ASUS Maximus VIII q-code 40


I built my system a few years ago and some days I am able to play games uninterrupted but on other days the system crashes and the q-code on the motherboard is 40. I tried looking around online for a solution to the problem but there isn't anything that directly correlates to my situation. Based on what I found online the qcode has to do with the system waking from sleep but I always start up cold and never put the system in sleep mode. I tried tracking the temperatures of my system and the CPU stays around 44 degrees Celsius and the GPU anywhere between 40 and 60 degrees. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Also I recently upgraded to the rtx 2080 from an asus strix 970, not sure how relevant that is to this situation though.
