5 month old 3070ti all of a sudden artifacting and producing weird black screens in gaming. RMA worthy??

Hi guys,

Built a PC for a friend a few months back who had a few small issues which seem to be very sporadic but couldn't pin point the issue back then as it was a very hit and miss problem. But this last week he's saying every time he plays Fortnite or Warzone he's getting huge graphical bugs. We've reinstalled drivers and game multiple times, checked all other drivers and firmware for bios all up to date but this issue seems to be getting more of a common occurrence now. Nothing is overclocked in his system as he's not interested in that being a console gamer moving to PC for the first time. I'm about to get hold of the guys tomorrow enquiring about a RMA process on the GPU but wanted to know your thoughts, would you say this was some sort of GPU error??

just running the card at stock shouldn't overheat though. Its his first pc so everything was set for no fuss absolute stability. MSIAB was even installed with a slightly more aggressive fan profile too.

Will get in touch with the team tomorrow and look to get it sent back anyway.
