Gigabyte G1 RX 480 8GB Issues

Question asked by ngud on Jan 4, 2017

Hey all, I recently finished building my first rig just last week but have run into some problems regarding the graphics card. Everything boots up perfectly fine but since then I've had two BSoD's (involving the GPU but forgot the codes), and today a RSoD. The blue screens stopped happening after I ran DDU and installed the drivers from Gigabyte's website. But as mentioned earlier I had encountered a RSoD, so then I decided to update the drivers from AMD's site instead after running DDU.


Here are my computer specs (everything stock):


- Intel i5-6500 3.2 GHz

- Asus H170 Pro Gaming ATX mobo

- EVGA 600W 80+ psu

- Samsung 850 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 SSD

- WD Blue 1TB 3.5'' HDD

- Avexir Core Series 166GB RAM


pcpartpicker states no compatibility issues, but I've read that the gpu may be drawing too much power? It whirred super loud just once after restarting from the RSoD.


Any help would be amazing. Thanks for taking the time to read.
