Why it's common with FC3 though...
To be honest, there is one commonality in it all. Back around 276(might have been a bit earlier or later) or so, Nvidia introduced way to deal with power consumption for core voltage and TDR's jumped through the roof, even on cards that were stable. It was one of their ways to deal with the never ending problems of power consumption+heat. The problem is some cards didn't like it, not a single bit. It actually got bad enough at one point that nvidia was willing to have any rig+card shipped to them from anywhere in the US so they could test it in their labs.

One of the solutions found was locking the voltage outside of the drivers fixed it. It's been an ongoing issue, and one that I had problems with myself. Changing drivers to a previously known stable version fixed it in all cases, an that was back on my old 460 and 560. Two cards, in two different rigs, using nearly identical build components.
