It happens only when Gaming i could load the hell out of the Card for hours and i get 0 Errors, i contacted EVGA they had me to a ton of Driver cleaning programs and re installing of the new Drivers but it didn't work, even did a Safe mode clean and install also made sure not to install Nvidia sound Drivers as they said it could be the problem .

  1. i have that mb and a 550ti card..running windows 8 and have the same bios and the newest drivers and dont have any errors.
    few things is make sure your java is updated as your flash. nvidia and java (older) had issues. make sure the video card in the top slot and is seated. the mvp software and chipset that bonds the intel ipgpu and a nvidia or amd card is very buggy. when i tried to run it it just blue screen and locked windows up on me. myself i would uninstall it in safe mode then reboot and go into the bios. set the gpu as the first boot device. make sure the mvp/dule monitor is set to off in the bios. i would then run gpu-z make sure the card running at 2@16 speed. if the card not go back int othe bios change the pci bus speed from auto to 2.0 mode. then restest your system. if it still giving you issues i would see if you had another video around to see if it the card or the mb.
