Yes, it's mostly CPU related. I also have crashes with the Ryzen 7 1700. I am already using the 2nd one swapped from the shop, I'll be RMAing soon.
You can try running Prime95's torture test, pick In-place large FFTs.
I'm currently running the cpu underclocked at 2.5GHz, with C state, SMT, OPCache disabled to get it stable.
That would make sense as its the only component i have yet to rma...its the
crashing universal on all ryzen cpus? Or just the 1700s?
Build the system outside the case on a tables edge covered with newspaper to eliminate case interference with component alignment or any such weirdness. I had a build once that the case had a tiny little burr on a mobo standoff that was causing weirdness like you describe.
I am experience similar issues with my Ryzen 7 1700x build. My system also tends to just "freeze" up or "stall" in addition to the random game exit to desktop issue. Have you been able to figure out what was causing the issue? My components are the following:
Ryzen 7 1700X cpu
MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon mobo
4 sticks of 8gb ddr4 G.Skil Trident Z RGB (32 GB total)
ASUS Dual-GTX 1060-O6G
Corsair Hydro Series H110i Extreme Peformance Liquid CPU Coller
Samsung 960 EVO NvMe SSD 250 GB
Toshiba 1TB 7200 RPM HDD
Corsair 650w PSU
Any ideas would be appreciated.
