Upgraded my CPU to Ryzen 3 2200G, 32G of Patriot DDR4 Ram, and ASRock B450 Pro4 as well as Windows 10.

My "Ultra" 550W PSU, SSD and NVIDIA GTX 660ti remain from what I originally had.

Previously with my older computer I had no issues of crashing what so ever. However, upon this upgrade the problems initially started with "Rendering Device has been lost" while playing Overwatch. Recently, I started playing Mordhau on Steam and there are times when I can play for quite a while with no crashes or today for example, when the game crashed 2 times as soon as I hit the class selection screen in game.


I have flashed the most recent BIOS, updated the GPU drivers to the most recent available and installed HWinfo to check temps while playing.

GPU reached a max of 64c and CPU 44.1 at the time of the crash.

I'm not really sure where to go from here aside from a fresh windows install which Id like to avoid if someone has any information that could help me figure this out.

Ram is (2x8) x2 kit.

PSU is Ultra, Model ULT-H550W

PSU replacement was going to be my first plan of attack, especially because I was going to upgrade GPU in near future.

Just to add, a friend was going to loan me a 620W just to test. Unfortunately, I wont be able to pickup until tomorrow to see if it helps.

You should upgrade it too. What exactly is it?
Do they come from 2X16GB kit? if yes, try use 16GB to see what happens.

Also did you reinstall the win10?
No I did not reinstall Win10, I was hoping that to be my last course of action albeit the simplest.
