HONESTLY, 70-77 isn't high for a 9800 card. But with bad airflow, overall might get toasty.

Hopefully they figure it out for you.

well considering my 9800GTX never went above 65C during gaming with fan on auto 70-77C is a tad high.

I run my 8800 24/7 over 70C folding. Max temp is over 100C.

But still, could be a heat related due to total temp.

well all units are different and some will become stable at lower levels. for instance i've had instability issues with CPUs rated for ~70 degrees at ~50 degrees.

Hi guys! Well at least now I know what it was. The pro guys from the servis run a mem test and it turned out that is one of the ram cirkets. One of the dudes told me to test if it will work only with one or the other stick of ram so I tested it:
first one crashes within a minute;
secound one - NOT A PROBLEM - so now I have to use my warenty and return the ram cos it's a KIT 2x2.
Problem solved and I have to admit that in the end I kind of knew that it was bad ram.

The pro's warned me that a-data suprime edition (red sticks) often make issues and that they are very "picky" and not work well with all MB's.

So best to all and good luck :-)

Did they make you pay for the test??

Didn't think it was heat.

Glad you got it sorted.
