  1. I'll give that a shot when I get free time to head over to his place
  2. ISSUE: So a friend of mine recently built a new computer and as of a few weeks ago it started crashing randomly when in a game and gave no BSOD. These crashes were not happening when he first built the PC. Together we've gone through a number of possible solutions, from updating drivers, adjusting game settings, removing the restrictive front cover on his case for better airflow, and even rebuilding the machine thinking the poor cable management might be a cause but nothing has worked. I went and installed HWINFO to watch temps on the GPU, CPU, and chipset but nothing seemed to spike to high. The only consistent thing we noticed was the system crashing shortly after the GPU reached ~60-65c. We also noticed that the fans on the card never changed speed, staying at at 1500rpm throughout each session we tested. My friend also notes that the computer crashes only when playing Apex Legends and Risk of Rain 2. Apex seems to crash after a match or two and Risk of Rain only when playing with uncapped frame rate. Both crash without BSOD. SPECS: CPU: Ryzen 7 3700x RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000MHz GPU: RTX 2080 Super Founders Edition Motherboard: MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge Wifi (MS-7C37) Power Supply: Corsair CX750M I don't believe the problem is thermals and believe it may be the power supply but a 750w should be enough for this type of build right?
  3. This totally worked! Thanks so much for the suggestion, I guess it must have been a driver issue but all is right in the world now. Also going to be adding DDU to my bag of tricks so thanks a bunch for that!
  4. First post time! Ok, so I have an AMD RX-580 and have had it in my system for a little over a year now. The card itself was pulled from a Dell prebuilt gaming computer a friend of mine had swapped his GTX 1070 into. Yesterday I went through the laborious of installing a new 1tb Samsung 860 Evo, a fresh installation of Windows 10, and all my software / drivers. When the process was all said and done, I noticed when looking in task manager my 580 was showing up as a 480. I’ve looked around online and found that some people had purchased cards online that were just reflashed 480s but those seemed to be from direct purchases of cards through online retailers, not cards preinstalled in a system advertised as having a 580. I’m at a complete loss as to what to do here, I have double checked the card for barcodes / model numbers and everything points to this card being legit but what would be causing my computer to read it as something else? My Build: CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X GPU: AMD RX-580 8GB (RX-580DE PA7055 HF) RAM: 16GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance RBG 3200MHz (Running at 3000MHz) PSU: Corsair CX750M MoBo: MSI x370 Gaming Carbon Storage: 1TB Samsung EVO 860, 1TB WD Black, 1TB WD Blue OS: Windows 10 Home Images below to prove I’m not losing my mind here... This is a screenshot I took in Minecraft two days ago, before I did the upgrade, clearly showing the detected GPU as an RX 580 And here is the CPU-Z readout I did last night after noticing the change... Here are some photos of the actual card
