2700x CPU

Asus Vega 64 GPU (18.11.1)

Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard

Windows 10 1803

 

Always crashes while playing the lastest Call of Duty title (Black Ops 4) and Wolfenstein 2.  Games do not crash while using the internal motherboard audio for headphones, however. 

 

When the computer does crash, it is accompanied by this awful electronic buzzing noise.  There's no crash codes or blue screens given either, just a hard lock up with a black screen.
