No FPS drops, abnormal temps, stutters, etc. However after a random amount of time and in an assortment of different games, it will BlueScreen and reboot at some point. Whether it be 30min, 2hrs, 4hrs, etc...it will happen -I've tried: Tried updating to latest ATI drivers using different methods (DriverSweeper, no CCC, etc). Fresh install of Windows 7 after formatting HDD. Kept my install minimal so the software I have currently installed is basically nothing. On this current fresh install I went for the latest beta ATI drivers (14.1?) just to see if it were the previous ones that caused the bug...no dice. Ran Memtest for 8 passes and returned 7 errors, so I tried a friends 1 stick of RAM...no dice.

(Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-02-10 23:44 EST-0500) I'm begging for help at this point! I have plans to upgrade to a Mid ATX tower/Motherboard/maybe PSU soon but I really don't want to upgrade if I can't find out what the true cause of this issue is. Whether it be strictly software/driver related or hardware related. I greatly appreciate advance!
