Correct, only the manufacturer could run a test on it. Given the PSU blow up and the other hardware seems to be OK, the only thing left is the mobo, sorry.

The black screen and restarting are a good indicator of a bad board.

I would apply for a RMA for the mobo.

There was nothing I could see in the log that showed anything abnormal, other than it looks like it crashed 4 seconds after starting the log.

I can only say I didn't see anything in the card to indicate a problem. But, I only had 4 seconds of readings to try to tell. The first dump you sent me, did the card crash?

The first one locked up my system and kicked me out of the game

OK, I'll take another look at the first one. But, I'm thinking it may be a motherboard problem, especially with the fireworks inside the case with the first PSU. If you have another Graphics card, I would try that to see whether it is the card or the board. Plus, you have a 765 chipset for the FX chip. Even though Gigabyte says it will run an FX chip, it was not designed for it. Try downloading Ungine Heaven Basic edition (free) and run the extreme benchmark settings. Just use the preset Extreme settings. It's a DX11 Benchmark and is a lot more interesting than Furmark, but will give your card a pretty good workout.
