I notice that it restarts when the GPU reaches 70c( Which isnt bad right?) and it usually happens after 30 minutes of playing the game.
I thought it was a hardware problem, but with Crysis I ran it on Ultra and the temp got up to 75c(GPU temp) and I played that for a while.
So is it some kind of driver I am missing or hardware failing?
- Phenom II 840T @2.9
- XFX 6870 (Stock clocks) *Just bought it Thursday
- 620w Antec High Current Gamer *Just bought last week
Case: HAF 912 (Only 1 exhaust fan, might be getting a 200mm for intake)
(70/75c) what component are these temps from, i'm going to assume the gpu. so yes those temps are safe for a gpu, but have you checked your cpu temp? cpu usage is dependent on the game so i'd check the cpu temps as you play
Which driver revision are you using? If you are using one of the beta drivers out right now that can cause issues with some games. Try some other titles, is it only crashing in BC2? Or are you getting BSODs and restarts in most or all games? If you have the latest official driver (11.9) try 11.8 and see if the problem persists. You can also try furmark if you want to check your GPU's stability. If you are getting crashes from multiple games across multiple driver revisions then you probably have a hardware problem. If it's hardware it could either be the video card, power supply, or as stated above CPU overheating. If it is between PSU and graphics, you're going to have to see if you can get another PSU or similar graphics card and test with that.
He did say that he also ran Crysis on ultra, and I don't think it crashed on him. If that's the case this is either a driver problem related only to BC2, or there is something wrong with the game itself. If he's getting a BSOD from BC2, it's probably a driver issue.
