Hey. Too much heat is my guess. See if the same thing happens with a large fan blowing inside the open case, as a test.

Do you have a link to the exact card you have?

Out of range error is usually a monitor issue, it would also help if you filled in your specs fully.

Full system specs would help. Is this a custom built or off-the-shelf computer? Also what is in it for a power supply?

Sure it can. If the card temporarily fails, the monitor will complain like that. Knowing which exact card it is would probably help determine if heat may be a factor.

Hey. Have you tried the fan suggestion already as a test? That is a factory overclocked card without a really elegant cooling solution like full card cooling as you would find with many other factory OC cards (like mine.)

I still think heat may be a factor.
