Im not sure the windforce bios allows for extra voltage, it would just be to raise your power target which isnt necessary very often on stock voltage.

If you just bought it and can return it to a retail store, that might be your best bet, otherwise try to isolate the issue and see when it happens so that you can explain it to evga for rma. if its not a pain and you have a good clocker
just try to avoid that fan speed like another member mentioned.

is the difference in base and boost clock speed between different 770 brands important?
Is also the OCing better with a specific card or they all the same?
Finally, which is the best in cooling?
I saw reviews and benchmarks, and want to get answers from this thread because it's about 770.
So to answer your questions.....
1: Honestly the boost clock isnt too big of a deal since most will overclock easily into the 1200mhz range, many even do 1300mhz. Also boost clock is just a guarantee of the clock you will get as Kepler cards sometimes overclock beyond the advertised boost clock on their own without manually changing a thing.
2: They are basically all the same. I have seen reviews on msi lightning cards that dont OC past 1300mhz. What WILL allow for better overclocks are to make sure you buy a card that the software volt mod works, I am not up to date as to which cards have it working currently but msi and evga I think were 2 of them. Asus DOES not allow for the software mod.
3: The aftermarket heat pipe coolers are pretty much VERY close, close enough where you can just get the one that looks best to you.
