Ok, I just built my new system about a week ago. I had no problems the first 3 days. Then my gtx started to overheat quickly when playing TERA and my pc would turn off. I corrected that issue using evga's precisionx software to set my gpu fan at maximum speed when it gets hot. No problems for one day. Now I am getting the dreaded nvlddmkm.sys bsod. Ive resintalled the drivers old versions, new versions and even the beta driver they have. I even did a clean install of my os and the issue still occurs. I get the BSOD right after the windows is loading screen.

I also tried checking if it was the ram. Those checked out. I didnt try putting into the other pci slot. I only had it in the 3.0 slot.
I am thinking about RMA=ing it to get a new one.

Here are my pc specs:

Confirm the fan is actually spinning, and that a clump of dust or other blockage does not exist. If the card is overheating with the fan set to default auto and no OCing on your part then it is probably defective.

The fan was spinning. I just got a new card and it is working fine. I sent the old card back in. I'm keeping an eye on the fan speed and temp while I game but no issues so far. Thanks
