Basically whenever I'm playing games that are either intense or fps uncapped my screen turns black for a second or two and then goes to normal again. This can happen once every few minutes or every few seconds while playing.

This problem does not exist while browsing etc.

GPU: XFX RX 580 8G
CPU: Ryzen 1600x Fan: be quiet pure rock slim
RAM: crucial 8gb ddr4 2133mhz
PSU: be quiet pure power 10 500W modular
MBO: MSI b350m pro-vdh
Monitor: Viewsonic viewsonic xg2401 144hz
Sys: W10

Tried reinstalling windows, using ddu and trying older drivers. Updated BIOS. Turned GPU and CPU fans to 100%.
MAX GPU temp while gaming is 81c. CPU around 60-71c under heavy load.
(Note: screen turns blackeven when the gpu temp isnt that high)
Any clues? My guess would be temps but they look fine on paper. Maybe the psu getting too hot? Can motherboards overheating cause this?

Thanks in advance.

I'm going to assume you actually have an AMD Ryzen 5 1600x processor and an AMD Radeon RX 580 graphic card - which use a combined total of 280W of power.

I'm not familiar with that brand of power supply, so I don't know if it's a quality 500W unit or not.

Why do you have only 8 GB of RAM in a gaming computer?

It's one of the best known reputable PSU brands. It's good.

8GB is enough for the games I play. I've never reached over 7G so far. The issue also happens when only 5G RAM are used.

I requested your thread be moved from the "Hardware" section to the "Games" section.
You may get a better response there from the gaming experts.
