So I overclocked it and added an 80mm fan blowing on the heatsink 24/7 and it ran fine. I decided to stop OCing it and took the fan away, still working fine. I started foloding and since then, my video card has started to get numerous artifacts. Could it be the heat from the CPU affected my video card now or just damage from the OCing kicking in.

Since I removed the 80mm fan, it's been running stock and even when I underclock it, it stills gets artifacts.

I was wondering if I could somehow close a pipeline to prevent the artifacts (assuming it's only one pipe that's damaged)

Any ideas?

Have a look at the heatsink itself. Those screws gotten a bit loose perhaps?

Screws?

This is a cheap GPU, no screws, plastic heatsink.

The heatsink is extremely loose though (I can move it around, so I think I'm going to unhook it for now.
