Apologies if this is a beginner question.
I've just 'successfully' built a gaming PC myself, and everything works perfectly, apart from one thing. I keep getting this error when trying to sync my bitcoin wallet.
I've tried everything under the sun to get this working, different versions of the wallet, clean installs, but no, without fail, the database keeps getting corrupted. I saw on a forum that bad math from an overheated or overclocked processor can be a cause this error.
Is this true? Each of my cores are averaging 40 degrees Celsius, which I know is fine. I haven't even attempted overclocking.
Could the error be caused by bad hardware? Somewhat easier to understand is the fact that the error could be caused by bad sectors on my SSD. Or bad RAM addresses. How can I find out if hardware is faulty? Are there clues that I can do right now, or should I find a program to stress test?
