Most, if not all, of my games artifact while playing. It seems like it happens mostly when a video is open in a browser (youtube, netflix). I know I could always just close all the windows, but: 1. It shouldn't happen to begin with, 2. Some games artifact regardless of what's open. League of Legends artifacts to unplayable levels even when everything else is closed.

 

These are the idling temps and my Dxdiag specs. Is anything out of the ordinary?fans.png

Overheating and a bad power supply are common causes of artifacts, a bad PSU can also cause overheating if it is putting out too much voltage.

 

What is the brand and model name or number of your PSU.

Has the computer ever been overclocked in any way.

 

One of the +12V rails on your PSU is showing a low reading btw, see tolerance table below;

My PSU is a Tagan BZ Series 700W 

Also, I don't know if it matters, but it's mounted on the bottom of the case, rather than the top (my case is weird like that).

My apologies for the late reply alienduck2, I neglected to click the Follow this topic box and so did not receive notification of your reply  :(

 

Do you still require assistance.
