Someone send helppppp. Pulling my hair out over this...
I keep getting hard crashes while playing Destiny 2 (extremely randomly, I went like 2 days without an crash and today it's happened about 3 times.) I've tried multiple stress tests and can not seem to replicate the hard crash.... I was only able to replicate the crash one time, and that was with Cinebench R20. I've run AIDA64, Furmark, etc, etc. I just don't understand what is going on.. It always crashes when i'm AFK so I don't know if it freezes first then crashes, but I have caught it frozen one time and had to hard reset it. Temps are definitely not a concern, they stay around 70C. Aside from XMP enabled, everything else is stock I believe (radeon software is set to automatic/default, not sure if that actually overclocks the GPU or not.)
This is the error I get in Event Viewer after the crash (although the APIC ID # changes.) -
A fatal hardware error has occurred.
Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor APIC ID: 14
I've yet to have it happen in other games, but I play Destiny 2 the most. I've sort of convinced myself it may be my memory kit (with the help of some redditors) when it's running at XMP, but honestly since I can't replicate the crash, I can't be certain. It did run for a few hours with XMP off w/o crashing, but again, it happens randomly so this may have just been a fluke. My memory kit is BL2K16G36C16U4BL which isn't on the QVL list (not many sticks on the QVL list tbh... kind of frustrating.) Came across a reddit thread and there are a few other people recently that have had this same issue (not destiny 2, but in general.) This leads me to believe it's not strictly related to Destiny 2. I have a replacement CPU coming Wed, and I'm thinking about ordering some memory (G Skill Trident Z Neo 32gb 2x16 3600 CL16) tonight so it will arrive at the same time and I can test both. If anyone is running that kit successfully, please let me know as it isn't on the QVL either!
I'd really appreciate some more input on this issue as I just built this PC from brand new parts about a week ago and it's extremely frustrating. Wouldn't be so bad if I could actually replicate the error and pinpoint the cause, but it's not always that easy is it...
Let me know if you need any more info, hwinfo logs, etc.
