I'm trying to troubleshoot a "screech of death" crashing issue with OpenGL settings requiring a high level of graphics complexity. The situation I have is that I crash somewhat randomly while playing OpenGL games. I have a new system with CPU OCing and stock GPU settings. While playing games with max settings I'm running at near 100% GPU Usage with temps in the 60-80C range.
To investigate the issue I downloaded some benchmarking software (i.e. Prime95, OCCT and Furmark). Prime95 works fine with no errors leading me to believe the issue is not with the CPU. Running the OCCT Power supply test with 1920x1080 fullscreen using all logical cores crashes my system almost immediately. Furmark benchmark 1920x1080 crashes immediately when ran as well. I'm wondering if I'm having power consumption issues, gpu problems or something else.
Can anyone point me in the right direction here?
