    Reinstall didn't work.

    I've figured out a way to be able to bring task manager to the front of the screen so that when it does crash I can terminate the app, but other than that all it seems I can do is stop playing SC2!

    Since reinstall didn't work, can you try running like Furmark, or Heaven benchmark to see if you can replicate the symptom?

    I ran Heaven benchmark and it didn't crash, but I didn't leave it over 20 minutes. Maybe I'll give that a go.

    Let the gpu cooldown to less than 35 degrees using coolerboost. Then run Heaven on basic settings.

    Hi Guys, is there a VBIOS for the MSI GT62VR with GTX1070 newer than 8D in the works? Any insider news from MSI?

    May I ask why you needed one?
    There are only two Gsync Vbioses that I know of.
    3A (for GT73VR 7RE; not sure if 6RE uses this or not)
    8D (for GT72VR dominator pro).

    Considering that the 8A Vbios works on BOTH SYSTEMS, you can try this one.
    But there is no difference between them. Probably only product ID.

    Hi Gents,
    Complete newbie here. I purchased an MSI GT73VR. I have searched around and heard about the GPU problems, as my model is 2016 I suspect that I have one of the faulty GPUS. I have had some issues whilst gaming, I've played some games fine however I have had crashes whilst playing some. Recently I have been playing the Witcher The Enhanced Edition and I keep crashing. I have tried to underclock the GPU but it still crashes. I am attaching some caps of the log files:

    Also, The logs after I tried underclocking:

    I havent tried flashing the VBIOS yet. I would like to confirm its the same issue affecting the other cards before I try.

    Looks like it.

    Easy way to induce the crash: put max fans on, let gpu get as cool as possible, open and run Heaven benchmark on basic preset.

    How to check if your issue is card voltage: open MSI Afterburner, open the voltage /frequency curve editor, click any point below 1.013V, hit ctrl+L to lock clocks and voltage to that (note your GPU will be a bit warmer since it'll now be idling at a higher speed), then try to induce the crash as above
