I bought ASUS R9 280X DC2T (not V2) and i can see artifacts, so far in Heaven Benchmark, Wolfenstein and Far Cry 3, Thief (Mantle) seems fine.

Temps are fine, 70C so far

OCCT showd no errors...

Some say that ASUS clocked HYNIX memory too far and mem chips are not even cooled.

Last R9 270x DC2T worked fine

Is there more stress tests that i should run to test VRAM ?

CPU - FX8350 - 4.5Ghz

PSU  - Corsair AX860i

Catalyst 14.4

Here are two pictures:

Yesterday it was 30C outside, today it is 2C outside so the room temp is not so hot and i saw less artifacts but still...seems broken from factory

2. http://www.upload.ee/image/4075485/AF_-_01.jpg

OCCT showed errors after 1 minute

I also read that ASUS R9 280x DC2T is doomed , memory is overclocked and not cooled (some mem chips anyway) (ASUS already launched V2 with lower mem speed!?!)

Mayby i can return it, and get R9 290 DC2 for extra money...
