Yeah, heat doesn't seem to be the problem. The shader just can't physically reach 1458 despite any voltage level. FC2 must be tickling the particular limiting wire path. If I bump the shader up just 1 notch, it locks within seconds. Down one notch, and it appears to run forever. At 1458, anywhere from 2 minutes to an hour... very frustrating to isolate...

I'm using the Vista 64-bit 181.22 drivers.
