So I have this combo-
GA-MA785GM-US2h rev 1.1
AMD 435 X3
I had made a post before with issues with green artifacting after youtube videos and artifacting for flash images. This happened only after I unlocked my cpu, so I attributed it to a bad core and locked it back up. I got a new PSU and the hyper 212+ so I decieded to give it another shot. I tried something different this time though, I put EC firmware to Hybrid and ACC to auto like before, but then I disabled all the cores that I could, leaving me with the one that I could not disable. To my surprise the green artifacts were still there, just as bad as before. So now I am starting to think it is something to do with my motherboard or something in my OS that doesn't like the firmware switch(using Windows 7 Professional 64bit). Any suggestions as to what can cause this besides a bad unlock.
Here is an example of the artifacting(all settings at stock volts no OC)-
OK this is just a guess that just makes sense in my head anyway, either the primary core that you cannot deactivate manually is the faulty one that is locked when you turn ACC off or is there L3 cache that has unlocked that is causing the instability.
