which specific desktop did you get? can you link to whichever one's yours?
curious what parts did they use....cause for 1, your system shouldn't need a 700w PSU unless its a very crappy cheaped out not-reliable one.....

Could be the Issue, if you can try increasing voltage just a bit more and see if it stabilized. Try overclocking you're core clock first then, work on oc the memory.

I got a custom one. I got a "standard" 700w power because 650w was required. I figured I'd spend the $5 or whatever for the upgrade to 700 in case that was the new minimum for a card I would want in the future. The line was "700 Watt -- Power Supply - SLI Ready" on my confirmation email.

I unlocked the voltage so it goes all the way up to 1.2v now. However my the video started messing up pretty bad when I got to 950/1900/2200 though the temperature was still pretty cool.

Edit: Seems like I don't have the cooling to use high voltage, temperature climbs like mad to 85 degrees and my system crashes even at 1.1v...
