    Hi all

    well, i think ive fried my gfx card - i had a (i think) coolermaster heatsink heatpipe combo - problem is i didnt plug the fan into the motherboard. so now i have little artifacts on my display :( any ideas of how i can fix this? or is it a lost cause?

    Reduce core and memory clock speeds down about 10mhz each and see if that helps. :)

    it wasnt even oc'd i had just done a reinstall due to a dead mobo (been a bad week for PCs!)

    will try that tho. i know b4 when ive had artifacts due to ocing nvidia cards they just disappear on reboot.
