Thing is, the last month I had weird things happening. Screen blacks out for 2-4 seconds, then comes back on while gaming, screen does a small explosive sound ( hard to describe ) and an artifact like thingy flashes horizontally across the screen for a second, I get black square artifacts ( 1440P screen so very small ) and so on. This only happens in one game, Elite Dangerous Horizons. While in Windows the screen went nuts two times and everything got mixed up, and while playing Heroes of The Storm the textures flickers constantly ( not all, just some ).
All in all, I got all these small nuisances that occurs relative frequently but random. I suspected that it was the card that was faulty, but thing is I ran 3D mark and Furmark for like 40-60 min and nothing shows up, works good, no errors or display artifacts.
The vendor has offered to take the card in for testing, they told me they will run the card for hours in Furmark etc for a full 24 HRS. And since these errors I wrote about above are non consistent what worries me is that if they do not find any faults I will recieve the card back after it being stressed really hard, i.e in worse shape than I left it in.
What should I do? Could it be the display? It is a Acer XG270HU 1440P 144 Hz Freesync monitor, the GPU is not overclocked and the PSU is a Corsair RM1000i ( quality stuff ), motherboard is MSI GODLIKE X99.
Halp! : ) Pls.
