Screen turned green while running Heaven benchmark. Too much oc?


Just a while ago, I tried running Heaven because I wanted to see the difference between dx9, OpenGL, and dx11. Halfway through running with OpenGL (dx9 worked fine), the whole screen just turned emerald green. Ctrl + alt + del didn't work and after a few seconds, the screen turned black and the monitor went to power saving mode but the tower still has lights. I was thinking that it could be too much ocing but I already tested my oc months ago and didn't have any problem.

CPU: A4-5300 (stock)
GPU: RX 460
GPU clock OCed to 1314 (was 1210). Memory clock OCed to 1800 (was 1750).

Should I tone down the OC (despite it being stable for months)? Or is there something wrong with something else?

Thanks for your help!

  1. See if turning down the OC helps. Due to electro-migration the OC a chip is capable of at a certain voltage goes down over time. So you either have to turn down the OC or increase the voltage, which increases the rate of electro-migration and the rate for which your chip will burn out. So it is up to you which you want/can to do. Doesn't have to be it. Could just need to reload your drivers/windows etc...But if turning down your OC help, electro-migration or to much heat are likely the issues.
