first of all I like to share my speccs:
Intel i7 6700K
ASUS Maximus VIII Hero Intel Z170
16GB G.Skill Trident Z DDR4-3466 DIMM CL16 Quad Kit
PSU: PURE POWER 9 | 700W CM be quiet
I installed two RX 480 retail from Sapphire = Crossfire
I switched from an 3570K to the i7 with a new board etc.. I didn't make a new install of
Windows 10. Everything worked good, approx. 3 days. After the 3 days windows told me,
that I need to reactivate it, because of the hardware change. Okay sure, no problem, I know
the reasons for that.
I use the upgrade of Windows 10, FYI.
The next step was to install windows 8. I didn't installed any drivers and upgraded to windwos 10.
After a while I receive the above mentioned blue screen. It is fully random. Under load I didn't have
any Problems. I did an 3D Mark Fire Strike Stress test, result = 99.5 -> it just fine. I only get this
blue screen in windows (desktop).
So what I made until now =
- Run one GPU -> same problems
- Updated BIOS
- Swtiched to windows 8.1 with all updates and current drivers
- Switched to windows 10 again with updates and current drivers
- Used the driver: 16.7.2
- Used the driver: 16.7.1 - when I changed the drive I made a clean uninstall (DDU)
- Updated Direct X SDK
- I don't use any overclocking
I would say, the driver is the problem and I need to wait.
Or can somebody give me some hints?
Frustrating! After this, I wish me a GTX 1070 :-(. I switched from a GTX970
in order to give AMD a chance again, I still hope it was a good idea .
Sorry to hear you've been having issues. Which OS are you using at the moment?
I would recommend a clean OS install. Fully update that OS until all updates are installed.
Download DDU and run it to remove the Windows Update driver which would've been installed.
Download Crimson 16.7.3 which was released yesterday and check to see if the same issue occurs.
