Ryzen 5 3600 + RX 580 black screen!

Question asked by admiral_carrots on Jul 16, 2019

Hi, I just upgraded my CPU from 1700X to 3600 using a B450 board. 

 

However, when I tried to play games, it always went black screen like boof, no sound nothing, just black screen every 10 mins of playing. 

 

I tried:

- uninstalling the graphics drivers with DDU and install the latest radeon drivers

- (same as above) installed older drivers

- increase fans speed up to 90% on 65C at wattman 

 

none of this works

 

HOWEVER, watching youtube, browsing facebook, idling, etc (not gaming) is perfectly fine. 

 

I tested it with Unity Bedroom demo and the GPU has 79C max temp. I also tried with 90% fan speed and... still black screen!

 

I'm using DP output and Freesync enabled. 

 

Everything was perfectly fine when I'm using 1700X!!!! This is just wow.
