PC still crashing after bios update

I've just upgraded and installed a new cpu in my system (from a ryzen 5 3600 to a ryzen 5 5600x) and now my pc will crash in games after a few minutes. The crash type varies between a BSOD saying WHEA\_UNCORRECTABLE\_ERROR and just black screen then restart. The things I have done so far is updating my bios updating all drivers reinstalling CPU drivers.

​

Specs are

MOBO = ASROCK B550 Phantom Gaming 4

RAM = 16gb Corsair Vengeance LPX

CPU = Ryzen 5 5600x

PSU = Corsair 750w forgot the rest

GPU = ASUS TUF 3070 Ti

Hey there,

Just to be clear. Did you update the bios before inserting the new CPU?

Did you do a CMOS clear after the bios update?
