Recently, my new Ryzen computer has been giving me issues! For one, despite the memory being clocked at 2997 since I built it, it will no longer post at any OC settings. Second, when it does post, I have random crashes and errors! I ran memtest86 on my PC and failed, hard. I tested each individual stick, in each individual DIMM, and all passed the test with 8 or 9 passes - no errors.
I thought it was maybe a heatwave causing my PC to overheat, so I added both sticks in and immediately ran into issues! My PC crashed when opening Overwatch, causing all the data to become corrupted (having to uninstall, and reinstall) and I have no idea where to go. I think it might be the motherboard, but some have told me that intermitted issues like this could be the CPU. Is there a way for me to test? I'd hate to RMA my CPU without knowing and wasting the time.
From what I have been told, there is no way to really know other than replace the units but I am not made of money and I feel like my PC is too new to have to replace the CPU and the motherboard. If someone can give me some guidance, I'd greatly appreciate it.
