weird screen artifacts or tearing? sli gtx 670

Recommended Posts

hi guys long time without posting so  my gtx  670 sli has been working good except that from some weeks now i have strange artifacts kind of a green and purple bar  on the left side of the  desktop  from time to time they come and go so i was kind of afraid that this was one of my cards that had problems  the artifacts dissapear when i reboot my pc so  i thought that i printscreen this issue so you guys could help me but after i did it i rebooted my computer so i could see the images  i found that  the images look like if everything is fine with my desktop  no strange artifacts nothing  i did alot of printscreens and not even one with the issue so guys could this be my monitor  its an old hans.g 27'' that i bought back in 2008 or my cable? or maybe a pcie bad slot? when i have the issue next time i will take pics with my phone so you guys can see this issue  thank you in advance

Does the issue appear when using only one 670? Is the bar solid all the way down or scattered? How long is the PC on before they appear?

Sounds like it may be a heat issue... Have you checked the GPU temps when the bars appear? And because the lines are a hardware issue they will not show on screenshots.

Have you tried using one GTX 670 to see if the streaks appear?

+1

I'd try and use each one alone for a decent period of time, and at different loads. One of your cards, whether it be the master or host, may be failing. (or maybe even a bad PCI-E slot or SLI bridge, if both cards ending up being fine)

Yeah, I'd try each card on its own for a couple days and see if the problem continues with one or both of them before we try and think of more causes.
