It depends on your graphics card.

While running this test.
Conservative: 80C
Max: 90C
Set your GPU fan speed to high for testing.

Daily heavy use, example gaming, 70C.

You are suppose to look for artifacts.

From the tutorial I posted:
Quote:
6. Watch for artifacts on the screen, and keep an eye on the temperature log. If you see artifacts, or the temperature levels out, stop the test.
For this test run minimum of 30 minutes.
Watch GPU temps, let us know what they level off at and if they continue to slowly climb.

artifacts - from the link in the tutorial.

The lock screen sees random freezes and a hard reset is required.
Hello, at random times the lock-screen freezes and a hard reset is needed. Keyboard light still toggle yet the SysReq + REISUB key combination does not do anything. Where is some syslog for checking why the kernel dumped and find potential solutions? This is windows 8.1, is this a known bug?

ndis.sys BSOD (timing seems random)
I get the BSOD every couple of weeks. Most of the research I've done indicated that it was probably an out of date driver, but I've updated everything I could (at least everything that I'm aware of). I can't pinpoint any specific activity that causes it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
