Well, my combo is an FX - 8320e with RX 580 which causes bottleneck. No BSOD in 3,5 years.
I'm planning getting an Ryzen 5950x and keeping my RX 580 until gpu prices get back to normal and a friend of mine told that I will get BSOD.

My question is: Does the '' size '' of the bottleneck cause BSOD? The RX 580 - Ryzen 5950x combo causes a bigger bottle neck. That's why I'm asking.

The cpu and gpu will not cause BSOD together by themselves. What would cause a BSOD is switching from the 8320e to the 5950x without reinstalling windows. Swapping out CPU, Motherboard, and ram with that big of a generation gap without a fresh install will give you a 99% chance of a BSOD.


With that said these are the following release dates
5950x Nov 5, 2020
Rx 580 April 18, 2017
Fx 8320e Sep 2, 2014


My old system ran
i7 950 Jun 3, 2009
Gtx 780 ti Feb 19, 2013
GPU is currently in a Ryzen 3600x July 7, 2019
That computer has gone from a CPU bottleneck to a GPU bottleneck, its no longer my primary gaming computer but it does game every now and then.

A BSOD is triggered when there's an unrecoverable error in the system. A bottleneck by definition should not cause an unrecoverable error, because it just means the hardware being bottlenecked shouldn't be doing anything, as it can't really do anything. If the specific piece of hardware idling causes an unrecoverable error, that's a problem with the hardware.

Yeah, the windows will be reinstalled either way, so I guess I won't have any problem. Thanks!
