    It's most definitely the GPU then; RMA that sucker.

    What Tucker said.  You got a really poor quality chip unfortunately

    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. Cheers for the suggestions everyone.

    Try doing at least half an hour. I know you had issues much more quickly in game, but different applications can stress in very different ways.


    If you still don't have issue, I'd recommend trying one more thing before entirely ruling out the GPU: Try underclocking the core and memory by at least 100MHz, and test in game where you were having issues before.


    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.

    Try grabbing FurMark and running a stress test, to rule out most everything else.



    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).

  4. 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!

  5. Is it bad that I got bored of the game after a week? I only really played the online portion of the game. I'll eventually play the story... I guess.

    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? 

  6. Just made a 13 mile endurance race around Los Santos. It's pretty straight forward, but I wanted a path I could test my cars on, this should be interesting. Obviously people will bring their customized Adders and Zentornos so whatever...blah

    Max Players: 8

    Accepted Cars: Super, Sedan, Sports, Muscle, and Coupes. Dunno if custom cars are accepted but I'm almost positive I allowed it. Either that or it never gave me the option to poke that.

    Distance: 13.05 Miles

    Noon, Clear weather (ideal conditions)


    I was thinking of doing something similar myself, I'm surprised R* didn't implement their own "grand tour" kind of race but I guess they thought your standard GTA V player wouldn't go for that.


    I haven't actually had a look at the creator yet, is there a lower limit to the amount of checkpoints you can have in a race? I was thinking of making a race that starts at the airport and finishes to the east of Paleto Bay, with the only checkpoint being the finish line. I think it'd be kinda cool to let players pick their own route to the finish.

  7. Now, usually when I'm eating doritos and dip, once I run out of dip I throw the rest of the doritos away.


    But finally I have become aware of the foolishness of my actions, and from this point on, I will save the rest of the doritos for a later date. This was perhaps the most important lesson I've learnt in my life so far.

  8. Tame Impala. M'nygugguh. Have you heard Melody's Echo Chamber? It's a slightly more dream poppy, drone-y recording done by Kevin Parker's girlfriend. 


    I haven't, I'll give it a listen later though

  9. Not sure this is explicitly "summer music", but it's the music me and my friends tend to listen to at festivals and stuff, but I always associate it with summer.


    Anyway yeah Tame Impala are my main summer band... But I listen to them in winter too. BUT THEY REMIND ME OF SUMMER I THINK THAT'S THE POINT I'M TRYING TO MAKE.
