Journeyman III

RX 5700 XT constant Green Screen Crashes while playing games

Computer Type: Custom Built Desktop

GPU: PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x at stock frequencies.

Motherboard: MSI x470 Gaming Plus | Bios version: 7B79vAH

RAM: 16 GB Corsair Vengeance RGB 3200Mhz.

PSU: Nox Urano VX 750W 80+ Bronce

Operating System & Version: Windows 10 Pro | Version 2004 | Build 19041.572

GPU Drivers: 20.10.1

Chipset Drivers:

Background Applications: Discord

Description of Original Problem: When playing games (Squad, Mordhau, The Witcher 3, Deadside,...) my Rx 5700 XT will always crash with a Green Screen. Sometimes it takes 2 days to crash or 5 minutes, but always with a Green Screen.

Troubleshooting: I've tried the following solutions with my graphics card and not a single one worked:

· I removed the drivers with DDU and tried 20.10.1 / 20.9.1 / 20.2.2 / 20.4.2 but the same error persist.

· Installed the drivers without the Radeon Software.

· Changed the HDMI cable from an older one to a 2.1.

·Change the energy plan to High Performance.

·Switch the order of the PSU cables.

· Ask amazon for a replacement for the PowerColor Rx 5700 XT (I had diferent issues with the one that I replaced, the replacement only gives me Green Screen Crashes).


To be honest I don't know what to do anymore, I replaced the card hopping that the problems will go but that's not the case. I don't know if the problem comes from my system which is incompatible with this particular graphics card or the card that amazon gave me as a replacement is faulty again.

I will appreciate your help.

Red Devil or Red Dragon? or basic Dual fan version?
Make sure no 3rd party OC tools.
Possible it is your RAM.
