Default Re: My GTX280 won't boot

if it stutters and overheats over 100*C then it's one of the early ones that are damaged... get it replaced... if you're returning it to a local store ask if they got any recent shipments in from the manufacturer as the newer models dont have this problem... i had a BFG GTX 280 OC which would stutter and overheat to 105*C and it wasnt even overclocked although it's the OC model... so i returned it to the store but the only cards they had were the OC2 but they were at least new shipments from the manufacturer... ended up paying an extra $35 for it but it was worth it since this one does not go above 86-87*C or so and is properly overclocked
