Errorless Crashing on GTX 1080 w/ i7 4790k

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! As of the past week I've been running to a serious amount of crashing issues on my PC. My specs are:

  • i7 4790k @ 4.2GHz
  • ASUS Strix GTX 1080
  • 16GB DDR3 1333MHz
  • MSI Z97 Gaming 5
  • 256GB Samsung EVO SSD
  • 1TB WD Blue
  • Corsair Builder 750W Bronze Certified

I understand that some of these parts are a bit old, but I see no reason why the parts alone should contribute to my crashing issue. Over the weekend, I noticed crashing on Civ 5, Valorant, and COD Warzone, all games that I have been able to run perfectly fine for the past couple months/years. I used HWMonitor to watch my temps while testing Warzone and my GPU and CPU never rose above 80 and 70 degrees, respectively. Just today, Valorant started giving me a driver out of date error upon crashes. At least according to GeForce Experience, my drivers are up to date. There isn't any visible artifacting right before any of my crashes occur. The game freezes and I land back on the desktop. 

 

Over the past two days, I've been running 3D Mark Firestrike, Unique Heaven, and Furmark stress test to see if there were any stability issues with my card. Firestrike originally crashed the first couple tries but after removing my custom power plan it ran fine. Both Unique Heaven and Furmark did not crash. I attempted launching into Valorant today and crashed on the menu within minutes. Warzone at least lets me get into the game and play for 5 or so minutes before crashing. Have to say, I'm a little stumped. I'd be happy to post more screenshots/info if anyone thinks it would be helpful. Thanks!

How old is your PSU? I believe the older (and probably the newer) builder PSUs were pretty crappy.

 

The fact you got firestrike to run after you removed a custom power curve raises suspicions.

It has to be four to five years old now. I built the PC in late 2015/early 2016. I thought about it being the power supply but I figured the whole machine would crash if that were the case.
