Hi there.


I've had HD 7850 for 3 years and it worked fine all the time.

Now I decided to get a more powerful card and bought Sapphire 280 X Toxic. This new videocard made all my installed games crashed in 1-2 minutes of gameplay while old HD 7850 was working fine.

I got my money back (thought it was a specific card defect) and bought Power Color RX 480 8gb. But I got the same result - any game is crashing in 1-5 minutes after the start.



12gb RAM


Windows 7 reinstalled.

Drivers reinstalled 5 times.

Bought a new PowerMan 1000 Watt power supply.

Switched GPU frequency from 1279 default to 1255 (since 1266 is AMD nominal I guess) and lesser.

Switched to default Wattman settings for a specific game (Witcher 3).

GPU temperature is about 65-70 when crashing.

Fans are rolling well.

No any error messages for Witcher 3 and Fallout 4.

Default Windows error message for MWO and Warcraft 3.

Full game stop for Dying Light.


Any suggestions to solve this?
