My build was working great for just long enough to allow me to install Windows and most of my programs/games. Then it started shutting off randomly. Event Viewer lists what is happening as "Event 41 Kernel-Power." I did some troubleshooting, and all the temperatures look good and messing with power profiles does nothing. Today I went out and bought a new PSU (Corsair CX650M) to rule out my slightly sketchy older 485W PSU being the issue. No change. Now the computer has developed a new issue: about 5-10 minutes after booting up and loading into windows, the sound output starts to gradually get more and more distorted. At first it's just a few clicks and buzzes, and then after a few minutes it sounds like it needs an exorcism. I reinstalled the Realtek audio drivers from ASRock's page, and nothing. Tried different speakers, different headphones, both the front audio panel and rear ports, nothing. I have the latest BIOS revision, chipset drivers, graphics drivers, and Intel ethernet drivers.
- Ryzen 3600 w/stock cooler
- ASRock X570M Pro4
- 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3600 CL18, XMP profile enabled
- Gigabyte GTX 1070 Windforce OC
- Inland Performance 1TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD
- Samsung 850 EVO 500GB (secondary drive)
- WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm (secondary drive)
- Corsair CX650M
- Dell XPS 8300 mATX case for now (yes, the pinouts for everything are compatible)
This is the audio issue about 6 minutes after startup:
...and then about 3 minutes later:
Any idea where the to even start with troubleshooting at this point?
