Description

Mostly gaming/streaming/editing. A while ago I started building a new rig. It definitely needs some improvements looking at storage and sufficient airflow. (any advice could help and is appreciated).

But I've come across a big problem regarding gaming on this rig. Certain games are unplayable due to green dots in shadows and reflective parts, and constant flickering and texture glitches. For example in Battlefield 1, all VR games and Rainbow six Siege not even wanting to start up a game. I've been searching the internet for a solution but have not come across any good advices.

Anyone with any idea how to fix this problem?

Drivers but I'm sure you have checked that, otherwise under clock the card if its more stable RMA it you shouldn't get artefacts on stock speeds. Also try updating your motherboard bios it may not like your RAM it doesn't appear to be compatible with your motherboard after a quick search. Let us know if you have any luck.

Also set XMP profile for RAM in bios

I will try underclocking, if the games do run better when the card is underclocked I should RMA the card?

In fact I have the Crucial ballistix Tactical 2x8GB DDR4 3000, I don't know wheter this makes a difference but when I bought these sticks I found no incompatibilities between the mobo and RAM. (these Ram sticks cannot be found on this website)

The drivers will be checked again indeed. Triple checking isn't all that bad ;)

Thank you for your response! Any update will be posted here.

Yes if your card isnt running at advertised clocks you should RMA it, thus underclocking gives more stability and if the isue repeats itself its not the card. Update the MB if a newer version is out. GL

In regards to your problem I would suggest going to LinusTechTips forums.

Try not using the dedicated GPU and see if the problem persists. If it does, it may be your monitor. Try with a different one or take a print screen once you see the dots on the screen and see the image in another computer. If you see the dots, it may be something wrong with your build. If you don't see the dots, it's definitely your monitor.

Great build though!!

If the games won’t even start it’s unlikely the problem is with your monitor.

Quick and easy troubleshooting tips I would recommend: 1) reseating your RAM 2) clearing your CMOS

To be quite honest this issue sounds to be with your video card. I would recommend picking up a GTX 1060 at a local retailer and do a clean install on your video drivers using the GeForce Experience software after you’ve installed the 1060.

The 1060 should run many titles at 1080p using max settings. If you don’t experience the same artifacting and graphics related trouble then you’ve pinpointed your issue. Hopefully it’s not too late to exchange your 1080. I’d be willing to bet, if it’s a hardware issue, it’s with the GPU.

Best of luck man.
