Are my new AMD R9 200 series gfx card dying ? (4 months old)

Yesterday when I was playing BF4 i suddenly got a GOSD ?
Gray Screen Explained (5xxx Series) *Updated w/ Solution*
(my card is not overclocked in any way)
And all I could do was to hard reboot my pc.

So I was playing wow, today and this happened to me.

Thanks in advance

Hi Jim,
To my eyes it looks like memory corruption on the graphics cards. I would run some video card tests.

Thank you for the reply Indianatone.

I found this program called FurMark, is that ok to test my card with?

Yes that will work very nicely. From the shots of your game some parts of the image were corrupted yet information for the POV control panel was fine. Seems to me the only thing that can cuase this would either be Graphics card memory of system memory. You could also try running memtest overnight to see if there are any errors in the RAM.

MemTest86 - Offical Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool

Take your time and don't jump to conclusions. It could even have been just one of those things unless it happens all the time.

Thanks for the reply again, I will run the RAM test when i go to bed

When i try to run FurMark I get this warning.



Should I just run it anyway ?

Yes, that is their you can't blame us if you fry your PC. Do keep an eye on things whilst running the stress test.If you get corrution of the fur ball you'll see it right away.

Any time you run any stress test, watch the temps and stop the test if temps get too high. Stress tests are made to create high stress which causes very high temps. So, watch temps closely. Temps will rise very high very fast, which is normal and most cards will level out at a certain temp. The same goes for a CPU test with Prime95 but not so much with memtest86+.

which model 290 is that? 1400 on the ram is a massive oc over stock. Also 3dmark is a far better tool to use as the drivers will throttle down furmark

Edit- Can also try a newer driver set. I've been running 14.8 whql drivers without issue (they list them only for apu's but they install and run fine for all cards). There is also a 14.7 beta3 set

It is an R9 270x, alrigt, getting 3Dmark, I tested with the Memtest86 it had no errors so far, but I candled the test in the end after 14 hours of testing.
