kernel itself fails sounds familiar, but I am not sure. I will try the evga precision to control the fan speed and see what happens. I did a burn test for almost a hour and the temp maxed out at 79C, is that too hot?
I was playing the expansion to Deus Ex Human Revolution, the Missing Link game and it crashed the same way it did in Deus Ex Human Revolution. This time I got this message saying the game exe was at fault, no errors from the geforce program.
Here is the message that gets displayed under the option to close program or check online for solutions.
