My pc gives random BSODS that load so fast that i can't read(or instant shutdown and reboot during bsod). I have this problem since July when i replaced my cpu cooler. This problem started after a few days since i replaced it. First bsod happened during shutdown one day. second time a Bsod with a restart, third a Bsod with an instant shutdown and reboot.. And it continued for 3 months randomly.

Mouse cursor is lagging when i try to delete event viewer logs for example, and event viewer freezes during that process..

I did 4 windows reinstalls from usb drive, i replaced my ssd with an old one, i did stability test with Aida64, prime95(didn't crash during stability test)

Could it be my ram memory?

My pc specs: Mobo: Aorus b450 elite
CPU: ryzen 5 1600af(60 degrees C max)
SSD: 970 evo plus 250GB
GPU:2060 RTX, 6gb, Msi ventus xs
PSU 600W seasonic bronze
Deepcool gammax 400 v2
RAM: 2600mhz Corsair vengeance rgb pro OC to 3200 16-18-18-36

Thanks for your help.

Can you follow option one on the following link - here - and then do this step below: Small memory dumps - Have Windows Create a Small Memory Dump (Minidump) on BSOD - that creates a file in c windows/minidump after the next BSOD

  1. Open Windows File Explore
  2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump
  3. Copy the mini-dump files out onto your Desktop
  4. Do not use Winzip, use the built in facility in Windows
  5. Select those files on your Desktop, right click them and choose 'Send to' - Compressed (zipped) folder
  6. Upload the zip file to the Cloud (OneDrive, DropBox . . . etc.)
  7. Then post a link here to the zip file, so we can take a look for you . . .
What ram sticks is it? are they rated as 3200 as if so, Corsair probably tested with that board - https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Memory/c/Cor_Products_Memory?type=motherboard&manufacturerSelection=Gigabyte&systemModelSelction=B450 Aorus Elite&maxModule=8&minModule=1&maxCapacity=128&minCapacity=2&page=0&sort=popular&view=listView&filters= though not at those timings

Gigabyte tested 1 corsair set at those timings - https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Memory/mb_memory_b450-aorus-elite_summit.pdf?v=6eabecfe9625c1c7b8acd8b48767dbde

i don't get bsods everyday, it might take a week to get one. Could you help without these logs? I remember that when it did bsods i was getting volmgr error in event viewer. Failing to create a log. One time i got GPU DRIVER ERROR. i updated all drivers

maybe cooler on too tight or needs to be looked at as if problems only started after it, I would look there.

Are you using the Samsung nvme drivers?
might help to use them if you aren't
they on this page, just scroll down.
You can also run Samsung magician on the drive

if one was GPU drivers, could try running ddu in safe mode, uninstall GPU drivers, log back into normal mode and reinstall drivers again - https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-perform-a-clean-install-of-your-video-card-drivers.2402269/

I will try to remove the cooler and see. Could thermal paste affect it? I applied arctic mx 4 on it(a pea grain). i didn't screw my cooler that much, maybe i should screw it in more. One more question, what if the screws aren't screwed enough? Could it cause bsod?
