1. CPU was overclocked since i bought it using default option in BIOS, as i said before i tried resetting BIOS setting to default, thus removing any overclocking.
2. I play Witcher 3 atm, tried Metro Exodus also for about 2 hours, it was fine, and Red Dead Redemption 2 - PC rebooted during starting cinematic so i stopped trying it.
.....
1. On the overclock, I would just check to make sure the default didn't include XMP

2. When setting up new builds, I create several BIOS and MSI AB profiles:
a) Stock
b) Everyday Usage ... highest stable OC with confortable temps
c) Extreme Gaming ... Highest stable OC, HT off (usually about + 0,2 GHz)
d) Problem Games like Metro and Battlefield

So yeah, some games are particularly tough with extreme OCS.

3. Was just stating the obvious since topic came up

4. I moltly suspect the VRM quality ... the VRMS on your components have an easier time when they don't have to chase significant variances coming from the MoBo.

5. The side comment on th BSOD was just that, it should not do this if disabled. The windows system log however is available anytime to vire. No... geez don't post the entiure log. But do open event viewer and examine the log, focusig on the time of the crash ... look for any yellow warning / red error entries... read them, copy them and do web searches... post JUST those entries here ... error description and details.

6. Try the card in another box.

7. There was a time back in the day when Furmark throttled ... I have not encountered in many years, even on laptops.

Dont wanna joy beforehand, but it works fine for now. The only thing i did was trying to update Realtek audio driver for my mobo, after failing to do that i just deleted it. I guess there's chance it was conflicting somehow with something in my graphics card?

Btw if it is the reason it kinda explains why it went well 2 days after reinstalling windows, windows update did install it i guess, but a bit later.
