apparently my system is crashing (i.e. the screen is frozen, but I can connect via
kill -9 -1 doesn't kill all my processes though) when I play intensive videogames/3D benchmarks (
HoN and the
Unigine Valley benchmark).
What I've experienced so far is that apparently the GPU (nVidia 470 GTX) skyrockets to 91+ degree of temperature. If I keep the case open this behaviour usually doesn't happen.
What do you think it is? Is it my GPU bruned and doesn't tolerate high temperatures anymore?
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 (x86-64) and driver nVidia 310.14.
