It is the frame buffer corrupting, i.e. GDDR, GFX RAM.... Few cards have temp monitoring for the RAM.

An aftermarket cooler, heatsink pads, or heavy underclocking are the only real fixes.

Sometimes an oven bake helps too, as it is often the solder that is degrading due to the heat. But this is an extreme measure.

Could be a temperature problem. Check your temps when running games. Esp. GPU

If OK check your RAM, take out one stick at a time to see if it makes a difference



I am not good at comp, it says GPU load between 97 amd 99. and temp 56C. is that good or bad?

and how do i do this? 2.Increase the timeout to allow more time to complete the really tough rendering parts. Microsoft provides the information on how to modify the Windows Registry to achieve this.

56 C sounds OK. if that's at 99% Load. As americanbrian says it could be the frame buffer at fault, if the onboard RAM on the GPU is faulty it would produce those results. If it has been running at around 56 C that should not cause problems with the solder, maybe you have been unlucky and just have a bad stick of GDDR5. Is the card still within Warranty period? Perhaps you could get it replaced.

I had Geforce 470 before, and it kinda had same problem, i never had problems wit it until i update drivers for nvdia. this card keeps doing like the last one just closing and sayong the drivers stop working, I am not good at this but it cant be the same thing for 2 cards. the GDDR5.

but is there to drop GPU. i Have oCCT program to see overclokign and i think i over clock but idont know how to upload the pic here to show you, and if it is, how can i drop the overclocking?

Also when i ran test in MSI kombuster on the right it says how much power it uses from Video card it goes over 100% and becames red and when it does thats when it shuts down

Sounds like your powersupply can't provide enough juice. Whats your complete system specifications, including model names and numbers ( even the power supply).

+1 to chainzsaw, if the psu is underpowered the voltages will drop below a level that the system can cope with, so a list of everything in the case would help...

it appears that something is OC'ed as well?... maybe its a bad bios flash on the GPU?

Anyway I think we can agree that this guy is probably out of his leauge with regards to fixing it on his own, so returning the card to where he bought it would be advisable...

@ dodger, the GDDR creates its own heat. The GPU could run cool and the RAM still can run way hot... I for example have a card that monitors the RAM temp and GPU temp and the GPU can be at 60C while the RAM is at 85C+ (skyrim is bad for this). My cooler cools both but lots of cheaper brands don't cool the GDDR at all. Seen this around loads. the block shaped artifacts are a dead giveaway...

to the op...run cpu-z and post your mb info there. it could be a simple thing as needing a bios update.
gpu-z will tell you your gpu info.
memtest will test your ram for any errors.
one thing to check with cou-z is under the spd tab it tell you the speed your ram can run. check that the mb is using one of those settings.
