    That 0.92v overvolt was introduced around v 314.22 which was the go-to driver for the 580m/675m. It's some sort of bug that the Boost 2.0 feature is kicking up the voltage when it is not supported on that core. After two 580m's and a complete replacement with an R4 - but still with a 675m which also failed, I went with a 680m and that thing is bulletproof :eek:!

    It;s not even a big OV but with such a flaky card it doesn't seem be able to cope.

    I never saw it myself but I saw here a couple of cards that refused to drop the voltage to the stock 0.87v once they had been overvolted, even with a different vbios - weird, and no help I'm afraid :(. NVidia Inspector allows you to change the voltages but I don't think it will help if it is a faulty boost action? Give it a go maybe?
