    burn the card, throw it in the trash! NEVER think of MSI ever again!

    give it a chance, perhaps it's a driver problem as they suspect!

First, explain, why the warranty will give you the middle finger. If you must destroy it though, I want add an option to your list; tannerite.
the exact problem is the card is not artifacting when it's over 37c and when taking it to their maintenance room "no AC and thus a little bit warm!" the card does not artifact at all! so it's hopeless untill real artifact appears in windows aero or gaming! in my room which is sub 20c I see nightmares of colorful dots!

it's a non-reference card, and I don't like the flashing stuff! it's safer to love my 6950 for being 6950

I have a 6870 (Cat 11.4 Preview March 23) and I don't have that artifact in MS Paint. Maybe other 6950 users can give feedback.
