Hi there brandonandon!
Maybe you could ask your friend if you can test your 670 in his setup?
Cheers!

UPDATE:

Recently I upgraded to the SG08. Experimented in overvolting my GPU, raising it to 1.200 V (which is supposedly safe). Then brought it down to safe levels again. Started having all sorts of problems. Clean installed latest EVGA BIOS, drivers, Precision X. Nothing. I honestly figured I had fried my card. Tried the included 600W PSU, and everything is fine now...

So...I'm confused. Some people use these little SFX PSU's to run 3770K's w/ 570's, which requires more wattage than my system. Did I just get a bad PSU? Or are they not capable of handling the load? I would like to get the 450W SFX Strider Gold for a future mod I'm looking at doing, but my recent experience is a bit disconcerting. Still testing OC potential, but need to remount my cooler as my current mount is pretty bad.
