If I install nVidia drivers on my custom built desktop, Debian 9 freezes within 20 minutes of booting. When I boot with nouveau, I see an unknown chipset error at boot. I'm booting from UEFI and Compatibility Support Mode is disabled. I've reseated all of my hardware and tried running memtester a few times but found no issues. memtest86+ won't launch from grub. I don't think it's an issue with debian specifically either because this also happened with Kubuntu before I wiped my HDD and installed Debian but the freezes were much less frequent. Motherboard: Asrock AB350 Pro4 CPU: Ryzen 1200 GPU: Gtx 1060 6GB Ram: Gskill 8GB

A copy of kern.log after a freeze (The NVRM issues stopped after disabling CSM):
