It looked like the solution involved getting EVGA to replace it because of some recall. I haven't heard of an official recall, but if there were a run of bad cards, you may have gotten one of them.

Are you running at stock speeds or overclocking?

Stock speeds.

If EVGA's stress test through OC Scanner X is causing you to blue screen at stock speeds, something is not right. There is no reason you should be getting these issues with benchmarking software.

It's obvious stressing the card is a problem and something can't handle the added load.

What is the make and model of your power supply? If you had a video card in the system before getting the 670, what was the make and model?

The PSU is an Corsair AX850 and I have no vga before the 670, I was using the P8Z68-V PRO onboad video.

I thought that the message that came with popup window maybe can suggest some software (driver) problem...

"The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue.

The application must close.
Error Code 7"

Your PSU has more than enough power. To attempt to rule out an issue with the PSU, try another set of 6-pin power connectors. If that doesn't fix it...

Did you test your RAM yet?
If you have faulty RAM, it can cause corrupted installations.

If you run the Windows Memory Diagnostic and the RAM checks out, try re-installing the Nvidia driver and trying again.

If none of this works, you have a good argument to take to EVGA.

Is your 670 the EVGA Superclocked version by any chance?

I own two EVGA GTX 670s of the exact same model (02G-P4-2670-KR).

I have had to RMA one of my 670s for being faulty, but before you RMA yours, you should do some further testing.

*Have you checked all the cables?

*Have you properly wiped any previous graphics drivers from you system?

*Have you re- installed the latest Nvidia Drivers? (301.42)

*Have you monitored your GPU temperatures to rule out overheating?

*Have you tried the 670 in your secondary PCIe slot on your motherboard? (This will determine whether your motherboard is at fault or not).

Yes to all these questions.

I've started a RMA process.

The problem is that I do not live in US.

So, it will be expensive and slow.

Where did you buy it from?

If you bought it from a retailer you should of RMA'd through them.

I bought from Amazon, but the problem is that I do not live in US. I bought when I was in US traveling.

So I dont want to return because I will be without the vga...
