Default Furmark GTS450 1GB OC'd - Pink & Green Fur?

Hi Guys,

I've been running Furmark for a while, and I'm seeing green and pink fur on one small specific area, anyone know if that indicates the overclock is unstable? because I'm not seeing any actual artifacting, I've played Crysis 2 for about an hour, ran it multiple times with no issue, also ran 3DMark 11 looping for about 30min without any issues either..

The Pink and Green don't show up right away, maybe after 30min, and Temps don't reach higher then 72C with Furmark..

Heres a Screenshot of What I mean..

Hope you guys can shed some light, thanks!

That would indeed be an unstable overclock. But fur mark stresses beyond what most games would load on a card so.. Ymmv

Yep sounds like it. My guess could be that his vRam chips are heating up and are on the verge of crapping out at whatever the overclock is at. Take a look at link in my signature, as I'm assuming OP has fan profile set to default.
