So recently my pc is crashing on almost every game I play, screen becomes gray or black and then buzzing starts.
I downloaded "WhoCrashed" but there is no crash details or something. PC doesn't restarts, it just keeps buzzing until I restart it manually.
I suspect that PSU is the problem but still don't know because processor is acting weird lately (60 C temperature on desktop).

I tried:
HDD error checking - found some errors, but after that nothing changed.
RAM memory diagnostic
Scanning PC with every anti-malware program I could find, no viruses.

Specs:
AMD Athlon x4 840
XFX Radeon RX 560 Single Fan
8 gb of RAM
PSU is Rhino RX 500pa

Forgot to say that AMD has some stupid thing called WattMan and it constantly turns off my GPU fan every time I turn on my PC or restart it.

Better, not bigger. A good 500w psu will have almost 500w at 12vDC.
12v powers the fans, the gpu, the cpu + other stuff.

The cpu = 65w
The gpu = 100w
Fans = 10w
Other stuff on the mobo = 30w+

Thats over 200w need and 150w supply for 12vDC. Something has to give.

Rhino RX 500pa only has 150 watts of power on the +12v line.

Your video card
Minimum Power Supply Requirement400 watt


You need a much better power supply than what you have now.
Thanks! Do you have some suggestion what PSU should I get?
