Hello, I was playing around with the EVGA precision X tool and was overclocking a bit.

I got a good 25-35 minutes of playtime, when suddenly, BF3 (The Game I was playing) froze, with a red screen on my monitor following a quick 10 seconds later.

Temps never exceeded 70c and stayed around 64-66c. (I was monitoring Temps every 5 minutes) (Fan was at 65%) (Power Target 116%, GPU Clock +94, Mem Clock +10)

Now, it hasn't happened since, (although a weird BF3 freeze while OC'ing did occur, but did not yield a red screen) and all I had to do was manually shut off my PC, then turn it on again.

I played some more BF3, now about 40 minutes (3rd playthrough, 1st was red screen, 2nd was standard freeze) with a little bit more modest OC. It hasn't happened and I'm pushing 1200mhz. Pretty pleased, getting average 67 fps.

So, the question is, is this a sign of a faulty GPU? Or just a sign of an OC gone bad? It's working fine, never had issues with the GPU. Is this red screen a sign that the GPU may have issues or something I can ignore?

PC Specs are as followed:

My GTX 560 did this when I overclocked it too far. Backing off the clock speed a bit fixed the problem.

Your card is probably fine.

Ah,

so the red screen is a sign that I am pushing my card too far?

Yes. If you worked up to your current clock in small steps, just back off the clock by ~20Mhz and try it again. Or add a little voltage if you have the head room and are comfortable with the added risk.
