Question Hugely odd problem on new(ish) Ryzen/Geforce build -


Sep 13, 2020
Hey peeps,

After a new build with a fresh install of Win10, the pc would boot to desktop and suffer extremely slow performance in general desktop use and gaming would be completely out of the question.
After a reboot, the pc performs normally and gaming is as expected until any graphically demanding game randomly crashes.

These problems do not occur at all if the pc has been switched off at the wall or psu for a minute or longer.

I've trawled forums and guides with fresh installs and re-seating of hardware to no success.

Any ideas?
Specs as follows:

MSI Tomahawk b450 Max
Ryzen 5 3600 (stock speed and Wraith Cooler)
GTX 1060 6GB (stock speed)
Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 sticks, stock speed)
Samsung 840 Evo 250 GB
Corsair 650 Watt PSU

P.s. any problems you see with the build itself (bottlenecks etc) feel free to point it out!
P.p.s. This is my first post to any forum anywhere, so apologies if I've made a breach of etiquette.

Cheers for your time!
