I have an issue with my new Gigabyte RX5700XT 8GB video card. This video card is the only thing that is new in my system the rest is still the same when I used this system with 2 video cards, ASUS GTX160 6GB DUAL and a RADEON PRO WX7100.
MOBO : MSI Z370 GAMING M5 - CPU : i7-8700K (overclocked to 5Ghz) - RAM : 32GB (4x8) DDR4 2400Mhz (overclocked to 2800Mhz) - PSU : LC Power 1200W Platinum - CPU Cooler : Noctua D-15 - Boot SSD : 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD - DATA SSD : 500GB Samsung EVO - DATA SSD : 256GB SSD - DATA HD : 1TB HD 7200RPM - DATA HD : 500GB HD 7200RPM.
Several times when I use my PC, with games or some other applications the Radeon driver comes with a message that Watt-man has set all settings to default because of an issue with my system??? I did not change anything within the Radeon Driver that could bet set back to default. Video playback sometimes hangs and the system freezes for 10 seconds and then it runs again. When I watch temps and CPU clocks etc everything looks okay. Sometimes I get a blue screen. Nothing has changed in my system besides this new video card, with two video cards mentioned above I never had this issue, my system was okay and I never had an issue like this.
When I set the CPU and RAM clocks to stock the issue is still there.
The 5700XT is not overclocked.
What can I do to investigate this issue more? What tools can I use to generate the necessary information to investigate this more or what information do you need to help me. I suspect the video card but maybe you have other ideas what is wrong.
The issue seems to get worse and my PC gets stuck and freezes up more often even with any application I start. Even when I switch from Youtube to my Desktop suddenly my system hangs it self up.
Even more weird, a loud noice can be heard through my speakers. very loud distrorted sound.
This stops as soon as the PC unfreezes again.
When I check eventviewer I see nothing strange and/or errors. The only thing that comes up is Wattman saying, Wattman reset everything to default because of an issue with your system. This drives me nuts.
What I’m going to do now is install Windows 10 again from scratch.
Jeeeez, when I’m typing this update, again pc freezes, strange distrorted loud sound through my speakers and after 5 to 10 seconds the pc is okay again.
Many thanks in advance.
