Do PSUs degrade over time ?
The main thing that will wear out in a PSU is capacitors. Usually good prand PSU's using good brand capacitors will unlikely wear out within 5 years. Some cheaper PSU's can have leaky capacitors within a year or two. Running a PSU near to its max output and heat will also shorten the life of it. Its also a good idea to clean out all the dust which will accumulate over time. To do this you need to take out the PSU, open it up (if not under warranty) and used compressed air to blow all the dust out of it

Thanks for clarifying

Yes, they do.
Thank you

Age should not be a concern given this info. But as noted, PSUs can and do degrade over time. That is why a quality PSU should be at the center of any build.

In this scenario, the RX 480 and PSU are the leading culprits for the problem. As described, a classic heat and/or power issue.

Do you have access to another GPU that could be used for testing in your system?
