How are you changing the frequencys? EVGA Precision type programs or have you actually changed the bios file prior? And what is the exact history of this card ? Did it work until today etc etc ?

And when you load the EVGA precision it shows all the correct clocks and speeds? And you've messed with new drivers and old ones, and tried new games and watched the utilization and clocks during the 3d applications?

when you revert back to stock settings with EVGA Precision after being unstable you have to restart you rig so the card isnt in safe mode any more! (400Mhz core clock) hope that sorts it smile.gif
