    I don't have such a good camera that can capture it and also lately the intensity of it is reduced for me. But people have presented this issue before in this forum better than me. Its some kind of image distortion/ compression artifact like symptom.

    There is no such virus/software settings that can affect bios logo and decides out of nowhere to change the intensity of the blur/compression artifact in bios logo and windows. But i am not sure if we all have same case. @Kladmaster do you have issues outside of games where you can see blur/jaggy text/icons in windows or in bios logo?

    It's happening for me even on Integrated GPU so flashing bios for Discrete GPU is not gonna do anything. Whatever it is it's affecting the whole PC. But you can try.

    True, North Bridge does not exist as a separate module anymore. Also some people saying that it's some crazy virus. I don't believe that at all. We should invest our time and effort learning/figuring about issues in power and how those issues can affect sensitive electronic components. That's the key to the solution of our issue at least for people with case 2.

    If you are trying to replace components at a new place. First make sure that the new place don't have this issue by observing someone else PC there. Then change components there starting from PSU and Mobo. After those 2 then replace GPU, CPU etc. Because PSU and Mobo are the ones that handles power. Never start from GPU first because the new GPU might show the same symptoms if it's getting the same fault in power from PSU and Mobo. GPU gets half of it's power from PSU(8 pin connector) and other half from PCIE slot i.e. from mobo. Also you can start by installing your GPU in someone's good PC, that way you can figure out fast if the GPU got damaged. Protection from whatever is in electricity depends on what in electricity are we dealing with. But if you have extra money laying around or you can return product after test then buying a Double Conversion Online UPS and also new PC is good way to start your test from. There are solutions depending on the problem according to this document (page 17): https://www.apc.com/salestools/VAVR-5WKLPK/VAVR-5WKLPK_R1_EN.pdf

    Not sure about tom's hardware but there is this thread where a guy said it happened after changing power settings in bios: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/998028/pc-components/all-games-to-flicker-shimmer-when-moving-/1/ Some people here in linus forum said that it occurred after overclocking. Overclocking has direct relation with power. For some it happened after changing outlet. For me it happened after moving to this house/city. I have shared what happened to fans in my PC and other issues after moving to this house. It's not like we don't have enough evidence that it's power especially for case 2.

    Screwdriver voltage tester will only tell you if the voltages on neutral are high. It will not tell you if voltages are proper or not. That's why a multimeter is required for proper voltage readings. But i am not sure if high neutral voltage is the sole cause of our issue as there were other power quality issues present in my case.

    Initially as soon as i moved to this house i didn't check voltages because i thought it was a software issue so i got busy reinstalling windows/drivers etc. But after a month or so of this issue, i took the readings: Phase-Neutral= 230 V Phase-Earth= 398V-400V (should be close to Phase-Neutral voltage) Neutral-Earth= 210 V (should be less than 2V-3V) Voltages(Neutral-Earth) were like this for couple of days and got lower after an outage which i think because the power company was working to fix something. Now the voltages on Neutral conductor are not dangerously high as they were before. But i am not giving it much attention because it could be linked to whatever deep is wrong in electricity. Now Neutral to Earth voltage varies for me with each day from 15V to 80V which is still high. This suggest that something is still wrong although it's not as worse as it was before.

    Although i am not sure that high neutral voltage caused it for me as i had several other power quality issues when i moved to this house. Half of which i don't even know as it'll require Oscilloscope and other very costly equipment. My advice to people with case 2 here is to perform this test on the same outlet you plug in your PC. But this test will require earth/ground connection in your outlet and also a Multimeter. Hire an electrician if you find it hard: You can buy a Digital Multimeter (DMM). Just a general test. Be careful though don't touch any metal parts while leads are in. You can watch some guides on how to use multimeter. Also be careful, only plug probes in marking V and comm not in A and comm on DMM. As V is for measuring Voltage and A is for measuring current. Method for measuring current is different. So never put probe in A on multimeter. If you do this will happen as in this video: What you are looking for are these 3 AC Voltage readings: Phase-Neutral= Phase-Earth= Neutral-Earth=

    IMO whatever is causing this issue. Have a high chance that it's damaging components. I am afraid if that's the case then going to a new place might not fix your PC. Something must be getting weak/damaged in case 2 (maybe capacitors in psu or mobo or monitor etc).

    Yeah although we don't have perfect evidence that we have 2 distinct cases. But after reading many posts on both forums. It is better if we differentiate to minimise confusion. Case 1: Issues only in games Case 2: Issues in games as well as outside of games (all the way to bios logo in extreme situations) You are right it's affecting my eyesight too.

    You are right ground fault can cause serious issues. Although it's a good practice to check for ground fault too. I think what we (people with case 2) are dealing with is something else. I am saying that because i have a proper ground and i have tested it. On the other hand, there are other issues present like high neutral voltage etc which i have mentioned before. Further analysis would require someone with equipment (oscilloscopes, etc).

    You can use this video by Linus as a reference on how to test power consumption: I recommend kill-a-watt meter to keep an eye on voltage,power consumption, etc. It's not going to tell you what's deep is wrong in Electricity. Although a good test would be to perform same test at another place and compare results.

    Cheap UPS usually output square wave or modified sine wave instead of pure sine wave. Although this square wave is bad but can't be as much devastating as harmonics or other issues in power. Also these cheap UPS sometimes have their neutral tied with the neutral of the power coming to your house and also bypass the phase voltage when it's available. Hence they don't provide isolation from whatever bad coming in from supply side.

    I'll buy one after moving to another house. First i want to check if the issues are only in this house or they are specific to this transformer/neighbours.
