and when i try heaven benchmark the beginning keeps black screening and goes back and half way through i get blue screen then i have to restart my whole pc, if you can help it would be appreciated thanks
You NEED a higher wattage PSU for that setup, especially when overclocking. That PSU is fine for efficient hardware, not power hungry once high-end components.
For the meantime, turn down core and mem clocks on GPU. It may be unstable due to that.
