Can anyone help me get my computer stable??

I can't make it through cinebench multicore stock bios. The only thing I changed in the bios is the RAM to 3466MHZ. I just want it stable. I just tried to render a 10 minute video in Camtasia and it restarted in the middle of a render just like cinebench. It gives my the error message "Overcurrent has been detected on your USB device and the system will ... USB device and the system will shut down in 15 seconds to protect the mainboard." All my usb ports are fine. my rig was working fine for 4-5 months. Not sure if its a bios issue. Last know time I could get through cinebench all cores was on bios version 7C34v17(11-7-2019), but it has been a while since I tried after I upgraded the bios. Running AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan. I can get through the day running fine as long as I don't hit all the cores for a long period of time.



My Rig:
3900x with stock wraith cooler
X570 (7C34v192(Beta version))(I had 7C34v18, same result)
Corsair Vengance PRO 32GB CMW32GX4M2C3466C16  (approved list)

Corsair Force MP600

nvidia geforce titan x (maxwell)
CORSAIR RMX Series, RM750x, 750 Watt, 80+ Gold

I have had difficulty getting the ram up to speed for a while. I get random reboots, but especially when I stress on the cores with the over current protection message above. I can run cinebench with a single core most of the times. I took off the wraith prism and reapplied artic thermal paste, which didn't help. Can get through memtest86 either. It reboots maybe for the same reason as cinebench and camtasia.

I am pulling my hair out.

Any ideas are appreciated.

Could I know which version of Cinebench you use? R15 or R20?
It seems to be overheating, you could use HWiNFO to monitor CPU temperature as video shows: https://youtu.be/9YOgtpz3ZBo?t=42

And could the issue solved after flashing the BIOS back to v17 again?
The Overcurrect error seems to be hardware issue, may be broken component of mainboard.

Ram settings can change a lot, I suggest to try at default.

The cooler is also quite weak for a 3900X especially with the quite aggressive settings the Godlike applies at stock settings.

Even my liquid cooler had a hard time cooling it.
