  1. I've been having these entirely random crashes recently. They don't crop up while I play CPU/GPU intensive games. But just randomly as I watch or listen to youtube, read an article etc.

    CPU temperatures have been monitored. Whatever dust there was inside and underneath, has been removed.

    Components:
    MB: MSI Z170A M9 Ack
    CPU: Intel i7 6700K (clocked down to the base 4.0ghz, to troubleshoot if it's the clock)
    GPU: Geforce 1080 GTX
    RAM: 2x8GB DDR3 RAM
    Disk1: OCZ Revodrive 3x2 (240GB) PCIe SSD for Windows and main software.
    Disk2: Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD (SATA), for games etc
    PSU: Corsair AX1200i

    I have a minidump file attached as well.

    I'd be very happy for any help or tips. Thank you for reading this.
