First "really hot" summer day here and my video card is already acting up? :(

First in Lost Planet demo, crashed on startup of game. Then in NFS Most Wanted, messed up textures, map was all messed up, screen was blocky and black... =/

Ive had this thing not even a month and its already time to RMA?

Is there any way to check temps of this thing with the new video drivers set? (158.22)

Damn, I hope if you do RA, it's a quick one.

Luckily my 8800GTX made it through a summer here, so I'm hoping I'll have this card awhile longer. It's been a joy to use so far. :D

This is why I'm buying an HR-03 plus. I can't bear to see any device idle in the 60's and load in the upper 80's. No matter what these cards were designed to handle heat-wise, it just seems wrong.

Try the new 160.03 beta drivers it might do the trick....

Turn up the fan speed, also ati tool can check the temps.

Might be coincidence, might not even be running hot enough.

But don't feel bad, my 8800 GTS died after the first 3 hours of putting it in my comp and it took the shop like 4 to test it before they would replace it.
