Yha, but Corsair only makes the 520, 650 and 1000 modular. So to be set for power and modular its the 1000hx.

hmmm but artifacts are a sign of a card dying as well right? My x800 xl on my old system was getting a lot of artifacts and it was at stock settings and most likely overheating badly cause I was running it at 1680x1050 resolution with high settings in CS Source.

So if you don't run a floppy, or 2 vid cards or 4 drives.... you've got 6 extra cables clogging the airflow.

If you OC your CPU too much on stock voltage it will make errors and crash out....that's not "bad" for the CPU or killing it in any way, it just needs more voltage to be stable at that clock.

Similarly, the GPU is just artifacting (making errors)...so it's just unstable. This lack of stability may be due to not enough voltage for that clock, or it could be a sign of dead VRAM or GPU.

...but just because you are getting artifacts does not mean the GPU is necessarily dead or dying (unless you are getting them at stock clocks and volts, obviously that ain't right!)
