I have been exeperincing two different issues with my new setup that I believe are both video card/driver related.
This happens about twice a week when I leave a web browser (chrome) open on my desktop, as you see from the attached image there is heavy artifacting on the graphics and text in the web browser window, once this happens if I try to open CCC the driver will crash and recover.
This does not occur when I'm activily using my computer, It's only when I return to it after it's been idle for sometime...
My computer is on High Performance mode and does not goto sleep or hibernate, However my monitor is set to sleep after 15 minutes and that brings me to the 2nd issue.
About 1 out of 5 times when the monitor tries to goto sleep it will go black but keep the backlight on and show a mouse cursor in the centerof the screen.
Also I tested this video card in my old X58 computer for a month before I built my new setup and although there was no video corruption issues the powersaving issue with the monitor was still happening... And I know it's not the monitor becuase my old 4850 video card shut it down 100% of the time for the past 4 years!
