Try RAM first. That's easy.

Power supply is also a common cause of random shut downs.
I had enabled "Enable Power nap" and that was the reason for instability. I disabled it and its working okay. Thanks for the suggestions, PC.

Regarding the DSDT edit for sound. Is it impacted by graphics card i.e. if I create the DSDT for sound whilst I have HD4000 graphics, do I have to do anything if I update to a (supported e.g. GT710 or RX560) graphics card in the future?

I don't think you have to.

Has anybody got a 8300 CMT and upgraded/changed the CPU cooler? I was aiming to, but think (happy to be corrected) HP have used a non-standard cooler with rectangular mounting holes (~72mm x 104mm spacing) when standard would be square?

Hi @dorincalugaru thanks for the input. However I'm looking for something to replace the entire heatsink / fan assembley on an 8300 tower version. It looks like your model numbers are "just" fans? I did the measurements and a 92mm fan won't fit on the existing heatsink.

For anyone that has upgraded to a RX560, did you have to change your profile from iMac 13,2? If so, what did you change it to?

Thanks!

Is anyone having a problem with FaceTime receiving calls from an iPhone on 10.14.4 Mojave?
