Either you are having driver issues or you could have cooked a part of the GPU, running games and benchmarks are 2 VERY different things, Crysis on DX10 will scorch an improper OC with enough juice and/or heat.
I've had it at 2300 stable since the day I installed it in my computer. It was perfectly fine, artifact free, in black ops, bad company 2, left 4 dead 2, and crysis. I never even tried OC scanner until today.
I said "stock memory" twice and "reset" in afterburner in the same paragraph. I suppose that isn't clear enough...
Back in the day I flogged quite a few cards through nights of 3dmarking with artifacting ram clocks on the edge of stability with plenty of ram voltage and they ran fine until I sold them. I can't understand how an unmodded card crapped out so easily. Reminds me of the 7900GTs...
