Ive been looking online at similar issues and they seem to point towards hardware instability.
Have you overclocked your GPU?
Or do you have MSI afterburner or evga percision installed that you don't use?
Just an update from before, I started looking online for solutions and started investigating around permissions in my registry to see if anything was blocking the GPU. I screwed up royally and borked the PC (computer was so messed backups were deleted/restricted). As a result i've now got a fresh install for windows, from the ground up.
Tomorrow i will reinstall apex again, test for crashes and whatnot. That will probably be able to pinpoint whether this is a hardware issue just as you said.
Thanks for the help again
Ahh, yeah registry editing is mostly to edit whats default in windows it won't fix a problem when the registry intends to work by default.
BTW the sfc /scannow stuff we did earlier would have resolved that if there was a problem with the registry.
There are some tests we can do for the GPU if there is still an issue.
There is two solutions to try, one being a tempoarly fix that will allow you to use the GPU.
Second being to RMA the card as it fails to perform as expected.
and once again if it does crash like before, could you post the exact details of the hardware you brought?
The whole PC.
Oh yeah dont forget to setup your system since its a reinstall:
We are near the end of finding a solution, don't worry XD
here's my specs:
motherboard: ROG STRIX X399-E GAMING
CPU: Ryzen Threadripper 1920x
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2080
Ram: 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 RAM
PSU: Thermatake 750W
SSD: ALLIED 240gb
With your GPU is that a founders card?
And your ram could you tell me the exact brand and model?
(you can show my product pages if its easier for you)
Okay download and install this stress test: https://benchmark.unigine.com/heaven?lang=en
Create a custom profile and max out the settings with 4K resolution.
Run the test for 30mins and observe the test for the first 5 mins for any faults.
At the end of the 30 mins let me know the temperature.
Ill start running that test now.
To answer your question, no i don't have a Founder's edition card.
Also the brand of my ram is called TeamGroup, two 8gb DDr4 sticks.
Model is: Model TED48G2400C16BK
Coming up to the end of the test now, no faults that I can see. Testing on Ultra settings with Extreme tessellation, doesn't drop below 100 fps anyway throughout the little sequence it goes through. Coming up to 30 mins now and the highest I've seen the temperature go is 70C. It seems to flicker around the high 60's, hits 70C then goes down again. Never goes beyond 70.
