Default Re: Sticky: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 285 or GTX 295" thread

Got my GTX 285 yesterday, and apparantly, its a squeeler.
Checking with Gainward if I should RMA it, if there is even a point seing how a replacement would have the same type of components and capacitors, which I understand is the source of the noise.
Doesnt do it all the time, comes and goes with the loading bar in some games, and sometimes in game aswell.

Performance is awesome though and the fan is quiet enough.
Playing WOW @ 1920x1080 with 2x2 (4x) Supersampling atm, good stuff.
Q6700, Abit X38 QuadGT, 8Gb (4x 2GB) OCZ Reaper DDR2 1066MHz, Gainward GTX 285 1Gb, X-Fi XtremeMusic
