    Hey guys. Just received a pair of 290X cards from a seller on OCAU, I previously had 2 x 280X cards.

    Have installed one of the 290X's into my system (didn't uninstall or reinstall drivers though).

    4790K stock clocks
    ASUS Maximus VII Hero
    2 x 8gb Corsair 2400Mhz

    I was playing BF4 last night on stock clocks voltage etc when I got the following BSOD - "page fault in non paged area dxgmms1.sys"

    I rebooted and was all good and played some CS, then afterwards just in Windows got some small blue specks and then small yellow specks on the screen... I didn't have any artifacting during either game either...?

    Sound like drivers issue or something else? Potentially ram (might be running at 1.5V instead of 1.65V ?)

    I work away so suggestions welcome for me to try out on the weekend...

    Might be the voltage on your system ram. they running at 2400mhz? 1.5v might not be enough.

    I have a feeling they will be at 1.5V.

    That said, would this only start being a problem after moving from 280x to 290x? (The 290x is a 4gb card though as opposed to 3gb I guess?)

    You definitely should have done a driver reinstall.

    Upped the system RAM to 1.65V sorted one issue. Clean installed a few different drivers as well... Issues persist.

    Am now getting blue lines etc in the screens (across all three) and artifacting etc in Windows under no load or load, doesn't matter... Really crazy. Blue lines also appear in BIOS and POST (randomly) so it is not a driver issue.
    Upped the voltage on the card as well to try and help it to 1350mV. No love :(
    See pic for an example.

    Card is dead....?

    Ehhhh... Looks like that gpu is already dying.

    Think you might have gotten a shifty deal.
    Artifacts are #1 symptoms of dying GPU's.

    Pull both cards out then test individually. One of them has either bad vram or a damaged PCB.
