PC crashes on High Performance Power mode

Hi, after 1 year of instability issues with the AMD 6900XT i have finally reached stability but only with those changes on power modes.

Using Ballance mode with CPU max at 97%. If i change maximum CPU at 100% system crashes randomly or if i change to Performance mode same thing happends, computer crashes randomly.

Computer specs are:

  • Motherboard: MSI B550 A PRO
  • RAM: Kingston FURY Beast, 32GB DDR4, 3600MHz CL18
  • CPU: Ryzen 5 5600X
  • PSU: Be Quiet! Dark Power 1000W
  • GPU: 6900XT
  • Windows 10

RAM and PSU was changed because i used to have much more instability tho the problem was mostly from GPU software drivers. System is stable only with 22.5.1 GPU drivers. I know that if PC is stable i could just let it be but why IN THE NINE HELS would increasing my CPU from 97% max to 100% would crash my pc randomly ( but often).

Does anyone have any ideea what the problem could be ?

Good day!

There can be many problems causing this PC behavior. From software errors to banal overheating or unstable power supply. We look at temperatures, voltages in the idle system and under load. Dumps are written, what are they called?

My personal opinion is that Windows power plans have never been able to work properly with any Ryzen processors, power plans from AMD 5000 series drivers are not used, and for 3000 series and earlier processors, power plans in the latest drivers are very poorly made, many errors.

Intel processors have a similar issue and the fix is to change the 'maximum processor state' percentage to 99% in 'Advanced Settings'.

YOU MUST REBOOT THE COMPUTER AFTER MAKING THE CHANGE

Alternatively, you can try custom power plans and test your PC for stability with them.

Generally it's the processor that is overheating and throttling or crashing. A good tool to run while your gaming/ having this issue is Core Temp > https://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/
