Ryzen 5 3600 Random BSODs

Greetings, after about a week after installing my new CPU, Ryzen 5 3600, I started having problems with random BSODs. I have already gotten 5 of them, and I couldn't find the reason for them occuring. The error codes are different each time, except today, when I got the same error I got 2 days ago. I had to update my BIOS before the CPU upgrade, but I think that BIOS is not the issue. 

Memory Minidumps:


Full system config:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with cooler from the box

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GT OC, 4GB GDDR5

Motherboard: MSI B450 A-PRO

RAM: G Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2x8 GB) 2666 MHz C15 (XMP Profile)

PSU: Thermaltake Smart SE - 530W

Peripherals: Keyboard, Mouse (+ Connect IT NEO+ software), Defender Cobra M5 Joystick


What I tried doing:

Reinstalling/Uninstalling recently installed programs and drivers,

Updating my drivers, 

Running OCCT Tests (OCCT test with auto parameters, Memory test with the memory setting on max), no errors

Running built-in Windows memory diagnostics, no errors

Running DXDIAG, no errors

Switching to different power plans (High performance, Balanced)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.


EDIT: I forgot to say, that my Windows 10 installation is set on the Legacy version of BIOS, not UEFI, no idea if this has any effect to the situation I'm having or not.

If the crashes are WHEA errors in windows errorlog and happen at idle or near-idle, try to get a beta BIOS with AGESA

I did not find any WHEA errors in the error log.
