GTX 670 is constantly crashing...

I built my system for the first time, everything worked great for the first few days. But when I started to play games such as Battlefield 3 and Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai, the video card seemed to crash. I get green particles on my monitor for about 3 seconds then the monitor seems to shut down. This happened when I updated the drivers to the latest one downloaded from nvidia. So I uninstalled the drivers and installed the drivers from the disk that the GPU came with. But the same problem persists.

Is it the problem with my Power Supply?? its 620W....

Anyone else having this problem?

my specs are

IN WIN BUC Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3

ASUS 24X DVD Burner

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3

ASUS P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Intel Z77

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Run Prime 95 (torture test) and see if your computer crashes.

If so, I'd guess it's actually a RAM issue. Manually set your RAM timings.

dont know if you have this card...some of them been recalled.
eVGA is said to have isolated a small batch of GeForce GTX 670 SC (SuperClocked), model# 02G-P3-2672-KR graphics cards, which were not properly screened through Quality Assurance (QA). The company worked with its partners to get these cards re-tested through the QA, which concluded that the GTX 670 SC is a well-designed product. EVGA assured current owners of the part in question, that should they notice issues with their products, they should get in touch with EVGA's Jacob Freeman (jacobf[at]evga[dot]com), who will assist in setting up an RMA. Further, EVGA assured that in such cases, the returned GTX 670 SC will be replaced with a faster GTX 670 FTW Edition.

I don't have the OC version of GTX 670.
I am running a stress test right now with the EVGA OC Scanner X (Stress Test-Furry Test). How long should I do run the test for? 10 min? 30?

My GPU temp is around 75 C, is that normal?

Fan speed is about 52% 1890 RPM

GPU load at around 90%

core:1045MHz
MEM 3004MHz
VDDC:1.125V
GPU Power 103.1 TDP

It doesn't matter whether or not it was factory OCed

My Gtx 670 isn't factory OC and it has Temperature problems and I RMA'd it.

Just rma your card, a lot of Kepler based card owners are reporting issues with their cards so you are not alone. Nvidia rushed through something that wasn't entirely finished or tested and problems mounted from there. Could have started if there were very tight deadlines that made it difficult for nvidia's engineers to complete testing and development. TSMC also is to blame for some of the troubles.

Yea, will RMA back to EVGA, since they have great customer service. And NewEgg will take a 15% re-stocking fee to themselves.

But a quick question, I am using a VGA to DVI converter to use the video card. Could that be the problem??

RMA requested to EVGA. They have great great customer service. Made things really easy and simple. Took like 5 minutes.

Will probably get all my cards from EVGA from now on...

I RMA'ed my card too. It wasnt runnin at stated speed and bf3 and other progs where locking up and crashing. Got the new one back and its FLYING. No complaints. I spent agies wonderig if it was BF3 or my settings but once looking at lots of forums and stuff i sumbled across a thread which advised reducing the clock made it run smoother. After doing that it did run smoother and passed heaven benchmarks. So that was the proof i need that it was the card and not my setup.

IF IT DONT WORK RMA!!!
....dont do what i did and go round the houses to find another problem that just isnt there :D
