Hey all, my computer is crashing using stock settings and I'm hoping someone can help me troubleshoot what's going on with my build. I was using a 1700 in this build previously and don't recall coming across any issues.
CPU: R7 2700X
Mobo: X370 Crosshair 6 Hero
Memory: Corsair 2x8GB 3200Mhz CL16
PSU: EVGA G2 750W PSU
GPU: 1080 Ti
What prompted me to start troubleshooting the memory is when I tried running it at it's XMP profile (3200Mhz) and it started rebooting & crashing. I played around with the timings for a few days. Nothing worked, so I kept reducing the memory clock until I went back down to stock, using memtest86 to check errors.
Decided to clear the CMOS and run memtest86 using stock settings.
- Seeing 0-50 errors on each pass (error logs attached).
- All errors are on one CPU thread (10)
- Tried each stick in each DIMM slot, no errors encountered at all (no errors in single channel)
- Changed BIOS from 7704 to 6401, no change.
I don't have spare parts that I can use to determine exactly which part is causing the errors, though I suspect it is the CPU as I don't recall noticing any issues when an R7 1700 was in the same build and all memtest86 errors are shown on only one thread.
Is there anything else I could try? And if not, should I RMA the CPU or memory first?
Aim is for least down time as possible.
Thanks in advance
