I can't figure out if the card is just a bad card and needs an RMA or that for some reason it's running 150mhz above it's factory clocks even though I have it set to stock, and I should just lower it by 50-100mhz, I just find it very strange but maybe this is how boost works and my card is a dud, or my card thinks it's better than it actually is and is ramping up way past it's threshold.
I'm running the latest, stable drivers (301.42) although I've tried three with the same issue, I've reseated the card, tried another PCIE slot, tried running it at PCIE 2.0 instead of 3.0, unsure on what to do other than to just lower it as said, it's my first time ever using a nVidia card, I've only used AMD for 8 years now and it's not a great start . I've attached a picture showing that precision-x is marking 980mhz as my "boost" clock yet after playing Skyrim for 10 minutes before my drivers crashed, it got upto 1124, is it possible that I could just increase my voltage to fix this?
Thankyou in advance for any suggestions.
