Now to get down to helping you.......
I agree that it seems as tho your cpu is fine. If one of the cores were bad the BSOD's would only go away when that core was disabled.
Does this only happen in GTA?(I admit that I did not read every word of your thread or the posts in here as your quite annoyed me. So if you did say just please say again.)
If this only happens in GTA is it a genuine copy? (not pirate) The next thing I would do is reinstall GTA and see if that fixes it.
ALSO please quit abusing the members of this thread they are trying to help you and if you feel that we are failing then please go elsewhere with out abusing us more.
Here is the EVGA thread i have found of interest https://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?...&mpage=1#26220
As i mentioned i would expect it to be a core issue if it didn't happen after i disabled my cores but it persists ...i lowered my GPU clock and it still happens so that somewhat disapproves the EVGA thread i found and posted awhile back...i am going to throw my 4850 in and see what happens
This hasn't happened in ANY other title from America's Army 3 to Grid to Rainbow six vegas 2.....stress testing as mentioned is rock solid as well
It really is sounding like a driver issue
This is a genuine copy and i have reinstalled the game several times as well as running it with the latest patchs
I am going to do a bit of school work and let this Core Damage app run for an hour or two more before i switch out to the 4850
