A few days ago i got a new rx 5700 xt sapphire nitro+ for my gaming pc and when i am not gaming i use a profile in the radeon software to do some mining.
I have overclocked and undervolted a bit but it will sometimes crash.
so i started with 1300 at 750 voltage and 1830 Vram with a custom fan curve. After like 24hours it crashed. So i adjusted to 1300 at 800 voltage, and lowered the Vram to 1810, but it still crashed like 24 hours later.
Adjusted it again and went up to 1300 at 850 voltage same Vram, and crashed again.
Sometimes the driver would just crash (black screen and then on again but windows kept running) Sometimes the entire pc would crash.
I am just not sure what the problem is, it would run fine for like hours at end and then crash. I can’t time it either its totally random.
I’m not sure if it is the undervolting/ overclocking or just the driver ?
When my pc restarts it goes back to mining but then it draws like 100watts more since the profile changed.
Never had problems with crashing when gaming but then i use another profile with boost in frequency and vram but not looking at power then.
This is also my first time overclocking in AMD, i have always had Nvidia, so i have never undervloted like this, i always just used the power setting .
Any idea everyone?
