Hey HWC,

My bro's computer has been acting funky for the late while. While playing games, it would black screen and crash. I've tested the 720BE with Orthos for 2 hours, 8800GS with OCCT Linpack and Memtest.

So what could be wrong?

I'd focus on overheating vid card first.... do you have the ability to manually set the fan to 100% to see if that makes the issue go away?

I cannot manually set the fan speed coz the cooler is plugged into the motherboard. His video card is a 8800GS w/ GFXChilla. I tried furmark on it and it loads at ~55*. But the black screening only happens in games.
