RX 5600 XT random black screen reboots (Kernel Power 41)

Hi, I have random black screen reboots ( Kernel Power 41 ) in games like Far cry 5 ( had crush every afterfight cutscene) / Rainbow Siege ( at char selection \ loading menu) / mk x ( after final score) all crashes were not in  hard action  (web and discord to but I turned off acceleration ) with ddued old windows and then with new windows / drivers / all disk cleared / bios and hardware acceleration discord / firefox off. Before  changing to rx 5600xt ( max power comsumption 150-180W) had msi r9 380 4g ( max power consumption 190 W) and all components worked perfectly and  I had 0 black screens ( after stable adrenaline changed to 2020 ( and many ppl had driver not found error ) with stable drivers ))

Same problem started happening to me recently out of nowhere on my AMD R9 Fury, just amd things, going nvidia next time for sure

I`ve never had a kernel power with my r9 380 4g from msi on 2 psu`s , idk but may be you rly have a psu trouble? Or  balanced power mod in windows ( not high power ) . The only problem I had with my r9 380 was in games without fps lock and with my 144 gz monitor r9 tried to push all her limits with 100 degrees and amd chill fixed my problem with fps lock. I hope it will be helpfull for you cause I had awsome expirience with my r9 380 + FX6300


Is there any sound during these freezes like TRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR before the pc reboots?


no, there are only dark and quiet .


I've got the same problem, but I hear sometimes my pc's audio, sometimes there is this TRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR sound, and sometimes there's just quiet. Can anyone help me?

Ram is overclocked?Set to default.After i reduced speed and add more voltage,no more black screens(20.7.2).Maybe it help you.)

I am having this issue now, and i have run out of return window, so i am either stuck with this card or gonna issue RMA. Have you found any solutions yet?
