Hi,
I think my GPU just died.
My GPU- EVGA 1070 FE.
I normally run it unclocked.
I turn EVGA Precision on only for The Witcher 3 and GTA V (+200gpu, +500mem).
The temps while playing were around 60'-70'C.
I was playing RE7 on the highest settings 1080p.
The time I was playing it, EVGA Precision was turned off so it was unclocked.
After some time the screen turned into something like this but much more intense, the graphical artifacts surrounded in game objects, further objects turned into white background:

I have tried the GPU on another system, same issue.
It displays a system startup occasionally while DVI is connected to the GPU but after like 15 seconds the graphical artifacts shows up and system crashes on both systems. Other graphics cards work without any issues on my system.
I have found an article about memory issues, they recommend to install new BIOS update. I can't do it because my system doesn't want to load while the GPU is connected.
Should I contact EVGA Tech support and request for replacement?
Many thanks

Thanks guys
I just sent the request for the RMA ticket.
It looks like it's not the fastest process :-/
Do you have any experience with EVGAs RMA? Is it possible to request a different product with the same value?

Best customer support ever!

Don't know about the different product. Worth asking anyway...
