Well since you think its heat, I tested it with furmark and it handles well under pressure. As for constantly rendering the same image, again I minimize it making gpu load 0, nothing to render. My place is hot, so I been turning it off during the day while im out, and leaving it up at night since its much cooler. I also cleaned the dust from the fan. I am not quite sure how its getting hotter if the temp is stable. The hottest I let it get was 65c but it kept dropping between 60 and 63 for about 3 minutes, and then I got bored of the fur ring spinning :| This was a stability test.

In all likelihood it's just another ATI driver bug and there's probably nothing you can do about it except wait for another release? That the card is able to loop futurmark without overheating probably means it's not a temp thing. I realize the 10.3 cats are supposed to be a great improvement over previous driver versions, but, they're really not. Yes, some issues are resolved... others, not so much.

Yea, I upgraded to 10.3 after it happened. I also dropped the clock from 700mhz back to the stock 650mhz. I OC'd in the CCC thinking it wouldnt cause harm if ATI let me do it them self. Maybe I'm wrong? No grey screen yet, and it has been given a run for its money. Been playing GTA4, and I must say that game can really let rip on the GPUs load. Yea its not crysis, ooooooh, but that game is hardware intense still.
