  1. take out your gpu for a few min and try to see what the computer will do using the integrated card. if this works OK then the card is going bad. this is the first step.
  2. dont have integrated video
    i also instaled a sata dvd 5 days ago....
  3. Oh really. according to every motherboard i have ever seen. they come with integrated video cards.

    Most motherboards, in fact, do not have integrated video.

    This sounds like a typical GPU overheat. Let the card cool, then turn it on again - are the triangles (called artifacts) gone? Check the temperature of the GPU in the Catalyst Control Center.
  5. I stand corrected sorry for this. and i wouldnt say most. ever high end one i have ever have had has had integrated graphics

  6. hi, right now im playing

    CCC ses T= 73 C activity 99 fan speed 30%
  7. something i would like to add is that the artifacts i saw them when i turned the computer on in the morning so no chance to be hot i think perhaps im wrong
  8. Best answer
    perhaps its another defective 5850
  9. ya, perhaps =(
  10. Just call the company and send it back for repair i think that is the best bet they al have good warranties.

    Dude, none of the X58 boards have integrated graphics. As far as Intel CPUs on LGA 1156 only the lower end boards have integrated graphics, and really they only have the outputs for integrated graphics as the IGP is on lower end I3 and dual core I5 CPUs. The quad core I5s and I7s do not have an IGP. As for AMD, Integrated graphics are only on low and midrange boards. Higher end models use the 790FX (soon to be replaced with the 890FX) which does not have integrated graphics.
  12. Anyway... Yeah it's probably an overheated GPU lexrg. Make sure the fan is properly spinning and the heatsink isn't clogged some how. I would also try manually setting the fan to a higher speed. You really shouldn't have problems with the card at idle though.
  13. i will check that today and post some info in the night Ty
