Windows 7: Black screen occurs with furmark/games.

Black screen occurs with furmark/games.

Hi, havent been using my pc for a few months, after the break i just went straight into some games. And here begins my issue: as long as i am playing not-quite heavy gpu stress games like fifa or hearthstone, nothing major happens. But once i start to play some heavier games like the witcher, black screens occurs almost immadiately. Same happens with furmark and occt PSU stress test.
List of what have i done:
got newest drivers (stable and beta)
tested cpu (occt for 2 hours)
memtest passed
changed psu
tested gpu on another pc, nothing happened for like an hour
tried to lower power limit in afterburner, seems like -30 works just fine, at -27 black screen occurs after few mins
Any idea how to get rid of it/what might be responsible? Few pins on cpu socket are sligthly curved (dont know how to spell it in english). Do not own another mobo for testing.

cpu: i5 4690k (stock)
gpu: r9 390
ram: 2x 4gb 2133+2x 4gb 2400
mb: z97-g43
psu: P1-550B-BEFX

thanks for any kind of help!

Try setting your GPU fan speed manually to about 65% and try to play a graphics intensive game. My R9 280 does the same thing if I leave the fan at the "Auto" setting. Radeon cards seem to be notorious for this kind of behavior. The automatic fan setting isn't aggressive enough.



I can easily black screen playing Bioshock:Ultimate if I leave the fan at auto, but I can play anything my card is capable of if I set the fan to 65%.

Black Screen When Running FurMark and Almost All Games
Hey guys. So, my first post here. I got a custom build about 1.5 months ago. It has got a GTX 950. The mistake I made was not testing some games on the damn thing sooner. Approx. 20 days ago, I installed Dying Light and on starting it, it played out the intro, got to the checkpoint screen and...

Many games crashing, no BSOD, Speccy+FurMark attached
Seems this is rather popular topic here. I cannot really remember when it started, but it will be more than 2 months now. Crash happens quite soon after game starts, usually not even like 10 minutes. It doesn't end up with BSOD, but sometimes whole system gets frozen and it's not even reacting to...
