View Full Version : XFX 7900gtx defective?

03-27-06, 05:51 AM
Hi guys,
I'm having somewhat of a hardware nightmare at the moment, first my New NEC 20" LCD went down within an hour of it being out of the box and now i'm having issues with the new XFX 7900gtx. I'm getting what I can only describe as noise (as in the grainy photoshop filter) on the desktop and also in games. It's hardly noticeable on the desktop but is quite distracting during Quake and Oblivion where the black areas are noisy/fuzzy/snowy. The clocks are the stock 665/1600 and the temps are fine, (38 idle) with good airflow. Any ideas? I'm leaning towards the memory overheating as opposed to the core.

Mnay Thanks

waiting for new driver may fix the problem

Is it possible for you to take a screen and post it?

I doubt it's a driver issue. My XFX 7900 stock is 675/1700 and I have no problems.

I can also oc it to 710/1760, no problems. Probably need to RMA it.
