EAH4850 1GB artifact problem

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
When it heats up artifacts start to appear. I'm running caseless at 100% fan speed so it isn't ambient heat problem and its not overclocked. Tested in Fallout 3 and 3dmax03.

Tried catalyst v8.12 and v8.11, disabling manual fan control, anyway the radiator stays of humid temperature, can't specify but it isnt too high.

I'm thinking maybe BIOS voltage settings are too high, should i flash it?

I would RMA it if you can't fix it with new drivers.

Good idea if only the market from which i bought it wouldn't be bankrupted lololol i would hate to wait anyway. If bios flash thingy wont help i will attempt to sell it as second hand and buy eah4870 maybe.

edit --------------------

Artifacts are playable so its not that bad

If it would be a normal heat problem then all the 4850's users would cause massive world wide RMA rush which would evolve in ati bankruption lololol

I'll downgrade to driver v8523_Vista64 as it finishes downloading - one that you're running?
