Windows 10 New Install Freezing & DPC BSOD, works in Safe Mo


My newly-built gaming PC will not run Windows 10. I installed it and can't log in. As soon as the welcome screen appears, it freezes and stops with the BSOD DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION.
However, when I boot Windows 10 in SAFE Mode (w/ Networking), the OS runs perfectly normal. Driver Easy is confident my drivers are all up to date, I'm not sure what to do..

My specs are the following;

- Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X + Wraith Prism Cooler
- Graphics: Crossfiring 2 AMD Radeon rx570 series' 8 GB * 2
- Ram: HyperX Fury 2666Hz 16 GB (4GB * 4)
- Motherboard: ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Extreme

Please, tell me if you need more information. I need this solved ASAP. Thank you!

And You've Followed All The Steps In This Link?

First, DON'T use Driver Easy to check for correct Drivers. It frequently fails. Instead, visit the website for each of the various devices on your computer, starting with your motherboard drivers first (BIOS, chipset, etc.), then visit all the other device sites as well (graphics, sound, ethernet, etc.). Install the latest drivers for your devices from each site. Make SURE you've got the latest BIOS installed. Then follow the steps in the link below:

You should be able to do it in Safe Mode.

Hope this helps.
