Hi, I'm writing in behalf of my friend who's got this problem with bluescreens on new PC (new everything, pretty high-end build)

The PC crashes with black screen, the BSOD does appear but only after a few minutes of black screen. The code says DPC Watchdogs Violation. The problem occurs only during high stress, but not on every application. Games he crashed on:
ARK Survival Evolved about 30-40 minutes after launch
Astroneer about 15 minutes
Post Scriptum almost 10 minutes
Witcher 3 an hour or 1.5h
Borderlands 3 40-60 minutes
other games like War Thunder, Bannerlord or Ring of Elysium - no problems.

Things we already checked:
Temperatures are okey, nothing exceeds 80C
Ram Checke with mdsched and unplugging one after another
Repaired windows10 2 times
Updated IDE-ATA-ATAPI drivers with drivers on the local files
Tried updating SSD software but it says its up-to-date
Downloaded an application to update all drivers present on system and updated ALL of them
CMD sfc scannow with repair
Anti-Virus of course but it found nothing (malwarebytes)
Chipset Drivers

Nothing of these helped.

What application did you use for the drivers?

My first suspect would be the video card.

Do you have the stop codes or any other error codes?

What could be wrong with the video card? It works, no artifacts or anything like that, he did bought it from a discount for a very good price but it was untouched, originally packed and everything. I'll try to gather a bsod dump file

The app was driver easy.

He has to wait long time to even get the BSOD, usually he restarts the PC before it happens. There is no dump file in windows folder nor in minidumps, but maybe because its a very fresh install and he did not waited for full bsod, we'll try to catch this error again and wait for a blue screen to appear.

Tell me what kind of stop codes or error codes do you need and how to gather them.

We managed to solve the problem by ourselves.

Tried 3 things at once and one of them helped, not sure which one. We turned down XML profile just a little bit (from 3200Mhz to 3000, Ram should support 3200)
Uninstalled realtek drivers and installed another realtek from another producer site (could be Acer)
Clean Installed old Nvidia drivers, from January 2020.
