I' trying to find the cause of this issue which has been plaguing me for some time;


When the pc runs it runs well which it often does. ie playing games with out issues (the division 2 and fortnite)

I often edit and export videos at 4k etc with no issues: But there have been times where I'm half way through an edit in premiere pro and the monitor would go black and i would have to turnoff the psu and disconnect the graphics card power and reconnect it to restart. I don't know what the issue could be. crossing off one thing at a time. The ram is not an issue as i have already returned the previous pair due to some more serious problems which have been since resolved and have not returned.


I'm convinced its either the graphics card, some software settings or the PSU.
