Okay. In March I got an EVGA 560 TI OC... from day 1 this card would only crash, or artifact in BC2. Every other game was fine, absolutely no problems. Well I started to get sick of these BC2 crashes as they seemed to happen more and more. I scoured the internet only to find SO MANY people with the EXACT same problems...BC2 only. There were so many different mixtures of hardware/software configurations; the only constant was a 560 ti... The brand didn't matter. Solutions I found on the internet for this matter back in March-June: Downclock card MEM/CORE/SHADERS, up the voltage a bit, increase fan speed with Afterburner, change power supply, try new card bios, new drivers, cold boot pc, etc... I also monitored the temperature closely, and even with the fan speed at 100%, my GPU temps were fine and hardly different at auto fan speed vs. 100%. Every solution seemed to provide a temporary fix, as the crashes were getting worse and more frequent until BAM! BC2 gave me another hardlock after artifacting. Tried restarting; video corruption on boot. Card was done. Now, mind you, that NOTHING in my system was overclocked, undervolted, slowed fan speed, etc. The system was completely stable in everything except BC2. Even prior to March when I used my 260 for BC2, not a single problem. I had even changed my PSU for a nice Corsair 700W with a single 68a 12v rail for GPU stability. I also tried a different, nicer motherboard. Thankfully, Microcenter took the card back no questions (and no receipt, whew!) and gave me a shiny new replacement. This card was the same, but had two fans this time, instead of one. This card has produced 0 problems... Until BF3. The EXACT same thing is happening... verbatim from what I found with my first-gen 560ti and BC2. The problems AND SOLUTIONS are absolutely identical right now, compared to BC2 a few months back. The 560ti is still the constant. And yes, I have monitored the temperatures just as I did before, and even downclocked for stability. Seemingly no problems again with temps (but I cant monitor GPU memory temperature). After more frequent artifacting in BF3, I had my first hard-lock yesterday. My heart sank; Thankfully, my PC seems fine today. Just no BF3. The only things I can think of are: 1) The card is unable to handle this engine, at the highest possible in-game settings (except resolution) with additional, driver-level FSAA applied (I like 2x SGSSAA). 2) There is a bug somewhere in Frostbite's code, that is causing problems isolated to only 560ti's. If anyone out there has any input on this. Please post. If you search elsewhere, you will see that this problem is spreading like wildfire.
