I'm not sure this is the exact problem, but recently I have been getting a BSOD while playing Black Ops 2. It's extremely random, and it seems as if it's a driver issue. I am not sure however, and I was able to take a screen shot of the information from the BSOD with blue screen viewer. I'm a little scared that it's maybe the GPU but certain things are telling me otherwise.
It's not an actual blue screen. What happens is I'll be playing and then randomly the system will hang, and my music while get all distorted and play continuously. There was one time this happened and the system recovered and Black Ops 2 was not responding. The reason why I don't think it's my graphics card is because I play other demanding games like Far Cry 3, GW2, and Crysis all fine. For some reason BO2 has been shutting down. I checked the forums, and I checked other websites as well, and I'm beginning to think it's a driver issue
This is the BSOD information I received from Blue Screen viewer
AMD Phenom 965 Deneb Black Edition Overclocked to 4.0 GHZ
Undervolted to 1.48
Corsair Vengeance 16GB Ram
32GB Sandisk Ready Cache SSD
Very Old 250GB Hitachi Drive (7200 rpm)
Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB Drive (7200 rpm)
Coolermaster Hyper 212 PLUS
Asus M5A99X EVO Motherboard
The other weird thing is that my cache drive loses all it's cache during the restart, and the system get's really slow. I'm thinking it could be the cache drive too. I have yet to take out the cache drive and play for an extended period of time with the cache drive out.
About 5 minutes ago I used Furmark benchmark software to do a burn-in test for my GPU. I ran that for about 5-10 minutes and my GPU stayed at a solid 75 degrees celsius while running the bench software at 30fps. My gpu was maxed out for a very long time, and this bench software is far more taxing on my gpu than black ops will ever be.
Any help, ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I would love to get to the bottom of this. I'm hoping it's not my GPU because I recently purchased it, and I'm hoping my original assumptions of it being a driver issue are what's actually wrong.
Thank you for your help. If there is anything additional that you need from me let me know what you request and I'll get it for you.
