Well this makes me lean more towards trying new ram. I can get new ram in a couple days compared to RMAing my CPU and waiting a potential 2 week turn around. I'll try that out and report back in a few days. I'll just have to reinstall windows 10 again once I get the new ram.

Got the new RAM in it's Corsair vengeance lpx 16gb. This was on the list of approved Ram kits on MSI's website. I'm trying it out for the weekend.

Reinstalled windows with the new ram. I tried to install the drivers before windows updating. I saw this error

Driver install failed, result=0x80240022 for devnode 'PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C03&SUBSYS_85AB1043&REV_A1\6&FA55729&0&0008000A'

after installing drivers and updating windows. Outside of MS Defender crashing after a restart from installing the audio driver nothing seems off but it could have been because I restarted it while it was updating.

I was referring to windows defender. I didn't pay attention to what windows update was doing after I installed my audio drivers.

I feel like my CPU is the problem. After I shut down my computer the power stayed on for 45 seconds and when I turned it on again it said there was an unexpected shut down.

I've had a few game crashes with the error "Could not write to memory". So I decided to check BIOS and wanted to know if I anything seemed off. I don't know maybe there is something else I need to do to configure the RAM.

Negative, nothing looks out of the ordinary.
"Could not write to memory", can be caused by:
-Defective Ram, which reminds me: Did you ever try Memtest86 on your new kit of memory?
-'Bad' 3rd party device drivers, which could be just about anything that's not Windows system drivers...
-Too many apps starting up. Check Task Manager > Startup for any unrecognizable apps.

I haven't run memtest86 yet. I was watching this video about tuning the memory and was debating running memtest86 and then checking the values to see if anything looks off. I was also looking at this reddit thread for it as well link.

Driver situation:

I've recently reinstalled my nvidia drivers and my chipset drivers. I know I reinstalled the AMD drivers after the bsod. I think the nvidia drivers were before the last blue screen because I was getting the following error.

Faulting application name: NVDisplay.Container.exe, version: 1.25.2802.9499, time stamp: 0x5e4ff156

From this forum post I've been trying to solve it. I didn't do the DDU in safe made then manual reinstall. I wanted to try and reinstall the driver then uninstall geforce experience to see if that was the issue. I didn't see the error again until today.

Basically yea, but the only way to know is tossing it into another rig and testing it there.
If not the CPU, then the motherboard South Bridge would be next on my list, but that's a non-issue as he is using the M.2 AND he RMA'd it twice.

MemTest86 came back good. I started the RMA request with AMD but I'm not sure if covid is going to affect how quickly they get back to me. Hopefully this will be the cause of all problems otherwise I don't know what to do other than keep RMAing my mobo or just buy a new one.

Got my CPU back last night. I haven't had much time to use it yet but I installed all my drivers without any issues. I'm trying the MSI chipset drivers this time. The only issue I had was windows stalled on an update, I waited 2 hours and it was stuck at 74%, I couldn't do anything so I had to restart but then everything installed correctly.

It's been 2 weeks and I haven't gotten a BSOD. I've gotten 2 errors about my previous shutdown was unexpected. I'm not sure if thats normal but I don't have any of the issues that I was having before. If that the unexpected shut down aren't an issue since they haven't been happening frequently I think my problem is solved. Thanks Phaaze88 and FoxVoxDK!
