I've done a full Windows re-install using Windows 10 2004 booted onto a USB drive using Windows Media Creation Tool. I've not encountered any issues explained above after the clean install. Currently on Adrenaline 20.7.2.
Oh, thank you, was not aware that there was a newer BIOS version than 1407 (I forgot to change the BIOS version from 1201 since I just did a copy/paste ). I've updated the BIOS now and I'm ready to test if the crash will occur while playing Squad. I'll keep you posted!
UPDATE: It happened again, about ~10 minutes into playing Squad. This time just a few seconds before the crash I saw a flicker across the bottom of my screens, like a white block covering the lower 1/3 of the monitor that lasted for about a frame or two. The the green screen happened but this time it normally restarted without any problems.
EDIT: I should also note that now I'm getting the following message in Adrenaline Software after the crash: "Default Radeon WattMan settings have been restored due to an unexpected system failure.
Can you provide a picture showing the internals of the PC case?
Is it possible to try the GPU in a different system?
As you have not yet tried disabling hardware acceleration in browsers or in Discord, i would try that next.
Hi Matt, here are the pictures you requested. The GPU is located in the first PCIe 4.0 X16 slot (Both slots on this MB are PCIe 4.0). It has ample cooling with 2 case fans acting as intakes. Sadly, I've got not secondary system that I can test my GPU in, but regarding the Hardware Acceleration - I'll switch to 20.7.1 from my current 19.7.5 and disable these options and test again. Best regards.
Hey Matt, I tried this already when I first got this new PSU. When I first built my PC it had a really weak PSU and the PC kept shutting down when playing games so I got a new one and I was told to use separate cables and I did, but It didn't help at all. In essence, nothing changed. For some reason I am 100% stable on 19.7.5 where I basically get 0 crashes no matter what.
EDIT: I should probably note, when the crash is about to occur on Adrenaline 2020 edition, my Windows taskbar flashes for a second even though I'm in game with fullscreen. Not sure if this is a sign of Adrenaline Software crashing in the background or what.
Even so, you should use 1 cable each as this can cause issues.
Please let me know how the outcome of your testing with hardware acceleration disabled.
I found a threads on a reddit in which people with a similar configuration shared a problem, after a crash and reboot of the pc in the event log they got a WHEA-Logger Event ID 18 Cache Hierarchy Error. The error began to appear after the May update on version 2004. And of course, all participants in the thread accidentally had rx 5700 series gpu's.
