i am new to this my self but i had a similar sort of problem and was told to try tw things first of all reseat the card and turn off the onboard sound mine works ok now so one of those helped me ?
i have also noticed another member saying about the card and heat sink not being in contact propery being a few mill out maybe a warp in the card is causing a short when it gets hot
these are only sujjestions but maybe they might ring a bell somwhere
