dead gpu - random texture on screen


My GPU died in the middle of gameplay. I have no idea why. It happened once before and I got it repaired under warranty. Now I have the same issue again. I get random textures on the screen after few minutes of gameplay. Under normal load, everything works fine. I don't know if the GPU itself is defective or it is happening because of some other component in my CPU like PSU. I still have the warranty, I can get it fixed. But I want info form you guys to understand the exact reason for this failure so that I can avoid a similar issue in the future.



CPU : Intel i5 4460 @ 3.2GHz

RAM : 8GB DDR3 1866MHz

GPU : MSI GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti-4G-OCV1

PSU : Corsair VS450

If they fixed the issue and it worked for a little while, they probably did a lazy job. MSI is known for crap customer service.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)


How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Bake it in the oven, 5min 400ºF. It will work great for another 10min of gaming ;)






JK, this is actually a really bad idea.
