Do you have a copy of BF4? 

Any chance you can see if your PC is stable for 2 hours of gaming without having a WHEA error and PC Reboot? 
Your PC specs: Ryzen 5 3600 | ASRock x570 Pro4m | Corsair 3200MHz 16GB RGB Kit | XFX RX5700 | W10 20H2 | Latest BIOS for Mobo | Latest AMD Chipset Driver  
are very close to one users PC complaining about that problem in this thread:

I am unable to repeat the problem on Ryzen 2700X and X470 and RX5700XT 
or on 
Ryzen 5 3600 and MSI Tomahawk B450 Motherboard with an RTX2080 (not fitted an RX5700XT to that machine). 

If you do have a copy of BF4 and you could test it that would be great. 

Yes absolutely, it's my favorite game actually. I will test that out this weekend and get back to you. Do I just need to have it running? Like I can enter into the "Test Range" and just sit there haha.


Over the weekend, I played a mix of BF4, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 (Remastered), Cyberpunk 2077 (maxed out), Fortnite, and Dirt Rally 2.0, and GTAV all without issue. Not a single crash, hiccup, or anything. 

Every game is performing well, I get amazing framerate across them all for the hardware I have at least. I have settings virtually maxed out in all games. 


Again, I am on the LATEST everything possible. GPU driver, chipset driver, BIOS for the ASRock Pro4m X570, all games on latest updates (Cyberpunk on 1.05), Windows 20H2.
