RX480 RED Screen of Death

Hi there,

 

Specs:

- Asus Sabertooth P67;

- I7 2600K;

- 12GB G.Skill Ripjaw 2133 at 2133mhz;

- Corsair AX750 (80+ gold);

- Asus Strix RX480 (with latest Asus 1.02 Vbios installed);

 

 

This RX480 has only given me troubles since day one I upgraded from my old GTX570 that for 6 years I havent got a single problem...

 

PROBLEM:

 

Now lately I cant play Battlefield 1, the PC freeze after just a bit and then a bit later the screen is all RED and a bit further the PC restart...

 

 

Is it really a defective GPU or might be other problem?

 

Anyway as soon as I get time I will RMA this GPU and see if the store can still upgrade me to a GTX1070, but its already too late. If the second RX480 I get is like this one, I wont ever buy a single product with "AMD" written on it.

 

 

ps: I'm beyond pissed since I never got a single problem with my GTX570 for 6 years and didnt ever go to Nvidia forum, but since day one I upgraded to AMD almost every game crashes\freezes, get more cpu stuttering that I never had with my I7, grass on games look out of detail and grainy\dotty (made a report like 3 weeks ago or more and got no AMD answer either)...
