hope it works out
it's really weird, I was playing oblivion at like "125C" smoothly without problems
Then eventually it does crap out with artifacts and hardlocks, I still think that it's lying about temp but there is something else weird
usually when I OCed it would jump up to the higher temps, but if I stopped the OC or lowered settings then the temp would quickly fall to normal...
after rebooting it was still 110C and it slowly very slowly would go down 1degree at a time back to 85C (like 1 degree every 30-60 seconds) So that's weird too... going to do this driver cleaning thing now. be back soon
