Dear community,


since a few days I experience random monitor shut downs whilst playing Playerunknowns Battlegrounds. I have to switch it back on then. After a few minutes of gameplay it starts to appear and even after closing the game it still goes on every now and then. Everything works well all the time even with other games (until I start playing PUBG). I tried a lot of "hotfixes" including


- playing the game in windowed mode,

- switching GPU scaling off

- scaling mode fullscreen



CPU and GPU temps are okay, no power supply problems, system works normal apart from that issue

ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 480 OC 8GB
Crimson 17.11.1 (tried 17.7.2 aswell, same problem) - no ReLive installed

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE @3,6 GHz
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 970 RG SA
D3 8GB 1600-999 Ripjaws K2 GSK
Samsung SSD 132 GB


beQuiet! Power supply
Windows 7 64 bit
Hopefully anyone has a solution. Thx
