Looks like you've got faulty pipelines. I'd flash back to your original bios to stop it.

No, the GTO has 12p. What's the make of your card and I'll upload a bios for you

Sorry, couldn't find the club 3d, but here's a Sapphire one that will work just the same. Just note that it's for 1.6ns ram. If you have 2.0ns ram then let me know and I'll alter it tomorrow for you.

hmm i think its just overheating , does overheating cause artifacts? i presume so, its running at 42C idle, but as soon as i start a game or movie etc it shoots up to 80c+ any ideas

Yeah, heat does cause artifacts. Maybe replacing the Thermal Grease with Arctic Silver 5 or try aftermarket cooling like the Zalman VF770-cu.
The GPU is rated to run at those temps, even though they are quite high so it might not be a heat issue.

Did you tamper with the cooling at all? It shouldn't be getting so hot. But even 80C is not really something to worry about, just a bit hot.

Can you RMA it? If you can, just don't mention that you flashed the bios.

Sounds like you fried something then. Now might be a good opertunity to upgrade to a new card though
