Problem (detail : had same pc set up with an older graphic card,without any issue,my 6770 was the last to be added on a fresh new OS installation) :
The first few days,noticed that after a few hours of gaming,i was noticing some distortions on my screen that i could describe as "horizontal tearing".
I'll let out my research for v-sync etc (1st thing to come in mind with tearing effects)and jump to my finds to today.
When the card temperature approaches or surpasses 60C,it starts this immage distortion i described.
Add to this,that GFX fan will NOT go up automatically as the temperature goes up,i end up having to force it manually through CCC Override to work to 100% to keep it around 58 degrees.
So,i end up with 2 questions :
1.Isn't 60 degrees a bit too low to start having this tearing?It's becoming unplayable.
2.Why there isn't an automatic way for the grafic card fan to work more as the temperature goes up?
A bit off topic:i'm at the verge of sending it back,since it's still in guarantee,just thought to use some help in case i miss something.
