  1. I used GPU Tweak and pushed the card down to 1300 with a power target of 50%. No changes. Just did a fresh install of Win 10. No changes. Wtf is going on with this card?
  2. Well, I did check using HWiNFO and there's no big temp spike or anything. This is what I'm getting when I start the game and it crashes right away: This is "in game, but crashes right before I can start the benchmark: And this is "crashes at the point where the benchmark gets to the part with the lowest fps": Can anyone see anything in there, that sticks out to them? Because I don't. Temps seem to be normal to me, including the CPU hot spot. At least from what little I have learned about the Vega series cards. Only thing I was wonder
  3. Thanks, will test that! However as said - this card ran absolutely fine for more than two years, without anything touched - and the only thing that changed, was that it went from my friend's PC into mine.
  4. A few additional notes: - the crashes don't always happen right away. Most of the time, they happen pretty fast. But at some rare times, they let me run a bit of the game. Or they just crash right away while starting the game/software. - Contrary to my first believe, it also happens during 3DMark. I must have been lucky at the beginning (see above). - There is NO error message. I just get a quick freeze, bit of a black screen and I'm back at my desktop. - I've tested drivers from 17.7.1 to the newest. It makes absolutely NO difference whatsoever. - I've tried di
  5. Heya, I have a fucked up issue with my Vega 56 and I'm at the end of my wits. Any help would be welcome. My buddy gave me his Vega 56 ( ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-O8G-GAMING) yesterday, because he upgraded to an 3080 and I only had a lowly 970. It ran perfectly fine at his place. Absolutely rock stable, no noise, he did no tweaking, nothing. He literally plugged it in and let it run, never touching ANYTHING. Ran fine for two or three years. With me? Won't stop crashing. I did run DDU from safe mode, letting it get rid off anything it would find, then installing 20.11.2 d
  6. 1 and 3 it is then. Thanks. The PSU is nine years old, true, but it has never seen anything above a 780 and it due to me never having any time at all, it has barely seen any use in those years. I am most likley going to switch it out at some point, before the 3080, but that's nothing I'm doing tonight - or next week - nor am I worried about the age of it. If it didn't have the power, it would be something else.
  7. Hi, thanks for the quick reply. I have more than one PCIe cable, yes. I am confused, because of a diagram in the PSUs manual. See the attached images. It tells me to use one cable, which would require the use of an 6 to 8 adaptor. However, I have no personal issues with using two PCIe cables. It just isn't covered and some threads I found online confused the hell out of me, with contradicting statements. If I do, I assume I should plug the cables in PCIe 1 and 2, as opposed to any other combination. Correct? That's another source of confusion. BUT: As
  8. Hey guys and gals, I have a power cable question. I just set up my new Ryzen 5600 system and a buddy gave me his old Vega 56 to keep me running until I can finally grab a 3080 for a realistic price in a few months. The system is powered by a 750W BeQuiet BQT-P9. The issue I'm having is that I have no idea what cable to use. The Vega 56 needs two 8-Pin connectors. I have two PCIe cables from the PSU, that come with 1x 8-Pin and 1x 6-Pin. I have been reading up on the matter and I am totally confused, because I find contradictory information in the PSU's manual and internet thr
