Default Sapphire 5970 (Quad Fire 2 GB OC) issues

When I boot up everything looks fine then boom it goes blank then comes back on with red dots showing up.

Yesterday it came on an looked fine then it went blue and showed a screen size like you tube filled with red dots.

My question is what might be causing this I did not OC or change anything. Anyway to check heat temps on video cards?

Bad Video card or cards

Everything is new

My system is

Cosmos S with full fans
Core I7 965 CPU
Thermaltake 1200 watt
EVGA Classified
Themaltake 1366 Cooler
Corsair Ram 8-8-8-24 3x2 6 gb (12 Total)

I did not OC anything but, had no idea shop ordered me OC version of video card so is oc to high.

GPU core clock 157 mhz
GPU memory clock 300 mhz
GPU temp 67 c
fan speed 30% fan speed 1477 rpm
GPU temp #1 69 c
GPU temp #2 70 c
GPU temp #3 69.5
VDDC 9500 v
VDDC1 1100 v
VDDC current3.5 A
VDDC1 current 4.6 A

Not sure what I should post from GPU z but, I assume since 5970's are two GPU's on each only showing 3 gpu temps above might mean one GPU failed. How do tell which failed.

Note the two 5970's are stacked on top of each other without any space between them.

Ideas please

The Catalyst Control Panel should report your cards temperature.

HwMonitor will also report your cards temperature.
