Note, My card is the 2GB version rather than the 4GB version, but is identical in all other respects.

I'm having similar problems to those which the OP described re. the crashing of his 680 in BF3. The only difference is my card is a Galaxy GTX680 GC 2GB.

Rig:
MSI Z77-G45
3570K
Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz
PC Power and Cooling MK II Silencer 750W
Crucial M4 128GB
Windows 7 Premium 64bit
Galaxy GTX680 GC 2GB.

I can't do an entire run through of Unigine Heaven or 3DMark13 without crashing to desktop. BF3 (which I play nightly) will randomly crash to desktop. Borderlands 2 would also crash randomly.

However, other applications run just fine. Civ V doesn't seem to exhibit any problems, and Folding at Home seems to run just fine.

I run all applications at Ultra, AA turned all the way up, resolution 1920x1200. Temps never climb beyond the mid to high sixties using the stock fan profile. Card is at stock clocks. I found that if I upped the fan profile a bunch (to the point where the card was screaming like a jet) it caused fewer crashes.

Here's the kicker. My card just returned from RMA (My Thanks to Andrew Fischer, your friendly local Galaxy Rep, for expediting that). I was experiencing the problem described, which is what initiated the RMA. After installing the new card in my system and installing the latest WHQL drivers, I'm experiencing the same problems.

The thing is, I'm pretty confident it's not the rest of my system. My original 680 exhibited the same problem on my old system (M5A97, 1055T, Vengeance 1600Mhz). I upgraded to my Intel platform a month ago, and while I was at it, did a fresh install of Windows. Also, while my card was away for RMA, I was using my backup card in my main rig (XFX 6950 reference) and it performed admirably without a single failure, again, playing BF3 every night.

When I get home sometime tonight I plan on putting the card into my old X6 system, and I'll also try it in my FM1 HTPC to see what it does there.

Now, I want to iterate that throughout the entire RMA process Galaxy was very easy to deal with, and the fact that they have a rep browsing the main forums is fantastic. I'm not here to slag Galaxy in any way. I just want to get this problem fixed so that my $450 graphics card is stable and I can game without problems.

Any insight? The Galaxy Rep is looking into it, but I want to increase my chances of a successful resolution.

Man I really don't know where to begin, you could take a look at testing your ram, and running prime 95 for a few hours with something like evga scanner x running to get everything up to temp. I have not had an issue with games crashing any more. I cant for the life of me figure out what the ultimate cause of my crashes were. I only know that they are in the past.

I'm going to try increasing Vcore a little, see what that does.
