Hello , i got new asus gtx 660 twin frozr . Its crash on every game i try to play after 1-2 minutes . Temp are low. Got no idea whats wrong.
On FURMARK it crashes in 20-30 seconds even on low resolution. Currently newest drivers installed. Tryed older drivers but still same problem. :( 
Did cpu stress test for 20min max temp 60c.
Memory test OK aswell.

I took video :

Any ideas ?

Comp spec.
Q6600 processor.
Kingston ddr2 ram.
750w ARTIC RED psu.
Original DEll e520 motherboard.

Thank you for answer. I just want to be sure its not GPU failing . As i understand and what can you see on video i think if it was GPU fail maybe whole screen should be blinkin at the moment drivers stops working ? now its just furmark screen...

PS it never crashed on normal use , while watchin HD videos on youtube, browsing internet etc . Fails just on games , benchmarks etc.

Fixed my problem :) ) i tryed to use another 6pin power cable for GPU as corsair tx650 got 2 of them. Then i noticed that mu GPU are kinda loose it was kinda hangin so i fixed that aswell. now it holds fine.
Boot up my pc. turn on FURMARK and i was really surprised managed to run it for more than 10 min and i had no problem. tryed couple games NFS Rivals and Splinter Cell blacklist on ULTRA settings on 1680x1050 resolution. No problem at all. No crashes or nothink. Temp stay's between 50-60c on load .:) 
At the moment i use newest drivers 337.88 .
