Hello everyone,

 

 

I'm having pc crashes while gaming since 2 weeks already. I've checked temps of both cpu and gpu while gaming (idle cpu 20° / gpu 35°) / (while gaming cpu 30-35° / gpu 60-65°) got i5 6600k and sapphire r9 390 8gb nitro, the pc itself has 3 years never had ANY problems with it.

Anyways, after checking temps and whatnot i've run stresstests too see if it could be hardware problem, no faulty components. The crashes usually arrive after 20mins of gaming, my screen just goes full black, sound goes away after few seconds and i have to manually force shutdown/restart.

 

 

It doesnt matter which game and on what settings i'm playing, the pc freezes/crashes  anyways after sometime.

 

 

I've done a fresh windows reinstall the 27th november, pc went flawlessly for 3 days, then yesterday the crashes reappeared again. since the windows reinstall i've downloaded and reinstalled only drivers for gpu/cpu, steam, few games, teamspeak and discord. thats it.

Anyone knows what could be causing all of this? it's driving me crazy..

 

my specs:

cpu i5 6600k

gpu sapphire r9 390 nitro 8gb

psu 650w xfx ts650g (80+gold)

MB msi z170a krait gaming

hdd wd10ezex

ram 2x4gb hyperx fury 2133 cl14 kit

cpu coolermaster hyper 212 evo

ssd Crucial CT240BX300SSD1 240gb
