RX 480 Crashing PC

Hey everyone,

 

I recently bought a Sapphire Nitro+ Rx 480 and I have had some problems since then. This is my first PC build so I made sure to meticulously check everything along the way. My computer works fine when I use it for normal tasks, for example, web browsing, YouTube and other basic stuff. But every time I decide to play a game the PC crashes after 10 to 15 minutes. I have checked and tried everything and nothing has worked so far. I tried DDU to uninstall and reinstall the latest drivers, tried to tweak the fan control and temperature in Radeon Wattman and Sapphire Trixx. I checked the card itself and found nothing. I tried to decrease the voltage or increase it and it didn't work. I am really out of options as I checked the rest of the hardware and everything works fine. The temperatures of the card are good in idle as well as in work. I really don't know what the problem is except that it is a defective GPU. I am using the latest Crimson drivers. (17.1.1)

 

My setup:

Motherboard: Gigabyte H110M-S2H

CPU: i3-6100

Ram: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2X4GB) DDR4 2400mhz

GPU: Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 4gb

PSU: Corsair VS550 550 watt

OS: Windows 10 pro 64bit
