Ryzen 5900x on MSI MPG B550 Gaming Carbon Wifi - Crashing, WHEA error with id 18


I have the common crash I guess...

the behavior is very strange however. I have no problem in many games, such as Call of Duty and Borderlands, but as soon as I play World of Warcraft for some hours, it will crash. The screen will suddenly stop, the screen gets black with some colors and then it reboots.

I have tried several different Bios versions and am currently on Agesa 1.0.8

All available Bios versions from MSI crash for me, the beta version is the worst of all.

I have tried operating the system with XMP and without XMP. I tried increasing the memory DRAM by 0.05V as was stated as a potential fix in this forum, but it still crashes.

The rest of my specs are:

Zotac RTX 3070 TwinEdge

Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200mhz dual kit

Corsair 650w PSU


Here are my dmp files:

Strangely it stopped generating dmp files since the last crash.
I am at the end of my knowledge and start to really regret that I bought this CPU...
All of the components, except for the CPU and the MB ran in my previous setup.
I am very thankful for anybody that can provide a potential fix ...
