Thinking of returning 5600 XT.

Not a bad idea to also test other stuff like removing most of the ram of the machine or devices that are known to have issues (i.e. cheap pcie usb 3 cards or the like). Over the years i have been plagued by issues i misdiagnosed. Like thinking something was wrong with the motherboard cmos when the issue was a faulty sata cable. Or my video would sometimes crash and i thought the problem was vram related when a bad memory controller on the cpu was to blame.

 

Not saying you should make a flowchart of all PC issues known to man. Just be a little more broad in your initial diagnosis.

This confirms Radeon is the culprit. New bugs:

Finally got the BSoD.

Was playing CS, another guy got disconnected. "Lol he got disconnected" immediately after I typed that, the game crashed. Tried to launch it again and got BSoD. I think a certain holy man is watching me...

 

One thing I'm concerned about is when I RMA this card, I'm gonna have to connect HDMI from my motherboard. For some reason, there's no signal when I plug the HDMI cable into my motherboard's port. Do I have to remove the GPU for it to work...?

Reading the whole thread, there are two possibilities.

 

A defective component - be it card, power supply or board. Usually (in 90% of cases I've seen) restarts like that are due to a faulty power supply triggering protections or a faulty component triggering a power supply protection. You could have gotten a lemon card that goes outside of ATX spec and triggers a protection.

 

Some kind of software mess. Do you have the latest BIOS, chipset drivers, all other drivers from each OEM website and is the OS updated? Are broken things such as game mode and Xbox game bar disabled? Do you have any broken software such as specct installed?

It's most likely not a damaged component reading over AMD's driver release notes some black screen/driver hang issues are back in OP's scenario.   If I were @Whateverchan I'd either get a different card, or find a more stable driver version where this isn't happening in their case.   For me it happened with my VII when I'd make game assests in blender on one screen while coding on another.   Or, if I were to enable flash in a browser because a site wouldn't function without it.  Basically, what happens is the screen/s blank out to pitch black as the driver has stopped responding, and after the preset TDR integer value, in seconds, the system reboots.   I think someone above mentioned 2 more stable versions for gaming causing it.   I'm impressed AMD broke it again for that scenario after they just fixed it.  xD  Also, fun fact AMD's cleanup tool is better at cleaning up their drivers than DDU.  

 

https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-601#faq-3 AMD Cleanup Utility, from what I have seen, cleans up AMD's driver better than DDU.

@Whateverchan TDR = Timeout detection and recovery.   If the GPU driver doesn't respond within a set amount of seconds that is preset in the registry, aka the integer value in (), then the system crashes.   So, download AMD's cleanup tool and try to do a driver rollback.   MS made changing the TDR value worthless a few updates ago.   But, if you wanna verify a fault in the card, driver or not, download OCCT and do the donut of doom test with error checking.

Your card is defective. Am 99% sure.

 

Also, what CPU do you have? F series and Ryzen series don't have iGPUs

I have 3600. 

So now we conclude it's the card and not the RAM or PSU? It's going back, regardless.

It could still be RAM or power supply, don't get me wrong, but the bsod makes me think it's a defective GPU or VRAM.

 

But I'd the power supply is going outside ATX spec or is being unstable in rapid succession, this could be the result. Same for unstable memory. Only way to test is to RMA the card and try the new one.

Already did. Thank god the Amazon customer support was easy. Might not have been the case if it was BH or Newegg. Now I'm looking at 1660 Super/TI or EVGA 2060.

I'm not speaking for everyone here but Amazon has a pretty good return policy.

It's very strange that I'm reading about so many problems with the Radeon GPU's (mainly the 5700xt's) I have a 5700 and my friend has a 5700xt and we haven't experienced ANY of these issues...I even have mine overclocked and everything works without a hitch.

 

I wonder if it has to do with the manufacturer BIOS?

Amazons policy is fortunately awesome

 

 

RMA, get an Nvidia :)

It's pretty luck-based, from what I can see. I heard about AMD cards having some sort of drivers issue, but didn't know how bad it was. I took a gamble and I lost. Even someone else who thought about switching to 5700 didn't know how widespread it is until I asked him to help troubleshoot. Think of it like this: 2 out of 5 people who eat this meal will die. It's cheap and delicious, though. Will you take the risk?

I just hope it's not going to jeopardize my account after making 2-3 returns in a few weeks. Long story short, this wasn't something I expected to have to return.

 

I also just found out that the 3600 doesn't have integrated GPU, so I won't be able to use my PC without a GPU. Goddamn it... So no waiting for sales for me. T_T Probably gonna get a 1660 Super MSI X from Bestbuy, stick with 1080p for a few more years, and hope 4k is more affordable eventually. *Sigh* I had high hope for this build, beating PS5 and all that...
