Default Re: Just got my GTX 280 and some Problems

well if that's what he means then clearly it's a software issue not a hardware one? so the card hasnt "gone bad" - rather the software is screwing up?

my gtx280 is also running hot (or says it is), I have applied arctic silver etc but its not made any difference.. even with fan running at 100% it reaches 105c in vantage test 2 - however I am not convinced it is actually reaching that temp - it doesnt feel that hot, and I get no artifacts etc.. it throttles back when it says its at 105c and then runs fine at 104/105 indefinately (by alternating between full/throttled speed)
