I recently configured a new build for a friend and just installed the following Gigabyte video card on a Z77X-UD5H motherboard.
GIGABYTE GV-R795WF3-3GD Radeon HD 7950
3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16
HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Cardhttp://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125414
I tested the system with the card installed using a DVI connection and had no problems running 24/7 for a week. Friend picked up the system yesterday, got home and setup his system. Within minutes a Blue screen occurs and this happens several times when he is only trying to change colors on the background of his screen. After asking him several questions I come to realize that he is using the HDMI connector on the video card and as soon as he changes to the DVI connector, his problem disappears. I have no HDMI capable monitor, so could not test this.
Would this be a defective HDMI port, firmware problem on the card, or driver issue? I have read elsewhere that others have had problems with HDMI connector as well on this card.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated before card is RMA'd.
