Windows 7: Black screen and max speed fans shortly after booting

Black screen and max speed fans shortly after booting

Hi all,

So I've had this computer with few issues since I built it but recently whenever i start it in normal mode it runs fine for about 12 mins then the fans (GPU I think) start whirring at max speed and it stops sending anything to the monitor. It works fine all day in safe mode. I've tried: reinstalling graphics drives, reinstalling windows (+ reformat), dusting it, resetting the CPU with new goop, resetting the GPU after dusting, prayer to gods old and new etc... I haven't messed with bios at all. Can anyone help me resolve this? Was there a bad driver released or is this definitely a hardware issue? Thanks!

For reference I'm running:
ASUS p867 le mobo
AMD radeon HD 6950 GPU
Intel i5 2500K CPU
Windows 7
some ram and shiz etc

P.S. sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
