Games crashing to desktop no errors

So few months ago I upgraded my Mobo, ram, and CPU.
Since then I haven't been able to play games with out them crashing to my desktop with errors or BSOD.
I took it to a repair shop and they told me a CPU core was bad, so i replaced it and now Im not getting BSOD or errors when i play demanding games (Squad, Arma 3, miscreated,PUBattlegrounds, but Rising Storm 2 Vietnam works fine), they just crash back to desktop.

I've replaced the Harddrive, GPU, PSU, CPU, now im contemplating on taking back the Mobo and replacing it as well as the Ram.

Anyone have any ideas? Ive posted multiple times with no avail

  1. You have to reinstall windows if you change motherboards.

    That was the first thing I did was do a fresh install and update ALL my drivers.
    So i know for a fact that's not that problem, I've done fresh installs about 3 times now

  3. Crashing to the desktop is weird, because... if it was a hardware fault, the entire computer would shutdown.
    Are you 100% sure you're not bringing over ANY old data from somewhere?
    What about the motherboard BIOS?

  5. Not the drivers, the BIOS: the pre-windows thing. Look at your mobo's download page, should be a section just for BIOS.

    Its the ASRock AB350M Pro4 board, I'll download them again and reinstall to make sure, but I'm 99.8% sure its not the Bios.

    PS my Bios version is P2.10

    See, you should have told me you have a Ryzen system. BIOS updates are extremely important for system stability with Ryzen.
    There have been 3 BIOS updates for your board, the latest is 2.50: http://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/AB350M%20Pro4/index.asp#BIOS
