New i5 4690k - Desktop screen tearing

September 6, 2017 at 10:51:50
Specs: Windows 10, i5 4690k
Hi, after 1 week of upgrading my CPU/GPU/MOBA I experienced disguisting screen tearing both in games and on my desktop. It cause my chrome to crash, windows are leaving trails, changing shapes and fonts are very distorted (randomly). I feel like it's mostly or horizontal only.

My old spec: i5 2400, GTX 660, Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3, 8GB RAM DDR3 Corsair CX 650(new)
New spec: I5 4690k, GTX 1060, ASROCK Z97 Anniversary/ASUS Z87M Plus, 8GB RAM DDR3, Corsair CX 650

Checked 1060 with i5 2400 on older moba and everything was alright.
Checked i5 4690k with 2 motherboards and same issue on both of them.

Temperature seems okay.

I did format my SSD like 4 times in the mean time. Uninstalled and reinstalled GPU drivers many times. Tried many built in Windows 10 diagnostic softwares. Intel processor diagnostic tool said that every test is passed.

Some pics and videos:

[One bluescreen on the video was fixed by installing some missing drivers, it happened after format]

I am scared and sad...

Update the BIOS on ALL the boards.

I remember you. If you just upgraded to this CPU, then it came with some sort of warranty, correct? If so, label it as DoA and get a replacement. If not, as riider said, you probably can't make anything worse by flashing the BIOSes.

could it be that you are using a very old monitor?
perhaps they are not quite compatible with each other, or am i talking nonsense again?

Simple solutions are often the best
