Gigabyte 580GTX RMA Time?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have had this card since November 2010 so not that old and not very long ago it started crashing games to desktop and giving green artifacts all over the screen. It doesnt have to be in a game sometimes they come up while sitting on desktop.

Take a look see what you think

If its RMA time gigabyte seem rather fair when it comes to returns but one thing i did do is replace the paste for some IC diamond does that void warranty?

Its not the first gigabyte 580 to die on me i read alot of gigabyte 580's died in the last year maybe i was with the unlucky few!

Regards.

No I don't think it affects warranty as long as there aren't any physical modifications (that can't be reverted). Gigabyte RMA is pretty good and they aren't that strict compared to other brands (Palit for example).

Does this happen when its overclocked or on stock also? Could be a common unstable overclock. If it happens on stock, you might want to reinstall drivers and if this doesn't work looks like RMA time.

It does it on all versions of drivers and the clock is at stock settings and also never been overclocked

So i guess it is RMA time!

Thank you for the reply!
