+Jon Denton and anyone else who might be able to help...

Am getting random PC crashes, and seems to be linked to GPU. I've disable the Intel on board graphics jobby (as this was reportedly causing the issues at least some of the time) in BIOS, which should have supposedly only kicked when the PC was under low load.

It isn't temp related (highest under stress testing was 80c which is fine for the card), and voltages seem a solid 1.25v under load (the rated voltages for under load).

I've no idea what all the codes mean, but I know the BCC codes (116/117) relate to graphics hardware. It tends to happen under load, though I think might have happened occasionally in normal use. You can see from the reliability graph that... it isn't overly reliable.

I've uninstalled/reinstalled drivers, and don't know what else to do.

ATI 4870X2 GPU at stock clock rates
i5 2500k @4.5 GHz (currently pegged right back to try and solve this issue, but CPU/memory have been fully stress tested and are fine)
16 GB Corsair Vengeance (4x4GB) Memory 1600 MHz (again pegged back to 1333 Mhz to try and resolve issue)
Asus P8Z68-V Pro/GEN3 mobo
Corsair HX650w Professional Series PSU (all voltages seem stable)
Windows 7 64bit (practically clean install, with only updates and minimum software installed).

All temps/voltages seem fine, and as I say everything has been stress tested and is fine.

Any help much appreciated!

Just look at this. Look at it! It is stunning! The workmanship, the amazing likeness to The People's Princess™ herself...

Fixing my gaze upon its immeasurable beauty brought many a tear to my eye.

For those waiting on Raspberry Pi's...

Shouldn't have too much of an impact on delivery times hopefully.
