Hi everyone,

So lately, when I use my PC, the screen usually has artifact (small squares of static screen). When I play a movie, sometimes in the middle of the movie, my PC would just freeze, the mouse freezes, the screen stays at that frames and I had to hard reboot. Another thing that happens is when I play videos or movies, the screen would just go black for an instance then back to normal. This mostly only happens when I use Chrome or play movie. Never happens when I play games (valorant). But the artifacts and the crashing are quite persistant.

This happened after I changed my CPU and mobo. It didnt happened before so i dont know if it's because of the failing GPU or my new CPU and mobo just requires more power and my PSU can't offer enough power.

Note that I use XMP for my rams and set my CPU to highest performance.

My specs:
CPU: Intel core i3-10100
GPU: Colorful GTX 1050 Ti NE 4G (4GB GDDR5, 128-bit, DVI+HDMI+DP)
Mobo: H510M-A PRO
Ram: 2x8gb Colorful Ram, bus 2666
Storage: PNY CS900 120gb SSD
256gb M2 SSD that I take from my broken laptop
PSU: EVGA 400 N1, 400W

Old specs (that my GPU was fine on)
CPU: Intel core i5-6500
GPU: Colorful GTX 1050 Ti NE 4G (4GB GDDR5, 128-bit, DVI+HDMI+DP)
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-H110M-D3H R2 TPM (rev. 1.0)
Ram: 2x8gb Colorful Ram, bus 2666
Storage: PNY CS900 120gb SSD
PSU: EVGA 400 N1, 400W
