Help With Sapphire 6870 BSOD, System Lockups And Artifacting

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well after RMA'ing my Asus 6870 i got a Sapphire and now i think its dead cos it is causing BSOD, system lockups and artifacting but my other Asus 6870 works like a charm.

I have tried drivers from 10.10e to 10.11 to 10.12 to 11.1 beta and still no luck used driver sweeper and all does the great people of OCN have any ideas?

Sounds like it's gone...
Artifacting with no OC and after driver changes = no good.

RMA it.


OT:
Ryda, what's that clan website again?
