Ive had an rx 480 nitro 4gb for about half a year now, and it was fine up until around 3 months ago when it started to crash on games ranging from Heroes of the storm dead by daylight friday the 13th (as you can see not very stressful games) it comes up with fatal error and crashes my game or just goes complete black screen and my pc needs to be manually reset. Ive tried so many things and the problem still persists.


Checked RAM and hard drive both fine

Fresh install of windows no difference

Changed power supply no difference

Changed all my wattman settings to what i saw was recommended to someone else worked for 2 days and back to the same problem

Reinstalled drivers with DDU no difference
