Hello everyone,


For several weeks my pc has been crashing, but when it crashes all I can do nothing more than pressing the restart button on my tower.

My config:

Ryzen 7 2700x

Asus tuf b450-plus gaming

16gb of ram (2x8) 3200MHz

RTX 2060 oc 6gb

Aerocool KCAS 650G 80 plus gold


My config is brand new 1 or 2 months. And since I had 3200MHz ram bars, I activated the D.O.C.P in the bios to run my ram at 3200 MHz instead of 2400 MHz. What I didn't know was that my processor supports max up to 2933MHz. My pc then started to crash several times a day and when I restart it, in the event viewer there is a critical kernel power 41 error. I then deactivated the DOCP and reset the bios, then it has less plant once or twice a day or even once a week. I also reinstalled windows and do ram tests with memtest86 and prime95 for the procs but nothing to find 0 errors.

Was it my processor that took a hit or the motherboard or some other component?



Thanks in advance for your answers
