i posted a topic a few weeks ago about games crash with directx error.
i read a lot of threads, in this forum and others and did all the things i could find. even contacted the gigabyte website and installed the drivers recommended on their website to no avail.
recently when crashes occure there is a black screen with green vertical lines and the system is not responding anymore. although not always.
the problem only happens when im gaming and the crossfire is on.
i think i have found the problem, but 1st im not sure if it is the problem and second i dont know how to fix it.
the problem is that when my pc crashes, the northbridge heatsink which is attached to AMD 990fxa gets really really hot.
i dont know what to do.. please help...
