So far yeah. It's probably the most demanding game I have.
I think I'll try playing Mass effect 2 and see if it does the same thing.


Down clocking it below stock you mean?

I ended up playing Red Faction Armageddon in DirectX 10/11 mode for about 2 hours last night and no crash.

In Furmark my temps get up to 79 and then it stays steady at 77-79.
I think the 6850 protection is stepping in.

if it's stable under furmark, I think it might be a software issue.
when you downloaded and installed the latest drivers earlier. did you do it the quick way? if yes, try completely removing nvidia drivers and re-install it again.
(your screen might not come back on after the uninstall phase... i waited a good ten minutes before resetting my computer, it loaded window's default drivers. I then installed nvidia's driver. but this did fix the issue for me.)

Attachment 4813

also update directx if its not up to date.
