Hi all. I took my trusty reliable GTX 980 out of my old i7-3770k build and popped it into my new Ryzen 3700x build and on the first run of windows there was a sudden flash on the screen and now it artifacts like crazy. I popped it back into the old build and it still does it. It doesn't artifact until windows loads. I have been studying heat guns and throwaway toaster ovens but I don't know if there is any hope for this card. I ended up buying a 2070 Super for the Ryzen build but I'd love to salvage the 980 for other uses if possible. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations or advice?
