Watts, not Volts.
It`s most likely not a power issue.
It`s most likely a damaged card.
Try underclocking it (memory and core) and retesting.

i put the clocks down to 461 and 720 and all the artifacts went away and is staying down at 70C. should i move the clock up until i get a little artifacts or no?

Take the fan to 100% and take the clocks back up some.
