Having a situation with my 9700K w/ my Aorus Pro motherboard I'm hoping I can get some perspectives on. So I've gotten my 5ghz (@1.35v) OC to pass 1) Prime95 (non-AVX) overnight, 2) TimeSpy Stress Test for 3dmark (EVGA Hybrid FTW3 2080ti OC'd), and 3) mem test for 8 hours (corsair ballistix @3200MHz ). Both games I play (division 2 and wildlands) that tax the system run absolutely fine for hours.

Yet about every other day, just twiddling in windows, the computer has either hung or BSOD with apparently nothing stressful running. I've got good cooling (GPU loads at 55C and CPU at low 60s). I've turned off all the power saving features and set it on Turbo in bios.

I'm head scratching why my system has hung when I'm "doing nothing."
