Computer will crash/freeze randomly or under load and the CPU error LED will light

Either randomly or when put under load, my brand new Ryzen system will freeze up completely.

Symptoms:

  • No display output
  • PC remains powered
  • Keyboard/mouse will not work
  • CPU error LED on my motherboard will light up

Things I've checked already:

  • PSU - I tried a higher wattage PSU that works just fine in a more power hungry system, same problem.
  • Thermals - The computer isn't overheating or anything. Temperatures are reasonably low at the times of incident.
  • Drivers - Already tried DDU-ing and reinstalling drivers for all components.

Relevant specifications:
CPU - Ryzen 5 1600XGPU - R9 390X

Motherboard - MSI B350M Mortar Arctic

PSU - Rosewill Photon 650W 80+ Gold

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Could be a faulty CPU. Does it happen if you run something like Memtest86 at boot time?

Any chance to know

which driver version your using, OS or OS's installed, or if any over clocking settings are set? Including the newer Memory Try IT configs or something that is now said to be avoided unless running Win8, the MSI Faster Boot, which is entirely to fast and totally misses the entire hardware sometimes the actual UEFI Firmware, but it will find your info, type setting ?

Your LED is blinking because something is most likely wrong with the board. I haven't run into anyone having problems with a 1600x and is very stable, but on the setup and drivers I know that are good.
