Hey guys, wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured this would work. Couple weeks ago I started getting some artifacting in games(WoW, FC3, Skyrim, and a little bit in DOTA 2). It would also freeze up the computer and either BSOD or the computer would restart itself with no error.
I have a HD7950 Sapphire, phenom 2 x4 955, 8gb of 1600mhz memory, Asrock m3a770de Mobo, and a corsair cx600 psu.
Thing is, after I tried fresh windows install, I was still getting the problems. I tried 12.10 and 12.11 beta drivers. I put the card in my wife's computer, no issues. Put it back in mine, still had issues. So, I put in an old 6770 I had, still had crashing, restarts, BSODS. So I removed the Corsair PSU, put in a BFG GS450(not ideal I know). Well, that didn't work either.
I replaced the corsair cx600 and hd7950 with a hd6770 and BFG gs450 and still having the same issues...motherboard or a slot gone bad? Ran memtest too, memory turned out fine. I also had checked voltages and temperatures with CPUID hardware monitor and everything seemed fine. Video card would never go over 52 degrees, CPU would stay around 47 degrees.
