Hey, so I have a problem with my MSI RX580 8GB Armor OC that seems to come and go randomly.
A few months back it was doing the same thing where it would have many jagged lines in games at the edges of buildings, grass, trees, staircases, rails etc. and the shadows would have a weird draw distance where it would sometimes disappear and reappear depending from what angle I look at it from.
The problem has disappeared randomly without me doing anything about it until yesterday, where the problem has reappeared after I took out the graphics card to change the thermal paste on it which lowered the temperatures during heavy load by 10+ degrees, maxing out at around 70-71. I have tried every trick in the book, tried undervolting, giving it more voltage, changing to a lower frequency, changing RAM settings, changing CPU settings (Overclock, undervolt, etc.) and also reinstalling the GPU driver and trying different versions, no impact at all.
I don't know what to try anymore to be honest, it is really annoying since pretty much all the edges especially railings are just flickering non stop even after I tried all types of anti aliasing methods, even using the radeon software anti-aliasing and yet still, doesn't change anything, I might as well leave it at with no anti-aliasing at all and it looks exactly the same.

Its artifacting, a hardware issue. But dont worry you can fix it, you can try and use the baking method. The baking method is a method that you cook your gpu, now you may think im crazy but it has worked for multiple people including me and this method has been around for years. So how it works is very interesting. Often gpus fail due to loosening solder joint, and to reconnect that solder joint youll need something that will make it hot for that solder joint to connect it again and an oven or a heat gun would be the solution to make it hot.
Heres some links that would help you out:

Hey, thank you for your answer, at the moment I think I will wait for a few more answers before I try to make dinner out of my graphics card and maybe accidentally completely break it. It is really weird that it's doing this, literally before I took it out of the PCIE slot to change its thermal paste it was working perfectly fine, just reaching around 80-81 degrees under heavy load which I wasn't too comfortable with, so I decided to repaste it and it did wonders since the old paste was very bad, but now I have this problem with the jagged lines around the edge of buildings and stuff.
