Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280
Cards that have properly seated heatsinks still overheat... The shim must not be making contact with the core or something, thus it overheats terribly quickly. The fan speed increase makes no difference since the shin probably isn't making proper contact... In my case it took 4-5 seconds to exceed 100C, 20-30 second to shut down from overheating.
