I get the Windows pop up saying this driver stopped responding and recovered successfully. Does it in games and synthetics. No issues in 2D though.

It has been tested in 3 completely different systems on both Windows 7 and 8 and the issue is the same. Card is only like 1.5 years old but since I didn't register it soon enough it doesn't quality for the lifetime warranty.

Not sure if its worth trying to send out to fix or if you guys had any ideas or if I should just chuck it?

are you running any OC/monitor software like precision x ?

do you clean install your divers and then driver sweep nuke the old ones?

is the card getting enough power?

is the card getting enough air flow?

do you know what the state of the power ripple within your psu?

point is we need more info about the situation.

Maybe you could tell us about the temperatures it's operating under when on load, and also what voltages it's using for the OC. Did you try higher voltages to stable, or even lower? Need information.

Vram Demand is dependant on more than just being a modern game... you can play modern games with 2gb vram. you cannot prove to me otherwise as there is no resolution or graphical setting that has been referenced those things remain variable almost indefinitely ans this doesnt scale linearly

Completely fresh install of the o/s and drivers

Yes, it has been tested on 2 different power supplies including a 1kw that is currently powering a dual E5 Xeon/R9 390 system without issue.

Airflow is fine

No clue about how to test the ripple

I assume you've checked to make sure the heat sink fan is actually moving an isnt seized

next would be making sure the fan ramp up accordingly

If you can without a reasonable doubt eliminate heat from being the issue, that you are left with the option to Attempt RMA.

In my experience i've never had to actually register anything that i've RMA'd as long as it meets usually one of two criteria.

If the product is still within warranty whatever that warrenty might be, and you can prove that you purchased the card in question
by still having the box+ recipe there should not be an issue with RMA.

If there is Cause a stink to get you elevate to a manager or an actual tech representative.
With PNY being a Company with headquarter on the east coast of the US. i don't think it should be really that hard to get ahold of something that can issue an RMA.

oh I can definitely hear the cards fans when it ramps up lol. With the fan set to auto it was maxing out around 82C while running 3dmark.

PNY only offers a 1yr warranty if you don't register the card and lifetime if you do. I still have the original receipt though. Guess it doesn't hurt to contact them anyways

Seems to be an odd way to quantify this. why does the date you register or if you register at all for that matter effect the duration of their warranty.

I have seen this before. Make sure the thermal paste is touching all four corners of the die, if it is not, it can crash under a small load as you've seen.
Make a custom fan profile so it doesn't hit 70C.
Finally, underclock the core a bit say 40mhz using AB or something. Over time with heat the cores can degrade. This with the poor paste job could have weakened the die a bit. See if that gets you anywhere. It would make a nice gift to one of your less fortune friends if all this checks out and its working okay. I have an old 660 that does this and I gave it to my brother. I just have to make sure AB is starting up on his PC all the time so it clocks the core down a bit to keep it from crashing. thumb.gif
