Sounds like it may be the PSU the new AMD 6000 GPU and Nvidia 30 series do micro power spike a lot more and have been know to Trip the safety on some model PSU if the Overload is set to tight on the PSU it can trip on Power spikes
When you said "micro spike", is that one every few seconds I see a tiny drop in the FPS counter under "MainThread"?

I suppose before spending any money on a new power supply, I should try the newer BIOS first and see if that fixes it. Could always roll back.

No they happen at random mostly at the end of a loading screen gpu will go from low power to max power and can draw up to 2.5 times it rated power for 10 to 20 milliseconds. Most quality PSU can cope but some are more sensitive and activate a Overload of some other built in safety on the PSU.

When I got my PSU i added the GPU power load 250 watts as well as the rated CPU draw of 100 watts and multiplied by 2.5 to get in ball park is why I have a 850 Watt PSU

Not saying it is "impossible" but based on the screenshot, the GPU pulled 174w at 109% power. The 5600x is running stock, which is 65w. With a 700w PSU (regardless of quality) you should not be getting anywhere near close to power limit. Yes, 6000/30 series GPUs are known for power spikes but this isn't a 6800XT/6900XT/3080/3090.

Question about the BIOS images regarding the 1.2.0.5 bug. This one post says...

but my motherboard only has AMD ComboAM4PIV2 1.2.0.3b, so I can't do the workaround trick. Does it matter?
1.2.0.3c was same as 1.2.0.3b but with Win 11 support

BIOS has been updated to 1.2.0.6c. Now I will reinstall Windows 10 and install the drivers from the MSI support site.
As for the AMD chipset drivers, do I get them from MSI or AMD?

I installed the AMD chipset drivers for AM4/B550 (4.03.03.431) from AMD.com. Did this before updating the BIOS to 7C91v193, as the chipset drivers haven't been updated on the MSI site since Nov. 2021. It has been stable thus far.

Yep as above I get all my drivers from the sites like AMD. and Intel directly as that way they are always the most up to date

While I'm in the BIOS, is there anything that I should change besides enabling XMP?
No, if you are trying to get a baseline to test for stability I wouldn't change any settings (aside from XMP of course). You can go back an apply any tweaks/OC (if you have any of that before) and see if that causes any instability.

Okay so I got Windows 10 installed and updated, all the drivers are from the MSI site except for the chipset, that's from AMD directly. XMP is enabled and I've adjusted the Virtual Memory in Windows to 32GB - 32GB and optimized my drives. I never got a reboot but the game was still acting up. Sure enough it was the helicopter and custom skin addon which I've now deleted and the game is running steady on "High-End" graphics at 60fps. This image shows how bad the game was running with that 3rd party addon.

I have no knowledge of FS2020 but if a third-party add-on was causing the issue, seems like terrible software. Hopefully that fixes your crash issue, good luck!

Thanks! I've got that feeling it might have been some other things also but yeah, regardless a new power supply is on my todo list.

Hi, the game is working perfectly. I'm not using any other apps like EVGA Precision X1 / MSI Afterburner and for some reason, my system "feels" a lot quicker with the new 1.2.0.6c BIOS. I don't know if that's possible.

Yep does seem to benchmark better for games

Bench done with identical OC settings

I also managed to set my best score ever with BIOS 1.2.0.6c
And I don't really do much just normal OC setting in the BIOS and the Radeon Software OC section.
