Ryzen 5 5600x crashing

Hello! So recently, I received a Ryzen 5 5600x as a graduation gift, and found out that I would need to get either a B550 or X570 motherboard to use it, so I bought the B550 (as stated) and am having an issue or two. Every once in a while, I'll be playing a game, and out of no where it will just restart. For example, I can play a game called Rust, and it will run perfectly fine for a little while, but then out of nowhere it will just restart completely. The worst case I've had with it restarting is when I would attempt to start a game called Jump Force. Usually it will just instantly restart the moment it tries to run the game, but the furthest I've gotten without it restarting is the Title Screen

I checked the Computer Management app on my computer, and its giving me this error message

A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Bus/Interconnect Error
Processor APIC ID: 8

I'm sure this has been asked about before since it seems to be an issue with the 5000 series of CPU's, and so I just wanted to know what I should do to make the PC or CPU stable so I can play my games.

I'm not entirely sure if its needed, but here are my PC specs:

CPU: Ryzen 5 5600x
GPU: Radeon RX 570, soon to be a Radeon RX 5500XT
Motherboard: ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4
RAM: Gskill Trident Z RGB 16gb (8x2)
PSU: EVGA 500 watt non modular powersupply
