New build (first custom water cooling build) pc crashing after a few minutes of running any game but it perfectly normal while doing any other tasks. Ran out of ideas and dont know what else to try.
Have Done full RAM test, CPU and GPU benchmarking getting 100 FPS AVG temps about 50c at full load. Not sure what else to do.

What is the error code/message?
Once i noticed it said watchdog error and the other times im not sure because it only stays for a second and i cant read it fast enough, it just restarts. Ive googles watchdog violation and did most of what I found and still having issues. I also did fresh install of OS games driver etc and removed over clock

Well, if you've tried everything, it could be a faulty RAM module. Try playing around with your RAM sticks and check if it works with different combinations.

I used windows memory diagnostic full scan and it showed as a pass with no issues found. Could there still be an issue with ram despite that test?
