670MX problem, Screen flickers only when a light gray color is present - Page 2

Yes it looks like they used a lot, to the point where I can see it off the sides. If they did use thermal paste on the VRAM chips and it has oozed out on the side of the chip and a little tiny bit on the board, how does one go about cleaning it off the VRAM? I thought I read your not supposed to use any cleaning solution on the VRAM chips? I am worried when I pull this thing apart that they used paste on the chips and because it is below the face of the chip, I do not want to mess those chips up.

Well deepor... i took apart my whole laptop and guess what I found... ASUS did not put any thermal material between my gpu core and the heat sink... I pulled it apart and all of the thermal pads around the core for the VRAM and various chips was completely melted which is why it looked runny to me looking at it with the bottom cover off.

I have contacted ASUS, because I think it messed my card up with those artifact looking things I am seeing... I repasted my gpu and cpu and the temps do not break 62 Celsius on the core of the gpu at 100% load.

Well... good that you were interested in taking it apart. tongue.gif

The artifacts sound strange. I've only heard of and seen more extreme artifacts than what you have.

Uninstall any of the Asus bloatware, namely Asus "splendid video enhancement" and see if that fixes it.

Thanks Rockgod , I will try that.. It is so weird, like deepor stated, I have never seen artifacts like that.. I even ran tests on the vram and it showed no errors. I also have ran every bench mark test with artifact scanners and it comes back with no errors. I have even reflashed the original bios back and reinstalled drivers and it is still there. I will update you guys if I figure it out.. I have already called Asus and got an RMA number and will be sending it to them if I can't figure it out.. That bare copper on top of the core with no paste I am sure was no good for the video card.

Sad to say, but uninstalling the ASUS bloat ware in particular the splendid video enhancement did not fix my problem. I have uploaded a video to youtube for you guys so you can see in ever more detail what I am talking about. It is the same video I am sending with my computer to ASUS if I have to RMA it since I will be taking out the hard drive with all my personal files on it as well as the battlefield 4 game files. You do not have to watch the full video as you can see what I am talking about within the first minute... I had to explain stuff in the process so the ASUS technician can understand my concern and what I am talking about (hopefully it is not the same person who did not put thermal paste in between my gpu core and the heat sink mad.gif

Theres the link for anyone who wants to see what I am seeing, this may help you more to let me know if it is in fact gpu artifacting. Weird thing like I said before, this does not happen with every game or program, the only thing I can say I notice across the board is that when I look at anything on my computer, I can almost see the little squares of the individual pixles, if that makes sense. Everything looks a little grainier looking then it used to. When I say grainy I am talking about the overall quality or sharpness of the picture, seems like now there are jagged edges in places and things are not as smooth as they once were.

Thanks for all of your comments, I sincerely appreciate all the help.
