      Status: UNRESOLVED/SOLVED

      Computer Type: Desktop

      GPU: Asus RX 480 8GB Factory OC 1310

      CPU: Intel i5 6600K @ 4.6GHz

      Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus VIII

      RAM: G.SKill TridenZ DDR4

      PSU: Corsair CXM 740W

      Operating System & Version: Windows 10 A Edition

      Description of Problem: RX 480 would crash during games ranging from Red, Brown, and Black screen crash. Did not happen to my GTX 780. I do notice a coil whine during benchmark, Can't confirm if it's PSU or GPU. However It's extremely random and does not happen when browsing web or light games like Prison Arch & Skyrim.

      Troubleshooting: Solution I tried but did not work

      • rerolling to 16.7.2 and using DDU in safe mode (More Stable performance but still crash)
      • Tune down CPU clock speed to 4.0GHz (CPU was not problem)
      • Undervolting GPU via Wattman at Stage 6 & 7 at 1250 (default 1280 & 1310)
