Arrow Re: Asus GeforceFX 5600 VideoSuite (flicker and corruption)

Check your ASUS warranty, because this seems like a hardware failure. The difference between your DVI ports is likely that one of the TMDS transmitters has failed.

NVIDIA GPUs with dual DVI include an integrated transmitter and an external TMDS transmitter. Since the problem occurs when you're working the GPU harder, I strongly suspect the internal TMDS transmitter is failing.

If warranty service is unobtainable (ASUS and warranty don't go well together in my experience) and you don't want to replace the card, you can try to increase heat dissipation on the GPU with an aftermarket GPU cooler. You may also want to put a sink on the external TMDS transmitter. YMMV.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.
