I have a gigabyte 7950 triforce. I've had the card going on 2 months now and have been loving it. I recently started playing BF4 and noticed that the card was getting VERY hot. The side plating where it says gigabyte was almost too hot to lay your finger across. After about 30 minutes to an hour of gaming( single and/or multi) the game would freeze and the computer would restart. I had noticed the temp rising in other games (planetside 2, metro 2033) but not to this level and the other games played stable for hours and hours on end. When i would minimize battlefield to check the temps in overdrive it would not go past 76c but it just seemed so much hotter. So I upgraded the bios on my asrock fm2a75m-dgs .I hadnt done that since my original build in February . Now the computer will restart if i even try to open BF4. I have no idea what i've done and any help would be greatly appreciated. My other specs are an a10-5800k with a hyper evo 212 (not overclocked,i still havent gotten around to it yet), 8gb patriot viper 1866mhz ram and an orion 650 watt PS.
