Okay, really really long story short. I built 2 new PCs in July, both almost all identical specs.One for my son and one for me. Mine has been a nightmare.

After about a week of usage I starting noticing that Chrome acted really weird, crashing and giving access violation errors Then the BSoDs came. They came in a wide variety, name it and I have seen it, but the one that came the most was APC_INDEX_MISMATCH. I tried to get help via the Microsoft forums. Here is my post there including minidump files.

APC_INDEX_MISMATCH BSoDs with dump files, please help - Microsoft Community

So after literally months of trouble shooting, trying just about anything you can Google. I have finally got the BDoDs to stop, mainly because of info I read on this forum where a fine user here said that
ntoskrnl.exe BSoDs usually occurred when voltage to CPU wasn't set correctly. I set an offset of +/- 50mv in my bios and poof, no more BSoDs!

However...

Now, through a small sample of playing, I have experienced CTDs on almost any game I play. A step in the right direction, but I have to start thinking that maybe I have hardware issues.

What I have done over the trouble shooting process:

Swapped out memory, swapped out GPU, bought a new SSD, RMA'dmy mother board. I have literally tried my sons components in every slot except my CPU.

I got a new PSU

I ran 6+ hours of memtest 86 with no errors

I have reinstalled windows 97 times

Most of the CTDs I get now dont even leave EventViewer logs so I cant see why it is happening.

I am seriously, and I mean seriously, at wit's end.

Here are my specs


AMD Ryzen 5 3600
MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi
MSI 1660 Super Ventus XS OC
32 GB (2x16) Corsair Vengeance Pro
Corsair RM750 PSU
2x 500gb M.2 SSDs (One is WD Blue S550 and the other is a Corsair)



Honestly at this point I feel like RMAing the CPU and GPU and hope for the best, unless someone smart here can help.
