My R9270x card keeps crashing when playing games, not sure if its getting too hot or if its a driver issue. How do I go about trying to figure out whats wrong?
Any help would be awesome, thanks.
we need a lot more information to help , complete pc specs , games it crashes on , running temps of cpu gpu " I myself like to use msi afterburner on screen overlay to see real time temps / usage while gaming "
thanks for the reply, here's a paste of the summary of my specs. I'll install afterburner and check if i can spot anything.
I'm currently playing Diablo 3 and Middle Earth - Shadows of Mordor. Same thing happens in both games, screen goes black and there is game sound looping in the background.
I don't know about diablo 3 , I've never played it , but middle earth will easily run over the two gigs of vram on the 270x . an easy way to test the gpu is to run a gpu benchmark and see if the gpu shuts down or not . heaven 4.0 is a personal favorite of mine to test gpus with
Right, so I installed Heaven 4.0. First run crashed under a minute, second time was about 5 mins before the crash. GPU temp never goes above 65. Any ideas?
if you're sure the psu is big enough for the gpu then I would contact the manufacturer and ask for a rma
Thanks, sent the card in to be tested, lets hope it is faulty!
