New AMD system keeps BSOD'ing. Please help me troubleshoot
Hi guys, I would be very thankful for input on how to troubleshoot my build. Any ideas and feedback is very appreciated. I have tried alot of things to get this rig stable in windows 10, without luck. This is the third fresh Windows install, and just dont wanna play ball. I have double checked that all cables are well connected. Double checked that all components are seated correctly in the motherboard. Things I havent tried ; Testing if its stable running Linux. Resetting CMOS. Updating to newest BIOS (bios was updated to newest in June 2019).
Stress tests run
OCCT CPU test - pass
Memtest 12 hours - pass
Unigine Heaven + Valley - pass
Realbench 2.43 Multiple runs - pass
Crystal disk mark and Crucial's own disk utility report zero problems with the ssd. - pass.
Windows BSOD : NON PAGED AREA, KERNEL POWER, many more and many different bsod messages. No real pattern.
PC can get stuck in loops, where one BSOD will trigger multiple new ones. Until Windows boots in start up repair. Windows will eventually boot and then on boot tell that its rolled back some updates.
Windows will sometimes on boot report that AMD whatman crashed.
The PC has some lucky streaks, if not rebooted; I've had windows running for a few days at best without powering down. Somehow, I feel our problems are boot related. And driver related.
It is more likely to crash while casually browsing the web or handling files, than under load (gaming).
Bios settings applied
Tried upping SOC voltage to 1.05 - no luck.
Tried setting Manual Override (constant) voltage 1.375v - no luck.
Tried running adaptive voltage with an offset (Maxing out around 1.375v). - no luck.
GPU running stock.
CPU boosting to around 3900 without touching mutipliers or anything regarding the clock.
Bios : 7A40vA6
OS : Windows 10 pro 64 bit.
Various games; Prey, Sekiro, doom 2016, DIshonored 2, Overwatch, Starcraft 2 can be stable for hours without crashing. Usually the PC appears the most stable under gaming sessions.
Max temperatures observed under load
CPU : 71c.
GPU : 68c.
In sequence, with reboots between each install. All drivers listed on MSI's website for the board.
AMD chipset drivers. - clean install.
AMD GPU driver. - tried both DDU and clean install.
