I have no problems with the psu i have problems with the "drivers"
A bad PSU can cause components to misbehave, again causing drivers to crash. It's not very common, but definitely not rare either.

Have you set your CPU and RAM to default clocks? Tried running Memtest to check for memory errors? Tried a DDU driver uninstall and reinstall?

Reinstalling wont help because amd drivers are made by pure vomit

And now i run on 2 gpus a rx 5600 xt and my old rx 560 and both hit 100% so its not the psu problem

also ive never seen the gigabyte 5600 xt gaming oc hit above 130 W overclocked to the max allowed by the vbios update FA0

I've never had any driver issues with my AMD cards, so I wouldn't exactly agree with that - but I guess YMMV. Also, you came here looking for help, right? I would suggest listening to the advice you are getting if you are actually interested in trying to fix this or getting any more help. A DDU driver uninstall and reinstall is a basic troubleshooting step that can fix a lot of problems.

Also, you don't seem to grasp the core of why the PSU is brought up: a bad PSU (for example one with a very noisy output or lots of voltage drop under load) can cause lots of weird issues that seem entirely unrelated to the PSU. This rarely has any clear relation to the max output of the PSU. And again, I'm not saying I think that is the case, but you do have a cheap PSU from a series with a relatively bad reputation, so it's entirely possible.

Did you reset your overclocks?

New bios update ...
Newer then the FA0 bios that claims 180W ? Cuz it only actually his 130w at 1820 core and 1860 mem clock and 120% power Target. And 100% fans might boost it to 140 w

Where is that 130W number from? Most monitoring tools only report GPU die power for AMD cards, which is not the same as card power as it excludes VRAM power, VRM losses and other ancillary circuitry. 180W still seems high for an RX 5600 XT, but 130W also sounds low.

Bro i'm scared if i reinstall the drivers they get even worst because the drivers on 5000 are mostly on crack (even minecraft crashes when it is cpu dependent) but it seems like most problems are on the Direct X12 api because i almost never saw a problem on Vulkan api

And tbh i never saw issues with the psu never got noisy no core drops

It's likely the overclock isnt stable, and its causing the driver to crash.
Software needs stable hardware to work correctly, or it crashes - and yes GPU drivers are sensitive to unstable overclocks.
Your PSU could be faulty, but even my system doesnt hit 400W measured at the wall, you dont need a high wattage PSU (although it could be failing, that does happen randomly)

set your CPU and GPU to their factory speeds and voltages, and see how things behave

I have stable overclock all cores hit 4ghz without any problem (even had room for more overclocking but that showed some unstable results)

and my ryzen 1400 VR system could pass every single test i threw at it, but it would crash out in VR games by resetting the GPU and/or USB drivers. no overclock is ever guaranteed to be stable, test at stock.

Minecraft is a terribly written piece of software running in a Java VM (which in itself is a terrible idea) that crashes if you look at it wrong. That likely has nothing to do with your drivers (or if the driver crashes, it's likely that the game caused it to crash and not the other way around).

Unless you have some sort of electricity sensing superpower, you can't tell if your PSU is creating more electrical noise than it should without the use of an oscilloscope. I was not talking about auditory noise (sound). As for voltage drop: how are you monitoring that? Software voltage monitoring is notoriously unreliable.

As for reinstalling drivers: there's absolutely no reason to be scared of that. It's pretty much the first step of any such troubleshooting session. And the reputation of RX 5000-series drivers being terrible is very, very overblown - they were quite bad when the cards launched, and there were some new issues when the 5600 XT hit, but the vast majority of issues were cleared up within a few weeks. If this is a driver issue, you are likely just having a run of bad luck.

If your system is unstable and it's overclocked, there is a significant chance that the OC is the reason, even if it otherwise seems stable. How did you verify the stability of your OC? 24h+ runs of Prime95? OCCT for a similar time? Memtest + some memory-heavy long-term workload to stress RAM? Unless you have done serious long-term testing there is no way of knowing if your OC is stable or just seems that way. Especially RAM OC'ing is a serious can of worms that needs a lot of knowledge, time and effort to get right.

Even furmark crashes some times and furmark has nothing to do with cpu only gpu

Exactly. That is only for the die, not the whole card.

That can still be down to memory instability. Also, furmark is a torture load designed to maximise power draw and nothing else. If it triggers crashes, that could indeed indicate poor quality power coming from your PSU (a severe voltage drop, for example, will cause the GPU or driver to crash).

Also, a 4-hour video render is not sufficient to ensure an overclock is completely stable.

Now can you please reset your clocks and retest? And do a DDU driver uninstall and a fresh reinstall (after a reboot)? At this point you are spending more time arguing against our suggested troubleshooting steps than you would need to spend testing them...

Tbh i think ur right psu problem my rx 5600 xt lights stopped working and as soon i removed the rx560 they lights turned back on

It's hard to understand what you mean from the way you write - care to elaborate and rephrase a bit? Which lights? On the GPU, or other lights? If others, what are they connected to? And do you have both an RX 560 an an RX 5600 XT? Did you have both installed at once?

Benchmark Scores Faster than yours... I'd bet on it. :)

Furmark shouldn't be used....period. The difference in power from gaming load to furmark isnt much, believe it or not. If you notice, both amd and nvidia cards throttle clocks and voltages to fit under the power limit...nvidia runs a couple hundred mhz lower, in fact.

To all, stop using Furmark as a test for gpus. Both amd and nvidia call it a power virus and suggest to not use it. Again, if you arent testing at the voltage and clockspeed you game at...what good is it, really? Use UL's Time Spy or Firestrike...

I confirmed that the drivers are the problem

I left my pc open for 2 days on resident evil 3 and after i switched to another game it died
