    Hello everyone. I am having a real issue figuring out why I keep getting intermittent


    System as follows

    Xeon e5-2690v3

    Huananzhi X99 F8 motherboard

    64gig DDR4 2133 ecc

    NVme samusng 970 ssd

    MSI gtx 1660 super gaming x

    The system started giving me sleep / WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERRORS

    wouldn't wake

    would wake with whea

    would restart from wake

    I tried various things including:

    sfc/scannow in cmd

    Tweaking repair utility in safe

    reseating memory

    checking temps

    After several changes, I reinstalled os. Wake issues seemed fixed, then started again.

    I had the video card overclocked, so I reset it to normal no change

    I had the had the memory timings tightened, which were run for 12 hours on memtest for stress stability. I losened them. still getting issues

    I have made a bunch of system adjustment, which are recommended for sleep issues and it seem to be working now, but I have been fooled before.

    I am attaching the minidump. Same every time.


    Would love any ideas on how to straighten this out
