I have verified that its the keyboard causing my computer to crash as it doesn't happen with this other one i have plugged in. This seems like a rather weird glitch, and it is quite annoying.. After about 10 to 20 minutes of playing a game whether it be H1Z1 or CSGO, the sound will loop and my computer fans will turn on full blast and the screen will go black, the only way to restart is to hold the power button. My specs are as follows: 

asus z-87k

8gb corsair vengence 

i5 4670k @4.2ghz

GTX 770 ACX SC

Corsair 550vs

Windows 10

  1. Does this also happen when the PC is idle?

For testing purpose: can you disable the overclock and run at stock speed. Does the same happen?

Which USB ports are you using? (Backside or front IO)

Are you using any macro's?

1. it does not happen when idle (playing no games)

2. Yes the same happens.

3. I've tried the keyboard in every port, back and front.

4. No

 

Thank you in advance

I'm thinking this could be related to the PSU as well, but 550w should be more than sufficient for your CPU and GPU to be honest.

If you use a totally different keyboard, this behaviour does not happen?

 

Also: what bios version of your motherboard are you running?

Yeah if i use a totally different keyboard this behavior does not happen.

Bios version/date: American Megatrends Inc. 0801, 02/09/013

SMBIOS version: 2.7 

 

its really quite annoying lol

In the past i've had similar issues with USB devices and complete system freezes.

I had to increase the IOH voltage and a bit of the vtt. However, not sure if that will fix it.

 

I have no overclocking experience with Z87, but this guide might be interesting to check

Especially this part is interesting

 

IOH Vcore: 1.1v 
IOH/ICH Voltage: 1.5v 
ICH Voltage: 1.125v (To help prevent USB related issues at higher bclk) 

 

 

I'm not sure what your M/B will have set as values - what is your value of the IOH/ICH and ICH voltage?

I've tried searching for these values but i cant find to see them anywhere at all, im not even sure they exist on my motherboard, do they have any other names?

Sorry for the later reply.

I've checked the manual

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1150/Z87-K/E8191_Z87-K.pdf

 

it seems this section

2.25.25 PCH VLX Voltage [Auto] (page 2-24)

seems the right part.

What is the current voltage there?

You can try to increase in small steps of 0.005V and see what changes.

 

However, if you are not familiar with voltage adjustments, do not change anything else.
