    So i made a thread some month ago that my 290 was always getting really hot.
    I made a lot of change to help this card, i bought a phanteks enthoo tempered Glass, two corsair fan extrême performance ( and a new motherboad on am4 ( and a ryzen and ddr4 but this is another story haha ) to put my soundcard more away from the GPU to get a better air cooling).

    So Yesterday , i put on the computer , and after 30s on the movie i was watching , i got a lot of artefact and my computer shut down.
    I tried another movie , same. I launch à game to check my computer and at the boot screen of the game, the.gpu just died haha

    Now it's like this : https://youtu.be/-ocEBUbalFA

    I can't even go to windows , i had to install my old 6950.
    Do you think the GPU Can be repair ? ( I m going to wait Vega 56 i think )

    Take all the cooler off and any stickers heat an oven to 200c .. place the card on a baking tray with tin foil using bits of foil to make 4 balls to raise the card of the tray,, leave in for 10 mins then take out and let the card cool at room temps for like 30 mins, you'll need some decent thermal paste too .. rebuild the card and I bet it works again

    I fixed mine HD7870 2 weeks ago by baking, so you can try also.

    By any chance are you water cooling?

    I had almost exactly the same experience when I forgot to plug my pump in.
    The PC ran fine all evening just browsing the web and was left on all night.
    Next day I played a movie and the PC blue screened after about 15 minutes.
    Tried again and it crashed sooner.
    Thats when I had my dur moment and realised the CPU was a bit warm.


    Shutting your PC down for while to change cards may have let it cool enough to get basic function back.

    Thanks you, i m going to try that when i have time!
    It's air cooling for the cpu , i have a 1600x with a be quiet pure rock.
    The temp was always good on this CPU . But before the first crash i got a message from AMD that wattman reset my oc setting because there IS an issue but i didn't oc the GPU haha


    Haha yeah , it's a good excuse to change GPU haha

    It's most likely the Vram that is causing those artifacts.

    Telling the guy to bake his card...without warning him about the effects on his oven? Right...

    From overclockers.com;

    "No-one should attempt this in a household oven, for various reasons:

    1. Both lead and tin are volatile when heated. Specifically, this means that lead oxide and other dangerous chemicals are emitted when lead is heated.

    See:
    http://www.sentryair.com/solder fume.htm

    2. The fluxes used in production of modern electronics are designed to remove oxides very, very efficiently. They are NOT designed to be biocompatible. Small amounts of residue may still be on the board.

    3. Boards may contain parts which will melt at the reflow temperature. These components are generally through-hole and added as a separate step.

    So, basically, once you have completed this operation and (possibly) fixed your video card, BUY A NEW OVEN.

    The other option is to buy a cheap toaster oven and use it only for reflowing – however, that’s cost prohibitive."

    Yeah i saw this when i was looking for it. I m not going to bake it. I m going to try some others solution. I m going to check to repair it and giving it to my brother since he only have a 7870xt.
    I bought a 1080 ti since i didn't really like the Vega GPU.

    Good for you. You need to be careful with some "advice", even if it works.
