Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
EVGA 670 and the Red Screen of Death (Now with video goodness)

So, I've been fiddling around with ENB mods for Skyrim, and suddenly, while attempting to get one to work, my screen goes red. Bright red. Nothing short of a hard power down gets me out of it. When I reboot, as soon as the "Windows starting up" animation begins, I lose signal to the monitor. Safe mode works, so I try reinstalling drivers and what not. This works for about 10 seconds after rebooting normally, but then Red Screen of Death again. So I say, "Fuck it" and reinstall Windows 7. The desktop is only used for gaming, so any losses file wise aren't a big deal so I do a total wipe and format of the hard drive.
Reinstall, Windows boots in, I install the video drivers, and upon reboot Red Screen of Death again. I've gone through every version available on the Nvidia site, I've fully updated Windows and THEN installed the drivers, I've updated the motherboard's BIOS, all of these and nothing. Newer versions of the drivers simply lose connection and signal when booting up and older ones get me the RSOD after a few seconds of booting into Windows. I've fully reinstalled Windows three times now to try different orders of doing things.
Is it looking like RMA time? I've only had the card for about a month and a half.
Here's my specs...
i7 3770k CPU
EVGA GeForce 670 GPU
ASUS P8Z77-V Motherboard
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
