I started having problems with my MSI RX580x recently symptoms are that it will instantly restart pc if I try and start a higher graphics game or run the heaven benchmark. I swapped it out for a GTX 1060 i had laying around and the problem went away which leads me to beleive its not a PSU , motherboard or ram issue. After reinstalling the RX card I used DDU to remove then reinstalled the driver with same results. The Card has no issues on browsing the web or playing HD videos , I even started a Betterhash miner to see if it would crash which it did not. I have never done any mining with the card in the past . If anyone had a similar experience or could shed some light on helping me further diagnose it would be greatly appreciated

Opon further inspection it seems that the PSU is the culprit. The fan seems to have stopped working and it was overheating . Thanks for replying
