Hi everyone,

I'm overclocking my 7970. For whatever reason my GPU seems to stop functioning after 70 degrees C. Usually the screen will go black and then it will reappear telling me that my drivers have crashed. I'm wondering why temperature affects whether my drivers work, especially such a relatively low temperature. Is there some other problem occurring or is this due to only the temperature?

Thanks.

Could be a voltage issue. I'd need more information. What do you have the clock speed and voltage set at and what manufacturer/model i.e. XFX Black Edition etc.....
