Issue with performance and GPU turning off

  Thyler Dow 19:21 17 Jun 2018

Hello there,

I have a problem in terms of my PC.

It all begins when my GPU starts to act strange. During normal work (couldn't find the way to simulate it) the GPU just turned off (black screen), the fans run at 100%, however rest of the system worked fine (music, I/O operations, etc).

It happens randomly. Sometimes when I use browser, sometimes when I play, sometimes when I develop.

It happened few times so I'm a bit worry.

I've tried to do some tests using OCCT however the results do not tell me, what is really wrong.

When I run:

  • CPU: OCCT, CPU: Linpack, GPU: 3D - everything runs nice and smooth,
  • POWER SUPPLY - it runs for like 10-15sec, then it freeze for few seconds and continue over and over. When it freeze, you can't do nothing except mouse move. In the following link you can see the results of mine 20min test of Power supply: click here PC specs:

  • Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4, 2x8GB, 3200MHz, CL16

  • AMD Ryzen 7 1700
  • Palit GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GameRock Premium 11GB GDDR5X
  • XFX Black Edition XTR 650W

I have no idea what other tests should I perform in order to get know, what's is wrong and which part should be send for RMA.

Can someone help me with that? It makes me doing my work more difficult then it should be.

Best wishes, Thyler
