/sigh:grum: I figured out what was the culpret. I installed an arctic cooling accelero x2 HSF, and it was blowing hot air onto my northbridge, if i didnt open up a 3d application my pc woiuld nmot lock, but if i did soemthing would get hot, wouldn't properly cool and would lock and everytime i reboot the thing was still hot and lock.
Also my PSU was running a lot hotter when i installed the accelero x2. So i decided to go back to the stock HSF, The thermal pads that was connected to the accelero X2 was too sticky, i mean wayy too sticky and i had to cut some of them, off with a razor.
Then I heard a crack..........reinstalled stock HSF installed in my pc, boot up, Gltchy post, glithy screen and restarts when trying to boot into windows, HAHAHA. can you say PWND.
I just broke a $550 card. So hind sight 20/20 never using aftermarket hsf ever again screw it, i'll just deal with a lil noise.
Thx for all the feedback and suggestions though.

ow that's bad news. should remove the X2 after running it hot in PC, when those pads are warm they'll come off very easily
