You overvolted the GPU? Most Nvidia cards can take a bit of overvolting, but it depends on what you overvolted it to. Please give specs and as much info as you can for good feedback.

i also have an msi gtx560-ti twin frozr II golden edition card. i tried OCing but unfortunately its still unstable on BF3. even a slight change of core clock will crash on BF3.

so what i did is i just set it down to its stock clocks w/c is 900mhz core but OCed the memory to 4600mhz. now i think its much better. :)

well sir the card wont even let my pc turn on i have to take off the card so it could turn on. well what i tried is i disconnected a pci-e power connector and tried to turn it on and it worked but whenever i connect the other pci-e it wont turn on its like it has a short circuit . it doesnt even last a second its only on for like half a second

Yep, sounds like you damaged/bricked the graphics card. If you've had it for less than a year as you say, then try to have it repaired/replaced by the manufacturer through the warranty.

By the way, "didnt even touch the voltage settings well just by one point" means you did touch the voltage settings. :sol:
