5600XT STILL constantly crashing

Go to solution Solved by cooc1501,

after days with no crashing I can confidently say that this solved the issue. Why? I genuinely have no idea. I was fully utilizing the increased vram clock speed in stress tests, but in games it would crash. Maybe there's some other weird thing in the most updated VBIOS for my card that was causing the crash

Either way, Going from the L12 to the L10 VBIOS Asrock 5600xt Phantom Gaming solved the crashing.

I have been dealing with constant graphics driver crashes in game for a long time now with my 5600xt. I feel like I've tried everything: different RAM wont help, XMP doesn't change anything, changing TDR delay doesn't change anything, Crashes happen over many versions of the graphics drivers with and without Adrenaline installed, My Mobo BIOS and GPU VBIOS are both up to date, downclocking and downvolting the card wont help, and It still happens even in completely fresh installs of windows.

I've run both of the GPU tests on OCCT, as well as CPU and PSU tests, and the machine performs perfectly for the whole hour without any crashing or weird fluctuation in voltage or anything. It also performs fine in any other stress tests I throw at it. As soon as I play games with it though, the game will crash in between a few minutes and a few hours.

Error messages have varied over time. I used to get Radeon Graphics driver crash detected messages, BSODs, and 1 or 2 catastrophic screen meltdowns, all of which would be fixed by restarting the computer. However, after my fresh installs of windows recently I've just been getting crash messages from the games I'm playing at the time. Looking at crash logs they all seem to be card related though. Crashes occur most often in games like Farcry 5 through 6 and Cyberpunk, but still do happen in games like Valorant and Deep Rock Galactic. 

Crashes stop happening when I switch in my old GTX 960

I really have no idea what the problem might be, If it can run fine on stress tests is it a software thing? But if its a software thing then how come a fresh install of windows and any drivers wont fix it?

Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

There are rare cases which this particular CPU on this particular board doesnt work with this specific card. Change out one of the variable (even if the model is the same) then solves the problem. Rare, but not unheard of.

Ill see if I can test the card on one of my buddies computers.

Is the problem pretty much narrowed down to some weird little incompatibility? I don't have a lot of experience diagnosing this stuff outside of this problem and it's just very confusing. But if it stress tests well than there shouldn't be some fatal flaw in the card hardware right?

I dont see how it could be something else. That said a lot of variables cant be seen across a forum post.

Not exactly, stress tests are meant to act like games but at the end of the day are not the real thing.

Posting this tentatively, but as a last ditch effort I actually downgraded by VBIOS and it seems to be more stable. Ill try to update this in a week if it continues to work, just in case anyone with a similar problem sees this. 

My theory is that some of the 5600XT's that got shipped before AMD boosted the memory clock speed (which mine could have been) weren't tested properly for 14GBPS and may not be up to the task. None of the downclocking I did affected the memory speed, where as rolling back the bios took it back to the memory speed it started with (12 gbps i think?) 

Why stress testing didn't cause this crash? I don't know. But I'm not complaining because I got to grind some farcry last night :)
