Rx 580 crashing in 3d mode


Hello Everyone, Im having a Slightly unique problem with my Rx580. MSI RX 580 8GB Armor to be exact.

I was slicing a model for 3d printing in Chitubox and my whole PC crashes to a brown screen, Chitubox is hardly demanding but lightly 3d.

It took a few power cycles to get my PC to turn back on when it did ,crashed in the same way upon loading a slightly 3d background from wallpaper engine. Next round I killed wallpaper engine and got her back on Tried slicing again to the same result. Got her running again and...

It sat running overnight and was fine all night. In the morning I went to play Dusk Diver and same crash. Getting harder to restart the PC each time.

Im a system builder and i dont normally get stumped. I reseated the card, i reseated my ram, i tried all the tricks.

I went and reset Adrenaline and drivers, fresh install and turned off and 3d programs tried to the same result of failure.

  Fortunately I'm in the mist of another build for a friend so I pulled it card, another RX580 a Gigabyte Gaming Windforce 8gb. I sliced, played Dusk Diver,I danced and sang, everything worked as expected without any hitches. SO problem sovled right?

Well sure but i would like to know if there is anything to fix on my old rx 580 ive only have it about 2 years and it has played hundreds of hours of gaming like Monster Hunter and other highly intense games.

It seems so weird it would die while running a lightweight program like Chitubox.

What happened is there anything to look for? Anything to fix or sell it for parts and buy a another card instead?

I know there are better cards on the market but this one was working just fine.
