I have a problem with my Intel I7-6700k when i'm playing or in idle sometimes it freezes and only shutdown the PC its the only way to fix the problem.
I Installed the latest Motherboard Bios and I have win 10 updated, this issue is very annoyng I run the Intel Processor diagnostic tool and some benchmark for the GPU and memtest86 and my system is able pass whitout problems all the tests. I want to know if there any fix for this because I loss a lot of Works when my Pc freezes, it freeze whiout BSOD or error log on the log of windows, the platform also is not overcloked at all. All the components are running at the stock clock and stuff.
the details of my sistem are:
Win10 pro 64 bit.
RAM: x2 G skill Ripjaws V 3000 mhz cl 15-16-16-35
MOBO: MSI SLI Plus Z170a
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080.
PSU: Corsair RM1000X
2 ssd and 1 hdd.
Hope have an answer soon.

Hello Amy, Thanks for the response.
I have seen this set of symptoms before - unfortunately many times (though usually with Intel board and NUC products). The # 1 cause for Watchdog Timeouts, responsible for at least 95% of all occurrences, is memory bus lockup. I suggest that you disable your XMP profile and run your memory at default (2133MHz) settings for a week or two. If the occurrences disappear, you will know that this was the cause and you can either replace your memory or leave it running at the lower settings.
The maximum speed that you can reliably run your memory at is dependent upon the amount of noise present. Noise comes from all sources - the processor (memory controllers), the DIMMs and the memory bus itself (which can pick up noise from other components nearby). The memory bus provides filters (bus terminators, etc.) to remove noise, but this is not always effective (and boards with poor or limited implementations abound in the marketplace) and, if the combined noise levels reaches certain thresholds, the memory controllers will begin to misinterpret noise as data and noise as data, garbling the values being transferred. Error correction algorithms attempt to handle this but, if the algorithms are overcome (i.e. multi-bit errors), a bus lockup can and will occur. Your only recovery then is a system reset caused by the Watchdog Timer.
Hope this helps,
