6970 random start and stop freezing

Hi folks, got a problem here. I have been using my 6970 for quite a while now but recently for a strange reason I will be playing a game, and it will freeze for around 10 seconds, flicker with a random colored fuzz-looking screen for a half a sec, then it will go black for around 3-5 secs, then it will go back to the game like it didnt have a problem.. and then i can play for a while longer, then it will happen again. Thank guys.

    Could be a few things,

    Drivers
    Clocks in overdrive are too high
    Faulty card
    Heat
    (Anything I'm missing? This doesn't sound like a power issue)

    A few things you could try to identify the issue:

    Update everything.
    Check your temps, if high clean fans, used compressed air to clean the card.
    Lower your clocks slightly in CCC and see if the issue persists.
    Try the card in another computer if all else fails.

    You can use GPU-z to check temps/ GPU load / clock speeds, to see if the issue occurs at low GPU load as well as high. Good luck.
