Re: Help! Flickering textures and artifacts with brand new 6600GT
if its overheating due to poor contact with the heatsink, i wouldnt even bother messing with it tbh. i would just RMA it. if you try to mess with it yourself, they could say that you voided the warranty and youd be stuck with a dead card.
id try better airflow first. try to force some air in there and see if you can get it to cool down. if you can and the card cools down and no arti's, problem solved. if you still have arti's when its cool. try a new PSU. if you get arti's then, then its time to RMA. but dont mess with the card, or theyll try and blame the problems on you.
