Hello!
So, whenever I play a game, after a while, the game freezes and the screen goes "No Signal". After that 2 things can happen, the screen shows up everything as nothing happened (though the game crashes), or it stays in No Signal and I have to restart the pc.

Here is the thing. even though I play low specs games because I dont want to deal with this, some of those games still make the thing happen (risk and league of legends, for example), though it happening in high spec games it's kind of a given.

My specs are:
Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2H
i5 7600K
RX 580 Sapphire Nitro+
Corsair VS550
1x8GB DDR4 2133mhz

What are your CPU temps?

Also adding another stick of the same RAM will put you in Dual Channel configuration and give you a slight boost in performance.

I'm far from beeing an expert in hardware so I couldn't tell you my cpu temps, sorry xD
Any aplication recomendations to see the cpu temps and stress test it?

Yes, everything besides the power suply and the motherboard is second hand
There are many rx580s and rx570s out there being sold second hand, they are normally used for mining. Try to open it up, clean it and apply new thermal paste. Also please download gpuz and screenshot the bios number

The bios seems fine, try opening the gpu. It's quite easy and there are guides on youtube on how to do it. You can get some thermal paste like thermal grizzly kryonaut or artic MX-4. You should also get arctic clean to clean up the old thermal paste

Update: I couldn't open it up

The previous owner must have opened it before and left a screw with it's head completely obliterated, so the screwdriver does nothing to it and thus I can't open the shroud

Still I made a test and the gpu never went higher than 70C. Could it be a problem with the drivers or any other component in the pc?

It did it again while playing The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth and having a youtube video in the background. I had to restart the pc, but before that and while the screen showed "No Signal" I could hear the youtube video playing

Bit of a late update but, i've been playing world of warcraft lately and it seems to trigger this effect pretty frecuently.
The scree randomly prompts "No Signal" and when it comes back wow freezes for a moment and then resumes playing, but the battle.net launcher crashes.
I've also checked temps and they max at 75C for the gpu and 64C for the cpu

Sounds like classic driver crash. First thing to try is a different driver version. If that doesn't help, then I usually get those when a custom voltage profile isn't 100% stable. The black screen is the driver crashing and re-applying the Auto settings.

I installed the latest, and with the default config I still get this happening.
I'm going to try to underclock it through adrenalin

(Though the default config was higher than the specifications of the gpu in the official amd webpage)
