Computer crashes when video card reaches 69 degrees Celsius

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I built a computer about 2 weeks ago and lately when playing games my system will occasionally freeze up and a loud buzzing sound comes from my speakers. The sound happened even if my computer had been muted in Windows.

I tried upgrading video card driver, rolling it back, then upgrading again, but experienced crashes under all 3 trials.

I just downloaded FurMark and ran the 15 minute benchmark burn-in, and three times in a row the computer restarted the moment the video card reached 69 degrees celsius (I was using CPUID HWMonitor to verify temps with FurMark) Each time it was between 4:30 and 5:30 into FurMark. After restarting, Windows had an error message and .dmp files that said it was a BSOD error code 116

I didn't have HWMonitor running while playing games, but crashes always happened about 2-4 hours into gaming, and never happened when I was just watching movies/surfing the internet.

Rig is my sig-rig, but with only 8GB of RAM, I was having MEMOERY_MANAGEMENT BSODs before, so I RMA'd 2 sticks of RAM. The remaining 2 sticks have passed all MemTest 86 and Windows Memory Diagnostics I have run

69 giggity goo

OT: The buzzing sounds like what happened to me in BFBC2 when I was using onboard audio. Temp thing is weird though

Have you tried a program like precision (evga.com/precision) to set a custom fan profile to keep the card cooler?
