Just as likely to be a drivers / windows thing as anything. In my experience, PCB/solder issues tend to manifest as artifacting, crash at full load, or complete failure. Throwing the card into another system is the easiest way to check. That said, I've baked 3 or 4 cards successfully including a 580 just a few months ago. No harm in giving it a try.
