Yesterday I got a Sapphire Fury X to replace my long runner Nvidia. Nothing but troubles since last night.
I uninstalled all Nvidia related with DDU under safe mode (Win 7 64bit). Installed Catalyst 15.7.1 and run Witcher for app 10 min, all good. Then Metro 2033 and Last light Redux. After some like 5 min these crash/lock the system and force reset. I use MSI Afterburner, no O/C on anything. Temps perfectly stable while in game (45-48C). Then Heaven Benchmark cannot even start, crashes black screen and hard reset needed. Furmark - same crash, cannot start.
After several DDU/Driver installs I noticed, that if I start Metro, and before it crashes I go to Video options and change SSAO or tessalation settings it immediately crashes. Witcher also seems to crash, but no blackscreen, just desktop after some 10-15 min.
Anyway, I tried reseting BIOS to defaults. Installing Catalyst 15.7 is the same story. Almost seems like it is O/C'ed too high, but AB reports core 1050 and mem 500, at stock while running game.7
Most disturbing for me is that starting Furmark/Heaven benchmark leads to immediate crash, blackscreen, hard reset
No problems running video/twitch/youtube or browsing - perfectly stable.
Also no problems with the system for 2 years and old Nvidia
Any advises appreciated
