It makes a pretty big log file, so be ready. It logs about everything there is.

Ask and you shall receive... BSOD while logging. Temperatures were all pretty normal (80 degrees) at the time of the BSOD, especially considering I was gaming.

I have attached the temperature logs, and was going to attach the dump logs, but for some reason, this BSOD did not register in them.

Any idea where to go from here? Have we exhausted our avenues?

I do not have a spare GPU or PSU to swap out unfortunately... I was considering making an impulse PSU buy and swapping it in, but none of the local stores near me have one with a high enough wattage.

Open you case and see if the fan is running. The log shows fan speed as 0%. (GPU Fan)

Yes, the fan is running. Also, I fired up the software again and, even when I can visibly verify the fan is running, it claims fan speed is 0%. It must not be capable of fetching the fan speed from my card *shrug*

Hwmonitor works for me. Both cpu and gpu fan speed.

Yes, but it could be using an API call that is not available on some NVIDIA graphics cards. Just a thought.

GPUz works for me. It tells the %fan and the RPMs of it too. Do you have software to set a user profile for the fan speed? If not, MSI Afterburner is a good program. It is primarially an overclocking program, But you can set fan profiles and on screen monitoring of numerous functions So that you can see them while playing.

But why would it matter? I can physically see the fan turning and the temperature was well within safe operating temperatures for the GTX 590 when I got the BSOD.

Let's assume the fan stops for some reason... if the video card isn't overheating, does anything actually happen? (in other words, could a suddenly stopped fan on a video card cause a BSOD regardless of temperature?)

Edit: That said, I downloaded MSI Afterburner and it can read my fan speed just fine. It is running at about 50% capacity right now while gaming.

Another symptom of these BSODs that I failed to mention is that the video card fan will suddenly jump up from whatever speed it was running at to an extremely fast speed. This happens right when the screen goes black/computer crashes.

Minor detail, but thought it could be good to know...

1. If you GPU card fan quiets when you card is in use your card will overheat. (BSOD)
2.If you watch your fan speed and temps at the same time you should see the fan increase when the temps increase if it is set at Auto.
3. The fan stopping per say doesn't really do anything to the system except allow the video card to overheat.
Example: Unplugging the video card fan.

4. If the fan shorts out and quiets the short could back feed into the motherboard causing problems.
----------
At the present time I think we should just worry about your fan working properly and your temps under load.
Do your gaming and watch your fan speed and temps and let us know what they are.
