Default Evga GTX 670 2g problems... please help


here is my problem, this is my second EVGA GTX 670 2g card (last one failed after 3 days). I keep looking on the forums for an answer but I have not found an answer to my problem yet. Like many users, my drivers (301.42) keep failing. I know most of the people who's having problems are equipped with z77 boards (my BIOS is up to date 1206). So what could I do, I have tried to turn off IGPU and selected the PCI-E 2gen instead of Auto (or 3rd gen), tested fur-mark but after 2 mins the computer shut down. Any suggestions ? (i am kind of new in forums so any help would be appreciate)

-P8Z77-V PRO w/ Dual DDR3 1600, 7.1 Audio, Gigabit Lan, WiFi, SLI / 3-Way CrossFireX
-Obsidian Series 800D Full Tower
-Hydro H80 High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
-Professional Series HX850 Modular Power Supply
-Vengeance LP 16GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 Quad Channel Kit (4 x 4GB), Cerulean Blue
-Chronos Solid State Drive SATA III, 240GB
-EVGA GTX 670 2g

Thank you again for your help, I need some

What EVGA card are you using? If it's an SC card contact EVGA directly and setup an RMA. They will likely exchange it for the FTW edition which is better.
