GTX 760 4GB Faulty card maybe?

I've been using a gtx 760 2gb card for a while now and its been working great. I just upgraded to a gtx 760 4gb from gigabyte the OC edition. I installed the new card and everything seemed okay, but whenever I try to startup an intensive game like BF3 or BF4 I can't get past the loading the screen and my entire PC will just freeze. Could it be a faulty new card or possibly the fact that its overclocked? I usually don't buy OC'd hardware.

Setup:
16gb gskill
g1.sniper m5 mobo
i5-4670 3.4.ghz
1100w psu

  1. Possibly faulty hardware. First check drivers etc are up to date, card is installed correctly, maybe reinstalling games too. Factory OC's should be okay.
  2. make sure your mb has the newest bios updates.
  3. I'm currently using the beta drivers 330.41 for bf4. I'll try the most recent drivers and see if thats the difference. I can play spleunky just fine but that isn't nearly as intense as bf3.

    If those don't work, roll back.
  5. I installed the 327.23 drivers doing a clean install and it continued to do the samething. I think I'm just going to RMA the card at this point.

    My mobo bios is uptodate with F7.

    That seems like a good idea if you have done everything you can(without voiding the warrenty). It's a pain when this happens. I had to RMA my second Gigabyte GTX 670. It was originally repair back at the factory after having defects or something so I thought it would be a good deal. It was $150 cheaper than other 670's in the store and was the only identical model to the one I had currently. Luckily I could return it but the wait was annoying.

    Yea its really annoying. Put my gtx 760 2gb card back in and everything working perfectly. Oh well I suppose. Thanks for the help.
