So, I built a PC in April last year ('17). Very Randomly I notice a flash of either pink or green lines in random patterns. (Sometimes the pattern
repeats). They only last for about a frame (very quick). Sometimes horizontal, sometimes vertical. Happens randomly like i said, while gaming, or
while doing nothing or watching tv. Sometimes days go by without it happening, and sometimes a couple times per night. (Just noticed it on 2nd
monitor for the first time). glitch seems to happen on one screen at a time. (is that a clue?)
2nd monitor is an asus 27" 1080p (hdmi). Main monitor is benq 4k 27" (display port).
GTX 1080 AG8 Rog Strix, z270e mobo, 7700k cpu.
32gb corsair ram, corsair ax760w power supply
Temps never get above 60 degrees C. (except for first benchmark ever and didn't have fan curves set and it went over 80)
Thought it was gpu overclock, and I uninstalled oc software and am now running at base clock (no help)
have had a few different drivers over the last year and believe the problem happened with each
can run benchmarks no problem, and never saw the glitch during a benchmark. (got better than 96% of all results on firestrike!)
Have searched for the same problem everywhere, and found only vaguely similar ones, not this exact issue.
Hopefully its a simple fix. Thanks in advance!
(wish i could get a screen grab, but they are so fast and random)
drivers and bios up to date
