I'm going to try and explain my situation as clearly as possible.

So I built my computer a couple of years ago and from the moment it was built I've had trouble with Bluescreens. It usually happens on startup or just after. The stopcodes are different most of the time, but "memory_management" is the most common one. What is really weird is that when I start up my pc, immediately choose for the "restart" button, it boots normally. The Bluescreens also don't happen more than twice per startup. So basically I have to start up my computer twice for it to act normally.

I've tried to validate my files a couple of times now because it is starting to get really annoying but I've not been succesfull in finding any corrupted files. It is also very annoying that no dump files get created due to errors occuring during the making of one.

A couple of days ago I upgraded my computer to Windows 11 and fully formatted my drives in the hope that the Bluescreens would dissapear but it did not help.

I have no idea what is causing the problem so I would like some help on this. :)
(I personally think it is a hardware problem since it hasn't dissapeared when I upgraded to Windows 11, but I'm just guessing...)

P.S.
I'm sorry if it isn't written completely right, English isn't my first language :)

Are you utilizing "XMP" on the RAM?

What BIOS revision are you on?

I know one of the selling point features of the Max series boards was being 3xxx ready (for real) out of the box, and that is considered a good quality mobo. In a case like this it could be related to the RAM and it could be related to the CPU, as the memory controller resides there.

So I've looked in my BIOS and found that the setting "A-XMP" was on. Also I'm running BIOS version: E7C02AMS.350.
(I did not change anything I just looked)

Just so I understand it completely
I turn off "A-XMP" and set the RAM speed to 3200Mhz?

(Thanks btw for reacting so fast!!! :) )
