    I'm getting these more an more frequently. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for it either. My computer can be totally idle and I come back to it and it's locked up or I can be simply reading something on the web and it might happen. Can anyone offer any support on this?

    You have not included THE most important part; the pw supply. Post the exact pw supply you have installed. Next have you checked your temps and voltages under load? If not, do so. I never use msi boards however I do believe msi has monitoring software for your mb. It is called command center. Here is a link to the support page for that board; https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/Z170A-KRAIT-GAMING.html#support_download
    It should be under utility. Install and run something that will stress the system ie prime95 or IBT. See what your temps and voltages are under 100% load.

    One other thing I notice on the support page. There are a LOT of bios updates that address memory compatibility and stability issues. Some of these updates were released only 3 weeks after the previous update. When you see this [many updates to attempt to fix a problem] it often means there is a basic problem with the board. Bios updates for new cpus are one thing however numerous updates to fix compatibility problems are another.
