So I got this brand new PC assembled at the local shop. See specs below. Every time I try to play something, 5 to 20 min into the gameplay the screen freezes for a few seconds and then PC reboots. Any game I try, any resolution. Just games.  Otherwise everything works flawlessly. I took it back to the shop and they ran every stress test they could come up with and couldn't find any issues. Their last best idea was for me to post on this forum, since these cards seem to be developing reputation for being defective.  All drivers updated. Windows updated. BIOS updated. Debug mode not helping. Unfortunately the whole world seems to be out of stock on any kind of decent video card, so I can't swap it to narrow down the problem. Any way to narrow down and isolate the issue ? Are there any logs anywhere I can see that would help ?    This situation is beyond frustrating.

    Ask the shop what stress tests did they run, and then run them yourself. If they cause issues they are just lying to you.

    Want to save 5 to 10% on your next EVGA purchase? Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    I wonder if they Daisy chained any the 3 PICE connections on the card, I have a 750w PSU and currently can't run MSFS 2020 and I think its a spike the PSU cant hold, I Ordered a RM850X to hopefully resolve this issue, I would ask what they are using to stress test it? and I would Run your own stress tests

    Also, ensure that you remove any overclocks on your CPU and ram and test again, it could also be an unstable overclock.
