  1. RX 580 crashing in gta v

    Hi everyone, not sure if this is the right subforum for this but I'm having bit of a problem with gta v. So it all yesterday two days when I updated my windows creator's update to the fall creator's update and updated my amd driver to the new adrenalin driver amd released. After the updates, I played gta v and it crashed quite a few times and randomly. First time it was after 30 minutes, I thought it was the new amd's driver so I DDUed and installed the previous amd driver I was using. Gta v crashed with that too, first time after 4 hours, then after 3 hours and after that in 15 minutes. So I reinstalled windows with the old creator's update I was using before updating to fall's creator update. That didnt help either as GTA crashed again within half an hour to 1 hour. Im going mad as I cant find out the culprit. I opened a ticket in rockstar support as well. Here's my windows event viewer and gta v's logs. Cheers
  2. It's the cpu bottleneck. CPU load remains the same across all resolutions whether it be 1080p or 4k, the CPU is whats stopping the PS4 Pro from reaching 60 fps in some games so lowering the resolution wont help.
  3. about nvidia's new gpu

    by literally staying under a rock
  4. PC / Mouse Lag on AMD 17.8.2 Driver ?

    Yes amd latest drivers have lots of issues. Try downgrading to 17.5.2.
  5. Massive FPS drops. GPU dying?

    Yes pubg eats up a lot of vram. My vram usage when playing pubg at 1080p is 5.5gb
  6. Hi, I had two power surges in the past two months. Each surge killed one ram slot in my pc so now I have a mobo with two dead ram slots. Now I can only use ram in single channel slots since other two are dead, i was thinking is there any way i could force those two slots to operate in dual channel?
  7. I have got these 70% isopropyl alcohol tissues, these are the best i could get. Would these be enough for cleaning off old thermal paste or should I use something else? And any other tips for someone installing a cpu heatsink for the first time?
  8. Link I wanted to ask is this cooler better than the cm hyper 212 evo? This looks the same as 212 evo but this has two fans. I wanna know if this one will perform better than the 212 evo or not?
  9. Hi, i have an i5-4690 (non k) cpu. I use the intel stock cooler but when i play cpu heavy games like gta v or battlefield 1, it reaches high temps like 81-85c max. I want to get a budget aftermarket cooler, so I searched and found the m9i. It seems like it would be good for me. Some people recommended me hyper 212 evo too but i read that cryorig m9i is a bit cheaper than 212 and m9i performs marginally better than the 212. Im going to be installing an air cooler first time so I'd like something thats easy to install. What do you people recommend?
  10. but if the sensor's busted wouldnt it send the wrong data to hwmonitor too?
  11. u see afterburner and gpu-z show 16% all the time whether im playing a game or its idling only hwmonitor shows the correct gpu load
  12. No, hwmonitor shows 0% and other two show 16%.
  13. All the programs are showing wrong gpu load except hwmonitor. I've even tried using DDU to uninstall drivers and reinstall the latest ones.
  14. Random artifacts on new gpu

    So I got my new rx 580 8gb about 2 weeks ago. I just uninstalled nvidia's drivers and installed the amd driver (didnt use DDU). So after 3 days of installing the gpu, i got pink artifacts all over the screen for half a second and they disappeared and everything kept working like normal. Few days after that I got pink artifacts on my screen while browsing reddit, same thing happened appeared for half a second and then disappeared. And 2 days ago, I got artifacts again while doing, cant remember what. So I wanted to ask if this a driver issue or should I return the gpu? Cause I ran several benchmarks and artifacts didnt appear in those. Temps are fine too, gpu core remains avg 75c under load and 78c max
