Are you sure you can run with just one memory module?
Especially for the ryzens, they like dual channel, you'd have to look at the mb doc to see which slots are which.
on my mb, it's mem-a mem-b mem-a mem-b and the mem-a slots would be populated first.
But go by what your mb doc says.


Yes you can run one single stick no problem, it's much more recommendable running in dual channel though as you get more performance, but I only did it to further isolate my problem, and passmark just passes fine, but my gentoo still hangs, so don't think it's a memory related problem :(

Guess it's the processor as I first thought, or a buggy unstable bios, but I don't know where to look to find logging errors.

Las time I booted my system I saw this on the boot screen

Code:

 0.001215] __common_interrupt: 3.55 No irq handler for vector

It's possible it's the cpu, though I would think more the bios as I didn't see anything in the little blurbs about bios, mentioning the new ryzens.

Might be worth getting a hold of msi support and at least asking if the bios will handle the new ryzens. It could also be a bad MB, rare, but I've gotten bad boards.

Where did you get the CPU?

So it seems I finally found the culprit, I think it's de vga... a really old vga from Nvidia. Tried using the tty and it does not hang or reboot or freeze, I just finished updating my system with no problems, errors or warnings at all. I'm using an 8800GTS 512 while I wait to buy a new gpu, it seems nouveau drivers was causing all the trouble (could not compile legacy proprietary nvidia drivers against my 4.9 kernel).

I should verify with another gpu before claiming the mistery is solved though.

I bought my 5800X online in my country.

Nouveau is a tricky beast. I used to run it but I got tired of the sometimes stranges issues with nouveau and I didn't want to run nvidia blob, so I swapped over to a slightly older amdgpu, rx 550, no problems with amdgpu at all. Having said that, the ones newer than the rx 5x0 series sometimes have trouble (too new), had an rx560 but moved it to an old box w/windows, I put together just for old games.

Anyway, glad you found or at least think you've found the problem.
