Default Re: Just got my GTX 280 and some Problems

Has gotten any sort of explanation as to what the problem is from support? I am beginning to lean towards a heat or heat sensor issue as well. My idle temperatures start off fine after about 15 minutes the temperature is still only @45 degrees, but after I play a game even after @5 minutes my temperatures are still @65 degrees. Also when my screen goes black (no signal) it is like the card turns itself right off, I can no longer hear the roaring 280 GTX fan everything on the card just stops, so I think it may be exceeding the temperature threshold. I agree with the other observations that the card isn't actually that hot though, my 8800 GTX felt hotter to the touch, and I don't get any artifacts before the card turns itself off.
