It seems like your PC is experiencing crashes or hangs when under high game stress. The errors you are receiving are related to UE4, which is the game engine used by many popular games. You have provided detailed information about your system specifications, which includes a powerful graphics card (XFX Merc 310 7900 XTX), a high-end processor (Ryzen 9 7950X), and plenty of RAM (32GB G.Skill Z5 DDR5 6400).

Based on your troubleshooting steps, you have already performed a clean install with cleanup utility and installed drivers only (without Adrenalin), ran 3D Mark with no issues, and ran SFC/Scannow which repaired some corrupted files. Additionally, you installed the latest chipset drivers.

However, there are a few more things you can try:

  1. Check for any BIOS updates for your motherboard and install them if available.
  2. Monitor your system temperatures during gaming to see if there are any overheating issues. You can use software like HWMonitor or MSI Afterburner to monitor temperatures.
  3. Check for any firmware updates for your graphics card and install them if available.
  4. Verify the game files for any games you are experiencing crashes with, as corrupted game files can sometimes cause crashes.

If the issue persists, you may want to consider reaching out to the game developer or the hardware manufacturer for further assistance.
