Hello everyone, I've been desperate for days on end for this issue to just stop (like wishing away a nightmare), but it just doesn't, and I have tried every solution I could find on google.
OS - Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, but I have another partition with Vista Ultimate on it just in case I need to access the files on my current partition. I recently did an upgrade, bought an FX-4320 and 8 gigs of ram (hyperx 1866 mhz), on an ASRock 960GC-GS FX and a MaxCUBE 500w real power psu. The thing is, it all went fine for the first days, even when the cpu had the subpar stock cooler that came in the box (and I put an aftermarket one shortly thereafter), all games ran great, no system crashes, no bsods.
And one day suddenly I get a BSOD with the message SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION, and the next one SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED. I spoke with some friends and they all advised me to get a clean reinstall, and so I did, and much to my dismay, the bsods actually multiplied.
All my google searches pointed towards abnormal gpu drivers installations, and I followed the gpu driver CLEAN REINSTALL, in safe mode and all. Tried playing some games, bsod again.
I have three main suspicions:
1. My PSU can't handle the new components and shuts down - highly unlikely, my pc ran flawlessly for the first few days
2. GPU overheat? Even when playing Dota 2 which is not such a demanding game, the gpu heat ramps up to 65+ degrees
3. This one might be a long shot, but after the new os installation, since I had to move to another house, I purchased a wireless adapter and of course, installed its drivers. Although it seems highly unlikely, it is the only new hardware change up to this point.
Please help, I have not encountered these many issues at once in my whole life and I've been a pc user since more than a decade.
