Weird artifacting issue on 280x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I just sold my old 280x to a friend who is building a new PC. I tested the GPU on my system before I sold it to him, and it was working without issue.

After he put it into his new rig and started playing it worked fine for like a couple of minutes, but then he starts getting weird black artifacts on his screen. It's strange because when he first launches a game it works fine for a while but after some time it starts happening. It can take anywhere from like 2 minutes to 20 minutes to start happening, and sometimes it doesn't happen at all.

Any ideas?

Or damage to the pci-e port?

But surely that would mean that he would be experiencing the issue all the time?

Are the drivers up-to-date?
