Crash During Bad Company 2

I had an overheating problem with my Crossfire 4850s (temps were getting up to 110 C) that I got under control, but my computer keeps shutting down during gaming and I'm not sure what the problem was. I dialed back my i7-920 to stock settings (I set everything to Auto on my motherboard (p6t)) and I ran memtest . I was playing Bad Company 2 and there were a few horizontal lines on the screen and eventually after about 20 minutes I got a bluescreen. I've had the computer for about a year and this is the first time I've started having problems. Any ideas?

Just installed the new Crossfire application profiles which are supposed to get rid of these horizontal lines. That seems to be unrelated to the crashing problem.

Can you post your system temps under after at least an hour of running Prime 95's Blend test? Also, what did you do to correct the overheating on the two 4850's?

It points to a heat related issue at first glance but maybe related to PSU or RAM.

I moved my cards to the 1st and 3rd slot to get rid of the head problem. They're running much cooler. I'll post PRIME95 temps after I get home.
