    I would recommend downloading and running something like memtest86 or memtest86+. Non-paged area faults are sometimes a sign of a DIMM going bad.

    What make/model are the NVME drives that come with the 51M?

    For general usage the difference is minimal. If you use memory intensive apps then that speed will help you, because 5-10GB/s of added speed at same voltage in dual channel mode is really helpful. Then again, 2667MHz are made from Samsung B die(even Micron/crucial,sk hynix) aka 1Y DRAM which promises 10-15% performance increase at 40% power savings.

    Oh yes you do. You pay $4,000 and cannot run a game and two browsers?

    Hmm I have the very sneaky suspicion that something is terribly wrong with the motherboard that they had to limit the RAM down to 2400MHz to keep it stable. Just a hunch.

    With x50 you should go though the steps.

    Cause
    Bug check 0x50 can occur after the installation of faulty hardware or in the event of failure of installed hardware (usually related to defective RAM, be it main memory, L2 RAM cache, or video RAM).

    Another possible cause is the installation of a faulty system service or faulty driver code.

    Antivirus software can also trigger this error, as can a corrupted NTFS volume.


    Resolution
    Gather Information

    Examine the name of the driver if that was listed on the blue screen.

    Check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device or driver that is causing the error. For more information, see Open Event Viewer. Look for critical errors in the system log that occurred in the same time window as the blue screen.

    Windows Memory Diagnostics

    Run the Windows Memory Diagnostics tool, to test the memory. Click the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type Memory, and then click Diagnose your computer's memory problems.‌ After the test is run, use Event viewer to view the results under the System log. Look for the MemoryDiagnostics-Results entry to view the results.

    Resolving a faulty hardware problem: If hardware has been added to the system recently, remove it to see if the error recurs. If existing hardware has failed, remove or replace the faulty component. You should run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer. For details on these procedures, see the owner's manual for your computer.

    Resolving a faulty system service problem: Disable the service and confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer of the system service about a possible update. If the error occurs during system startup, investigate the Windows repair options. For more information, see Recovery options in Windows 10.

    Resolving an antivirus software problem: Disable the program and confirm that this resolves the error. If it does, contact the manufacturer of the program about a possible update.

    Resolving a corrupted NTFS volume problem: Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and repair disk errors. You must restart the system before the disk scan begins on a system partition. Contact the manufacture of the hard driver system to locate any diagnostic tools that they provide for the hard drive sub system.

    Can you open it up and resit the RAM a few times?

    Are you referring to both Intel HD Graphics and RTX 2080 being on at the same time?

    I wonder why that is as with their previous G-SYNC models, the iGPU was completely disabled.
