Hey all, I got my new PC with a 5970 about a week ago, and I'm having some issues .
Seemingly randomly (once, left computer to run a memtest, another time in BF3, and another just browsing the web) the 5970's usually quiet-ish fan shoots up to 100% speed (very loud), and the screen goes black. Looking at the card, there's a red light. At first I thought it was overheating or something, but I've never seen it go above 80 at load. Also, it's done this at idle as well =( I'll list my specs:
Corsair 750W PSU ASUS Z68 Pro Motherboard 2500k Saphire 5970
Is it a faulty card?
PS: WHen this happens, the computer dosen't work. Even holding the power button dosen't turn it off, I was forced to cut the power the hard way.
