RX 590 nitro+ causes system reboot every time a game loads

Hello folks,

I'm in need of help because my new SAPPHIRE RX 590 Nitro+ causes system reboot every time a game loads...


I've tried to run 3DMark's "Time Spy Dx12" bench but the GPU keeps crashing in the 1st phase.

All the existing drivers are showing the same result: crash and reboot


The "time till crash" increases but still happening using a Power Limit of -50%.


All the games that I have tried are crashing after the loading screens, for example:

  • PUBG:
    • At first I've managed to get in the match lobby, but now the game keep crashing after the loading screen, just after some frames of the game menu/game lobby.
  • Battlefield 4
    • The system crashes after the map loading screen, just before the first frame from the game engine is rendered.


Someone knows a way to fix this issue?


Thank you in advance


My system specs:

CPU: FX- 8370


PSU: Corsair VS650

RAM: CMY16GX3M2A2400C11 running at 1866Mhz

MOBO: MSI 970A SLI Krait Edition - BIOS P.4 latest bios available


OS: Windows 10 64bit



I've tried to change te clock speed in WattMan and I'm currently able to run the gpu at 1365Mhz without any issue.

I'm using this configuration:


I've tried to increase the freq. speed to 1430Mhz (the one used by WattMan default profile) but the GPU crashes.

I've found an anomaly:

While at 1365 Mhz the GPU consumptions still a solid 90W-110W when I try to run it at 1430Mhz the consumptions is constantly under 95W...

Since the freq. is higher the consumption should be higher too, am I right?


I'm really struggling with this one... Seems like something is wrong with the GPU or the drivers...


EDIT2: I was trying the stability at 1365Mhz but it crashed in 3DMark.... I'm out of ideas :/
