I keep getting artifacts...

Post  (102)AxXiDeNT on Mon Dec 13, 2010 6:00 am

If you wonder why I'm not online so often anymore it's because my GPU is slowly starting to die...

After liek 20 minutes ingame my screen looks like this


And then it crashes.

I'm installing the latest drivers right now, so lets hope that it works Smile

wow, you should definitely buy a new and more powerful power supply (thermaltake i suggest) and a cpu fan (coolermaster for example) which cools also the gpu.

Also, run gboost when you are playing a game.

I use it all the time while playing although i have a good pc.

56°C in Idle isn't that much... artefact-fails normally came up over ~100°C (only possible when graphiccard is running full power (for example Crysis))

not enough Power could be a reason!!!

there are different programs to over/under-clock your GPU (nvidia/ati) - google for it ! (i use RivaTuner for my ati)

you can also install a Fan-Control program to regulate all your fans inside - speedfan for example http://speedfan.softonic.de - google for it ! Smile

..and maybe a temperature-checking program - for example CPUID HW Monitor http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html - or google it bounce

I haven't been able to answer here cause my PC completely crashed and Windows wasn't able to start for some reason...
But it's all fixed now, but I wont be playing CoD 4 for a while because I don't want this to happen again.
I have put together a list of components that I think I'll buy in 3 months and I can post it here.

MSI 870A-G54 AM3
AMD Phenom2 X4 955 3,2GHz Black Edition
A-Data 4GB (2x2048MB)1600Mhz Game Series
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC
Fractal Design Tesla 650W 80+
1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ
Cooler Master Elite 430
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM

All that and an ESD bracelet that prevents ESD damage to the components when installing them. And a DVD Writer/Reader.
Totally ~ 7000 kr (700 euro)


I'm planning on upgrading the GPU to a 6950 when I can afford it and unlock it to a 6970 Very Happy
