First of all, did you find out if your card is faulty? Make sure you find out before doing any BIOS flashing, if that's what your thinking. AFAIK, you aren't doing anything wrong with your OC attempts other than overestimating your cards potential.
I don't know if it's faulty, but it's unstable with stock voltages and stock clocks.
I was able to get stable with 1100mV, 875/2000, and under 55°C. I played Crysis 2 for about 45 minutes, passed some 3DMark 11 runs, passed a few runs of Unigine Heaven, and passed OC Scanner for 45 minutes. Usually those programs would crash within a minute of testing. I don't plan on keeping it at that setting 24/7, probably only when I'm gaming. With those settings, how long do you guys think this card will last?
Should I exchange it for another GTX 570? Chances are, I'll probably get one that clocks better and is at least stable at stock.
