Hey folks,

Long time lurker here at BC, I am sadly now forced to make an account and ask for advice regarding my computer

Essentially over the last few days I have encountered some pretty serious issues regarding my computer freezing and displaying bizarre artifacts or pixel bleeds. Included is a photo of what I see when this occurs.

This happened when I play a game and occasionally when I watch a video. Now however it seems to just happen randomly and even on start up.

Could this be a Mobo issue? Or is it more likely a GPU death. I've even been told it could be a psu error.


My temps are normal.

Specs as followed:

i7 2600k cpu
Gtx 580 gpu
8gb vengeance ram
Sabertooth p67 mobo
Hiper psu (supposedly 815w, more likely half that)

Oh and Windows 10 with latest drivers

Looks like a failing graphics card to me.

Hi, Gauloises, Welcome to BC!


Could you install download Speccy and post a snapshot of your system hardware? Speccy


After starting Speccy let it gather information, when finished go to file and publish a snapshot. Post that link here in your thread.
