When I try to play Crysis or Dragon age in 3 way sli, Crysis will only play for a few mins then restart the whole computer. With Dragon age as soon as it loads up intro with the dragon and the EA logo it does the same thing. I installed windows 7 64 bit about 2 weeks ago, from vista 64 bit home prem. It was a fresh install. Oddly when I was using vista Crysis, would do the same thing but with Dragon age it worked perfectly fine, untill the new drivers, then it would restart. Ive already tried the cards by themselfes, 2 of the 3 played fine after a hour of crysis the 3rd one would restart 30 to 15 mins of play. All 3 worked perfectly fine for Dragon age and my other games. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, using driver sweeper with no success. Ive tried it with just 2 card sli and both restart after a few mins of play. Ive tried my old psu an antec 850 watt in 2 way sli and the problem still occurs. Down clocked the cards the lowest they can go and it only seems to delay the restart by 5 mins or so. Checked my ram, and turns out its fine. Turned up the voltage on the north bridge and nothing... So if anyone can help me out here.... Im tired of racking my brain on whats wrong with it.


My specs
Cpu: Intel core i7 920
Mother board: EVGA X58 3x SLI Classified
Gpu: EVGA Gtx 285 superclocked x3
Ram: Corsair Dominator 6144MB PC12800 DDR3 1600MHz 6gigs
PSU: Ultra x3 1600 watt (running at 1200)
Sound card: Creative sound blaster x-fi titanium fatalty

For some reason speed fan isnt showing my gpu temps anymore and neither is pc wizard, but if I remeber correctly it was about 65c to 74c ish. Ive already tried the big fan test and it still didnt extend the time before the restart. Also I looked up the event viewer and got these. Also to me, it doesnt make any sense that the computer overheats as soon as Dragons age bearly boots up to the intro EA logo , but with Crysis i can play for a few mins, wich is a more graphic intesive game..... anyways thanks for any help.
