Hey.

What can cause RSOD in the middle of game (Metro LL, Absolution..)

I recently upgraded my VGA from HD6950 to VTX3D HD7870 and also changed from stock cooler to Twin Turbo 2.

After this problem came up, i ran Heaven benchmark for about 1hour and no problems but after playing Metro for about 1.5 hours the screen turns to red without any text and then RESTART. Did i broke my VGA by installing new cooler or is anything else broken? Where to start looking?

My first guess is that the card is overheating.

Monitor the cards temp wile playing Metro.

Did you clean off and reapply the thermal paste when you changed the cooler?

Temps are normal, max. 50C in heaven benchmark. In Heaven benchmark this card is stable (even 4 hours, just tried). But i think i messed when i installed vrm and vram heatsinks. I Hope i did not broke motherboard or cpu, this card did not cost very much and i can buy new one.
