Last week Bad Company 2 had a punkbuster update that caused the game to crash if you were running a program like MSI Afterburner, or Sapphire Trixx. So, I closed Trixx and played BC2 for a couple hours without issue. Now, the problem is, in other games, I'm getting artifacting followed by the entire PC crashing. This only happens every so often, but it happens in any game I've played. My temps are normal (<75C), and I have the stock HD 6950 bios flashed to the card, but the artifacts still show up... Any clue what the issue could be, or has anyone else had this with their HD 6950? My theory is that when CCC took over as auto-fan control, it let the gpu get too warm, which caused some damage to either the vram, or gpu itself.
