5950x/3090... 6 BSOD's so far

It is a CPU problem, I am pretty sure.
Unfortunately, Ryzen 5000 has pointed bad binned CPU generating a lot of RMA to AMD.

a lot of threads on Reddit, AMD, overclock.net show exactly the Gimmles issues.

It may be so, but it's curious that we have a number of people with different AMD models on different Asus motherboards all with the same problem presenting in the same way in the kernel dumps. I hope we eventually get to find out exactly what this issue is, but I'm not convinced we will....

If AMD doesn’t communicate on this (and this is the case), we will never know...

I received my PC this morning (5900x and Asus Crosshair VIII Hero) and will see if I get same issues, rapidly or in the next days.

I am not a PCS employee, I am not a moderator here, but PCS should maybe take into considerations these issues with Ryzen’s in order to adapt their stability tests specifically.
It is strange that the Gimmles PC was delivered with this issue.

do you know the number of people ordering at PCS rigs with Ryzen who got these issues and who RMA’d their PC ?

If you get BSODs please upload the kernel dump that results. Don't bother with any minidumps, they don't contain the necessary data structures. :)

I'm not sure what not being a moderator has to do with the price of fish(?) but I'd hope that you're right here.

It's strange that all of the builds I've been involved with were delivered with this issue.

No, I have no insider information from PCS at all, and I don't work for them. I'm not even sure they'd make this kind of data public in any case.

for the fact to know if a lot of people who ordered at PCS with Ryzen for these issues, I was talking about the potential people who post on the forum such issues.

I'm not sure...really think hammering things needs to have, say, a hammer involved? As good as Memtest is, not convinced it's very good as a hammer ;)
Just as well really, because when the only tool you have is a hammer then everything looks like a nail...!

[pedantic mode on]
Test 13 in the series of 13 tests that Memtest does is called 'the hammer test' :p
[pedantic mode off]

Happy to report Memtest ran with 0 errors overnight! 🥳 Seems like the problems were all just some bad RAM. Strange, as that would mean more than one stick of RAM given to me was faulty, as I tried multiple RAM configs!

Of course, I'm still nervous- waiting for that next bluescreen, and if it does happen I'll be sure to report back! 😂

It is always possible for more than one stick to be faulty...generally pairs or more of RAM will come from the same batch and run to ensure they are as identical as possible so it's possible that batch/run had an issue. Of course, it could just be pure bad luck :(

Sometimes a problem doesn't evidence till after testing as PCS can only test so much....at a guess, I'd say they have a programme that tests the system in a certain way...they start the programme and then leave it to run...whilst it may stress test the system, real-world situations can often stress systems in a diffferent way
