Hi guys, add me to the list of people who got a bad Extreme. Mine pretty much can't run more than 10 seconds in Overclock mode before it crashes to desktop. When I lower the clock speed it can work okay and finish benchmarks. This one was an early batch Newegg card, so it's probably one of the ones which was mixed up Regular vs. Extreme. I have verified the Power Limit is 125% on it with MSI Afterburner so it has a Regular BIOS and not an Extreme one out of the box. These are not cheap video cards and Gigabyte should not be screwing things up like this. I'm sorry I didn't just wait for the Strix to become available and got that one instead. This one is going back to Newegg, I'm praying that they will be OOS on Extreme when my RMA is received and they refund me instead of sending me another one so I can just buy the Strix.
