I know it's a PITA to maybe have to go through all the Driver Uninstall BS on her computer now too, but if the card functions on her computer fine, then we can at least rule out the remote chance you got two BAD cards, it might also isolate if her PSU works fine with the card, maybe try a swap of PSU's to at least test her PSU and the Card on your system.

But if all the same issues pop up then obviously you've just got BAD AMD juju-karma working against you, and it's either time to give up and just buy a 570 or some crappy nVidia card or call an exorcist.

lol

I guess it will be a good start to do it again because I couldn't think of something else. Your motherboard with two cards compatibility issues? Yet to see one here.

Reset CMOS, load BIOS Optimized Defaults then go to configure the boot drive. This will rule out the OC instability.

That last bit is probably the first time I've actually "lol'd" during this whole ordeal. Not to mention my co-workers giving me the typical look that screams "I want to know whats funny! Include me! Please!"

That was my last resort. I was going to play through a few more troubleshooting ideas then do just this. She has the exact same build as I do, albeit having a P8Z68-V LE board and an Antec Earthwatts 650w, so I should find out very easily if its either the card or a PSU situation. Of course, that is if it isnt my sound card oddly causing the conflict.

I'll try that, but it seems kind of odd that an OC instability would cause it, when it's been stable for about a month and a half. But crazier things have happened!

Ken, can't thank you enough for constantly following this along and contributing as much as you have.

All of you in the OCN community, you're the best.

Even though I don't think it's the PSU because I think it would just crash, not lag.

Ps; I had an old MSI 550 watt with my q6600/5850 build and whenever I'd OC my video card my PC would crash upon stressing it.
I saw you responded to his post regarding reinstalling Windows, but you didn't mention trying another PCIe slot. That would be my next guess if you haven't tried that already, although faulty PCIe slots seem rare, it's been known to happen.

In my case, my PSU has to blow inwards, which would make putting the card almost an inch from the hot air blowing from the PSU. I will try it, but it can't stay there unless I get a new case or cut a hole in the bottom of the one I have and flip it over.

The fan on your PSU should be intake (I'm pretty sure all PSU fans are), i.e. with your set up, the air should be sucked in from the case and pushed out the back of the PSU (and therefore the back of the case). If this is true, your GPU should be ok on a lower PCIe slot, though obviously still not ideal.

Ah, okay..it just seems like every time I place my hand in front of that fan, it blows hot air - but yeah, makes sense to be intake. Just...weird. Either way, Im going to try it - hell, not much to lose at this point, short of launching the thing into lower orbit.

Okay...nothing worked.

At this point, I'm spent..really. I more or less just want to say "AMD, I yield. Your CPU's kept me up at night, and your GPU carries your cursed banner in my home."

Nvidia, Im coming home.

I guess you have deleted the BCD and reformated?
