Hey guys i have a new system :
Ryzen 5 3600
Asrock b450M steel legend
16gb adata d30 3000mhz
650W gold rated psu
500gb pcie ssd
and a GTX 1050ti which draws power from the motherboard.
I am getting whea uncorrectable error whenever i overclock my cpu and ram.
I know the error is due to overclocking but i want to overclock my system, so is there any way i can bypass that error and is this happening becasue of my graphics card as it draws power from my motherboard.
Thanking you in advance for your help.

Depends on what WHEA error you are getting. The dump file would be useful here to check the parameters:

But there is no simple "bypass" as the WHEA is simply a hardware error, that your hardware is behaving in a way that it shouldn't So it could be that your components are not good overclockers. Also depends on how you are overclocking them. and also on your PSU make and model.

is this happening becasue of my graphics card as it draws power from my motherboard.
See above about the dump file.

If you are getting that error you are probably putting in wrong settings in the overclock changes or trying too much of an overclock. Keep trying to to this with crashes can lead to hardware failure. Since you think this may be coming from the fact you have a video card, you would not have much experience with overclocking. Read a bit on how to overclock on your motherboard, start with a little at a time and see how things go.

If you have all the power connected to the motherboard properly and you have a good power supply the video card would not affect anything.

Or just run the system at stock speeds. A working system is always better than a broken one with a faster CPU clock.

Post it onto Google Drive for example and post the link here to the dump file.
You're getting a WHEA 4 - which as it shows there is a PCI Express Error. So the error is likely due to your graphics card.

How are you overclocking it?
What make and model PSU do you have?

Hell of a jump my friend!
PCI Express error doesn't necessarily mean the GPU itself is faulty, just that's where the stop error is occurring. A new GPU will identify if it is in fact the GPU though.
Will test the new GPU and will search for one which draws power directly from the PSU. I will let you know the results.
