Default 5800 Ultra owners: Does your card over heat in MB BIOS?

I have here to play with the BFG 5800 Ultra card. Well I plugged it in and proceeded to go to the BIOS start up screen for my motherboard. Well after about 3 to 5 minutes I started getting garbled lines and black blotches all over the screen. Finally after 8 minutes the screen just went black. The card was pretty hot!

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced overheating of the card in the motherboard BIOS screen? If I'm correct the card is running at 500/1GHz with no fan on... Any owner have the same experience?
