    Computer (almost) freezes on high load

    Tristan23

      Hi there,

      my system has 2 x 6970.

      I have an OpenCL application that generates almost 100% GPU load.

      The system was running stable for about two weeks.

      Recently I get the following behaviour:

      - after a few minutes one of the GPU fans (always the same GPU) goes up to 100%.

      - the system (almost) freezes. Keyboard doesn't work anymore. Mouse movment is very erratic.

      What could be the problem?

       

      cheers,

      T.

          Have you updated any software recently?
