Default Re: Overheating GTX280 Bios version

Yeah I got curious and unboxed my RMA to take a look and give the tests a few more tries, but still having the same overheating problem. My BFG GTX 280 OC is using BIOS version: 62.00.0E.00.OF and I am having massive overheat problems even on cold starts with the case sides off, thus not ambient temp / case airflow issues. I will also agree with Lfctony, it isn't the BIOS, nor case airflow, nor poorly contacting heatsink, but something defective with the GPU itself (possibly the heatspreader to silicon contact or perhaps simply defective silicon).
