Thanks for the reply IRQ Conflict

Only time will tell!!!
High temps could definitely cause you graphics card to start doing odd things. Hopefully that sorts your issues out. Make sure the heatsink is clean. I am not familiar with evga precision x usefullness, but you could also try msi afterburner to make a custom fan profile and check GPU usage/temps/fan speed/etc if you think it may be a problem.
