  1. Thanks guys, just put the card in my flatmate's PC and was getting the same issues (just to double check), so I'm gonna RMA it. Cheers for the help.
  2. Yep, whenever I underclock I can play for a longer period of time than I can without doing it. It still crashes eventually though.
  3. Cheers for the suggestions everyone. I ran it for just over 30 minutes a couple of days ago and had no issues. Then I tried underclocking in the AMD Settings Wattman (I'm not really sure what I'm doing with stuff like this but I followed an online guide for it) and I tried GTA again. I was able to play for about half an hour which gave me some hope, only for it to crash again.
  4. About 10 mins
  5. Yeah I've tried Furmark already, the temperature got quite high (75-80) but stabilised once it got there. Didn't seem to cause any issues, unfortunately (or fortunately, I guess).
  6. Hello friends. I've been having non-stop issues with my new GPU, a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 480 4GB. Basically, since I put it in my PC, almost every game crashes at some point. Sometimes the game will completely crash, other times it'll briefly freeze and then return to normal (which is still annoying). I know there's some smart folks lurking around here so I was hoping you could help me. In GTA V specifically I can play for maybe 3 or 4 minutes before the game crashing and getting an "application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware" message from windows. In Event Viewer, shortly before the game crashes I tend to get one or more "Display driver amdkmdap stopped responding and has successfully recovered." messages. My specs: OS: Windows 10 GPU: Sapphire Nitro+ RX480 4GB CPU: Intel i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz RAM: 8GB DDR3 Motherboard: ECS H61H2-MV PSU: Corsair CX500W I've checked temperatures and power usage with GPU-Z and everything seems fine, the computer itself doesn't crash just the application. I've tried a clean install of the drivers with DDU, as well as basically every solution I found with a google search, aside from reinstalling Windows 10 as I only really want to do that as a last resort. I'm suspicious of my motherboard as I got this computer pre-built and they seemed to have cheaped out on everything not advertised as a selling point. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you need any more details let me know. Thanks!
  7. Went to bingo for the first time ever on a "Work Outing" yesterday. Won £200. Bingo!
  8. Don't get much time to play games these days, but I've been bashing Halo 5 pretty much since it came out.
  9. That was the whole point of him saying it, Jeremy Corbyn (leader of the opposition) said that he'd never press it no matter what so DC saw his chance to get on up on him. He's really been getting off on calling JC a "threat to national security" lately.
  10. Always reassuring when the leader of your country is willing to kill millions of people. He's getting there with his benefit cuts, anyway.
  11. You can still play the modded/cracked/whatever Halo Online, it didn't actually get taken down.
  12. Sup

  13. Deleting this will feel very good indeed
  14. I feel like the only thing keeping me playing the online mode is the fact that I have 3 friends who play as much as I do, which makes it infinitely more fun. I assume the story is the same as it was in the 360/PS3 versions, right? Nothing new added?
  15. Got 69/100 in my most recent uni assessment. Heh. 69.
