card after card, doesn't die for no reason, there is something screwy going on with this rig. My friend hard drives kept dying, end up being the PSU.

Really? Because I have gotten 3 dead motherboards in a row from asus a while ago.

Did you get someone else to put in the 4th one and that worked fine?

Or was it just "Willkers! I read some guy online overvolted the CPU and RAM 30% to get a big OC, so I tried motherboards till I found one that worked like that!"?

I've cycled through more hardware than most people ever will. I've never gotten a defective part of any type.

On the other hand I don't usually OC anything, and when I do, it 's always very small, stock volt OCs.

I used to work in a box shop, we didn't see many actually defective parts out of the box, we never saw two.

So when I see a post like this I think "this guy had a problem he didn't realize with something shorting out" or that you're one of the "voltage specs are only there for people who aren't true computer engineers like me" crowd.

When I first got my Gigabyte GTX570 it didn't want to boot, but I fixed that part by installing a Corsair HX850 PSU. It worked fine for about a month, but then it started some anomalies in Crysis 2. Spikes coming off weapons and stairways. I checked GPU temp and found it to be running over 90c in Crysis 2. Installed MSI Afterburner and set fan speed minimum to 70% and put it on auto with increasing fan speed as temp goes higher. Now it is working fine.

I have good air flow through my case and in reality I shouldn't have to use a 3rd party program to make a stock video card run correctly.

I wouldn't say that the 570 is the worst card ever, because I remember problems with the 5800's and my 4600ti had terrible artifacting until I adjusted the aperature settings in the bios.

It could be that your PSU kept killing them. I find it very hard (but not impossible) to believe that.

Nope, PSU was within spec.

Two brand new defective cards in a row with exactly the same defect is very very highly unlikly. As previously mentioned the root of this problem is something else...

Get a voltmeter and test the PSU and mobo outputs, failing that get a new mobo.

Two different areas for each problems. Running stock now. I did that reset that was talked about on a few websites and it seems to have fixed it for now. I just put a new PSU in as well... its the same brand, same kind... all the voltages are reading fine... I'd like to believe its the card.

There are bad parts, but even people who know what they're doing can have something shorting or failing. And when you run power out of spec, all bets are off, YMMV.

You're extremely good at blowing things out of proportion, twisting the words of what people say to better suit you, and being a drama queen in general.

ya, ive changes alot of hardware in my time and seen alot of expensive parts come in defective but chances are after two or three failures, I would then start to look at myself for the problem.
Had something happen like this when I was working on a DASD(raid array for you youngsters), changed out a control card twice.(keep in mind these things cost at least 20k each after all this is IBM we are talking about here) when the third one crapped out, well, I was forced to remove myself and let a specialist in to look at the problem (should have done it after the second one). turns out that when I put the card into the system, i needed to kill a lead manually that powered the system, which i failed todo. To my own defense, the system was supposed todo that when the proceedure was initiated to change out the card. yes, it was a bug with the system but I should have taken precautions...
