Time to RMA my 5870?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi chaps,

I've had my 5870 Vapor-X for nearly a year now and it's still suffering GDoDs, occassional artifacts at the Windows desktop (after 10+ hours of desktop use, see attached), and causes the Windows desktop to flicker when I underclock it.

I can run Furmark for extended periods of time without issue and have managed a successful run through Video Memory stress Test.

Video Card Stability Test 1.0.0.3 can bring it to it's knees in around 20 minutes. GPU-Z logging taken whilst it's running shows the card doesn't hit temps over 65C.

OCCT GPU shows that the GPU peaks at around 80C under extended load. Voltages are good according to the logs, and I've never had any problems with my motherboard/PSU before I got my 5870.

Is it time for me to RMA it, or is this expected behaviour for 5870s?
