Default Re: Do you get overheating issues with your GTX 280 ?

I was reading an article from PC World about the Dell fix for the Nvidia overheat.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/14905...dia_chips.html

1. The Dell patch is to turn on the fan in the BIOS.

2. Nvidia is not sure as to the cause of the excessive gpu heat. They think it may be related to the die packaging material.

3. Microsft had or has overheating issues in the XBox and has offered to R & R for the owners. This maybe old as I don't have an Xbox and am not current.

In any event Dell has an open can of worms to deal with. the only real fix is to replace the motherboard which sounds like they are reluctant to do.

And the point of this, all of you with 280's that are overheating do you think it is related to item 2?
