    I had a 780 Classified that produced artifacts with minor OC's that my second Classified handled w/o issue. Evga accepted the RMA w/o question and cross-shipped another card. It definitely depends on the situation ....

    It isn't, that's 'the target oc'

    I'll wait for a "normal" non founders edition, no rush... I'm good to go with my 980ti

    That just means your overclock is too high... that does NOT justify a RMA unless it artifacts at default clocks too.

    I'm just asking since I've never had artifacts on core OC before, only on memory. And my OC is not high, it's low. Just compare it to any other HW review or people in this thread.

    What kind of artifacts? Squares ?

    How high did you clock ?

    I'm planning on selling my 780GTX and moving onto my i7 glorious integrated graphics.

    I haven't quite made up my mind on AMD or NVidia this round, might hold out
    until mid July before making my choice.

    RMA cause your oc isn't stable?

    Facepalm.

    I'm just wondering since when companies accept RMAs because of OC not working as expected... out of the box would be what I would care, everything beyond is the customer's problem and officially not supported (or allowed even?) but I'm not a graphics card board partner :)

    I was just surprised since I wouldn't be bold enough to try it :eyes:

    Right now I'm at +100 core which is somewhere between 2025-2050MHz depending on the game. For example DS3 clocks at 2050 since it's capped at 60FPS and therefore the GPU load is really low (~55%) but Witcher 3 is more intense and the clock stays at 2038 but can drop to 2025.

    I'll post a video later.

    Stop beeing an azz, I'm just discussing the topic here and of course I'm not going to RMA just like that. I'm just trying to assess if there is something wrong with the card since I've never experienced artifacts just by OCing the core!

    Everyone calm down :) Like I wrote above, I'm just discussing the topic :) If everyone but me has experience artifacts while OCing then sorry :p There is a first time for everything.

    I'm still trying to find an OC which doesn't show artifacts in any game but so far no luck :3eyes:

    Nothing wrong with asking questions mate, it's cool.

    I take it you have not artifacts at stock? How about running 2k on the core? Does it artifact?

    Na didn't mean to say you shouldn't, actually I felt inspired by it :D
    But it's unusual with older GPUs (as far as I encountered it and overclocking), usually there's some headroom to OC without artifacts, so I get why you're asking.

    Thanks :)

    I dont know yet, I'll do more testing tonight. First thing I did when I installed the card was to run a quick 1 min Heaven to see what the factory OC was. I dont remember what it was now but I think it was 1898MHz after throttle (from 1914 I belive).

    Next step is to decrease MSIAB OC to +90 which should put the clock to somewhere around 2013 area, I'll see how that works.

    Point is to get rid of the red dots and the black vertices (?)

    Really? :) I suppose it depends who you're asking at the store ;)

    Well I definitely learned something here. And also got a really bad sample (OC wise) :) But...this doesn't mean the card is slow, on the contrary it's pretty fast actually comparing to my old 980Ti (which will find a new home today). Playing Witcher 3 and seeing numbers like 100-110 FPS is magic and actually something I only got with 980Ti SLI. I had bad scaling with 980Ti SLI but funny how the 1080 performs like 980Ti SLI for me but with zero noise and heat. And this is why I'm happy with the card :)

    You should put a water AIO on it and you can add another +100 on the core. Like mine :banana:. Its all about the heat.

    That's the thing...what heat? :) I've never seen it above 72 degrees. I tried something the other day, fans at max and clock at 2101MHz. Temps dropped down to 55 degrees but I got a lot of artifacts.

    I dont want to waste 180 dollars to get AIO if it's still gonna artifact. I just think I got unlucky on the chip lottery :(

    Check this post (I actually quoted you there).

    Yeah, heat is not the problem here.
