My printer randomly freezes partway into the print whenever I use the combination of Marlin 2.0, TMC2208 stealthchop, a 3:1 geared extruder and an E3D 0.9° stepper in a Bowden configuration on the E axis.

Is this a reasonable combination that other people have got working or is it too high of a step count (830 steps/mm) for this particular driver? If I change one of these factors it prints normally but not when they are all used together.
