Asus GTX 1060 6gb artifacts

Been having some strange artifact issues lately with my 1060, I bought it 1 year ago new when I built my rig, I've done a bit of OC with afterburner with success in a lot of games seeing in some cases a 5 - 10 fps boost,

As of lately, I've been noticing green squares, sometimes flickers appear on screen every few minutes when playing some games, mostly with WOT.


Originally I thought I was maybe just pushing the OC too much, so I tried again with default clock and still having the issues, I game in 1080p, 1440p and in some games, I can even get away with 4k on lower settings with 60+ fps. I see artifacts no matter the resolution though. Is my GPU deteriorating? I always monitor temps and loads and the most I've run my GPU at is around the 80C mark for about an hour, usually around the 60C mark during normal load.

if you're seeing artifacts then most likely the memory is going bad. You will need to RMA the card at this point since its only 1 year old and should still be under warranty.
