Hey all, yesterday I experienced some tearing during gaming, I shrugged it off as my OCs. Today from a cold boot, the tearing is awful, and occurs even at idle. I disabled ALL OCs, and reseated my RAM and GPU, just to see if it would make a difference. (hint: It didn't.) I could really use some help here. Thanks :)

 

ASUS M5A99X EVO (revision 1, just disabled EPU and TPU in this scenario)

FX 4100 @ 3.6GHz

16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600

120GB OCZ Vertex4 SSD

XFX Radeon 6870 1gb single fan edition

corsair TX550W PSU

 

I have the latest, non beta catalyst control center and drivers. I also use MSI Afterburner, but for this scenario, i have it disabled. Thanks.

I wouldn't put it past myself, although it just decided to quit working properly without any major overclock applied, i've definitely stressed it harder. but what else could cause Extending Displays to cause tearing

What connection method are you connecting your second monitor with?

sometimes if you are using two totally different connections (a DVI and a VGA) you will get tearing on one, this doesnt account for its sudden start on the tearing, but maybe it was an update issue with the driver or something.

Main is on a DVI, secondary is an HDMI. no adapters, high quality cables(i know thats not important with digital, but i definitely didn't get the dollar store standard ones.)

Can you swap the cables to see if the problem moves?
