    Good news, it's not "bad capacitors", it's bad voltage curves. Nvidia's stock voltage curve would have voltages on the card fluctuate a ton as it went from stock clocks to boost clocks. If you set a static voltage (1 or 1.1v) in like MSI afterburner, you can hit 2ghz+ all day without issue

    Done this myself, been gaming the last hour and a half now with these settings and I've hit 2030mhz with 0 crashes and my voltages have been sitting nice and snug at 1v, not fluctuating a ton between .9-1+v

    Oh damn, you should report this finding! Thanks for the info, will try this when my GPU arrives. :D

    @Tom Bombadildo Looks like Nvidia released a driver supposedly fixing the issue. Maybe you can remove that alteration and see if it is fixed.
