    Unknown reason for system crashing

    Hmm okay, I have the option to return the CPU if you think that might help? They RAM sticks are the same brand and model, here's a link. I have two sets which in total makes 4x8GB. I've tried both sets separately and together in the correct DIMM slots as specified in the manual. The ZenTimings...

    Unknown reason for system crashing

    Hello again @Zach. Frustratingly the issue still persists. I successfully updated the BIOS and I have tried disabling and enabling XMP Profile 1. I imagine this leaves us with steps 5 and 6 in your previous post? At this point is this likely to be an issue with my CPU if anything as I have tried...

    Unknown reason for system crashing

    Thanks @Zach for your help. I've now flashed BIOS version F10 and it hasn't crashed when I put my computer to sleep and woke it back up again. Hopefully the issue has been resolved now but I will find out over the next couple days. Helpful to know about the sleep/hibernation modes.

    Unknown reason for system crashing

    Thanks Zach! I'm not currently at home and won't be now until the day after tomorrow but I will go through some of those steps to see if anything changes. I've never updated the bios of a motherboard before, is it difficult or risky at all? Also I don't fully understand step 4 and 5 so I may...

    Unknown reason for system crashing

    Since upgrading the CPU, motherboard and RAM in my desktop PC I have been experiencing multiple system crashes, as though there has been a complete power cut. I originally posted on the LinusTechTips forum for some help and someone suggested running HWiNFO on my desktop to see if there is any...
