    2700X and Aorus Gaming 7, PC crashes under load




      I have recently purchased the motherboard, RAM and CPU and I have a problem with the PC shutting down while gaming, streaming in OBS or both. The system is only stable if everything is on stock settings and if I enable XMP profile the PC randomly crashes during gaming and/or streaming. When the PC shuts off the LEDs on the motherboard continue glowing and I have to turn off and on the PSU to be able to turn it back on, otherwise the power button on the case and I/O panel don't do anything. I'm wondering if this is a problem with the CPU or the motherboard?


      Solutions I've tried:

      - remounting CPU cooler

      - trying with different RAM: G.SKILL F4-3600C16D-16GTZR - unstable at any ram speed except 2133MHz, G.SKILL F4-3000C15D-16GVGB also unstable at any speed except 2133MHz.

      - different GPU

      - different PSU, Seasonic SS-520GB

      - unplugged every HDD except Samsung 850 EVO with Windows 10 64bit

      - installed original Windows 10 64bit on Kingston SSD

      - tried flashing all available BIOSes

      - tried SOC up to 1.25v and DRAM voltage up to 1.5v


      Temps while under load:

      GPU: about 85c

      CPU: about 65c


      PC specs:

      CPU: Ryzen 2700X

      MBO: Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 WIFI

      RAM: G.SKILL F4-3400C16D-16GSXW

      PSU: Seasonic Focus Plus 650 Platinum
