Hey guys, I've recently built myself a new computer, I'll list the specs bellow.
8GB DDR4 Crucial RAM @ 2400 MHz
MSI X470 Gaming Plus Mobo
GTX 1060 6gb
AeroCool Integrator 700Watt PSU
Windows 10 Home 64 Bit
1TB Seagate HDD
After building and installing Windows I've been having all sorts of issues with using the system when underload and just generally using the system within Windows, this includes doing things from just sitting on the desktop to running a benchmark and crashing just as the benchmark launches or randomly as it is running. I've been attempting to sort out the situation for the last few hours and have gone over the following steps
Removed and reinstalled Display Drivers using DDU
Updated Windows and installed Chipset and Audio Drivers
Changed RAM slots
Moved GPU across two different PCI-E Slots
I've also seen something quite strange when I actually do get into benchmarking, I have run both Furmark (As a stress test) and Heaven for a little while and I'm getting way lower FPS than what I believe this PC should be pulling, I was getting a max of around 16 in Furmark at a low res and I'm getting around a max of 24 in Heaven at a low res which clearly isn't right for a 1060.
The Freezes are random and can happen with or without load on the system, the freezes can also range from the display just soft-locking (Can still hear audio in the background) or the full computer shutting down and rebooting with a black screen, I've even had a weird instance a few times where the system would go through the Windows boot-up process just fine and just go to a black screen after login.
My original idea was this would possibly be a PSU issue but I've currently not got a spare power supply on hand to test it with, but then I saw the lower FPS and determined that I might have a failing video card on my hands here. I'm not overly sure so I've decided to consult here to see if I can get any advice or help on what might be wrong here.
Anyways, thanks in advance for any help.
