i have a very well ventilated case (stacker master 830) with 4 side 12cm fans, 2 intake fan (front) 1 behind blowing hot air outside.

i have an enermax dxx 1000 watts, with 8 pin pci-e connectors, and 6 pins, i tried to everything with those plugs to see if psu was the issue but it wasnt, i have even tried with my tagan 900 watts with adaptateur 6 to 8 pin and same issue.

im very frustrated and angry agains nvidia for releasing such buggy gpus.

so i called the technical service of the shop where i bought the card and sent it back yesterday, and i asked for a refund, i will wait the next revision of the gtx280 (55nm) before i think about buying a nvidia card again.
Welcome to the forum, bud . Did you try increasing the fan speed? I assume there is a fault with some of the cards because it seems people's cards are either running nice and cool or massively overheating. Luckily mine run cool; 40*C idle and up to 65*C ish after a good sesh on Crysis with clocks in sig.

EDIT: Is this thread just for GTX280's?
