Hello, I recently built a pc with amd rx 480, the 8gb version.

When I play Overwatch or GTA V (these are the only games I play), after a minute or so my monitor shows a grey screen, my speakers make a screech-like noise, and I have to hard reset the computer.

This also occurs while running 3dMark Benchmark.


My PC build:

     Gpu: Rx 480 8gb

     Cpu: Intel i5 6600k

     PSU: Sentey 725W XPP PSU Series (Model: XPP725-HS)

     OS: Windows 10 Home

     Monitor: AOC E2752S HE

     Mobo: MSI B150 Gaming M3

     Ram: Crucial DDR4 2133 4gb stick (x2)

     GPU driver: Radeon Crimson ReLive 16.12.2



I tried reinstalling the driver, but the problem persisted. I also tried installing driver version 16.6, 16.7.3, and 16.7.1, but this didn't fix it either.

I used DDU to uninstall the drivers.


Lowering graphics settings didn't fix the problem, at first it seemed to, but alas, it did not.
