I would definitely recommend staying with that card just maybe you got a bad apple maybe just an rma. I ordered a second one for sli an hour ago so I'm excited to try it out.

I made some progress. I went in search of some forums and found quite a few GTX 670 owners with the driver crash issue. One guy suggested that he believes that most factory OC cards are affected. I set out to prove his theory and found that if I downclock my card to stock GPU frequency (915Mhz), the card and driver appears to be stable. Heaven 4.0 ran for over 20 minutes when compared to the 2 minutes before black screen and driver crash when left at factory OC.

Temps were much lower on the factory OC run (@63) before it crashed after 2 minutes, compared to a maximum of 73 when card was downclocked to stock speed and NO crash, after more than 20 minutes. This just proves that temperature is not the cause of my problems.

The card is going back to the supplier tomorrow. If I get it back with no fault found there will be hell to pay. MSI messed up with the initial OC models in my opinion

What nvidia driver version are you using? Are you getting the 0x116 TDR failure BSOD?

It's in nvidia control panel somewhere under the anti aliasing settings by Max pre rendered frames.

Where did you get your card from? My second card will be here later today I'll report back the outcome with two of these cards in sli.

I found this on the 0x116 issue. http://bsodanalysis.blogspot.com/2012/07/0x116-videotdrerror.html?m=1

I too have this card and have never had any issues. I have the power limit set to 114% with an overclock of +80 on the core and + 220 on the memory. I'm sure I could do more on the memory but this is just a quick overclock I was able to obtain.

One thing I am confused about though is that its supposed to be +220 on the memory clock but in GPU-Z, its showing a default clock of 1502 on the memory and the current clock only reads 1612, not 220 over the default clock. Any ideas as to why this is?

Ya so multiply x4 for your full clock speed. The off set works like say stock 1502 X 2 =3004 + 220 offset = 3224x2= 6448. the off set doubles the clock speed so your actually over clocked 440 over stock clock. That's why it's double Data rate (ddr). I dunno why it's x4 though. I was reading about it but really don't understand the logic.

it is work, gpu clock is 1349 stable but temp is so high 80°C it is so much...
can anyone help me? sorry for english...

All Kepler based cards throttle off the Kepler Boost @ 70c. You need to get your temps down.

Well I'm running sli both cards over clocked +41 and +451. Now and my top card is hitting 72 degrees in valley and heaven after 10 mins fans at 50 percent and I'm not throttling at all. Even if it would, it would only lower it 13 mhz increments which in game would only be a 3 or 4 fps u wouldn't notice it. 80 degrees though should definitely throttle. I'm thinking if you don't have a fan blowing in on the side over your card your temps will be much higher. If possible find a way to get outside air straight into the card.

Incorrect! Throttling starts @ 70c.

If the card gets too hot, then the Kepler Boost value will be throttled down below its true maximum in 13MHz increments. The first thermal throttle point is at 70C, then 80C, then 85C and lastly at 95C. Here's a graph for easy reference:

That's fine it's not that I don't believe you (I even searched the topic) but I'm telling u I been at 71-72 and it's stayed solid at 1228 boost. It could also be msi has different bios settings to allow a higher temp or maybe it's because I have any possible setting set to max performance or precision X could have something to do with. Idk what it comes down to is 80 degrees with this card and twin froze 4 cooler is way too hot for a single card. Even if you have decent cooling. My case is very crammed now with two cards a hyper 212+ and wires two hard drives. I don't seem to have an issue. Btw sli is damn awesome lol this craps all over crossfire (which I came from) . Just for the fact stuttering isn't present. I see no different e in quality but a huge jump in performance.
