Sounds like it's dying, however it can be revived by sticking it in the oven, follow this guide

The only reason i'm in this forum is to lurk the GPU forums and suggest the oven fix as soon as a card shows any suspicion of being defective. You're taking away my reason to live! ... Just Kidding.

Anyways.. Yeah it sounds like it's dying. But before you even try the oven fix, might as well check that the temperatures aren't going trough the roof since you reported it only happens when stressing it.

The TEMP threshold for that card is 105C, but if the load temp is anywhere near 100 then it's most likely that. If it's the temperatures, try boosting the fan profile to 100, check the airflow and dust blockages. If that doesn't work and you have no warranty then... OVEN FIX

Send it to me then , I'll bake it and use it for F@H. Are you in the UK?

EDIT: I'll pay for shipping as well
