okay so to sum up your original post - no errors in all tests , all instructions followed.
back to square 1 D: .
going to install a new beta driver just incase theres a one off chance of it helping.. i dobut it though.

If a reinstall of windows doesnt fix the problem , am i safe to say theres a good chance its the P.S.U?

-btw thanks alot for your help so far.

Change PSU with better\stronger is always a good idea.

As you said you finished with all the above steps.

Play\work as usual,give it time (maybe 1-2 days) and post back.

In meantime if you like to change the PSU,yes it helps.

It was worrisome that after your computer crashed, the fans then went full speed.

If you are crashing from heat it may be because the BIOS is not handling your fan speeds correctly. You may be able to fix it by installing SpeedFan and specifically setting your fan speed(s) to max, at least when you intend to play games...

There may be an option in your BIOS that allows better fan controll as well.

THere have been cases of BIOSes and GPU drivers that improperly handle the fan and cause such problems.

The actual allowed temps are of course CPU and GPU specific. I.e. my GTX480 (a 230 watt beast of yore) runs at 80-90C with dual monitors when playing Skyrim and that is "normal". The CPU runs at about 45C. Never had any heat related issues...

only 50 % of the time the gpu fan will increase like that , other times it will crash indetically but fan speeds will stay the same , ill check my bios fan settings now.

Ok.. Yeah if it's crashing /instantly/, then it's likely not heat, or atleast not heat any more...

Either software (Drivers) or hardware that's gone bad, after all your testing the only hardware I'd suspect is the video card itself atm.

You have any alternative video cards you could swap in for a bit?
