OBS Crashes Whole PC on Heavy Load


New Member
So over the two years I've been dual booting Linux I've been distro hopping around from arch, debian, and fedora. Every time I try to record gameplay with OBS after about 5 minutes the screens go black and my gpu fans spin to the max. This happens to me no matter the distro, and I can't find a solution other than, "PSU stability issues".
This doesn't make sense to me because I use it regularly on Windows as well recording at 1440p 60fps about 30000 kbps. Recorded MWII High settings with a GPU and CPU stress test running in the background and no crashes. On linux it takes 5 minutes on any graphically intensive game I played to crash. Speaking of which if I use gpu-screen-recorder, a project that uses nvenc to record (gpu only, just like shadowplay on windows) it never crashes, no matter how high the bitrate.
