PC Issue.

Ok, so I have a question. I currently own a ASUS B450 ROG Strix, Ryzen 7 1800x, 16gb DDR4 3000 cl15… my power supply is a 650w Seasonic Semi Modular 80+ Gold and my GPU is MSI RX 470 8gb Gaming X. Untill recently it worked great, suddenly im freezing 2-3 times a day when gaming. Could my GPU or PSU be going? I have tried changing drivers and nothing has helped. I was having some heating issues with my GPU at one point untill I added in some extra cooling options… during such time I did have some freeze problems as well from things. I ran /sfc scannow found no issues there either…
I did have some issues with my GPU back on the FX 8320/MSI 970 Gaming Mobo as well at times with similar problems.

Oh and my bios are up to date as well.

Did you overclock anything?

I have tested this with Overclocking & No overclocking… both ways this has continued to happen… Right now im not overclocked at all and just had to reboot about a hour ago.

So I talked to several people including some people on the AMD Official Discord who says the issues sound like my graphics card. I am holding off on my PS4 Pro till Feb and getting a graphics card incase it is my GPU dying. Sapphire RX 5700 XT Nitro+ perhaps.

Well, of course they said it’s the GPU. They just baited you to buy another of their GPUs. Very nice lol

It can be the HDD/SSD. Maybe it’s faulted.

If possible get an nvidia gpu. I was using amd my whole pc using life up until the r9 fury x…then amd stopped making high end cards. Then I went nvidia and I’m not going back for the foreseeable future.

Same as @gord0 but AMD is still great for CPU. Also, gsync is the besssst.

RTX 2060 Super or RTX 2070? I will have a look at them and prices have had many tell me to go with the 5700 XT but willing to give Nvidia a shot.

Whichever benchmarks better. Don’t go with AMD until they start going toe to toe with nvidia again. In the same way they started going toe to toe with intel again.

Alright just have to wait till payday but if this sale stays on I found a MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z for $399 on Amazon Prime.

I thought the same thing at first about the HDD/SSD but after running checks on them most of the morning they keep coming back clean.

On the bright side, even if the problem wasn’t the vid card, you’ll have a better vid card lol.

Right? My current RX 470 8gb Gaming X has been nice but yea. lol

It will destroy your current card

I just looked at a comparison and the division 2 at 1080p ultra the 2070 gets 50 fps over the 470, for example.

Update: After testing hard drives, testing with and without overclocks or undervolts…I came to what maybe a conclusion on the problem. To much overclock/undervolt because I noted a few bad settings in my overclock that was causing some stability issues while testing. I been running with no overclock, no undervolt, only the core precision boost and XMP turned on for a day now no issues… going to give it a few more days like this to see if im right… @Katsuo gave me the idea with his question so I did more testing… I believe it could be to much undervolt is the cause.

Yeah, step one should always be to roll back what changed. Undervolt and/or overclock is always a possible cause for any kind of graphics issue.

Was it just the cpu overclocked/undervolted? Or cpu too?

Just the Processor cause I could never get the GPU to overclock and stay stable have always just ran it at stock.

You should probly still get that vid card lol
