I should clarify the heat, It peaks at 48C at desktop.

Running the game at the tick just below Quality, it would stay rather steady at about 63C, and peak at 68C.
Bringing it to the tick just above Speed it would stay steady at 58C and peak at 62C.

It's teh Video signal cutting out, but the sound continuing in the background. There is no crash to desktop, and no video driver recovery. It requires a reboot, either by hitting the reset button or by holding down the power button until it shuts off, and then rebooting as per normal.

I find it hard to believe that it's a dying/defective video card as I can play Dawn of War 2 at high settings without a hitch, and that at least to me, seems to have a bit more going on on-screen at any moment than when this issue occurs.

It seemd that turning the video quality down a tick to alleviate the issue, until I started The Ultimate Klingon mission series, when it occurred again as soon as I got inside the Klingon Reasearch facility on H'ataria.
