Hey Carbiezzz

Got a Gigabyte vega 56 OC thats messing me around and i wanna RMA it but I dont have the POP and i know it still has warranty left. Called rectron and they said it aint with them.

Any other places i can try?

Serial number of the card is SN180141050066

Many thanks in advance

If this works I may ask to do the same with the same card, trying to sort it but no luck so far.

Joshmeister do you only provide them with the SN to check if it was bought through them?

and what have you tried to resolve the driver issue so far? I've only gone with adrenaline latest update install and the 17.1.whatever driver. Would putting another bios be worth a try and how do you find out what BIOS range the card is in (F1-9) / (F10-19) / (F20-29)

Yep just the SN. The 17.1.1 driver works as well with me, any other driver does not work. I have done a bios flash as well and still the same issue

17.1.1 seems more stable with me but doesn't work, I've had BSOD and Blackscreen/100% fans. No BSODs with 17.1 but blackscreens with benching l, in Siege it seems to be stable and I haven't had a crash yet on 17.1 for gaming. Witcher also crashed during certain scenes/loads

Yeah I get the Black screen 100 percent fan ramp up when using any driver other than 17.1.1

Seems like it's a huge screw up for this specific Gigabyte model. What a pain....

Yeah it's a shame since they perform so nicely otherwise, I enjoy using it and having a silent system for once😅
