3.0 out of 5 starsDisable "advanced stream" detect to save you DAYS of troubleshooting. March 2, 2019Verified Purchase I thought my board was faulty but nope, turns out the KILLER CONTROL CENTER caused my pc to freeze for 3 seconds while playing video games, watching twitch, and youtube and then it would resume, sometimes the game would crash or chrome would crash. It would happen randomly. Disabling "Advanced Stream Detect" in the "killer control center" fixed the issue. I even bought a new psu because I thought my psu was bad because of this bug. I tested my ram for hours but no errors, switch pci-e slots..you name it, I tried. I hope new comers to PC read this if they are experiencing issues. I 46 people found this helpful
AHowesSo you mentioned you've read posts on this and it points to power supply. You dont mention your psu?A PSU wears out over time. Caps get weak. You can even buy a new psu that's been stored on the shelf for years before you buy it and it can already be aged and performe under specs.Have you grabbed a new psu to test yet?Seems like your psu dont want to put out enough wattage anymore for both cards under load.Grab a new 1200watt psu.
mikeaudi21So I am having Benchmark problems running my RTX 2080 TI Black cards in SLI. It would seem anytime my cards are under stress they crash (Using Fire Strike and Heaven) the cards get to about 63 to 70 degrees and crash the program. I have went through every trouble shooting option I could find in the internet. It's not PSU, RAM, SLI Link, Software, Windows, Bios, Driver, etc... The PC is extremely cool. Its a nice liquid cooled PC. THE PC IS NOT OVERCLOCKED, it is running stock settings. Running one GPU I have no issues with any benchmarks. But in SLI it freezes the benchmark every time, about the same temp in the same place. I'm using two EK water blocks. Not the EVGA water blocks. I noticed the EVGA water blocks plug into the fan connector on the GPU. The water blocks from EK do not plug into the fan port on the GPU. Basically I'm wondering if the freezing is because the GPUs are trying to run a fan and because none are connected that there is a safety function in the card that shuts it down. Is this possible? Is not having a fan plugged into the port of the EK water block causing the crashes in benchmark programs stressing the GPU?
