Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have aN 8700k overclockedf to 5ghZ , an EVGA 2080 XC overclocked and 32GB of G Skill Trident Z 3200 MHz RAM. I have 2 Samsungf 1TB 860 Evo SATA SSD's and a 970 EVO M.2  500GB SSD and a Samsung 680 EVO 1 TB M.2 SSD. I have a 1440p 1440HZ monitor and a couple external HDD's and Courseair RGB Platinum keyboard and Logitecg G900 mouse and a FocusRite Scarlett witth Alesus Monitors. Good Setup/ Im sure there's more I;m forgettingh (Case Fans etc). Is a EVGA 650W 80+ Platinum Power Supply enough. I keep haveing (few) crashing issues in games. Mainly GTA V and a few tearing issues in others. I have lowered a clockspeeds (CPU, GPU, RAM, and I have the same issues but just worse FPS. Is it my PSU?

reset your CPU, memory and GPU to stock speeds and see if the crrashing continues. If it does, then it's probably the power supply, but 650W should really be plenty enough.

 

if the crashing stops, then the overclock (or at least part of it) on your cpu, memory and gpu is unstable and you'll need to go through one by one, putting the OC back on until you find what component was causing the crash.

Sounds like your OC is just unstable, most likely the GPU, since you are getting artifacts. CPU OC's just lock up the system but don't cause artifacting. Run at stock speeds and see if problems persist.

 

If it still crashes at stock speeds, something is wrong with your PC. Either PSU, or GPU dying would be my guess.
