The better take-home is probably just that GTX 280s have overheating issues, regardless of who you buy yours from. I certainly wouldn't increase this chance by buying one of the overclocked ones!
IMO, a video card should be developed for the least common denominator, which would be a poorly ventilated case.
Yep the main point still remains. 65% total of the users in this board are getting overheating issues with their 280's. (so far)
