I recently build a new system:
CPU: Ryzen 5900X (Stock)
Cooler: NZXT X63
Ram: GSkill Tidentz NEO 3600MHZ
SSD: Samsung 1 TB EVO PLUS
GPU: RTX 3090 FE (Installed in PCIE first slot with Gen 4)
Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VIII Hero X570 (Bios: 3003,
I have tried will all the new BIOS and this one is the most stable till now)
PSU: Corsair RM1000X
Case: NZXT H710
Now, I am facing random restarts when I am using the RAM's DOCP profile. Is my RAM defective?
Most of the shutdowns happen when 3dmark is done running the stress test and tries to validate the results or I am uninstalling something.
The error is:
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
I am not overclocking or anything, just using the default DOCP profile. I have tried all the BIOS versions from 2311 onwards, but all of them have me crashing in DOCP. Can anyone please help here?
Read those threads first.
I have to log off now.
One finding.... it's always crashing as soon as I am done playing Cyberpunk 2077 and the steam client is closing the game (I think also uploading the save backups).
This is the very common WHEA reboot issue. Symptoms are WHEA errors in Windows event logger, and reboots with a black screen (no bluescreen) at idle or near-idle. Try a beta BIOS with AGESA 126.96.36.199, there are some indications this helps. I'm up to 2 days stable now with it.
