Looks like your card is boosting to 1228 now and at stock it was 1243. As disappointing as that might be that's still a 91 OC from stock advertised speeds.
You can probably start inching back up to stock setting until it crashes again. At +45 I was stable but as soon as I went to +46 it started crashing Heaven, so even a 1MHz change can make a difference.

Yeah I don't know if I would RMA i mean I still getting a higher OC than what they advertised on box. Only thing that pisses me off is it not working out of the box ... reminds me of IBM.

Hi guys,

to all of you having problems with crashing DCUII TOP in benchmarks and games, you need to RMA your cards.
I bought my Asus DCUII TOP last week (scan.co.uk). For 2 days i was trying to test the card for the stability but sadly the card was crashing on Unigine Heaven, 3dmark Vantage, Battlefield 3 & Skyrim.
Playing BF3 & Skyrim about 15-20 minutes I got black screen (usually windows notify - display driver stopped responding and has recovered).
Running Vantage & Heaven i got an error - D3D11AppWindow::swap_window(): device removed.
I did some googling on "D3D11AppWindow::swap_window(): device removed" there seems to be a lot of people talking about it, but they all have some overclocks on their cards, I did not.
I havent touched the clock & voltages, this was straight out of the box. So I decided to undercklock the card, putting -28 MHz (core) solved the problem - no more crashing.

This is factory overclocked card and problem shouldnt occure on it
. This is not drivers problem too. I reinstalled operating system (win 7) but it didnt work out.
The card I received was faulty and I decided to RMA it. Card has been tested by Scan Team and fault has been found.
Now im waiting for replacement.

What Im trying to say - dont wait for new drivers, etc. The cards you've got are broken. Like I said those are factory overclocked cards and problems I mentioned shouldn't occure.
**** happens, thats it.

Good luck with your RMA.
Cheers

PS. sorry for my bad english (not my native language).

Got my TOP yesterday. I have a Phenom II 955, so my benchmarks aren't as high as you guys with i5's and i7's, but they are still pretty good and it is definitly a huge improvement over my 6870. I haven't tried OC'ing yet, but with my CPU and the performance I'm already getting, I don't think I need to OC. My core clock is boosting to 1267MHz.

My screen did go black on me once, but it wasn't under any load at the time and my PC did not crash. It's been fine since I restarted it.

Great temps! 32C at idle with 10% fan speed.

Played the BF3 campaign for about 1.5 hours last night at Ultra settings. Almost locked in at 60fps, with some minor dips down to 55fps. With my custom fan curve, my temps never went above 64C and my fan speed never went above 57%.

So far so good.

the only problem with my asus top is the red screen of death lol after removing asus gpu tweaker it hasn't occur again :/

I'm setting up a RMA. I'll do an advanced one through NE. I'm not underclocking my card to a speed my reference is capable of reaching provided it gets better cooling. ASUS can take this card and properly rebrand as a non-TOP version and put it back on the market for $10 less. I'll go back to using my MSI reference for the time being.

This is the best results I've gotten. Crashes at stock settings. If I underclock I get these results. RMA or keep?

Woah, ASUS I am dissapoint.

Got my TOP yesterday and decided to try Unigine since you guys had problems.. Guess what? Me too.. Wonderful.

Mine was like yours, also boosting itself up to 1247MHz ish instead of the advertised 1137MHz without using MSI Afterburner or anything to downclock it (Seriously? We have to downclock our hardware that not every consumer knows how to do?).


I have to bump down the coreclock -80 to get 1187MHz as my max boost core clock and that's not even the advertised speed which is 1137MHz.

I'm also getting pretty lame high temps on it mad.gif
75c in Unigine and that's with a custom fan profile at 70%. Also tried 100% which still kept it above 73c.. ugh

And yes, my case has proper airflow. 3 fans in front, 1 in back, 1 in top. The card also has at least 6 PCIe slots free space too.


A factory overclocked card overclocking way more than listed and causing it to crash, that's just WRONG.
It's obvious that ASUS has a problem here with the TOP models.

Not sure if I wanna return the card.


Update: Had to downclock my card with -130MHz to get the advertised speed of 1137MHz.

Just noticed something interesting, your GPU shows the Intel HD4000 on your benchmark screen. I'm not a Heaven expert but the scores look pretty good.

Damn, that's pretty horrible. You have to underclock it to 1187 to get it stable in Heaven?

Also, your card is most likely throttling at 70C+. Something seems wrong with the cooling. Most people here can keep temps at 60C with 60% fan and this is while OCed.

Sounds like ASUS has a serious QA issue with keplar boost pushing the cards pass their capability.
