Greetings to everyone! I'm not so direct, usually, but few seconds ago something happened that scared me a lot. Around three weeks ago I purchased a MSI RX5700XT Evoke OC, and today, browsing the dragon center, I tried to add a game for the game mode, Madden 20. Curious about it, I launched it, but even changing the controls, the screen flickered, got pixelated, green and in maybe three seconds the signal was gone.
Do I have to be worried about it? Now it's around 50°C, pretty normal, I suppose. I also updated the adrenalin software. Is my graphic card damaged?
Thanks in advance to anyone who'll help me.

Hi
Could be some driver bug that simply panicked about what you've done. If it works under full load then I don't see a reason to worry about it.

Phew, thanks for the reply, Nichrome. How can I check it? I don't dare to use the game mode again, but i tried another run on Madden and (lucky for me) nothing happened... should I use some game as a workbench, or maybe use some benchmarck software? Could them be of any help?

You could run FurMark for half hour, run Unigine Valley Benchmark few times. But if it's a bug, then it could be specific scenario that causes it to crash.

Here's the Unigine result. In the end the GPU was at 59°C but it's gone back to 48° in two minutes. Just one thing: the OS is Windows 10 Pro, not 8. Unfortunately, after years as a Mac user, I can't read these data. Are they good or bad? :(
Code:
Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0
FPS:175.5
Score:    7342
Min FPS:    33.7
Max FPS:    283.1

Well if the Madden game is the only thing problematic and what Nichrome suggested worked well (like the results show) there is no hardware issue. It is a pure game software issue. Contact game support.

There is a news: I heaard the coil noise. I heard of it, but this is the first time I experience it myself. Is it a problem? Is my GPU defective?

Coil whine is common and doesn't indicate faulty hardware. Can be caused by many things, mainly by PSU.

Yeah good quality PSU. Some combinations just cause coil whine. It's an electrical component after all. Phones also coil whine under load, though due to how small SOC is, it is hard to hear it..

So I don't have nothig to fear? The card won't be damaged by the coil whine?

No. It is normal behaviour of electrical components.
