Hey guys, so I recently upgraded to the Ryzen 3700x, but for some reason, games/stream program has been crashing out of nowhere. On my old cpu(Ryzen 1600x) I ran my corsair memory at 3000mhz which is what the ram is rated for. So I just installed my new cpu, which is water cooled with H100i and thermal griz paste changed the memory from 2133mhz to 3000mhz and 0 boot issues. Everything is working fine. I can use my pc however I please, but when I try to game, the game will just crash about 30 minutes after use. This happened to me in both Fortnite, The Long Dark, and OBSstreamlabs. Super weird, never did I have this problem with my 1600x at 3000mhz on the ram. Now I did change my ram speed back to 2133mhz and the games did not crash but I am very confused on to why this is happening.

Rig: Nothing has been overclocked

Make sure the voltage is set at 1.35 when selecting 3000 mhz. If it defaults to 1.2 then it could be the issue. What type of crash are you getting? Any blue screen messages?
Okay I will try that. No blue screens, just game crash to desktop. I can just relaunch the game/program.
