980ti issues, pretty sure hardware is failing.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a 980ti that, depending on the game, causes some problems. Sometimes, the screen will flicker black as if there is a bad connection, and other times there will be images that look like artifacts or the game will crash. In a couple of instances my PC has hard-locked. In a lot of games, I can use it without any problems.

 

I believe it is outside of the warranty period (I checked a while back, will re-check soon), and luckily I have a 2070 I can use in the meantime. I guess my main question is - are these typical signs of GPU failure? Will it continue to get worse with time? Can it be remedied in some way? It's EVGA, I haven't contacted to see what an RMA would cost, or if it would be possible. If not, does a market exist for failing GPUs?

 

Thanks guys.

Did you oc the card? If so you may want to drop down oc and see if this helps.

And yes you still can sell dead cards but don’t expect much money for it.

I had it OC'd for some time, but it wasn't overclocked when I had the issues happening. Just wondering what my options are, I haven't dealt with this problem before.
