make sure you have the mb bios updated. there a lot of bios patches for asus mb and windows 8. make sure in the bios you have the asus mb running in standard mode not performance mode. changes the cpu to ram bus timing and can cause issues. in the bios make sure xmp profile is turned on. make sure if your mb have the mvp chipset it turned off and you did not install the software from the cd. the mvp from lucient will try to bond the intel ipgpu and your gpu to get higher frame rates. they have not worked all the bugs out of there hardware and software so it a crap shoot. with the gpu make sure you have a fan profile lie msi afterburner to make sure the gpu fan speeds up when it under load.
I'll definitely give it a try soon as I get home. Had my gf download and run memtest86 this morning and found 21 errors with memory. Taking my pc in tomorrow for checkup cause all my parts are still within warranty. If they find the problem I'll be sure to post it. I've already run my gpu benchmark @ max res : 1900x1200 with 8xMSAA and it runs for 5min then ends without any crashing. But when I play games it crashes - weird
So I checked my BIOS and everything else smorlz suggested and still BSOD then I don't know how but I stumbled across something.
My pagefile on my C: Drive was not equal to or bigger than my physical RAM in fact it was tiny. Changed that played Dead Space 3 for good couple hours. Will update one more time later today after testing all my games after work then I guess it'll be safe to say that its solved
firstly I apologize for not updating sooner but I've been trying to get this sorted and managed to do just that with the help from a friend in Johannesburg.
okay so basically and i quote,
"right-click the shortcut to the game you wanna play and make sure to tick "run as administrator" then apply."
"At the top of the properties menu run the "Compatibility Troubleshooter" once done you should test the program with these settings."
"it will launch the game but close it shortly after it runs, do that for all the games you have. if it's a steam go the steam folder where the games are stored and do the above steps for the ("gamename"launcher.exe) and the actual (gamename.exe)."
reboot your pc and that should solve it. been playing my games Far Cry 3, Dead Space 3, Hitman Absolution, Black Ops 2 and few others with no problems at all for the past week and counting..
thank you to everyone who helped me out and gave advice
