I've been having this issue for several months now and I've searched everywhere to find a solution to this problem but I can't find anything.

PC Specs:

GTX 780Ti (stock), Intel i7 5820k, AS Rock X99 Extreme4, 8Gb RAM, Silicon Power 256Gb SSD, 3TB Seagate HDD, Smart 750W 80Plus bronze Thermaltake PSU, Windows 10 64-bit OS.



First I'd like to say that I've had this PC for 7 years now and the only thing I've upgraded since then was my storage which I did over a year ago. At first I thought it was a simple dust build-up in the GPU fan so I cleaned it and it did not solve the issue. I proceeded to take every part out, clean the entire PC, re-applied the thermal paste on both my CPU and my GPU and this still did not solve the issue, I've tried stress tests (OCCT) and I left it running for 4 hours and it did not crash or say anything wrong with my PC, I also used Furmark and there still was no issue. I'll list the games I play detailing problems if they exist:

Phantasy Star Online 2 (During certain quests it MAY crash, not 100% of the time)

Fortnite (Crashes within an hour of playing)

Yuzu emulator Smash Brothers Ultimate (Crashes within 2-3 hours of playing)

League of Legends (Does not crash)

Brawlhalla (Does not crash)

Among us (Does not crash)

GTA V (Does not crash)

Rocket League (Crashes within 20 minutes)



These are all the games that I've played in recent time and had issues with it crashing, at first I thought it was an issue with games being too demanding and my GPU started to give out but Furmark stressed my GPU more than any of these games ever could, Rocket League is a particularly strange one to me since I don't believe it's more demanding than Fortnite or GTA V. Any suggestions would be great on how I can troubleshoot the issue here, thanks in advance!

Hello

Have you check those temps on the gpu and the voltage of your old psu?

@Bruce
These are my idle temperatures, when the game crashes, my GPU goes to 100%, during Rocket League, it will crash within 3 minutes, first it will freeze, then my screen will go black for a split second then return to the frozen game. I google'd this and I found that it could be a PSU issue and they said to underclock my GPU and try again, when I did this, Rocket League worked fine for an hour (I did not test beyond this) so therefore I believe it is a PSU issue, I will borrow a PSU and test to confirm this.

The voltage is way off and the temps are high on your gpu.. Either the gpu is failing and or the psu 12 volt side to the gpu is failing..

These are the new temperatures as I underclock my GPU a bit. I really hope it's not a failing GPU and rather it's the PSU. If the case is that the 12 volt side to the GPU is failing, can I just get a new 12V connector and plug it into a different 12V of the PSU? I'm not sure if there's more than one, just asking.

Also, I'm not sure if this is normal, but looking at HWMonitor, I noticed if I do any action, my GPU usage spikes up to about 20%-50% and I mean literally anything, if I minimize Chrome or switch tabs, it'll spike, this doesn't seem normal to me, I'm not sure.

Also these are the values I get when gaming. This is also my GPU still underclocked.
