    But good to hear it's running for ya now.

    NOOOO! I might have celebrated too early. I got a new BSOD error :(

    driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

    Still my PC was stable for ~30 minutes before that happened.

    What speed XMP Profile are you using right now? 2400? If it is 2400 try bumping the CPU/NB up +.05 to +.10 and retry. That'll help the IMC stabilize 2400 over it's rated 2133. Watch your temps as always!

    Also, look in CPU-Z's Memory and SPD tabs to find the XMP Profiles that lists a Command Rate of 2. Try the ones that show CR2, it's not uncommon and you really don't give up much as the iGPU thrives on Mhz.

    I wonder if i could ask what all the timings are for your memory when you next jump into the UEFI please, when selecting XMP profiles.

    necro-update:

    It seems like what caused issues for me when choosing 2400mhz profile was my PSU. I was using 450w 80+ bronze with 7850k+270X. I realized what the issue was after installing new case fans. I noticed that one of the fans was not spinning but led's were glowing and occasionally system would restart for no apparent reason.

    Anyway, I got AX860 instead (a little futureproofing for the future 4K needs too) and now all my vents are working and 2400mhz is stable simply by choosing profile 1 without bumping voltages.

    Link below is a 1.83 version of BIOS that ASRock sent me to fix memory clearing issues. Also with official 1.70 BIOS version the shared memory was set to auto and it would use 78.8MB as hardware reserved but with this newer version it reserves 1GB when on auto. Should I change the value manually since I'm using a dGPU anyways?

    Wow!

    Talk about riding the razors edge regarding a failing PSU. Good thing you caught the fans not spinning.

    Monitoring voltages and you would most likely have caught that too though.

    Glad to hear you finally got to the root of your problems there.
