Hi! Fighting exactly the same Problem for 4-6 Week.
RMA the CPU may not help. I'm on a ASUS B550-f, 3700X, and 32GB RAM.
I switched every Part of the PC by a brand new!!! -> New Board, new CPU and even new RAM (first i get G.skill Ram, now i own Corsair Vengeance PRO. Wasting much Money and Time with this Sh**.
PC is and was 100% Prime Stable for 24h in a row.
PC runs for 5 Days for Gaming etc withour any Problem, then freezed again in Night without doing any Task.
Today im triying deactivate the DOCP Profile and use manual timings. For this i used the App DRAM Calculator to get recommened Voltages for SOC and DRAM. In my Case its 1,025 for SOC an 1,35 for DRAM.
additinally i switched the IDLE state in Bios from low idle to typical idle. Your bios surely have this setting to.
Now i‘ll give it a try.
Please let me now if you find a soultion, i will do so too.
Changes in the operating system and nVidia display drivers forced the processor to overvoltage for me with the BIOS even though I was using Intel.
Right now I have to use my system with overvoltage like you. The only difference is I am using the 452.06 driver. New drivers are a problem for me. The system is stuttering with the new display drivers on the desktop and I have to delete it.
I've seen a 3700x user fix this problem by slowing down the processor a bit.
Go to the BIOS and return to factory settings and then reboot. And then go back to BIOS again and manually set CPU Core Ratio value to 35.
This way maybe solves your problem...
How on earth is 'slowing down a processor' from stock speeds at all an acceptable resolution?
The resolution ended up being a faulty CPU. I purchased a 5600X, put it in, absolutely 0 issues what so ever at stock speeds. RMA'ed the 3700X.
I was having a similar issue with freezing at idle. No BSODs since I am running Linux, but I was seeing the following errors:
[ 333.351075] mce: [Hardware Error]: Machine check events logged
[ 333.351077] [Hardware Error]: Corrected error, no action required.

With A-XMP enabled, the system set the RAM speed to 3600. After I manually set the memory speed to 3200, I am no longer seeing issues. I tested the RAM and got no errors but maybe 3600 is pushing things even though the RAM is rated for that speed.

I have the same issue, not getting BSODs though, everything freezes up except the mouse. My system works fine under load but freezes while browsing, waking the monitors from sleep, or just sitting idle. I have yet to narrow down the issue beyond CPU, MOBO, RAM, and PSU being the cause. Probably going to start RMAing components and hope for the best.
Several solutions I have found:
* Setting Optimized Defaults in BIOS everything to Auto
* Disabling Core Performance Boost
* Setting RAM speed to 2133MHz with auto timings or 3200MHz with high timings CL22
* Setting CPU voltage manually, 1.25v.
Here are some theories I have:
* Ryzen CPUs seem to be VERY sensitive to voltage, perhaps too high a voltage damaged the cpu?
* Bad stick of RAM? I tested with a pair of GSkill 3200MHz sticks from a friends PC and experienced no issues.
* Faulty CPU or mobo.
* RAM is not on the mobos QVL.
ROG Strix X570-I Gaming BIOS ver 3001
Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x16GB 3200MHz (16 18 18 36 54)
Funny thing is I can OC my system to this with NO issues!
CPU 4400MHz @1.25v, FCLK 1800MHz, RAM 3600MHz @1.36v with 16 18 18 36 54 timings.
Which leads me to believe it may not be faulty hardware. Setting a manual overclock yields better performance anyway so I might just live with it or RMA the CPU.
If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear it.
@sarge198 Sarge - I had the same experience when I was running a 3700x. With freezes where you could still move the mouse. In my case, my ram wasn't the best quality and couldn't run DOCP (Vengence LPX 3200C16 8.31 Nanya Dies) at stock voltages. I manually changed ram voltage to 1.4v and the problems went away (something like 1.37v-1.38v probably would have worked as well, but since 1.4v worked I didn't bother adjusting). Was freeze-free for 6-7 weeks, until I upgraded toa 5900x - which came with it's own slew of problems.
@ae1I already tried manually setting RAM voltage and unfortunately it did not make any difference. I was able to determine that my RAM uses Samsung B-Die which is ideal for Ryzen CPUs. So I don't think it's a RAM issue for me. Its looking more and more like a bad CPU. What issues did you experience with the 5900x? I was thinking of getting a 5600x if they ever become available.
I was finally able to solve this problem by disabling 'Global C-State Control' in the BIOS. I haven't had a single crash or freeze since.
