Default Re: My 280 just died :(

have you checked your temps?... the initial GTX280's had problems with the HSF and it would reach 100*C+ easily... i had one that would go to 105 and then start stuttering like crazy... i exchanged it for another one and i've had it for more than 1 year now without issues... this one maxes out at 80-85*C overclocked
