Video Cutting Out During Games?

I am playing Total War: Rome and the video just quits working sometimes. The screen will go blank and I can hear small high pitched noises. Sometime the monitor will come back on say that my video card is resetting and other times I just have to reboot. I've got my X800 oc'ed. When it says it's resetting my card is it resetting it to the default or to the profile settings I have it set to (which is higher than the default. I'm using ATI tool)

 

I let the game set the video settings for itself and almost everything was set to high. I played the game last night for about 5 hours before it messed up the first time and this morning it's doing it every 20 minutes or so.

 

Any clue as to what's going on or what I could do to fix it?

sounds very much like its overheating. the heatsink/fan on the x800 series doesn't look that efficient tbh. personally I would look into a artic silencer for it if you are overclocking. if the game runs fine at stock speeds at the resolution/filters you want just run it like that.

How much do you have it OCed and what program did you use to do it?

 

I run mine at 530mhz/500mhz (memory) and it works fine.

Any higher then that, though, and you can expect glitches. Also, be careful not to fry your card. I know how expensive those x800s are :P

 

 

 

Default is 475/450ish.
