I've had my card for 2 days... just found out it unstable at stock? - Page 2

In BF3, I only play 32 player. I'm using 295.73 drivers. It crashes with the stock settings sometimes, OCCP was surprisingly the only program that I don't recall ever crashing (but then again the maximum stress I did was 20 minutes). Furmark, Unigine Heaven, Crysis benchmark, and BF3 all crash sooner or later.

Right now, I upped the voltage to 1025mV (from the stock 1013mV) and I'm using stock frequencies. I have not witnessed a crash yet, at least in BF3. I'm done with stress testing since I'm fairly certain it's unstable.
I requested an RMA already; although the card works at slightly higher voltages, we all know that a card that is unstable at stock greatly reduces the resale value and along with chip degradation, this card might live to see having to use 1038 or 1050 mV with stock speeds someday.

I've had overclocks that were perfectly stable in every other game ( and benchmarks like Unigine Heaven, Metro 2033, Furmark) only to have them crash in BF3. I just run my card @ stock now when playing BF3.
