    New Build crashing ONLY in PUBG

    As expected a clean install did not resolve the problem. Requesting a new riser cable from Phanteks. May start the RMA on the 2080ti.

    Yep, for sure.

    New Build crashing ONLY in PUBG

    Only bare minimums plugged in. I haven't tried a full reset of windows yet but that'll probably be next.
  4. New custom water cooled build Ryzen 2700x / 2080ti that I ran air cooled fine for a couple weeks, and ran fine for a few days after liquid cooling (after tracking down some issues stemming from PSU). Today, within a couple minutes of playing PUBG the screen goes black and the monitor says that it's going to sleep, so it lost connection to the GPU. However, noises still play through my headphones and the discord call even continues. I have run Aida64+Furmark for an hour with no issue. I have played Battlefield V for an hour without issue. I've fully uninstalled and reinstalled multiple versions of the driver Updated my BIOS Uninstalled and reinstalled PUBG Monitored temps (all within reason) Reset everything possible to reset back to factory. Reseated the riser cable going from the motherboard to the GPU. The issue itself feels very hardware related to me, I'm an experienced technician but am at my witts end looking for outside opinion. Bonus glamor pics of the new build.

    Need help with UPS

    What matters more than your PSU size is what hardware you actually have in your system (or if you happen to know off the top of your head how many watts your system draws). You are probably not drawing anywhere near 650w if you have a normal gaming computer, certainly not under normal usage scenarios. TLDR; 630w UPS is almost certainly big enough for your needs.

    1080ti/Kraken G12 problems

    No. I did confirm that there must be SOME contact and SOME cooling taking place though. I unplugged the pump all together while it was idling and the temperature did start to creep up and it went back down once it was plugged in.

    1080ti/Kraken G12 problems

    So I installed the Kraken G12 with a corsair H105 onto my ASUS Turbo 1080ti. It idles right at about 32c but as soon as there is any load it goes straight to 80+C and thermal throttles hard. I've verified that the pump is running and everything else is wired up good. I reseated the cooler being extra careful to get it tightened evenly. It visually looks like the block is making contact with the die. Same thing. So finally I tried using a little copper shim between the cooler and the GPU. Same results. I'm not usually one to need to ask for help but I'm just straight out of ideas. EDIT: I'm using Arctic silver V thermal paste with each application.
