PC crashes after login to Steam (Windows 10)


I've recently built a new PC and everything seems to be working fine and well. I don't really overclock my pc and don't really plan to. But I do use Steam from time to time to play my games. Unfortunately, everytime I lauch steam and click log in, my whole system crashes and my motherboard q code shows me the error 8. All other programs seems to be working fine.

I've tried to install and uninstall steam but the crash is still there. I'm running on the lastest drivers of my videocard and all.

Below is my build:

Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VI Hero (Bios: 1403)

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X

GPU: ZOTAC GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme

RAM: GSkill Trident Z RGB 32gb 4x8gb 3200 CL16 (F4-3200C16D-16GTZR)

CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 AM4 Bracket

SSD: Samsung Evo 850 1TB

PSU: Seasonic PRIME 850 W Platinum

Thank you very much!
