First I tried installing linux(Ubuntu), that was problematic because PC was crashing) so I moved to Windows.

I would occasionally get a BSOD, often while gaming, and funnily enough sometimes when PC would be stable it would not get into unstable state until I rebooted(standby was no problem),

I got irritated of that so I thought I should change the wifi module(I had realtek, now swapped to the official Deskmini Wifi kit).
This did not help, BSODs continued and got worse, eventually my PC became unbootable with corrupt SSD(I used Samsung PM981).

Now I switched to WD Blue SN500 500GB, Windows installation from USB crashes with BSOD.

Is there any fix for this problems? I have spent many days and 100+ euros on debugging this...

BIOS is the latest 3.60

Dear Booze,

Thank you for choosing ASRock.

We have test at our lab but cannot duplicate the symptom.
Please try to clear CMOS and install one stick memory at each memory slot to check.
If possible, please change another memory module to check.

Thank you!
Yours truly,
ASRock TSD

Hi,
I only have one memory stick.
As for clear CMOS...
I got the PC assembled and there is no little plastic thing to clear CMOs.
Do you have a suggestion how to do it.

p.s. I will try with using memory in slot B1, but from what I see that is problematic, current one, A1 is better.

Dear Booze,

Please find a paperclip or a metal things to short the clear CMOS pad.

Thank you!
Yours truly,
