5PTSLOW I would call customer service and escalate to a manager if possible, explain your situation and see if they can take care of the freight since this is now the 3rd or 4th card.
WeztmarchYes, and to be fair and polite, I admitted it was a possibility. I actually do not believe it is my monitor, but I'm open to ideas. I never had issues with my 2080 FTW3 or my GTX 1070 TI. Also, my first 2080 TI had a frozen core clock of 1350Mhz, which I'm quite confident had nothing to do with the monitor. So far only 2080 TI cards have given me issues in this rig. Update: Currently the issue seems to be restricted to the game Apex Legends. It's a brief flicker every once in a while. Could be a bug, too. I don't see artifacts now unless I overclock the memory.
WeztmarchThings just took a turn for the worse. Before I only saw tiny artifacts occasionally in one game and Firestrike. I played Witcher 3 for a little while before my screen locked up with artifacts and then my PC restarted itself. Bloody hell.http://imgur.com/gallery/6RVNQtS
WeztmarchSeriously dude? My temps are fine, the card is running stock, and I just fresh installed drivers. I'll just wait for EVGA's response
WeztmarchAll I'm saying is that I don't agree and I'll wait to hear what a tech or CS rep says.
WeztmarchIt wasn't intended to be offensive. Sorry. We just have a difference of opinion. I'm not interested in playing around with drivers trying to rig a hotfix unless I'm sure it's not hardware. I've never viewed something like a hard lockup with artifacts as mild. I used the same drivers for the same model card without issues of this severity.
WeztmarchAnyways, fingers crossed maybe third time's a charm! I don't want another Micron GDDR6 card because my first two were Samsung and they overclocked much higher. I didn't pay a several hundred dollar premium for a custom PCB over the competition's reference PCB (it IS marketed for its overclocking capabilities, after all) just to receive something not significantly better than a reference model, but that will happen. I don't believe this is EVGA or any Nvidia partner's fault of course. Even with the silicon lottery in mind this generation of Nvidia GPUs can be very disappointing.
xblackvalorxQuestion worth asking, are you using two individual pcie power cables or using a single cable with two 8pins?
