Hello, I have assembled a PC 2 days ago and everything is working except for the graphics card. It is acting up...
It's the MSI R9 270x Gaming 2G
AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
- The drivers from the MSI website.
- AMD Catalyst 13.12
- AMD Catalyst 14.3 Beta
Windows 7 64 bit with all the latest updates.
Whenever I play a game for a while and sometimes even pretty quickly I get these "blocky: spots on my display. I have a YouTube video that shows the specific glitch:
At first I only noticed these in TrackMania 2, resulting into a BSOD once. Then after playing Just Cause 2 for about 15 minutes it also occured in there.
I have ran a couple of benchmarks to check if there are temperature issues. During the Valley Benchmark in 1920x1200 and on Extreme HD the heat goes up to about 65 degrees Celsius but never goes further than that. I noticed during the 2nd half of the benchmark that there was a flashing white square at the bottom of my display.
Today I ran the MSI Kombustor "Fur" Benchmark. This would drive the temperature up to about 70-75 degrees and after it reached 60 degrees it started showing these same blocky glitches on my desktop.
