Troubleshooting:

  • System initially built with R9 290 VaporX and ran for 1 month without issue. BSOD only seen since GFX upgrade.
  • DDU and rolling back to 20.3.1, 20.2.1, 19.12.1. Version 19 drivers had less BSOD but instead just crashed to system reboot.
  • Turning off hardware acceleration. No change. BSOD on loading videos on webpages.
  • Ran OCCT. No errors.

Re: Suggestions for BSOD fix for RX5700XT?

I was about to give up with a Sphire Nitro+ 5700 XT. Random reboots when playing, using windows etc. Tried all possible drivers, tricks, windows hacks. Nothing.

Then, I found a post about undervolting the card, I was suspecting a PSU problem, but having a 750 PSU when the recomended setting is 600W, I didn't want to believe. I tested the undervolting and the card started to work better, to the point I was able to play with not crashes. I ended up replacing my 750W bronze PSU for a 850W gold rated PSU. Clean windows install, latest drivers, everything worked as it is supposed to.

Hope this help someone else.

 

MOBO: Tomahawk 450B

CARD: Saphire nitro+ rt 57000 xt

RAM: 32 GB Corsair LPX DD4 3200

PROC: Ryzen 7 2700x

Water Cooling: ML240

PSU: Corsair RM850x

Re: Suggestions for BSOD fix for RX5700XT?

I'm glad yours is now stable. Mine has only ever crashed once in a game. Black screen, the game continued but with no display. Bit bad as I was side by side with someone in a sim race. Luckily I didn't hit them while having my inevitable accident. Where mine seems very unreliable is embedded video. When it blue screens, it often has the video frozen over the error screen. See attached.crash.jpg

I've stress tested mine, and even with GPU, CPU and RAM all maxed out the PSU stood strong. 650W Corsair.

Glad you figured out a way to get it working as it is supposed to. But here goes one question: Now that you have a more powerful PSU.. the card is still running undervolted? Or did you reverted it to stock settings?

I've not changed any hardware, I've just disabled hardware acceleration in Chrome.

The card has almost always been stable under load - Never over or underclocked or undervolted.

I reverted to stock settings on a clean windows install, latest stable drivers. Everything working perfect.

Re: Suggestions for BSOD fix for RX5700XT?

i fixed my system crash (no crash logs) by making sure the 6 & 8 pin power connectors are on separate power rails.

my Gigabyte Odin 800w power supply on can provide max 25 amps per rail and the 5700xt uses more then 25 amps (power supply resets around 26 amps).

not sure how high amp requirements are, my psu's monitoring software is jumping around ~22 amps on one rail and the other is ~7 amps

Re: Suggestions for BSOD fix for RX5700XT?

The CX650M listed as my PSU has a single 12V rail delivering 54 Amps. I have the card attached by separate 6+2 PCIe cables.
