Take off in a Ki-84C and seek out your favorite Two Hun (ie. P-38, 109Z, etc).
Line it up for a 700KPH attack in the 5:00 - 7:00 position, from about 11:00 high.
Keep the cockpit of the plane centered in your sights and fire all guns, at a range of about 50 - 75M.
When the magazines explode, your screen will go blank for about a second.
Repeat as required.
Note: make sure you have ammo when you do this, or it won't work. I.e. you'll see yourself hit the Two Hun and you'll vaporise when your own mags explode.

Funny, I can do that with my non-OCed 5700. No blank screen. Never had anything like that happen, actually.

Sounds like a driver or hardware stability issue. Maybe you should post in the Community Help forum.

I'm running the processors at low temperatures, so there's no risk of HW damage at 454MHz/1.21GHz. The reason the screen blanks out is simply an SLI anomaly, when two cards attempt to seek system RAM at one instant.

It's really not a HW issue thing, just an anomaly that I think is fun.
IMHO, SLI 7800s probably won't do this, because they have sufficient VRAM and they won't attempt to seek system RAM at the same instant.

I'm not saying that FB+AEP+PF isn't fun with X800s, or 5700s, or TNTs, or SLI Voodoo2s, or Tridents, or what have you.
Run what you brung and I'm in like Flynn.
