Default Re: GeForce 6800 and random freezes

I haven't tried farcry yet and I have zero issues with Doom 3 but after 5-10 mins of painkiller it will pause for 30secs to 1 min and when it starts again I get artifacts all over the screen so I quit and they are all over the desktop as well. I shut down and restart and all is well again. I have tried all the suggestions fw, same 2d and 3d settings etc. I'm thinking this is either a bios issue or heat on the ram. The fan on the cards never increases in speed so either the thermal sensor doesn't track the temp of the mem or the bios isn't speeding up the fan. But then I wonder why this doesn't do it in Doom?
