I am running a Windows 10 Home PC (64bit) and it was running great up until the last few weeks. Hardware make up is i7-7700 16gb ram and a MSI GTX1080 all on an MSI Z270 PC Mate mobo. It is liquid cooled and my boot drive (c:) is an SSD.
While playing demanding games such as Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, Rust and Far Cry5, I have experienced a couple issues. First being that for no reason given, the games will suddenly crash to desktop. It doesnt happen right away but usually after 30+ minutes of playing. The other issue I experience is after a while of play my framerate (FPS) will suddenly drop from it's typical 100-150 FPS range to 40's and even 30's. If I restart the game, this goes away usually.
My PC is an iBuyPowerPC that I got in August of 2017.
When these issues began I originally thought it was perhaps teh streaming software I was using - Xsplit.. I then switched from that to Streamlabs OBS but the issue continued. Someone mentioned using the normal OBS software so I did that and the issues still persisted.
I then ran memtest. I just ran the basic test and it passed.
I checked my cpu and gpu temps and they seemed within a good range according to MSI and Intel. the highest i saw my CPU was about 83C and my GPU highest was around 72C. This is of course while playing.
So I figured maybe software related.
2 days ago I wiped my C drive clean, formatted it and reinstalled Windows 10 Home. I then installed my drivers, adobe CC, Office and my games. The issue came back. So I formatted again and this time I only installed my video drive, my mouse drive, my cam, OBS and playerunknow's battlegrounds. The issue came back. This morning I just crashed to a blue screen.
I am at a loss of what to do.
How can i check for thermal throttling?
is there any software I can run to really stress my system and log all temps? Would doing this help me find teh cause?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
