Hi, so I built a new PC back in april, but was having a lot of random freeze or BSOD. About 1 a day in average. Always on cpu's low load/idle, never when gaming or coding.

After multiple reinstall of Windows and dozen of tests on hardware and drivers without finding any issues I tried disabling c-state in the bios and didn't get any issues for the last 12 days or so.

Not sure if that means that my CPU is bad or if something else could cause the issue?

Wondering if re-enabling c-state and changing the CPU lite load mode could help but not too familiar with that setting.

Any thoughts or downside by keeping the c-state disabled? Except for the heat and higher energy consumption of course.

By the way, here is my build https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/jmn/saved/#view=m3ZWD3
