The post by Ken1649 explains what you need to do.

The driver seems okay.

Your bios settings and ram configuration shouldnt be causing the card issues.

PSU seems good...

Do you have your GPU fans set to 100% or is it on auto?

Is the card crashing to desktop or is it a BSOD? If BSOD, can you remember the code given?

My, aren't you coping a hiding on your welcome new member post doh.gif Im sorry for that, sometimes the members here are somewhat embarrassing frown.gif

Just crash to desktop. Not BSoD....btw just bought a z68 on amazon, should arive tomorrow. so it would be comfortable to overclock now. My fan is in auto, i set it all back to default. Still crashes to desktop very occasionally on bf3 and on batman arkham asylum. Im pissed at it, cuz i expect it to work on stock settings...but hopefully itll be fixed with my new ivy bridge capable motherboard... Ill post what happens after..

Find it difficult to understand how a motherboard can cause crashes to desktop. It could happen if connection from the powersupply to the card and to motherboard is bad or not getting enough power. Or bad PCIe slots. Have you tried different slots?

 

If this only specific to certain game/BF3, maybe that's the cause not the motherboard. A motherboard will effect CPU overclokability not graphical issues.

 

Or the crashes also happen in 2D clocks while browsing or in desktop?

If its a graphics crash it won't be the motherboard.

Run memtest86 and OCCT to make sure the stability issue is the gpu.

i only have 1 slot for the video card....I'll set it up with the motherboard....then run the test with the new motherboard just in case if I ever had a bad slot..

What is OCCT?

Is your cpu or ram overclocked? If not, then don't worry about OCCT. That is a program that stress tests cpu and ram. It has nothing do with your graphics card. If you have a CTD (crash to desktop) then it is usually a software/driver problem. Hardware problems would cause BSOD although there are some instances when a driver can cause BSOD as well.. Do you have the latest patch installed for BF3? I heard some people were running into problems with that. Another thing to try.. Open nvidia control panel. Click Manage 3D Settings. Click Program Settings tab. Select BF3. Change power management mode to Prefer Maximum Performance.

Other than mentioned above as possible cause to the crashes, if you have too many softwares such as Afterburner and maybe Gigabyte OC Guru and NV Control Panel might have been conflicting each other.

The Gigabyte 580 OC can do higher clocks and shouldn't be a problem. Good lucks.
