Hello there,

i have a AMD Ryzen 5 3600x ,
MSI GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB GAMING X,
MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX
At the moment i have a Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB DDR4-3600 CL18.
But i keeps making problems...

What RAM would u recommend?

I suggest running memtest86 for 5 passes. there may be an issue with one or both of the RAM modules and memtest86 is made to find them.

also verify in the BIOS that the proper voltages are set for your modules

Already did Memtest...4 passes 3600Mhz
4 default (2 single 2double) 4 passes 3000-3400Mhz all on error...

Today i cleared the Cmos...Where can i find the proper Voltages?

voltages will be in the BIOS settings.

for strange gremlins like this I suggest booting into Linux as a hardware test.
Boot to a USB drive with linux on it. grab a USB drive, a copy of rufus and a linux distribution.
http://distrowatch.com/ has tons of differing linux distributions and download links. I personally am fond of linux mint with cinnamon.
https://rufus.ie/ the utility used to extract the ISO file to the USB drive.

use rufus to extract the selected ISO to the thumb drive. it will make the drive bootable and you can run linux from the drive once done.
Reboot into linux and proceed to test the hardware. connect to internet, watch videos, await problems.
if linux is good and stable the issue is most likely inside windows or otherwise software related.
this is a test of the hardware.

what is your PSU?

I try it later, but i think it’s 100% Hardware...

my PC crashed when i try to reinstall windows

Is there a way i could test the other hardware (CPU, GPU)

jup, today my PC crashed only once (playing games etc. worked okay)

What Parts should i swap first (this was the original idea behind this post to swap ram)?
Can u recommend specific benchmarks?
