Previous shutdown cause: 5

Hey guys, I'm really needing some help. I've successfully installed Mojave 10.14.6 and for some reason keep getting random shutdowns, even with the most minimal tasks. When I look up the shutdown log it's showing "Previous shutdown cause: 5" which means "correct shutdown" - makes zero sense to me. If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.


Gigabyte Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming
Sapphire Pulse RX 580
Samsung 960 EVO 500GB NVMeM.2 SSD
Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 Memory
Corsair CX Series 750 Watt Power Supply


All of my parts are brand new, I would say under a year old. This is a clean install and the only thing plugged in is a mouse and keyboard. I've uploaded my config.plist and a screenshot (couldn't upload my EFI as it's too big). I'm literally about to throw in the towel on this build.


Thanks so much

Done. Now it's just rebooting after verbose mode. Here's a log I found, hopefully this helps. I don't know of a way to save a Clover verbose log?



EDIT: I was able to edit the SMBIOS on boot from 19,2 to 18,3 and it started fine. Maybe that was the issue?
