Indeed but it worked without problems. It is impossible to install the GPU to slot 3 and 4 because of free space

The system is operating for 5 hours without problem at PCIe slot 1.
If artifacts reappear, i will open the GPU to install the new thermal compound.

Yesterday i went to sleep, so i turned off the pc. I suppose after 10 hours it is cold enough
Anyways, i power it up today and artifacts reappear. I wait it to boot while displaying artifacts, and when it boots windows it restarts by itself. Next, it boots normally without artifacts. Tiil now (10 minutes after) i have no problems...

I think it is not a temperature problem, as it should not draw artifacts cause i let it cool overnight. Reasonably PCIe slot 1 may have the problem, there comes something else in my mind.

I have the thermal compound right at my hands, should i change the GPU's compound, or it is purposeless?

The artifacts appear more and more often. Gonna change permanently to another PCIe slot to try it out. I hope it's not the GPU's fault.

Just changed the GPU from PCIe slot 1 to PCIe slot 3. Works fine till now. So i suppose it was motherboard's fault at PCIe slot 1?




PS: I hope i won't have temperature problems because of free space below of the GPU fans?!?!

Yea, thats what I had asked you to do before. Just keep track of the temps and it should be fine down in that slot.

Also with the pics I now see an issue. The CPU heat sink must have been right up to the GPU in PCIe1. That could have been pushing heat onto the GPU.

Hi, i powered again the PC, no problem at all

Before (when the GPU was at PCIe slot 1), i had no temperature problems, despite the close distance of CPU fan and GPU. Maybe because the plenty of free space on the other side (the 3 fan side).


PS: I will mark the topic as solved temporarily.

Hello, it has been a long time since my last post :P, i forgot to update the thread.
Eventually, the GPU had the problem. So i returned it to the seller and according to the warrranty, the card was replaced with ASUS EAH6970 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 2GB PCI-E RETAIL - at no extra cost, which is working perfectly till now
