My 1080 is not repsonding when I play some games.

When I launch a game like minecraft after awhile of playing (Like 3 min) my 1080 will just stop displaying. When I play other games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds or Rainbow Six Siege it works fine. My psu has a 6pin connector and an 8pin connector and I bought a 6 to 8 pin adapter and Im wondering if its the adapter or my psu its just not strong enough to support the gpu. But if that was the case why does my gpu work fine in other games? If you could help me out it would be great. :) Also the fans go 100% and the sensors stop reading when i loose video.

  1. Best answer
    Getting a new higher quality PSU is a very good idea before you burn up either the PSU or the GPU or worse.

    The TR2 is one of the worst PSU's on the market today.

    Replace it ASAP.

  2. please post the whole model number of your TR2, there are more than one out there
    doesn´t your TR2 have 2x 6+2PIN PCIe connectors?

  3. The psu only has one 6+2 pin and one 6 pin without the extra 2

  4. There is some text that says: Model: TR2-600NL2NC hope that’s it.

  5. would check the whole system
    hard drives with its manifacturer´s tools
    temperatures of GPU and CPU

    But the 72% efficiency of your PSU is really bad, if you can, return it and get a good one for a similar price

    you can try to exchange the two 8pin connectors which are now connected to your 1080.
