So I ran through the process and it installed software for the NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator. I was also thinking of playing a different game other than Call Of Duty 4 and see what happens. But I have been able to run in normal mode all day with no problems, but I haven't played any games.

The game I am going to try is Call of Duty 1, I also have the physical disk.

I just have to make sure we are dealing with genuine disks and not download as this could be the problem.
Glad to see you have original store bought disk.

By the way, could FPS have anything to do with the crashes because I run the game at about 250 Frames Per Second. And Call Of Duty 1 is my other game I wanted to try and I think it runs at about 30-60 frames per second, the graphics aren't also as good and Call of Duty 4.

So I am running at 125 FPS at the moment. I don't want to test it tonight, because I'm tired, and it just (I don't know how to explain it) weirds me out when I get a computer crash. So I will try that out tomorrow.
I also got my gpu down to 50C with the help of that EVGA program!

I know exactly what you mean. I work as a Tech in a computer shop and I have no problems on everyone else's computers. "Here's the bad news... Here's the price".
and it just (I don't know how to explain it) weirds me out when I get a computer crash.
But when it comes to my own computer, I kind of forget what's going on, my head gets all woozy and I'm like "noooo this can't be happening..."

Having more FPS doesn't mean the GPU is working harder... Conversely, it typically means the GPU isn't working as hard, since it can easily render frames so quickly. Think of it this way... You may be able to calculate 1+1 many times in a minute, but how many times can you calculate [insert really hard math problem here]? The point is, you might get more "Answers per second" when doing 1+1, but you certainly aren't working hard to get those answers.
Also, it wouldn't make sense for COD4 to have a recommended FPS of 125... The typical LCD monitor can only refresh 60 times per second at most, so you won't actually see any more FPS than that...

- The system seems to run fine under normal use
- The majority of the crashes happen when attempting to play any game
- The majority of the crashes happen with Nvidia drivers
- Cooling the GPU with faster fan speeds has proved unsuccessful
- Downloaded and installed the newest drivers for GPU
