    My X850 Pro is showing artifacts and I have been getting system reboots does this look like a dying card or could it be a driver problem?

    :twitch: looks like the mem is giving up ..is it OCed? if so try setting it back to stock ...or it could be a heat issue but not likely.. you could try getting some more ari flow across the mem chips [any ram sinks?] Drivers??? unlikle but you could try fresh install prob won't help .. but hey :wtf:

    I had it set to clock at 560/560 in 3D and 500/500 in 2D.When I got it 6 months ago I tested it with the ATI tool and the core would go to around 605 before it had artifacts and the memory would go to 610 before it got them.It's has a Arctic Cooling ATI Silencer 5 rev.2 and only go's to between 50c to 55c under load.I'm running Omega 3.8.252 drivers and the OS was freshly installed within the last 3 months.I blow out the dust regularly so the case is clean and I have 3 120mm case fans.Things have been running fine until the last week or so then I started to get reboots and last night the artifacts showed up.

    Auto updates from OS may have changed mobo drives, if so roll them back to previous.

    I have automatic updates turned off so that wont happen.I uninstalled drivers and ran Driver Cleaner Pro and still have artifacts with the default windows driver.When I went into safe mode to run the cleaner it had ( Press esc to cancel loading SPTD.sys ) highlighted at the bottom of the screen when it loaded the drivers.Never noticed that before.

    I got this card from the ATI Clearence Store about 6 months ago and it had a 1 year warranty so I guess I'll put the stock cooler back on and RMA it.Never RMA'ed with ATI before do you know how they are?
