Guys, if you have issues with crashing do this!

1. Set prefer maximum performance in Nvidia control panel.

2. Uninstall any monitoring software, use only one! clean the leftovers with ccleaner in registry.

3. Reboot, enter your desired oc/monitoring tool set the minimum voltage to its max value, set the fan to 60% + and try again.

Right now I would pick up the EVGA 4GB model. I don't know why they didn't put it on the 680 PCB, however.

no idea , seems like between the vram and lower heat and power consumption the 670 is the better choice over the 680 , the clocks are similar

Stock boost is 1228 for me and still keep crashing.
A minus 20 MHz in AB did the trick and the card is stable @1195 boost clock.

Eventhough completely disappointed with asus, I don't think I'll rma it just yet.
Availability is very low and I'm terrified of stacking without a card for weeks.

I'll give asus a couple of months to address this issue with a bios update or something, I just wish they are aware of it and someone is looking into it.

I don't mind for lower clocks as long as the card is stable at stock.


If any of you guys find anything remotely official addressing the issue, please post it here. sadsmiley.gif

The only other option I turned on was triple buffering as I read it helps when combined with vsync. FXAA is off and I used the in-game AA.
With vsync off I do notice tearing but it's very smooth with it on for me. I've read various reports of people having stuttering issues using adaptive vsync.

thank you man, i'll try this. As far as i understood, we really need Vsync on to be able to play this game.

Look guys, it sucks that some people got bad cards, or that their system is messy with leftovers of various monitoring software causing crashes.

When people read this thread and start claims like "oh after reading this thread I know that 6 out of 10 cards are bad". That's just a blatant lie / speculation. Show me the number of cards sold and show me the number of proven cases of bad cards before making such ridiculous claims.

I would like to say that I had a card that was running at 705MHz, it seemed to be boosting itself up to 1.1~. At first I was getting the Red Screen all the time because I was running SpeedFan, I was not running anything in conjunction with it (no GPU-z, no Afterburner, Precision, GPUTweak, nothing). Here it would Red Screen just at idle even. It was SpeedFan alone causing the majority of the problem. Then while gaming all night and this morning it would not crash at all, I assume that gaming will not make it red screen. However everytime I run 3DMark11 (sans the first time, while running SpeedFan also, go figure), it crashes. 3DMark11 reported the card running at 705 MHz.

I'm sure there are fixes around, but honestly I shouldn't have to do that. I'm RMA'ing the card, getting a new one in 2 weeks or so and then if I still have the problem I'll try fiddling around with it.

Even with all that said, and my problems with it, I would still suggest this card to anyway. Its still one of the best performing cards out there. Just seems like there is a bad batch running around.

Hey guys, first post here but I've been following this thread as I'm a new owner of a TOP.

I got mine in yesterday and I'm getting some lackluster results on Heaven that I was hoping someone could help me out with. I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to high end graphics and benchmarking, so hopefully I've just got something setup wrong.

As you can see in the below image, I'm getting a boost up to 1306 at stock, which seems great. Heaven runs just fine without crashing. Unfortunately you can see that my score and FPS are extremely low compared to a lot of them that have been posted here. Any idea what would cause this? I've left my card completely stock other than changing the fan profile. My system is a 3570K at 3.8 Ghz and 16 GB of RAM. I've got the latest Nvidia drivers installed and it shows I'm running at PCI-E 3.0, so I'm not sure what else it could be.

Thanks for any help/input you can provide!

Alright if the 670 DCUII is in stock I'll get it <3
Will this handle 1440p fine? With gaming?
What if I do 120hz?
