    Try again after the repaste and a general clean up. Cooling should not be that much of an issue maybe. After that try to reinstall your OS.

    Like Meaker said it seems your gpu is failing but try to clean the heatsink and repaste. It might fix it.

    You can download bios from below link. Please make sure to download correct update. You need to update EC before BIOS.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    I tried using the igp and the problems were certainly reduced. I'm also amazed at the performance of the thing!
    I will attempt the repaste and see if that has any effect.
    Assuming I follow all steps, aside from the obvious bricking, are there any other implications to using a Clevo BIOS rather than a Medion one? Apart from the loss of branding on bootup :D

    It's usually just a branding thing.

    If you're really worried about the temp, you can install hardware monitor (https://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html) and have it running while you game for a while and it'll show you the max temp your hardware hits. sometimes my synthetic benchmarking didn't push as hard as an actual game can.

    Just be aware peak values can be higher than long term sustained ones.

    The problem is that the game will often crash as it's loading, and doesn't ever get the chance to raise the temps. Am I more likely looking at a dead GPU? And if this is the case, why does it work perfectly with DX10 (and older) games?

    Crash during load could point to a vrm issue as sudden changes in load put them under stress.

    ok so tried the repaste and temps are cooler but the issues are the same :( I've also noticed various graphics artefacts in games (flashing coloured single point lights) that are present in all games just before the crash. HWmonitor didn't have the GPU temps any higher than 45C. Dead GPU? And if so, is there anything I can do about it?

    Set the nvidia drivers to run everything off the igp and dont use the dedicated chip. Or a new motherboard.
