Re: Disappointed with GTX 260 216
My buddy has a 260 216 that was giving him problems right after he installed it.
He had no idea what was going wrong, it would get really slow or crash the system.
It turns out he had a round IDE cable curled under the card that was pressing on the intake fan that points down (takes air in and blows out the back). The fan wasn't spinning at all. He figured it out by running GPU-Z and noticed the Fan speed was 0. He shut down, moved the wire and everything is fine now.
