I am new to this forum but was wondering if your guys could help me out. I've been back and forth with Blizzard, ASUS, Nvidia and PNY and still haven't a solution. Basically, I set up my PC (homebuilt) as my specs say in January. I played World of Warcraft (wow) straight up till a few weeks ago with no problems. After the 1.8 patch, my pc started to randomly reboot; more often as time went on to the point I could start and intense gfx programs without it crashing.
I pulled of the case and noticed the gpu fan was pretty clogged. I cleaned it out and she started to run well again but still would reboot. Long story short, I have tried everyting I can think of from reinstalling window and/or drivers to propping fans blowing in the case and unplugging periphs.
I am pretty sure its not power or heat according the monitors. Some say drivers but I can't help thinking that my card went bad when the fan was clogged. A few of the BSOD's I have gotten were the IRQ not less than and the wdsmd.sys dump.
Funny thing is when I stwitch out the 6800 for my 5200, everything runs fine again. What do you guyss think is going on. I was gonna send back my card on warranty but if they can't crash it in strees test, they just send it back.
Thanks in advance
