I think it can be most demanding GAME. I'm more strategy player (Hearts of Iron IV, XCOM2, Company of Heroes II etc.) and strategies usualy aren't so demanding. Other then that, I run ArchiCAD 22, Lumion 9 and few other simmilar apps, that can draw a lot of CPU/GPU/RAM resources (especially when rendering), but more constantly then a game, I guess.
Ok... I think I'll need to borrow some stronger PSU to prove that its what cause the error, and if so, buy a new one for myself...
Thank you a lot for walking me trough! I needed another pair of eyes...
Will let you know here once finished with testing that PSU.
Hi, no BSOD code. No resource-heavy apps runs with sandstorm (except Vivaldi Brovser with about 50 tabs, but it still doesent go over RAM capacity). Sandstorm is unfortunately only app(or game) that causing death. MB error is possible, tho I dont know how to validate it.
Powersupply is big question. Theoretically, its a bit understrength (400W with some better effectivity rating, I thing its platinum or sth like that)...with 6c12t Ryzen and Rx480 on it... But measured max constumption of whole system never even spiked over 260W during long-term load - It ussualy keeps at 160-220W.
I've run RAM test recently, as well as SSD check, no error has been found.
Display drivers have been updated twice in last... 6 months? during which this error troubles me. Ill try to do clean instal of these.
Ad temperatures: no, i do not monitor temps on daily basis, tho i have set alarms at BIOS manually and i have been monitoring temperatures during short-term and long-term heavy loads last summer, which validated cooling system. That said, I do clean dust of it on regular basis.
I have checked Windows Event Viewer, there is lots of entries, but non mentioning power/surge.
In the house I live, there are rather old electical wires, one phase seemd to drop randomly every few weeks for few miliseconds... tho this should not affect PC as it is UPS-backed up now.
@Arc So... Ive checked files via steam - no error. Ive reinstalled EasyAntiCheat and it has happend again. I dont know enough to be sure its insurgency-releated, even tho one of symptoms (looks like condition) is turing I:S on. It never happens without it.
EDIT: I am not so sure, but I often do alt+tab to another window. Might this affect this?
Any idea what to check/what to do next?
First, Im not sure this is the right section of the forum. If so, please, point me out to the correct section.
Occasionally, I experience total PC shutdown (exactly like when you hold power-button for few sec) few seconds after lunching I:S. PC can run for hours or be freshly started, there can be lots other apps running or none.
OS: Win10 Pro (1809, b17763.529)
Drive: Patriot Scorch M2 SSD
CPU: Ryzen 1600 (6c12t, 3,2GHz)

GPU: Radeon Rx480 8GB
Can anyone point me to the location of some kind of crash report so I can attach it here? Thanks...
