    Hi all,

    I built this PC about 8 months ago and have not had many problems with it until the last month or so. I am getting BSoD when playing Counter-Strike:GO, Darksiders 2, and also once while playing League of Legends. I initially thought this was an problem with my RAM, so this morning before work I started Memtest86+. Memtest ran for 9hours and 8 complete passes while I was at work. I returned home to find that Memtest had produced no errors. Now I am turning to this forum for help.

    My PC specs are as follows:
    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 - BIOS 1.2 (There is a new version available)
    Intel Core i5 2500 (Not the K model)
    G Skill DDR3 PC3-12800 (Rated for 9 timing but I set in the BIOS to 8 which produced no errors in Memtest)
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 (Newest drivers)
    Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA III 7200RPM

    I also attached a zip file containing the information from SF Diagnostics, Screencaps of all tabs in CPUZ, and the HTML output from RAMMon. As I said, the blue screens only occur when the PC is in heavy use (gaming) and not when doing everyday activities. If anymore information is request or more diagnostics need to be run, I am willing to do whatever is needed. Thank you all in advance.

    CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION (109)
    This bugcheck is generated when the kernel detects that critical kernel code or
    data have been corrupted. There are generally three causes for a corruption:
    1) A driver has inadvertently or deliberately modified critical kernel code
     or data. See [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/driver/kernel/64bitPatching.mspx"]Patching Policy for x64-Based Systems[/URL]
    2) A developer attempted to set a normal kernel breakpoint using a kernel
     debugger that was not attached when the system was booted. Normal breakpoints,
     "bp", can only be set if the debugger is attached at boot time. Hardware
     breakpoints, "ba", can be set at any time.
    3) A hardware corruption occurred, e.g. failing RAM holding kernel code or data.

    Hi,

    I would apply those bios updates asap as it looks like that could be the cause of your issue. Also a few drivers could do with updating like sound, network and the intel management engine driver (you can find an updated version on the motherboard website).
