RX590 occasionally crashing the system

OK, so here is the problem, I've tested every possible component in my system, and all is pointing towards either some of the driver incompatibility or GFX alone.


I have Win10Pro 64bit
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (stock) + CM Hyper TX2 (with TX3 fan)

ASrock B450M Pro4

2x8GB DDRIV Kingston HyperX (stock 3.2GHz, BIOS setup)

Biostar 480GB SSD

3 SATA WD Black drives

Sapphire RX590 Nitro+ OC
Antec 700W PSU

all in NZXT Tempest Evo


Running dual monitor setup (2x1080p) with HDMI audio on first monitor.


Occasionally I got just crash without any indication what it could be, sometimes system freezes for second or two then it just runs normal, but sometimes system freezes for same amount of time and then my sound is messed up.


I am somehow sure it is either GFX card or driver issue, but if it is GFX card it doesn't make any sense since it could happen whenever, if it is not under load, if it is under load, if I just watch YT or video etc.

None of my components are overheating, or were overheated. All of them are basically new, same thing happen on older PC (FX-8350) and only two components are left from that old PC, that is GFX and SSD (both around 1 year old).

Did anyone have similar problems, my next thing is to bring GFX to seller to test it if it is faulty, SSD was already tested and it is not faulty. But due to COVID-19 outbrake I will pospone it a bit.

Thanks in advance
