    sounds like you might have overclock your GPU a little too high. Try setting the GPU speed back to stock and see if it helps.

    Yep... sounds like you need to back off your core clock freq a little bit, or get better cooling for your video card's gpu.

    Be really careful when you replace those heatsinks from the video card. There are quite a few people who didn't do it correctly, end up burning up their video card. Make sure you install the headsink correctly. Otherwise, it will be your own fault and the manufacturer won't replace it.
