Hmm whats the cpu and gpu temps while playing games?
Crashed while installing games on Steam, so probably not an issue.

Got run memtest?
Not yet, maybe later. Memtest86 on USB is it? I tried the Memtest64 and PC also froze.

Just changed RAM to single stick 8GB from Corsair, and PC crashed again. System service exception, and now BIOS won't detect either SSD.

AsRock motherboard strikes again.

My SSDs are both m.2s and attached to the mobo. No sata cables involved.

Before you return the motherboard for testing/RMA, try rolling back your BIOS to an older version, and then reflash it back to the new version. The crashes could be due to corrupted BIOS. This happened to me when I flashed my Asrock X470 board to the latest P3.90, which I subsequently downgraded to P3.60, which corrupted the BIOS. Strangely when running stress test, it works perfectly fine and stable. But when gaming, it keeps crashing out or BSOD. So I bit the bullet and flashed it back to P3.90 after trying to do a clean install of Nvidia driver that did not help. After flashing the BIOS back to P3.90, it seems stable for now.

This is a good thing to test and I would go the extra mile and if you have a spare partition or hard disk re-install windows and try the game/app that you experience the most crashes with.

It’s easy to just point this is wrong or that but ultimately there needs to be a fair bit of troubleshooting done to get to the bottom of the issue. IF you listen to some it could be RAM,.. go RMA that then it still happens,.. next RMA motherboard,... maybe then its fixed? WOW the legwork involved in that is no joke!

I don't really think it's a Windows issue TBH. I downclocked my RAM down to 2666MHz and went back to an earlier BIOS, 3.20 for my B450 Steel Legend. Everything seems to be stable so far. The newer BIOS does seem to be a bit more unstable for my RAM.

It could be either the motherboard or the RAM, and maybe both. Makes troubleshooting nearly impossible in this case. Not being able to run at XMP means something is not right.

I feel it’s worth a short to reflash the BIOS. The BSOD may be due to a corrupted BIOS. And honestly, besides the difference in error you are getting, they symptoms looks quite similar to what I experienced.

Flashed the 3.20 BIOS again and enabled XMP. Seems stable for the time being, will monitor further. Thanks.

Quick update, the PC started crashing again.

I backed up my files and reinstalled Windows, but any time I transfer large amounts of data, the PC will BSOD with WHEA uncorrectable error. I cannot find any dump files inside the system, changed all the settings but the BSOD will restart at 0%.

I don't think it's a RAM issue, as stated earlier using 1 stick of RAM from another PC still caused crashes. Also don't think it's an SSD problem since transferring files or installing the Steam library to either will crash. Probability of both SSDs dying quite low right...

Probably gonna RMA the motherboard soon, if it doesn't work then RMA CPU. Followed by RAM then SSD.
