    I rolled back to older driver(used DDU), still got BSOD and system crash.

    I tried 347.25,347.52,347.09,344.75.. all got system crash or BSOD

    the BSOD report said it is causes by dxgkrnl.sys+5d134

    It can't generate crash report sometime...

    My Gigabyte 970 G1 is updated to F3 VBIOS using DVI slot

    I am using Windows 7 64bit

    best performance 344.80 hotfix
    best image quality 347.xx

    or try custom nvidia driver XG driver

    - Windows 8 users must disable Driver Signature Enforcement to install unsigned drivers

    - RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR if you get 'Requires Elevation' error message

    - Supports Geforce 400-900 Series Cards

    BEFORE UPDATING MAKE SURE TO UNINSTALL YOUR CURRENT DRIVER USING ONE OF THESE METHODS http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/327414-nvidia-drivers-avoid-problems.html or use DDU (preferably in safe mode) http://www.wagnardmobile.com/DDU/

    XG drivers are tweaked to improve image quality and stability while performance may increase or decrease slightly depending on your system specs. A few XG registry tweaks include mods to the following:

    Paletted Textures In Video Memory
    Render Quality Flags
    Target Flush Count
    Texture Clamp Behavior
    Texture LOD Bias
    Use Cached PCI Mappings
    Texture Memory Space
    Downloaded Memory Space
    Texture Precache
    UMA Fast Frame Buffering
    Main 3D rendering
    Triple Buffering
    Area Anisotropic Filtering

    347.52 have been good on my card, not one problem and definitely no bsod. The ones that worked well for me prior were 344.75. Tested on games, video, photoshop and tested long enough to know that 347.52 are solid drivers on a gtx 970.

    See if your O/C(If you have any) is high and test again.

    Good Morning.

    Thx for help, I am trying 347.52 and reduce Overclock (+0 Volt, 0%power limit, +58 Core,+150 Mem) and didn't install GFE.

    Is it possible that my Motherboard or PSU is dying?

    When i was using GTX 660, i had the same problems and fixed it by re-install(take it out and put it back) the card.

    Or my PSU Getting Unstable? I can no longer OC anymore?

    Thanks for help.

    Hard to fix here what belongs to you. You have an event viewer of why you crashed? I always try software first but mem test is always a quit check. Running cpu, ram and gpu stress test may point you in the correct direction.

    this is a gpu overclocking/power supply related bsod, if you google the exact bsod error that's what it is.

    the gpu cannot work at the clocks/voltages you are using in your rig.

    very likely due to your 550 watt PSU, if its been in use for a few years, by now probably degraded to the point that its not to power up your rig+ OC'ed GPU.

    a 550 watt PSU, is not gonna be able to consistently suplly 500watts after a few years of usage.

    Yes, i think this the the problems

    I tested +0 volt and +0% power limit for a day now, No problems at all.
    New PSU yay.
    Still waiting for next Gen CPU :S, 6/8 core i7 is too expensive

    Thank you, everyone
