System
CPU I 5 6500
GPU RX 580 8gb
RAM 8gb hyperx
PSU 500W CHIEFTEC
I had these problem for like a half a year now my PC keeps randomly blackscreening durring games at first i thought it was overheating but my gpu temps dont go past 60c and cpu also around 60C.
I started looking into it and a lot of people are saying that its the psu can you confirm this.
I can browse google watch videos and everything but when playing graphicly intensive games it crashes to a black screen but my pc is on fans spinning so i have to power it down.
Its random sometimes its 5min sometimes 30 min.
But when i lower clock speeds by 30% i can play just fine.
Also i noticed the psu got louder over this half a year. Cleaned everything still loud. And one moore thing the display sometimes shows white artifacts and i have to restart.
P.S every driver and windows update is up to date.

Now i know for sure i though that psu shoudnt affect the system that much but apparently it does. Thanks!
There's no guarantee, of course, that this is the problem, but it's the most likely source. As this is a very poor PSU, it's a good idea to change it even if you don't have obvious symptoms; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
