I'm posting this here because it's related not only to the GPU in question. So it all started with the "driver stopped working and has recovered" during TF2, well I said to myself it's a problem with the servers, the game and went to Just Cause 2. Three minutes into the game, crash. Well it might be some old saves and other driver that I've been playing couple of weeks ago. Then Company of Heroes crash to the desktop just when the menu has to come up. Verified the cache of the game - Steam - integrity of the files, the same. As I've been reading a lot about GTX570 biting the dust when overclocked, I have the EVGA SC version I was starting to feel like one of the, maybe 5-10%, unlucky customers. Tried with different drivers, downclocking the card to stock, uninstalling afterburner but things got worse, artifacting and crashing in every game I tried. The last thing I tried was to pull the card out, take a look at it and reseat. Connected the monitor to the second DVI port and bring the CPU back to stock (it was OCed to 4.2 GHz turbo). Now it's working as it should be, stock clocks for the SC 797/1594/1950. Tried a few games, some game benchmarks and 3DMark11 and everything is working. What is it? What can I expect? The OC on the CPu had some bad influence? Been running these setings since almost a month with no issues.
