Default Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280

No odd issues with mine yet. The sole complaint I have is the fan speeds up and slows down too suddenly IMO. I tend to manually fix it with nTune where I wish.

I only have a 650watt PSU and am using an 6 to 8 pin adapter. I haven't had my overclocking held back one bit. Then again Seasonic makes a quality PSU that puts out very clean power.

Many of the hardware forums have become incredibly vile and petty since the release of the GTX 280. I am going to take a break. The name calling and personal insults are bordering ridiculous.

I don't care what you fellows buy; 9800GTX+, GTX 260, GTX 280, HD 4850 Crossfire, single HD 4870, whatever, I hope you enjoy your purchase.
