No problem, it is likewise for me so my responses will be delayed as well.

Nothing happened during the test, temps never went above 65 degrees. Not sure if this will be helpful, but it did remind me of a bit of information that I forgot to include in my opening post: I remember running tests like this on my CPU, RAM and GPU. CPU and RAM never returned any errors, but running Furmark caused a hard freeze after about...30-40 minutes I think? That caused me to believe the GPU was at fault and I got it replaced, but then the problems started again about one or two months afterwards.

Did you run a second Furmark test, in a different slot with the different GPU?

Hmm...That's where my memory gets a bit fuzzy. I dont believe I did, I just thought I had found the issue and sent the GPU off back to the store. I had an older spare GPU that I think I tested and it did not crash when I ran furmark with it, though its very possible that was just sheer dumb luck.

Please run a Furmark test using a different slot.

Are there any specific settings I should use for Furmark? I've tried a couple of default 1080hd tests and a custom 10 minute variant, but none managed to produce any crashes in the default GPU slot. If I cant consistently crash the computer with Furmark, then its gonna be difficult verifying whether or not changing the GPU slot does anything.

The settings I would suggest to enable
- Dynamic background
- Burn-in
- Xtreme burn-in
- Post-FX
- GPU temperature, max 85C
- Log GPU data

In Benchmark duration (ms), change 6 to 120 to run it for 20 minutes.

After this is done, click Benchmark (user's settings) to test using the configured settings.

Tried it 5 times now, not a single crash occurred.

Sounds like a part of your motherboard is defect. Normally it is recommended to replace a motherboard when a part of it is defect, but you could continue using the motherboard though.
