    Over the past couple of weeks i have been getting a BSOD while playing most games, i am going to assume it's a Cooling System/Thermal Paste Problem it's now coming up to two years old and it is a bit of a nuisance.

    This is the system i currently have:

    i7 6700k CPU
    Nvidia Ge force GTX 1060 Sky lake 6gb
    16 GB Hyper X fury DDR4 RAM
    Asus H110 m-a Motherboard
    corsair 750w PSU
    Corsair Case

    I have diagnosed in order - That it is not the PSU because everything comes on fine and 750w is more then enough to power all components.
    Graphics Card works fine and i can go to ultra settings.
    Done a Memory Test and memory passed 3 times with 0 errors.

    I don't think the motherboard i have is great for high custom games but it's not given me any problems before, maybe i could get a better one but i don't want to waste money unless i really have to.
    Case could be a little bigger because it is pretty cramped but again it's not a major issue.
    Only thing that would make any sense to me is the CPU Cooler and/or Thermal Paste has Deteriorated and when it gets too hot then it crashes and gives me a blue screen.

    What Thermal Paste and Cooler Would anybody suggest.

    Right Now i have this bundle and is about 18 months since i first used it https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01ALW5GVE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1.
    Here is the case if that also helps :)

    Thank you Lunar i had a look at the CoreTemp and each core went to at least the following numbers

    Core 0: 36c - 43c Maximum is 44c
    Core 1: 36c - 44c Maximum is 47c
    core 2: 35c - 44c Maxium is 43c
    core 3: 33c - 40c Maximum 43.

    The minimum for each component at the very least is 33 so this tells me each core is over the minimum and under the maximum but i think it looks like it is a CPU cooling issue and maybe the Thermal Paste has pretty much Died up.

    Without proof of the temps being over the limit, you are chasing ghosts by insisting that that cooling is your problem.

    It turned out the problem was simply a Windows 10 OS issue - DPC Watchdog Violation i reinstalled everything and will get a few pieces of hardware like more fans and a fan splitter to make sure my system is in a better condition. Hopefully with windows fully reinstalled from scratch the issue is resolved. but fingers crossed lol.
