I would leave it until you get back.
Well, that'll be in 9 hours
I'll report back in 15 min

I don't mind at all but if you want to test the GPU now then fair enough but I recommend you do it again sometime in the future unless you find issues now.

Okay I had time to do a 30 min test, the max temp was 65 and it kept it at 65 during the rest of the test.

Were there any artifacts or other problems?
If not then it looks like your GPU is stable so we'll rule that out.

Right, can you uninstall your graphics drivers and roll back to 314.22



Also please remove all motherboard programs that aren't necessary like monitoring software and clean up software.
Careful you don't remove drivers or software that is important for your system to function properly.
If you are unsure about a program let us know.

Well, not 100% sure what a visual artifact is, but it generated some weird colorful patterns/stuff on my screen that moved. I just ran it and pressed ESC, there were not errors or crashes.
And why exactly do I need to roll all the way back to 314.22? The current version is 335.23 so it's a huge downgrade. Also, AFAIK that version doesn't contain NVIDIA GeForce Experience, and I'll prefer not playing around with uninstalling the drivers.
However there's a "Re-install driver" option in NVIDIA GeForce Experience, should I try that?

And I don't think this has much to do with my GPU, because the BSOD rarely happens when my GPU is under heavy load/playing high end games. I had some crashes a few months ago when playing I think BF4, but it has been stable with the never GPU drivers, which is another reason I prefer not to downgrade.

And I don't have any unnecessary motherboard programs, only keep the necessary program running, which is AI Suite, nothing else from my motherboard.

PS: Going to sleep now, wont be able to respond the next 10-15 hours.

Can you take a picture of your furmark running?
I'm starting to have doubts from what you described.

The reason we ask for such a huge downgrade is 314.22 is the last known Nvidia graphics driver version that has been so stable that it has not caused issues (That is if I remember correctly).

Is AI suite necessary for you?
That's one of those bundles that probably causes issues.
For testing purposes can you uninstall it?

Here's the screenshot (the weird stuff was moving):


And an important thing I forgot to write, I'm overclocking my cpu to 4,4GHz, which I sometimes use AI Suite for.
Before I uninstall it, is overclocking important for this case?

Furmark looks fine to me, when we say artifacts we generally mean image tears.

Yes! Please remove all overclocking from hardware, restore all hardware to default values.

Okay, what I'm gonna do is putting it on auto, if it happens again I'll restore it to the very default values
EDIT: Overclocking was the problem!
