If this is happening when you OC the video card, drop the OC. See if that changes anything.

I also get the black screen occasionally. I seem to get it more now than the GSOD, I also loose any audio that was playing through the speakers when it occurs.

I really don't understand error messages from the event logs, I can build pc's and maintain and oc etc... but this stuff is over my head maybe it is relevant.

I only have the following error messages for when I crash:

Unloading the performance counter strings for service WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.

and

The performance strings in the Performance registry value is corrupted when process Performance extension counter provider. The BaseIndex value from the Performance registry is the first DWORD in the Data section, LastCounter value is the second DWORD in the Data section, and LastHelp value is the third DWORD in the Data section.

But only a few application errors...(not enough to tie them to the crashes)

Don't know what I should be looking for, but most of my errors come from running demanding games, though I have had a few errors from running simple applications like itunes causing a black screen. Thing is with the instability, I get errors at stock clocks and when OC'ed, I am now running with my gfx under-clocked and it has been a bit more stable though still throws up errors.

(I found a repair system performance index fix that I have just tried, so maybe they are irrelevant.)

Disable HDMI audio in the System Devices panel. See if that helps.

I just tried that will see how it works out and im glad someone else is getting a black screen crash now i can say im not insane lol.

Tried HDMI audio and had no change. I've tried almost every fix I can find on various forums to no avail. Only thing I haven't tried is RMA...

Personally I've had the GSOD occur during light GPU use, such as Rocketdock's animations or iTunes' CoverFlow. What I tried was disabling my GPU-related startup applications one by one, until I found out what the culprit was. And well, turns out it was CCC (Cat 9.12 Hotfix).

Prior to this, I had hand-modified a CCC profile with higher 2D clocks and voltages, as I had been getting the GSOD randomly and heard about this being a fix. And for a while, it most certainly did work. That is of course, until I started getting the GSOD a few seconds after any measure of GPU usage.

Since disabling CCC from startup, I haven't seen the GSOD at all. Whether I'm doing some heavy gaming, or simply browsing through my CoverFlow playlist, it runs as it should. Though I do have a nagging hunch that disabling my CCC profile will cure this problem of mine.

In any case, I only stated this since in the OP's first post, he mentioned faulty RAM modules being a likely cause of GSOD occurrences during light GPU usage. Not saying that may not be the case, but my situation also presents another possibility that may not require an RMA after all.

I have had the GSOD 2 times. Each time, I checked my memory on my card (before I put heat sinks on it) and they burnt my finger. Checked the memory on my V2 and things were at 100C!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Installed some ram sinks, fixed. My RAM now stays below 70C
