Hello, I have a strange problem. Some games (Namely Manticore: Core and Dune: Spice Wars) crash my computer every time.

I've got Radeon RX 580 GPU and Intel i5-8400 CPU, 12 GB RAM.

The games always crash at the same spot, for Core its when I click launch on launcher, and for Dune it is the loading screen for starting a new game. No crash dumps are written. Display drivers are updated. I ran the windows memory diagnostics tool and it said no issues were found.

No other games seem to crash it.

Its always a full crash of the entire computer, like electricity went out, straight to black. No BSOD or anything. No flicker or slowing down.

brand and model of the psu?
So, I couldn' t find this out. Sorry, I bought this PC readily done since I don't have experience with building them, and I haven't yet found anything that would indicate the model. It doesn't read on the thing, at least not readily visible. But your question prompted me to investigate. I put a power limit to my GPU, and it caused the games to not crash. I'll try to find out those specs too, but I just wanted to thank you, since at least some kind of fix appears to have been found.
