Hello! As of the past week I've been running to a serious amount of crashing issues on my PC. My specs are:
  • i7 4790k @ 4.2GHz
  • ASUS Strix GTX 1080
  • 16GB DDR3 1333MHz
  • MSI Z97 Gaming 5
  • 256GB Samsung EVO SSD
  • 1TB WD Blue
  • Corsair Builder 750W Bronze Certified
I understand that some of these parts are a bit old, but I see no reason why the parts alone should contribute to my crashing issue. Over the weekend, I noticed crashing on Civ 5, Valorant, and COD Warzone, all games that I have been able to run perfectly fine for the past couple months/years. I used HWMonitor to watch my temps while testing Warzone and my GPU and CPU never rose above 80 and 70 degrees, respectively. Just today, Valorant started giving me a driver out of date error upon crashes. At least according to GeForce Experience, my drivers are up to date. There isn't any visible artifacting right before any of my crashes occur. The game freezes and I land back on the desktop.

Over the past two days, I've been running 3D Mark Firestrike, Unique Heaven, and Furmark stress test to see if there were any stability issues with my card. Firestrike originally crashed the first couple tries but after removing my custom power plan it ran fine. Both Unique Heaven and Furmark did not crash. I attempted launching into Valorant today and crashed on the menu within minutes. Warzone at least lets me get into the game and play for 5 or so minutes before crashing. Have to say, I'm a little stumped. I'd be happy to post more screenshots/info if anyone thinks it would be helpful. Thanks!

Uninstall the video drivers, run the DDU program to wipe then, install the drivers again.

Test the card in another system, test another card in yours. Most likely two things are the card or power supply.
That appears to have worked for the most part! My COD warzone still crashes without any errors but everything else appears to be working fine.
