Hi, I puchased a nvidia gtx660 evga ftw 2gig gpu, after 2 days rows of black sqaures appeared followed by a reboot, then I had loads of coloured squares, reoots of bluescreens anytime I launched a game, returned the card and exchanded it for an identical card, within 3mins the same thing and it was very hot when removed, is this just bad luck on the card or something like my motherboard causing problems, onboard intel hd graphics work fine (I5 cpu) gigabytega-z87 hd3 mainboard, 750w bronze rated modular power supply (bought new as I wanted a rated one for the gpu)

Sounds like bad luck, is fan running on card and nothing fouling it?

yeah just rechecked the car nothing touching it at all and fan was spinning freely, managed to take a pic so back the the store it is with some evidence
