The system is fresh ~2weeks or so


Radeon RX 5700 XT TUF X3 OC GAMING

Windows 10 64bit 1903

Adrenalin Driver  19.7.5 (currently)

AOC AG271QX 2560x1440p 144hz monitor

Asus TUF B450-PRO GAMING bios version 1820

Ryzen 5 3600x

Corsair CX650 650W 80 PLUS Bronze

G.Skill 2x8GB Ripjaws V, DDR4 3200MHz, CL16


The problem looks similar to what most people are posting about but maybe its different.

My problem is games freezing for a few seconds and then pc would restart.

No display input or a game simply crashing to desktop happened perhaps twice in 2 weeks.

No crashes outside of games and temps look ok.


Games i tried so far all with native resolution and mostly high settings all running smoothly.


The Witcher 3

Crashing anywhere from 5minutes to 1hour, can happen at any time in cutscenes menus or just playing.



Mostly running for 15minutes - 2hours and in one game every time a certain ability(Will-o-Wisp) was used. No luck trying to reproduce that one.


The Outer Worlds

So far only one crash in main menu and one in ingame menu ~8hours played


Borderlands 3

no crashes


Hollow knight

one crash



one crash


What i have tried so far

Driver versions 19.7.5 /19.9.2 / 19.11.1/  19.11.12. Clean install with DDU and no internet/ normal install / manual install without amd settings. Perhaps not every method with every driver version however.


Default wattman settings /  undervolt / underclock

Various memory speeds and power settings


Possibly 19.7.5 feels most stable cannot say for certain if that is the case. Maybe there is a magical combination that works?

Problem something else?
