got the same problem, bro I already switched my card from a Asus GTX 660 to a Asus GTX 660 TI OC, no result. Also switched my system from Win7 to Win8, cause I thought it would maybe a software issue. Well, I also put my card into a other PCI - Slot (simple I know, but everything is possible xD) Before the GTX 660, I got a GTX 550 with a different issue than this, so its truely the card. At the end of the story, I also dont know, how to manage with this problem My spec: Asus (ROG) Rampage III Extreme Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz / 8 GB core i7 950 Thermaltake 650w gold Asus GTX 660 DC2-TI OC Version would be cool if somebody know something I think, it could be the nVidia driver, but I#m not sure.

I've got Asus GTX660 Ti OC and it locks up my pc in 5-15 minutes of playing. I have found that it was because of the overheat. It works normally before temp reaches 64 celsius. I returned my pc to the manufacturer to let them to diagnose the problem.

64 degrees is not even remotely close to a temperature that is considered overheating. in fact 64 would be considered very low under load. most reference cards go into upper 70s and even low 80s under load.

Are you running stock fan speeds on the gpus?if you have a hot or warm case in game try using evga precion and set the fans to run on auto so they should be on 40% and up,the stock drivers for me was running the fans at only 10% in game

I've got the same problem. Brand new build using gigabyte 660oc. Was using the 310 drivers. Playing darksiders 2 and borderlands 2 I get a random black screen the picture comes back and the frame rate is really low. I have to alt tab and back to get it to go back to normal. Gpu temps was 45c. Rolled back drivers to 306.97 problem still happens but I was able to play for 30 minutes before it happened. Running system with no overclocks.

[/quote] I had my fan control set on Auto in Asus GPU Tweak tool. Then i switched to manual and set 70% duty rate for fans. And it worked great this way, but i think it is not the way it shall work.

I think the temperature is not the problem. My Gpu has about 55-60°C , when I am playing. I think the nvidia driver has some problem with that card. Furthermore the black screen comes only by some games. I can play DotA 2 for hours without any blackscreen. Farcry 3 crashed after 15-60 minutes with a blackscreen. Mhh strange.

Also got one blackscreen just on desktop, with no game running, just a youtube video. It only could be a driver issue with that 310.00 version, the lower ones are in my opinion also invaded. It hasnt worked on my pc

The below fix helped me, but only apply it if the problem is accompanied by the following Windows system event (to check in Win7, go to Start->right-click Computer->Manage->Event Viewer->Windows Logs->System).

Again, only apply this when the above windows event is logged with the black screen and frame rate drop. I hope this helps.
