MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge Wifi
500w EVGA Psu

This is not a new issue, but I finally decided to seek help. In random games, at random points (but it seems to happen more the longer I play), the game will start making the artifacts in the video linked. The artifact looks the same in every game, with the bright points of random color, but sometimes some games do different things. I'm not really if its just my GPU dying or if there's an underlying issue.
I have updated all my drivers for pretty much everything.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you!

Is your GPU overclocked? If yes, go back to stock settings. You may want to try undervolting your GPU too.
its the super clocked version from evga, so I think its overclocked by default? Im not 100% sure how that works, but would I just go in my bios and manually lower my voltage and mhz?

Artifacting, especially after longer periods of use, is more likely to be an overheated gpu, most normally the vram.

Because the only readable temp sensor in in the processor itself, often times vrm/vram temps will go unnoticed and can exceed the gpu temps significantly.

I'd start by checking gpu temp when the artifacts are most common, but the main concern would be gpu cooling. If the card has sub-optimal airflow or is sitting in a hot-spot in the case, the longer its used, the hotter it gets.

This can happen at anytime since case cooling at idle is minimal airflow or during gaming when airflow is better but the card is having enough power to over-compensate that.

If using fanless mode, I'd turn that off and allow the gpu fans to use the default fan curves.

Can also happen if one of the on board fans is not functioning properly.

So I have a lian li o11, so i can put a fan directly under my gpu, do you think that would help?
