Default Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280

Okay, so as some of you probably know I'm not too pumped about this whole
280 overheating issue.. especially the fact NVIDIA or EVGA hasn't said anything..

Anyway check out what I found..

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/570/3

It looks like on the 680i, and 708i motherboards the fan on the north bridge
is blowing DIRECTLY at the video card, and in the review linked above caused
their 280 to overheat..

I have a 680i and I'm DEFINITELY going to remove the north bridge fan and get
an extra 120-mm fan to keep it cool. THIS IS RIDICULOUS !!!!!!!!

Anyway, hopefully it solves the problem for some people!
