There must be something wrong with my build

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So yea, the title says it all, I have replaced 2 graphic cards because they started doing artefacts and now, my recent replacement has started to do some artefacts too... there must be something wrong... something messing up my graphics cards... I can't believe three times in a row i burn gpus which don't even go over 70 degrees...

So here was my old build which messed up 1 gpu ( r9 270x msi gaming 2gb edition)
fx 8320 4.2 OC
r9 270x msi gaming 2gb edition
8gb ram 1866
gigabyte 970a-d3p
650w gold nex evga power supply


Now my new build which has messed up my last gpu and now my new one which has started doing artefacts today ( asus R9 280X-DC2T-3GD5 )
I5-4690k 4.2 OC
r9 280x asus DC2T
8gb ram 1866
gigabyte gaming 5
650w gold nex evga power supply


NOTE: The gpu's were on light overclock ( only 50mhz gpu clock over the stock settings ) which I have seen people having safe overclocks way higher than mine

Thanks for help!

Reset to stock and see if you still have artifacts. If not, try raising the power limit when overclocked.

Lots of factors could be involved here....

First of all, on a totally different system, with a totally different GPU, and you got artifacts..... the two should have nothing to do with eachother, and could be total coincidence (with the exception of the power supply, which sadly, could cause issues amonst different systems, but let's check everything else first).

Here are some things to be aware of.

Asus 280x are extremely prone to artifacting right out of the box (unless Asus really did something to fix all the problems everyone has with them, but even then you could buy a new card, and get old stock, because that card'sa sales slowed to a crawl evintually, given all the issues).

Secondly. Running a 50MHz overclock is no safe bet, especially on a factory overclocked card.
You need to run bone stock, as suggested, and verify the system will complete a run through 3dmark or something like, with no issues.
Then, if you plan to overclock, go in tidbits of 5 or 10MHz. Once you get artifacts from there, your only option is to keep the clock speeds right before that point, or to add power/voltage.

Can you post some screen shots of the artifacts you are seeing?

Ish no I couldn't... Only if i was recording, a wierd green or white triangle flashes in the middle of my screen, i barely have time to see it and it happens once every 15 minutes or so... But it starts like that and then it goes worse...

Sounds like typical Asus 280x TOP issue to me....
Sometimes there would be strange "shards" in some games. I had to run 14.4 or 14.7 beta drivers, and undervolt VRAM to 1.5v with BIOS update to correct it.
You may want to check Afterburner and check your VRAM voltage. If it's already at 1.5v, then you have the revised version of the card.

Also check GPU Z and see it the VRAM reports as Elpida or Hynix.

it says Hynix and what do you mean by VRAM voltage in my afterburner? under bios you mean?
