Final decisions, is this artifacting?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ive had this problem since a few weeks after i brought this card and im just sick of it, one week it will artifact, one week it while whine like a /insert bad word. another week it will reach 60c randomly idling. Considering i brought it in the winter, and it was idling around 17c-22c, 60c idling is a dramatic increase! But now im just seeing it artifact in everything white tiny dot's, weird wrong colours, flares etc. It's just annoying! I managed to pick a few screenies in Dirt 2 last night, i noticed when i watched videos on youtube they would give weird flares, like on 3DMark 11 i would get weird blue flares, which i think aren't supposed to be there. Anyway, here's my question. If i send this card off to Asus to be fixed, do you think they will replace it? or will they fix it? Also how long do they usually keep there card for how long does the whole process take? What are the chances of them turning their noses up to it? looking at it saying "no, its broke" then send it back exactly the same? Thanks i just want to get an idea from so members that have RMA'd to Asus before. I don't want to be stuck trying to game with a 512mb 8800GT @ 1920x1080 for months -_-

This may also be linked with the card itself: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/9910...litch-bug.html







(Please don't refer to my clock's as the issue, they are only stable benchmarking clock's i run @ stock 24/7)

THANKS

Sorry, I'm having a hard time seeing the issue from the screenshots. Maybe you could highlight them using Paint or something?

If there are artifacts at stock clocks and things are messing up, chances are that ASUS will fix it for you. If there's nothing wrong with it, they'll simply send it back. You have nothing to lose.

Randomly whining happens sometimes - it's just the capacitors being used. Some cards do it, some don't. Usually it's a persistent thing though, not a temperamental issue.

Ill highlight the artifacts, also should i show Asus the artifacts or will they just take no notice of them? do they have a down to earth customer service, or just robotic men told what to say kinda service?

Screen shot will not show artifacts. You will have to cam-cord your screen, or take pictures.

Appearance of white dots does sound like artifacting.

Asus RMA can take between a couple of weeks to a month, depends on where you live and the way you are RMAing.
If you see dots al over, and it does so under stock settings, and the card was not tempred in any way, they will most likely replace it with a refurbished or an open box item. Sometimes with a new item, depends on their stock.

Updated post above with screenshot

Screenshots do show artifacts. It just captures what the card is rendering. At least, when I had artifacts, screenshots would capture them.

Can you try the 8800GT and see if you still get them?

I'm not seeing any artifacts in those pics. Edit: unless those red shapes aren't supposed to be there? IDK I don't own Dirt 2.

The blue lens flare you're seeing in the 3dmark video is supposed to be there. I'm not sure what the problem is, but AFAIK most companies will send out a refurb or new model rather than making you wait on repairs. At least that's what MSI does.

What artifacts?
Just in dirt 2? Run Crysis and see if you get any, because I don't see a damn thing in those screenshots.

Would you say the above photo's of dirt 2 show artifacts? i couldn't capture the white dot's they are too fast to capture. Ill give my 8800GT a blast.

Oh good, at least now i know 3Dmark 11 isnt messed up. I hope Asus just send me an open box one or something, I just really don't want to wait for a ages just for them to say "It's not broken" then send it back. I would rage! I had the same problem a while ago with an harddrive, it was clicking and the mouse would disconnect randomly, tried everything to resolve.

So i took it back to the shop they said there was nothing wrong with it, found out i had a bad mouse and the HDD was in power saving mode. I just really want to get my PC sorted out, with my new UD3P on it's way!
