My computer crashes and restarts every time I start a game on my RX 480

- Radeon XFX RX480 8GBs

- AMD Phenom II X6 3,2Ghz

- Asus M5A78Lle

- CX 600W

- Corsair Dominator Platinum DDr3 8Gbs

- Software version: 16.11.4

I am very worried, started in a match of CS Go, then for all the games I tried to initiate FIFA, CS: GO, DOTA 2, at the time of starting the game he would restart. I tried to update the software, however I am in version 16.11.4 and the problem continues. I thought it might be something on the hardware more because before the board was running normally.

Can you help me ?

PS: Sorry for the mistakes, I'm Brazilian and I'm writing with the help of google translator.

What video card you used before?

What's resolution?

I think you have a mainboard 'entry-level' with 4 + 1 phase even cooled by a heat sink, so it could not make it.

The power supply may be enough ... how long has it?

How much watts delivers on the line + 12v?

I link to a review page for your video card ... scroll the page for PSU reccomendations:

Good afternoon and thanks for your help.

My old video card was an ATI Radeon HD6770 DDR5

My resolution is 1080p

What if I used the board for two months with no problem and started to just submit now?

What could be happening?

I think That the mainboard VRM pass have slightly worn to an extent that they can no longer deliver the 75W to slot PCI_Express 16x.

Or it could be the power supply for more or less the same reason.

You should do some testing ...

Have a nice day!
