Hi, I recently installed a new fan onto my 6850, before this the fan was having problems and wouldn't spin properly, however the card itself worked fine on games. I decided to get a new fan, I went with the Scythe Setsugen, I installed the fan onto the graphics card and put it on my computer, everything works fine until i launch a game, as soon as I launch the game the intro video plays for about 2 seconds and then freezes. The screen then goes black and if I don't exit out of the game I end up getting a blue screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Also, it's definitely the card, as I have another 6850 (was going to use them crossfire) that works fine if I put it in on its own.
Why did you not rma the card in the first place? Also what are the temps of the card? Use gpu-z or msi afterburner to check.
