MSI Radeon VII black bar, black screen, flicker
I think I just need to Warranty the card. But my MSI VII is completely unstable under light loads. The card rarely if ever crashes during games though. It's at stock clocks and in a new build but basically the drivers keep crashing. Mostly it happens when I'm browsing the web and light loads. The screen will flicker and a 2 inch black bar will appear vertically down my primary 144hz monitor then the screens will both black out but audio will keep playing. I utilize Windows CTRL Shift B to sometimes mitigate the problem...but not always, sometimes it crashes anyway and the computer reboots. I've gone back to my MSI 290x lightning and the problem has completely disappeared. I can't even remember how many drivers I've tried at this point. But essentially every driver since the release of the card...nothing is stable. But back on the 290x Lightning and I have ZERO problems.
CPU: 3900x stock clocks
Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX X570-F with Bios 1005
Memory: G.Skill 16GB dual sticks running at 3200 mhz
Storage: Crucial 1TB M.2 SSD
PSU: EVGA 1000 P2
OS: Fresh Win 10 Pro
Monitors: BenQ 144 hz XL2430T and an old Acer 60hz H243H.
Anyone happen to have a suggestion for what else I could try before I warranty it? I've also tried updating Chipsets as they are released for the 3900x but that doesn't seem to matter. I've also tried ULPS on and off.
