OC Help needed... what is going on?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys first thank you for the add and taking the time to read this. I hope I can find some help.

Well I've also ran into another issue while trying to figure out my instability issues which I believe is part of why I cant get a stable non-throttling OC.

I noticed that my screen started to flash/flicker like when you wiggle a cable. Making my screen go brighter (normal screen appearance) then go slightly darker like when a power surge happens. My screen never goes black but just goes back and forth between brighter to darker. Then my games stopped running and started crashing.

When I looked into this problem most people were stating it was a driver issue with the AMD RX series video cards. Upon further investigation I noticed that if I completely removed the Radeon Crim drivers and allowed Windows to install just the video driver my games would work and my screen would stop with the flashing. I then continued to figure things out and reinstalled the Radeon Crim driver and software like Global Wattman. Games began to crash again and screen started doing the flash dance again.

So, I thought let me stop Crossfire (I have dual RX 460 cards installed) and just run 1 card. Boom!!! Games work fine and screen has no flashing. Both cards are good as far as I can tell. Individually they run fine.

So my questions are, is a 750w power supply enough to run a Crossfire setup, plus OC and run 3 different hard drives etc...?

My rig specs:

FX 6300 stable 4.4ghz
8 gb of Crucial Ballistix Tactical 1600mhz ram
1 Samsung Evo SSD
1 WD Blue 1TB HDD
1 WD Green 500GB HDD
2 Sapphire RX 460 4gb Nitro video cards
PSU: Thermaltake Smart Series 750w 80+ Bronze

Also could all of this be the cause of my OC throttling? Not enough juice ⚡️, causing heating issues?

Hope someone can help me out.

Put your CPU and video cards back to stock clocks and see if you still have that problem. Then OC the CPU and see if you still have that problem. Then OC the cards and see if...
