DFI T3EH8 "3F" code
need some help here. When I got up this morning my computer was frozen on the boot up screen with the error code 3F. There also seems to be some graphical corruption on the screen (green lines like bars).
I'm using the 11/05 BIOS and everything was set to stock speeds for the last month or so because of the heat here.
I tried to reset the CMOS, but it just goes to the full screen logo and then nothing happens, it just freezes to post error 3F.
Anyone know what the 3F code is? Should I try and different video card since there seems to be some graphical corruption?

No, I've only got a single GTX 260+ card in there.
Like I said everything was set to stock speeds.
I can't even get into the BIOS. It just freezes on the full screen logo screen.
What order should I start trouble shooting hardware?
Also, do you know what the code means Eva?
Edit : Does this sound like it would need an RMA?
