Z790 Hero Could be instable? Discord and Games crashing.

Level 8

Since Helldivers 2 came out my pc has big stability problems. I had to make 2 clean installs, and a lot games now crashes often. Soon i will try a third clean install. Bios updated to 2102. Discord in particular keeps crashing and crashing. 

Win 11 pro


strix 4090 OC Edition

RAM DDR5 Kingston Fury 5200 2x32


Level 7

I had a similar issue, found here:

Check your windows event logs for critical event logs for the relevant applications you're having issues with.

In my case it was almost always memory errors, something like:

Exception code: 0xc0000005 (0xc0000005 is a memory access violation error)

If you are seeing those, with what I experienced, and the current issues high-end Intel CPUs are facing, update your bios to 2202 and use the Intel settings profile for your CPU and see if it stabilizes.

In my case, core 4 of my 14900kf had been damaged and was constantly throwing errors and needed to be RMA'd.



I can't link to a specific hardware or software  error. I have tons of those:
