Hi Folks,


Issue:  System will freeze, mainly to a Solid Green Screen shortly after starting a game, tested with several games including Need for Speed Heat.  The same issue occurs also when playing light games such as Minecraft.


Motherboard:   Sabretooth 990FX R3.0 (BIOS 0212)


CPU: AMD FX 9590 - 8 core 4.7 GHz


RAM: 16GB - Crucial BLT8G3D1869DT1TX0.16FED ( 1866MHZ 9-9-9-27 1.5v)


PSU: Evga 1000G


Graphics: Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX5700 XT 8G GDDR6 Dual HDMI/Dual (UEFI) Special Edition

PN 299-3E409-000SA / SKU 11293-05


Windows: Windows 10 Pro 64Bit (1909) fully updated (Tested with fresh install)



Tested with different HDMI monitors and a TV


Tested with a variety of Graphics Drivers: 20.1.4, 20.1.3, 20.1.2, 19.12.2, 19.10.1, 19.9.2, 19.8.1, 19.7.5


Tried all sorts of BIOS settings / System configurations / removed all non-essential components (Drives etc.)


Disabled all game bars, background tasks, windows game mode etc.


Tested RAM / HDD / CPU etc.


Nothing of note logged in the systems Event Logs


I can replicate issue by running GPU-Z and running the Texture test, generally this causes the solid Green Screen within 5mins.


Tried pretty much evey sugestion listed on this amd forums

After spending many, many frustrating hours on this issue, I have run out of ideas! 


Can anyone help?
