so i build my first pc few days ago and first thing i do is to test the system for stability , i tested my system and cpu,ram and a ssd is running perfectly normal whereas my hard drive shows bad sectors which i now have given for RMA and the other part is gpu which when i test with heaven, furmark the screen stucks, sometimes gives black screens and when i run any game it gives dxgi error device hung , i don;'t know much about pc's but i guess its the psu , i don't know but if anyone understands it i appreciate any help
specs:
asrock b350 pro 4
corsair vengeance 3000mhz ram
ryzen 3 1200
zotax gtx 1050ti
wd green ssd
wd blue 1tb
antec 550 neo eco
 


A bad psu can easily cause the issue you are describing. The neo eco line is not a great lineup as far as what I can find.

i know its not so great psu but i do not clearly say that psu is faulty because everything sometimes works totally fine

 


Then you'll just end up with a dead system sooner than later. Don't use the pc until you can get a better psu.

could you please just not jump to the conclusion , can you consider other possibilities like bad gpu or drivers or ryzen

Memtest needs several passes in order to test the RAM. Some errors will not show up until later in the stages of the test.
I usually run memtest overnight and check for errors the next morning. If the test comes back with no errors I will trust the RAM is good and look elsewhere for the error causing component.
