First, here are my current system specs, so you know what I'm working with:
Figured I'd see if the Community Forum could offer some advice for the problem I've been having with my new AMD PC. I've been experiencing serious stability issues on-and-off pretty much since I first built it in December, and still haven't found a definite solution to the problem. Even after RMA'ing my first 5950X, which brought me some much needed stability for about a month, the issues returned and seem worse than before.
I consistently experience a full system crash (no BSOD, just black screen and restart), often within 15-30 minutes after startup, and sometimes in less than 10 minutes. This seems to be triggered each time by a Kernel-Power critical event (ID 41, task category (63)) followed very closely (i.e., often less than 10 seconds) by a WHEA-Logger error event (ID 18). The WHEA-Logger event is usually a Cache Hierarchy error on (to my knowledge) the weakest core in the CPU, but occasionally I'll see a Bus/Interconnect error on either that same core or core 0.
Here is what I've done so far for troubleshooting:
At this point, I'm really not sure what could be causing the issue. I think I can safely rule out the memory, and I'm not yet convinced it's the CPU. The only things I haven't really tried and am considering are:
I'd appreciate any advice you guys can offer. I'm honestly starting to run out of ideas and hope.
