Destrto Hey everyone. I am necro-ing my own thread.

Last I mentioned, I thought it was an overheating issue. Well, I have determined that it is not due to overheating.

I now have the card (Powercolor RX 580 8G Red Devil) on a full cover waterblock. And if I switch my resolution back to 4K, the static appears randomly again. So temps are not the issue, as the card only sees about 45C under heavy load.

So far, I have tried multiple HDMI cables (even an active HDMI cable), and every HDMI port that the TV has. I get the same issue.

My TV has a setting that allows me to switch between HDMI 1.4 and 2.0. But this appears to change nothing in regards to the static.

Unable to RMA it as I bought it second hand.

If I keep the side of my case open, the temps stay under 60C and games run fine. It could very well be a fault with the card.

I will try to do some rearranging of my fan layout, and/or try to adjust my fan curve for my water loop (2x240mm rads in P/P each) My MSI 990FXA Gaming board won't let me ramp up the fans until the CPU reaches 45C or above, which almost never happens. So I think my card is getting overheated because of this..

Your temperature is interesting though. Anyway to down tune the card to get temps under control? Anything up with you case that your GPU is not getting any fresh air?
I did try every input on the TV, with no difference. I believe it is a heat issue.

HDMI 1.4 will support 4k at 30hz only.
If you can get it running at 4k 30hz and not 60 i assume this is your issue.
I cannot find the actual specs for this tv online?

EDIT: If you are using the 290 X which is in your sig it does not support HDMI 2.0. I owned this card, you can however run 60Hz with Display Port.
Tv Supports HDMI 2.0, it has a setting that allows me to switch between 1.4 and 2.0. https://www.sceptre.com/overview-365.html
I have to change the monitor options within Windows back to 60Hz whenever I change the resolution. (Display adapter properties>Monitor tab)
It runs at [email protected]

I am not using a 290X, I used to , which is why I have that in my Sig. I am now using a PowerColor RX 580 Red Devil.

Native resolution of the TV is [email protected] (2160P). However I do notice that whenever I change the resolution, the TV changes back to 30Hz.

Not sure if any of this is helpful.

I'd sort that out before you kill the card.
