Crossfire 5870 - artifacts?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have 2 reference 5870's that were working well. I took them apart to paint the plastic cases.. put them back together.

Now in some games i get what i think is called artifacts they are like triangle color blurs. I first noticed them in WoW and tested each graphics card indepentently and then found the one that was giving trouble and rebuild it again and the problem went away.

Now i've tried a few other games and they work others still give the issues.. for instance wow is ok, call of duty black ops is perfect but sniper ghost warrior and heaven benchmarks are full of these triangles.

Anyone have any advice?

Well if it was working before painting, and now it doesn't, I think it's clear that something went wrong. I suggest clean off the paint and RMA (if possible).

That was sort of stating the obvious.

Lets try this a different way.

1) What sort of things can cause artifacting and are there ways to correct that, i've heard references to 'baking' or maybe replacing vrm thermal pads?

2) My understanding is replacing stock cooler does not void xfx warranty, so painting plastic shouldn't be a problem right?

Did you unseat the cooler form the chip? Did you reapply thermal paste?

Yes, i put on artic silver 5.

However I did reuse the original thermal pads on the rest of the chip. Some ripped a little but i manipulated them to work.

And try to underclock them by 5-20Mhz, it won't really affect performance but should remove them.

Ok the 2nd card runs MUCH cooler also the VDDC on a heavy benchmark comes in at 1.1625 the first card at about 30c is at a vddc of 1.6

Changing the clock to 5-20 lower did resolve the artifacting issue in that game. However its only happening in the game.

I think AS5 takes around 100Hours to cure properly although those temps aren't that high for a 5870 working hard.

I think AS5 is 200 hours to fully cure.

Rebuilt the second card again.. temps are much better now.

I can run heaven on max settings and get through the benchmarks now.

Still get artifacts in the one game... guess i just wont play that~
