Help: Crazy graphical errors in several pc games... - Page 2

Thread Starter 
would it make sense for it to be a memory problem? when it happens, i alt tab out of game, and check the memory usage and its almost 100%

any thoughts?

That is a possibility, as things like that happened to me when I didn't have enough memory and played WoW. The only thing, is that you say it happens after time, and I don't see how that would work if it was a memory problem.

Also, please fill out your Rig Profile(in User CP, top left) so it makes it easier for us to help you.

You shoudln't have bought Corsair you big n00b

I've seen the 'stretching away' to infinity before in Halo, but a graphics driver reinstall fixed that for me.

You sure you didn't get the white wee-wee on something?

What are your rails like on the PSU? Open up Asus Probe, run something like SuperPI and check the Vcore. More importantly, load up the graphics card and watch the +12V rail.

EDIT: Preferably use a multimeter on a spare molex. Its more accurate and it'll make it easier to check the +12V under GFX load.

Ok, slowly.

On the motherboard driver disk, there is a utility called Asus Probe. It monitors voltages and temperatures. Install it.

Make sure it is running, and open so you can see the graph of system voltages.

Download SuperPI here and run it to 32m. Watch the Vcore reading in Asus Probe while it is running.

Do you have a multi meter?
