So i built this computer from scratch about 6 months ago, and about a week after i first started with it i began having constant crashes from certain games, with Stellaris, Arma 3 and Dying Light being the 3 biggest ones. Nothing in particular will trigger this crash, it could be 3 minutes after i start a game, could be once an hour or i could go 5 days smoothly and the issue starts occurring again. Stresstesting, benchmarking, and PC health checks don't raise any red flags, all (ALL) of my drivers are up to date. I've looked at every online tutorial and even a few locked threads on this forum and followed the fixes they suggested, without any success.
This is my last resort, or I'll just have to call on the warranty and swap out for something less buggy like an Nvidia card because this is seriously game breaking.
