GPU fans at 100%, black screen and system hard lock.


This is a continuation of an older thread with the same issue as described.




I had been having an issue where my system would black screen, the GPU fans would ramp up to 100% and the system would be unresponsive until I flipped the switch on the back of the PSU to turn it off. I tried the fix provided in the link above which was a thermal paste swap on the GPU and it seemed to work. No crashes since September. Yesterday, I picked up two new SSDs and installed them in my system. Games for a few hours in GTA V and boom. It did the same thing. Upon reboot, within 5 minutes it did it again with nothing running.


My main theory now is that it's a power supply issue, given that it crashed after the new drives were installed, but I'm looking for outside help because I have no concrete evidence. CPU never exceeds 60 C, GPU never exceeds 65 C.



CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 overclocked at 3.7GHz stable.

GPU: MSI GTX 1060 6gb Gaming X, +150mhz on the core clock and +200mhz on the memory clock, seemingly stable.

Memory: 16gb Corsair LPX 2400mhz

MB: Asus Strix B350F Gaming

PSU: Corsair CX550M

your power supply should power your setup with no problem. but if you are doing graphics card OC, may consider pull voltage to max while you are doing such high clock.

but doing so will put a lot of stress on your psu so you might consider pull everthing down to stock and retest everything to make sure.

why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!
