Hi, I have been recently been having issues with my system, For some reason my Rx 580 does not work with my 16x pcie slot on my mobo but it works with my 8x slot. I get shutdowns trying to go to windows and If I do I get freezes and artifacts, I thought It was a simple broken PCIe slot but I ended up plugging in my gtx 1050ti (non six pin) 16x slot and my system is working fine. People have been also saying that my psu (masterwatt 600) Is a bad unit but its working fine now. I am running out of ideas on what could be wrong with my system.



Specs:
PSU: Cooler Master masterwatt 600
Mobo: msi b250 gaming m3
Gpus: gigabyte rx 580 8gb and gtx 1050ti
CPU: i5 7500
OS: Windows 10 pro 64 bit

Yes the PSU is more of an expensive paperweight. The reason why the GTX1050Ti works in place of the the RX580 is due to the simple reason that the GTX card is lower TDP'd demanding less from the PSU, hence taxing the PSU less.
