Since a few days my PC keeps crashing many times a day (sometimes bluescreen/sometimes blackscreen, where I have to turn the pc off manually).
But it seems pretty random, when it crashes and I cant really replicate it. Sometimes its under load in games, but then I can play games 2 days straight without any problem and then it crashes while surfing.

PC was built like 3 years ago. The 2 Samsung SSDs were added about 1,5 years ago.
A few weeks ago I wanted to upgrade my ram and replaced my 2x4 GB kit with a 2x8GB kit. And while I was on this I reseted my pc.
This all worked for like 2 weeks and then crashes started happening, like I already described but these were mostly bluescreens.
Of course the main sus was the ram, so I tried using my pc with the single sticks of the kit and tried differned slots, still didnt work. I used the xmp profile and adjusted the timings the way they were written on the ram stick itself. Both didnt work. I ran 1 pass of memtest 86 without an error. Then I used my old ram kit but it also didnt work and my pc kept crashing.
So I tried to search for the part that was causing the problem, I run many types of benchmarks but I came to no conclusion.
Some other things I noticed / I tried / I want to try
In the last couple of days it were mostly blackscreens
The PC freezes but I can still move my mouse for a few seks until the screen turns black.
While the blackscreens happens the debug led of the cpu on my mainboard lights up
After one crash my pc boots really slow and keeps crashing a few times after some seconds in windows. After some crashes it starts working again.
All the temps are fine
Bios on updated
I tested all the drives with CrystalDiskIndo/Mark
Things I can still do are cleaning my whole PC
reset my pc again
do all the drivers again
And today I got a new psu, because thats my main suspect now after reading some more about these kinds of problems.
Thas all the information I have, just ask if u wanne know something.
Thanks in advance!
