Any updates on what you did with regards to this issue?

I'm experiencing the same thing and am just in the process of RMA'ing my R9 270X.

On a related note, is anyone able to tell me what happens if Overclockers fail to replicate the artifacts at their end? Is the card simply returned and you lose the delivery fees incurred during the process?
