Flash Card Reader/Writer Internal Bay Drive
    * E-Blue Keyboard
    * E-Blue Mouse

    I have tried updating drivers and formating pc several times now.
    Memtest did 12 passes no errors. spinrite on wd drive showed no errors
    ssd health is good. Changed GPU from a 5770. Tested PSU.
    prime95/furmark can both run for 6 hours no issues.
    I've tried to apply the Microsoft hotfix but its not compatible.

    There may be out of date drivers at this time but before I try to do anything
    I'm starting with an almost fresh install. The bsod only comes up when wife plays
    league of legends and still only happens rarely.

    This system was stable up till about 2 weeks ago. Then constant issues...

    The power supply may be a bit weak for the video cards now

    Psu's like 1 year old. I'm pretty confident its fine since the error was also with the 5770 which runs max 108 watts. I'll swap it out with a spare I have. still think it's related to something else. Wouldn't furmark crash the system at 6 hours.. thats seriously way more demanding then league.

    168 watts for the 6870.

    Try disconnecting the WD 500GB drive and see if the computer will stabilize

    This dump files from last night after changing psu but before disconnecting hd.
    Will see if it crashes today.

    /edit
    Well less then 10 min I'd assume from having hd disconnected I got this..

    /edit
    just got this one from machine idling.

    This instability is still being caused by your video card or it's driver

    It's a dx diag notation in the minidump showing with general boot drive corruption from the blue screens. DX Diag errors happen with video or sound problems. Because your problems with game play, video problems stand out here
