Games crash without warning, my pc is barely usuable for gaming

Hi guys,

 

for some reason, a lot of games i try to play crash after some random time in-game. Sometimes immediately while loading after the menu, sometimes after an hour of play. Usually i get no warning, no error message, just nothing. It just crashes to desktop or freezes and i have to open task manager. I'm running a gtx 1060 6gb oc, 16gb 3200mhz ram, a ryzen 5 2600 and an asrock b450m pro4. 

 

I've tried a fresh install of windows,

removing drivers and re-installing them,

messing with nvidia control panel,

messing with in-game settings (duh)

used a tool to remove old amd drivers (had an rx470 before)

Took my pc apart and rebuilt it again.

(Not all in this order)

 

The card is not overheating, my power supply is sufficient. I have 0 clue as to what's going on. Can anybody help me?

 

The games i tried and crashed:

Hitman 2016

Gta V
FIFA 19

Wreckfest

RDR2

Crysis (yes, really)

Run MSI afterburner and see what happens immediately before the crash. It'll probably answer your question.

Try testing the GPU with GPUPI 3.3.3,Press Calculate then use the following settings:

32B HWbot GPU

choose your GPU in OpenCL GPU devices

Batch size: 20M

Reduction size: 512

Then press OK to start.

(Press cancel if a message about HPET appears)

As @Aereldor said, let Afterburner run in the background and try to reproduce a crash.

Also you could try and downclock your RAM. Maybe that helps. Some Ryzen chips don't like even 3200MHz, mine included... :(

If it was the RAM the pc would crash entirely, not just the CTDs he's getting.

Is there any chance you bought this used? The 1060 was a popular mining card... Host of issues, including overuse and custom BIOSes.

Thanks for the reply's guys.

 

I see that my ram usage suddenly spikes to almost 100%, does that mean i have to downclock it?

 

And yes i bought it used, the guy told me it wasn't used for mining but you never know.

Nope,It means you have a lot of crap running in the background.

A screenshot from task manager will help.

If you want to know if it's the GPU,just do the GPUPI test like i said:

If it's the GPU then GPUPI will display an error and won't finish the test.

I don't think this is true. I have had plenty of softcrashes when i pushed my ram a little to far.

I did the GPUPI test and got this error:

Quote

Error: Waiting for series term kernel failed: CL_INVALID_COMMAND_QUEUE

When i tried to calculate again i got this:

Quote

 

Error: Could not create context on platform "NVIDIA CUDA OpenCL 1.2" (Error: Unknown OpenCL error code: -9999)
Error: Could not initialise API: OpenCL GPU
Error: Could not initialize APIs!

Could not start calculation due to errors!

 

I also added screenshots of task manager, some things might be in dutch.

Hello????? i have no idea what to do now

Sorry about that,those errors mean that GPU is probably failing.

It's also possible that the OS is corrupt but i doubt it.
