i built my first pc like 2 weeks ago and everything was good untill today when i first tried to OC it. its a sapphire 7970OC edition btw. basically i OC it by like 2% just to test it (yes only 2%) and it crashed so i got scared and reset it and all that through afterburner.
then 10 minutes later while using my browser some heavy duty screen tearing began occurring and triangles of all sorts and colors began appearing on the screen. my computer generally got very laggy. i changed hdmi cords and inputs and all that and the problem persisted so i took off the GPU and without it all seems good. should i leave it out for a few minutes or what do i do?
* also, the temperature dropped by like 15 degrees down to low 30's from the usual 45 degree idle temp.
