That sucks I noticed the other day while racing dirt 2 that I was getting some wierd green flashes on the screen every once in a while. I might be having an issue as well but just not as obvious as artifacting so to say.

My X1900GT, a Sapphire card, actually would do these sorts of things and eventually my Samsung monitor ended up with stuck pixels. I thought the monitor was bad and I was pissed. Eventually the card started getting even sicker and I had to have it RMA'd. Once the card was replaced, it no longer had the stuck pixels!!!

I don't know if this contributed, but I was overclocking that card using ATITOOLs at the time. The card probably was running very hot and may contributed to early life failure, but I can't be totally sure.

I have not had problems since.

Thanks gr8sho. I actually do overclock my gpu's from 725 to 865 for f@h and I useually leave the overclock there when I game. I think I'll turn the overclocks off and run them at default after this January fold-a-thong is finished just to see if I still get any of those weird anomalies while I'm gaming.

That's the first thing asus or otherwise that I've ever had to RMA.
Been lucky I guess.
The RMA request was as smooth as butter.
It's all boxed up now and ready ship first thing in the morning.

They can take a while some times to get your RMA processed, tested and sent back to you. Some times they try to send you your same DOA crap back to you. Just a fair warning from my personal experience in the past.

Let me add to this as well. Sapphire had warned me it would take time to deal with the RMA as it happened around Christmas-time IIRC. It took even longer than than they told me and I was really getting pissed at them. I think they had one guy in Raleigh doing all of this testing. Finally I was told, yup, the card can't be fixed and they shipped me a new one. I was not happy with the length of time the process took, but I was glad they gave me a working card back. I had bought this brand specifically because it had a 2yr warranty. I don't know anymore in which company to put my faith in should I need to invoke the warranty

hey guys, since i got that nuctua cooler, i decided to start pushing my rig.

I tested cpu stability, currently stopped@4ghz 1.536. voltage at 1.52 is not stable, it's going between 1.50-1.52. and 1.536 is the least voltage to get it stable.
this was at 200fsb, all stock except multi and vcore.

I then checked my ram, it's corsair xms2(800) but the one with no heatspreaders so i decided to leave it at 888mhz. determined the stable voltage at 1.9(1.8stock) might even go higher, but this is the milestone i'm testing.

I tested fsb(up to 250), cpu to nb voltage and other things.

Currently i'm running at
4ghz, 222x18,
cpu to nb stock voltage
ram@1.9v 888mhz, default timings
pci-e upped to 2725(2500stock,~10%increase) stock volts.

temps are looking good, idle of a 34-36, max load(prime95) cores at 52,and cpu at 63 max. 52 is the peak, usually it's at 50-51core and 59-60cpu

I was always only paying attencion to the "core"temps and not the "cpu" value. i get the cpu temps from everest. Should i be worried about that value? core values match with every program i use.

The weird thing is that cpu voltage is not stable! if i set it to 1.52 after some stressing it drops to 1.504. If i set it to 1.536 it goes between 1.536 and 1.52 after some stressing. Any ideas on this one?

validation
i'm currently running prime95, might stop at around 14-16 hours.

edit: it seems that after a few hours in prime95, that vcore sliding from 1.536 to 1.52 causes one thread in prime95 to give an error. i upped the voltage from bios one notch (to 1.5125) and i now get a 1.551-1.536 in cpu-z. everest shows 1.54. those voltages are in the red zone, but my temps are still under 53. What's your opinion in this? will it be ok, voltage-wise? wouldn't want to fry anything

First I would put the pci-e clock back to 2500,it does not like/help to be oc'd.
Try raising the cpu-nb Ht volts to 1.25v.
Core temps are ok.
The vcore decrease you have is called vdroop and happens with all boards,some are worse than others.
Your,s is not bad.
As for running those clocks and volts 24/7,do you need the 4.0 24/7?
If you can get 3.8 with less than 1.5 vcore you would not notice a difference in performance(unless benching) and would be easier on the whole system.

Good luck
