Video crash

Hello, I need information on video crashing. On a game I play called AION the screen breaks up into large shards of mixed colors. Are my cards failing or maybe the northbridge? I am using Asus m4a785td-v-evo motherboard, 2-asus 5750 crossfired cards, amd 965 black on liquid cooling, 8g of DDR3 ram, and 650w ps. Any thoughts.

  1. Is the card overclocked and are the drivers updated?
  2. Drivers updated and work fine in my other computer.
  3. What is your OC settings? {CPU/GPU/DDR}

    What is the part-number of your DDR?

    If you are OC then you need a 750W. What you are describing typically comes for either a bad OC and or PSU drops {dirty power} at its limit.
  4. They are not overclocked.
  5. the ram is patriot 1600 DDR3
  6. The north bridge cooler is on air and quite hot, I mean you can't put your fingers on it very long
  7. NB are normally hot.

    I have seen a lot of stability issues with Patriot DDR. Since you did provide the Patriot P/N:
    1. Check you DDR Certified - http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=fcsXWSxnhzZE9rnR
    2. Patriot Tested - http://www.patriotmemory.com/configurator/index.jsp

    My assumption is that it isn't on the list. In addition, run Memtest86+ for 1-2 hours {use the ISO} http://www.memtest.org/
  8. Sorry for the delay I was waiting to get more memory that matched the QVL. I purchased G Skill 10666 6 Gig kit. Same results with the new ram. I am using only one video card now and have changed them back and forth . I am currently using one of the cards in my other computer with no faults. I don't get it it ran for seven months from new build,why now.
