So I’m able to Not have issues if I don’t actually put the card to work... but if I game or anything(not overclocked default Radeon wattman settings) it lasts about 1 minute, gpu fan ramps up to 100% and computer restarts.. when it restarts gpu is still at 100% fans ... everything I think is compatible I have an ms 7641 ver 3.0 mobo, Ethernet connected internet, 650 watt psu (although it’s Prob close to 10 years old) I have 2 4gb sticks of ram, I set my virtually memory to 4000 min 8000 max, I have 1 mini msi rx580 and am i5 core processor
