I have just build a new system with the following specs:
Intel i7 8700
Asus Maximum ROG X
16 GB 3200 DDR4
Kraken X52 AIO
650w Seasonic Prime Gold Power Supply
I carried over the 970 GTX from my old system while I wait and see what will happen with the 1070 Ti
In the old system everyone works fine but I am having some issues with the new build and I am hoping that someone with better hardware knowledge than me can help.
During normal usage the PC is fine, quick and generally great. But when gaming, for no apparent reason both monitors go into power saving mode at random intervals and never come back. The PC doesn't crash, or bluescreen as far as I can tell it stays responsive but both monitors loose their feed. When this happens I have tried to plug one of the cables into the internal adapter but still get nothing. The only way to get the display back is to reboot.
I have also tried:
Checking all the temps
Running 3d Mark
Stress test on the CPU
Checking everything is connected
Disabled hibernation and powersaving etc
In all my stress tests it seems to work fine, it's only when I start gaming that I have the problem and it's really annoying. Can anyone help send some light on what might be the cause of the issue as I am stumped. Next start is to start buying new bits one by one and see what fixes it.
For some reason I suspect my GPU and most of the time when the monitors loose their feed and the add remove hardware sound pings the default sound device changes from my sound card to one of my monitors.
Any advice would be great as I am not sure where to go from there.
Thanks in advance.
