Hi Guys,

I've had my pc for a year and still the same issue remains. While gaming the pc freezes, and i can't do anything anymore, the screen stays locked and i have to do a hard reboot.
My temps are fine, both for gpu and cpu never exceeding 70 degrees.
It can happen after 5 mins or 2-3 hours, overwatch just crashed on me after working fine for 3 hours. Always the same issue. At first i had sli, thought that was the problem, so removed the second card, but it still remains.

Also, at random points, my screen turns black for a split second and then continues like nothing happened. Maybe this has something to do with the freezing as well. Please, i'm at my wits end here...

This is my setup

Maybe the problem is in the game you're playing !

The power supply wattage is too high. Check Cooler Master's PSU calculator. I don't think you will exceed 600W. The power supply is undervolting. And please be carefull that the AC cable is plugged in as much as you can.

I know its too high, but does that matter? Its because at first i was running sli cards. Better too much then not enough, it only uses what it needs, right? How do you know its undervolting and what can i do about it?

No. If it is a lot under the PSU's wattage, then it will undervolt it and may result to unexpected things. What happended to you is a happy cause. It could have been worse, like the PSU dieing. You can sell it and buy a 750W one. That will definetly do the job, even with SLI config, but, just to be sure, please check Cooler Master's PSU calculator. The site will recommend 2 power supplies after you inserted the details of your PC and it will tell you the exact watts it will need.

But again, please check if the AC power cable is fully inserted in the PSU. Push it as hard as possible, but be carefull to not break your case :)

Thx for your reply, i will look into this,

BTW it also happened when i had two 980 ti's in sli, so it probably wasnt that much the psu wattage at that time, but nonetheless, definitely worth looking into

 

What i also noticed, my cpu is defaulting at 1.360 volt, but shouldnt that be 1.2 volt for this cpu? Isn't that too high?

Yes, it should be 1.2V. But still, even with 2 GTX 980 Tis, you use ~500W. Please use that Cooler Master PSU calculator. Sirtec 750W should be enough.
