Hi,
Recently my gpu started showing artifacts when in game after 10-15min of gameplay, standing idle or having something intense happening on the screen and reaching 100% of GPU usage, it doesnt matter, game crashes and after ~20sec it brings the game back up. Temps are around 70-75 C.
I tried using other drivers from May and January of this year (466.47 and 460.89), that didn't help. Lowering the resolution from 1440p to 1080p or disconnecting monitors just to have one on, didn't help.
I did try another GPU in my system and artifacts didn't occur. As well I tested my RAM and it was still happening.
Switching to a new HDMI and DP cable didnt help as well.
My rig: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 6600 GPU: MSI 1060 6gb MB: MSI X570-A

Is there something else i can try and test and maybe change to maybe fix this? I really don't want to buy a new GPU as they are really expansive.

I fixed the issue.
When I opened the GPU, there was literally no thermal paste and thats why it was acting like that.
Somehow, 75C is overheating for 1060 :D
