Hello everyone!


I've been having some texture issues with Fallout 4. Some textures morph with other ones, some get glitched and look very strange....


I've no idea what could be causing these issues since it happens exclusively in Fallout 4, every other game I have works "fine". I tried under-clocking my GPU, re-seating it, reinstalling drivers, etc. I have no viruses or malware and neither the CPU or GPU are overheating. This is a very frustrating issue since it happens very randomly and I have to restart the game to get rid of it.


It happens randomly, after around 5 minutes of playtime or after 2 hours. It is not specific to a type of texture, as it can happen to anything, no matter size or type. It does go away if I get close to the object, but as soon as I move away it reappears. I'm guessing it has something to do with distance-specific textures getting corrupted when loading? I must also mention that this happens whether the game is modded or not. I did a fresh install recently to prepare for the 1.3 patch and it still happens.


I have no clue how to get rid of this! Any and all help is appreciated. I have made an album on Imgur with screenshots of the issues here.


My specs in case anyone needs them:


CPU: AMD A10 5800k (OC to 4.4Ghz, previously 4.6 but I had to increase voltage to 1.45 and that made me uneasy)

GPU: MSI Gaming R9 380 4Gb (OC 1000Mhz Clock, 1500Mhz Memory)

RAM: Kingston Hyper X Fury 2x4GB 1866Mhz

PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus ST60F 600w Fully Modular

Storage: Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250Gb (OS + Fallout 4), 1tb WD Blue (other Steam games), 250gb WD Caviar Blue (media), 500gb Toshiba HDD in a Rosewill external enclosure (backups and software installers)


Current GPU drivers: Catalyst 15.11.1beta

I rolled back from Crimson, since it both didn't fix the issues and made my PC very unstable. I got sick of dealing with constant GPU crashing in games, especially in Fallout 4. Catalyst is stable for me.


Thank you for any assistance!
