This is probably why the BFG cards don't have the flicker problem. The "True lifetime warranty" is one of the main reasons I chose BFG.
In your reference to my review I just wanted to clarify my statements which were:
In comparing the two images below of NVIDIA's reference design card and BFG's production card note the extra capacitors on the BFG card near the tail. The NVIDIA image is a pre-production shot though so this isn't an apples-to-apples comparison. I just thought it was interesting to see the added capacitors on the production card.
I stated that the top image was a pre-production shot and that it wasn't apples-to-apples with what *may* have been a final production version of the reference design. If that is the case (and the later production version from NVIDIA included the extra capacitors) then it's a moot point.

Also worth noting is that in my Q&A emails with BFG they confirmed that they made absolutely no changes to the card from the final NVIDIA reference design.
