Specs:

Ryzen 5 3600x

EVGA XC Ultra Rtx 2070 Super 

Gskill Trident z Neo 3600C16 RAM

Asus Tuf X570 Mobo, Bios version 1405

 

     Pretty simple, when my cpu is boosting with PBO all my games crash. With it turned off and cpu at base 3.8Ghz I have no crashes what so ever. Temps are more than acceptable with PBO enabled and disabled, gpu temps good as well. I've had this problem since I built this pc and turning off PBO is the only solution to fixing game crashes. It's not my memory, and my kit is on the motherboard's QVL. Someone on another forum suggested that I probably got a bad chip, but I don't know, as I said I have no crashes with PBO turned off. Done plenty of windows reinstalls, and I'm on the latest bios version. Games with crashes: Division 2, Destiny 2, Sekiro, and Jedi Fallen Order.  Again, all are fine with it turned off, but I paid for this feature, and I'm sure there is a fix but I'm new to this stuff and can't seem to find other people with this same issue anywhere.
