    Yeah its running smoothly. Have already double and triple checked thats its connected to the mobo correctly.
    Is there software that I can test power draw?

    Getting no more than 150 watts so psu shouldnt be the problem

    What I've noticed is that every time I check integrity of a game after it crashes or starts glitching, there is always files that fail to validate

    I would recommend getting a stronger PSU too man or probably have the wrong drivers, but i think its its the PSU.

    I Dont have a External GPU in my pc and i have a stronger PSU than yours. (i could be wrong)

    The latest driver that came out 2 days ago seems to have fixed it.

    Also to stop h1z1 from crashing I had to underclock my gpu
