New PC build:
intel i-7 6700k
asus z-170-a motherboard
gigabyte rx 480 8gb card
windows 10 64 bit
2 sticks of corsair ddr5 ram (8gb ea)
corsair 750w gold power supply
Lg ultrawide monitor 60hz 1080p
Driver: I currently have 16.6 after reinstalling but i also had problems when i updated to 17.1 radeon crimson
Hey everyone, I hope that it is okay to post this here but i just installed my new gigabyte rx480 8gb card yesterday and it seems to be almost un useable. Every game i run crashes within 5 minutes and i am required to hard reset my computer.
I get a black screen during games and it requires a hard reset. When I reset i get a messages in the bottom right of my screen saying it was because of an unexpected wattman error and system settings have been restored.
-This has happened about 10 times today but happens as soon as i run any game.
- the games affected so far are fallout 4, ark survival, and smite: the initials crashes occured on maximum settings but still occured during minimum settings.
So far i have tried to:
- reinstalling all of my drivers (no option to avoid installing wattman) -adjusting my cpu/power usage to dynamic ( and undervolting) in the wattman settings
Any help would be appreciated as i would like my card to be useable!
