What model is that Cooler Master psu? Usually not a psu that is qualified to run this kind of hardware when those parts are pushed to the limit. Seeing that less demanding stuff doesn't give problems is the psu for me first suspect.

It’s a cooler master 500w 80 plus bronze psu that’s only on the hp omen they don’t sell them retail. Do you have a psu you’d recommend for this setup

Yeah I've tried a new cable and replaced the drivers with the newest ones but it didn't work and I don't think its an overheating issue because the temps are normal when the black screen occurs so maybe its just a GPU going bad I've had it for a 1.5 years

So it ended up being the GPU that was busted when I took it to a repair shop to test it because my buddies wouldn't let me test their GPU, they replaced the GPU with another and it worked good so I bought a new GPU and now it runs perfect. To be honest I thought it was the GPU from the beginning but I was hoping it was something cheaper.
