Don't know much about Gainward. I looked them up on wikipedia and it claims they have good overclockability, but there is no reference for this statement.

Aside from that, all of the Titans at ocuk have 3 year warranties while the Gainward is the only one with 2 year.

Good price though, will hunt around for some Gainward opinions and see if it might be a good candidate for my next Titan.

Not faulty, mine was doing the same thing.. I made similar posts here.. it turns out it was the cable connecting from my card to my monitor. It would only show in 3dmark11 and 06, and the reason I could see it was because those benchmarks ran at a lower resolution.

Your cable could be fine, but if you are using an adaptive cable such as DVI to HDMI then also using an adapter to connect to one of the components then you might get these problems.

try connecting your PC to a different monitor or HDTV if you can.. and also try a different cable after if that doesn't work.

No manufacturers cards have more overclockability than others, its all luck especially with reference based cards.

The reason I said Gainward is because of the special deal OCUK have with them for RMA's.

If you want to get the cheapest one you will have to shop outside the UK http://www.mindfactory.de/search_result.php?search_query=gtx+titan&x=-1300&y=-146

It's a cool deal, but difficult to consider:

Super fast RMA for 2 years vs. Regular/slow RMA for 3 years

I'm not actually sure which is the better option.

I'm quite nervous to buy a Titan now given it's such a crap shoot lottery. You have no clue if you're getting a good quality board, good overclockability, okay throttling. Lot's of hassle and money to keep rolling the dice for a good card :-/

Also oc'ing the memory does make a big difference with the titan. At least in benchmarks it does. It seems to make a bigger impact than the core speed.

That stock oc memory speed is crazy high. If I had to guess I would think that would be the problem but I can't imagine them releasing a card at that speed without knowing it's stable. From being in the titan owner's thread that is a higher than average memory clock. I can't imagine they were able to cherry pick the memory chips.

I wasn't talking about the GPU clock, I was talking about the memory clocks. Some people can only do +100 some can do +600 or more. It is much more random than the GPU is. That's why I think it's crazy for Zotac to set it that high when I doubt they are really checking if they are stable.

Edit: Also I still think OP should keep the card and just turn down the memory clock. What are you going to replace it with? Another Titan that can't push super high memory OC? They are all built the same and no one should believe Zotac when they say all of theirs can OC that high. They aren't cherry picking them for people. Unless you paid a lot more for it than a regular EVGA or Asus then your only going to get the same thing when you change it. Sure you will be playing the lottery again but people can do that forever and never get a golden card. You may even end up with one thats worse.

I agree you with you completely, Zotac is not cherry picking nor testing these cards, and it's ludicrous that they're advertising such memory speeds. This card is a reference card, and it works perfectly well at reference speeds. I don't believe this card is defective at all, but it definitely cannot do the speeds stated on the box.

Depending on which retailer you use for price benchmarking, I paid a maximum of GBP 100 pounds extra for this card over and above a reference Titan from eVGA/Gainward/ASUS. That's a bit much I feel for a card which cannot hit the speeds which that price premium entails.

Since the card goes back on Monday, I've got 2 days to play around with it before sending it back. I've just now flashed the RR09SS vBIOS and am testing them out. They seem to work great! No throttling, and decent Boost speeds, although no mem OC. Am running 3DMark11 on loop, hunting for any artifacts. I think once I get a new card, I'll put the RR09SS on it straight away and go to town.
