    I'm now in a horror stage of RMA with ASUS, where my artifacting card has been after 45 days replaced with a card that is a complete mashup of used parts, junk, damaged and can't be used due to the damage, practically DOA.
    So far ASUS RMA is one of the worst I have seen. Slow as hell and when they do send you something back that they do not manufacture anymore they mash something up from used parts to brush you off.
    It's gonna be a 2nd RMA and who knows how long wait again.


    Even i sent my card for RMA, now I am scared....

    Issues like these will definetly prevent me to buy ASUS components in future.......

    update: so I got a r9 290 in exchange for r9 280x, I tried few games on it like Dragon age Inquisition .... To my surprise temps were above 90 degrees Celsius after like 4-5 minutes of gaming, I had to turn off the game so as to avoid any damage to card.... Is this normal temps for the card? I opened the case also...

    Cool, that seemed pretty quick !

    Yeah it's normal for the r9 290 to run that hot, to keep it is cool as possible crank the fan to 100% then start your game, it's what I would do.

    Hey thanks for reply, those temprature are using AMD's stock cooling solution, here we are using Asus's Direct CU 2 cooling solution.... how the hell its getting so hot within minutes of gameplay. I am talking about 2-4 minutes.... Also it idles at 45 degrees, I mean I have an i7 3770k which goes max that much during games.... This is gonna affect my other components in my system also by raising overall temps.........

    Also did I mention that the case is open, its ridiculous that an aftermarket cooling solution would giver higher temps than the stock......

    Hi.

    I have recently found this thread. I have had the card for a long time and I didn't have any issues with many games or the artifacts appeared after several hours playing and always I had thought that the problem was about other components. But this last Christmas I changed lot of components but this card and, after that, I started playing some games that have this issue in a short time like Just Cause 3 or Farcry Primal. In fact, Just Cause game becomes unplayable in a short time and I have to restart it. For this reason I have started to search information about this problem and fortunately I found this thread and a lot of people in my same situation and I would like to ask:

    1. Does anyone have some type of tip to fix the artifacts problem?
    2. As the issue is a well-know problem of this card, have we got the posibility of RMA the card although the legal warranty is gone?

    Best regards.

    Hi there,

    Unfortunately if the warranty is up then there's nothing that can be done. Have you previously RMA'd this card before for this same issue? If you have then you might be able to use that as a special case reason and can try contacting support to request for another RMA.

    You can try lowering the memory clock using GPU Tweak (check the product support page for your product to see which version is compatible with your card).

    Best Regards,
    Bahz
