System Crashes - Graphics card issue (GTX 560 GigaByte)
Hello everyone and a happy new year!
Just the day before yesterday I managed to build my rig (I hope specs are shown below cause I can't see them in preview - 2nd post of mine).
Drivers and S/W are all up to date.
I had absolutely no issues until I launched a game to play. After 2-3 minutes I got a system freeze with no sound stuttering. I said "hey, things like that happen - reboot". I re-checked drivers and validated that all were up to date. The problem persisted with a different game.
After that I got really suspicious because during the whole setup phase the PC was really impressive and fast and so I went to the System Rating of windows which I know that this test performs a check on Direct 3D. When it reached that phase the computer froze again.
Until now I only had a little time left to browse the internet for a possible solution and the conclussion I have at least for the time being is that my gtx 560 is causing this (driver wise - despite the fact that its the latest). Apparently my old staff are long gone and I dont have any other card to try anything.
An other thing that I watched was the temps in all four cores when I had to reboot after the freezes from the bios. 40-48 deg C an all four (so I personally think this could not be the reason of crash).
Any help would be appreciated and sorry if I was too chatty in the first place.
