Anyway you can test with components? maybe a friend whose gpu you can test with ...
Sadly no, I have moved to a new city where I don't know anyone like that. I was thinking about picking up a cheap GPU and seeing if I can recreate the issue. I'm just worried that I will get something that can't produce the wattage to reproduce the issue.

Try and run furmark+aida64 (cpu stresstest) at the same time, see if that changes anything.
I ran them together and then did aida64's stress test for the cpu test no problem. How long should I run it?


I am now getting a new error when it restarts.

WHEA-Logger - 18
Code:
A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor APIC ID: 6

The details view of this entry contains further information.
Does this help at all? Thanks again!

So when stressing the cpu you get a bluescreen? Can try this,
Help Troubleshoot the Blue Screen of Death by Preventing Automatic Reboot


If you only get this when stressing the cpu is it stil hard to say. Above suggest a cpu fault, but that get's relayed by motherboard and ram so difficult. Might want to start to look and RMA.
Maybe at AMD support someone might be able to say if this could be cpu itself. Maybe just see what and if it gives something for that bsod. Need probably to stress the cpu again for that.

I never saw a blue screen, but if it's the graphics card, then it would probably reset before you can see the blue screen. I should have known this.

I recently to the PC to a repair shop and there were able to recreate the issue. They're currently trying to sell me a liquid CPU cooler even though the CPU and GPU don't go much about 70. I think I'm going to go down and just pick up my PC.
