Adept I

Powercolor RX 5700 XT red devil black screen and reboot

So I've been having some issues with my graphics card lately and am hoping someone can help. The card keeps giving me unregular black screens and sudden system restarts. I've tried everything from a bios update to only installing te drivers and not the adrenalin software. Now I tried the undervolting and overclocking as a last resort to get the system working stable but it still crashes. Weirdly the crashes don't occur during stress testing or benchmarking the graphics card. There seems to be no obvious connection between high GPU usage and the crashes. At one point I thought my PSU isn't delivering enough power but then one would expect the black screens at high loads right?

Does anyone have any tips for a near desperate team red player?

My setup is as follows:

MSI B450-A pro max motherboard

Ryzen 5 3600

Corsair Cmk16Gx4M2Z3600C18 Vengeance Lpx 16Gb (2X8Gb) Ddr4 3600Mhz C18 Xmp 2.0 High Performance memory,

Kingston A2000 1TB flash drive 

be quiet! Straight Power 11 550W.

Running a windows 10 64-bit fully updated and the 20.12.1 driver/adrenalin version. Any help would be much appreciated.
