After doing some wire management yesterday I keep receiving an error while playing video games. It happens on any game for Counter strike GO to Farcry 3.

I idle around 40 but the second the game boots up, even just in menu the temps soar to around 65. Once in game it slowly rises until it hits 79 and i get the driver has stopped working and responding error every time.

I just took out my card and cleaned it with compressed air what could it be?

MOBO is asrock z77 extreme4 Videocard is Twin Frozr radeon hd 7870 CPU is 2500k psu is corsair tx750 case is nzxt phantom

Try clean your computer , might have been dust inside your pc that will increase the temperature. And do you have lots of fan to cool your computer down ?

I just did a full cleanout of my computer. Fans are on full capacity no change.

Or the OP could visually inspect the fans on the graphic card when the game is running to make sure that they actually spin up? If the problem has only started after the cable management was done then there may have been a fan than got unplugged, ever thought of that?

I upped the fans to 100% using msi afterburner and ran furmark. The temps still raise nearly 20 degrees in less than 3 seconds and creep to 79 where it crashes. Maybe the heatsink is messed up or dislodged? should i check for heat to see if it's the sensors that are messed up or just the heatsink?

Just a thought, Check and verify that both the fans on your GPU itself are functioning properly. My friend had a twin frozr 5770, and it started overheating and crashing very quickly, and we found out that not 1, but BOTH of the fans on it had completely seized up and could no longer spin. I ghetto rigged a couple stock CPU fans onto the heatsink of the card and it works flawlessly.

You so lucky! Just one of the fans on one of my 560's died and the card went up in flames. :(

What's weird, is he pulled the card from his friend's working computer, and we installed it into my friend's new pc immediately afterwards. The pc would run for maybe 1 minute tops before a very high pitched continuous beep would go off and the screen would go blank. Looked at it, and saw both fans move slightly but not spin when the power button was pressed. In fact the fans had a lot of resistance when turned manually.. Probably pick the lowest bidder when selecting fans for their cards
