My GTX 480 died -- A reliability study.
I just received a pair of Galaxy GTX 480 (i.e. two of them).
I used them sporadically for 2-3 days without any issue.
Then, after many consecutive hours of running a 3D app (maybe 10 or 20 hours) one of the card died. The card would still work for 2D, but would immediately hang the computer as soon as it starts running any 3D application. The other card still works fine.
Did anyone else also have reliability issues with their new GTX 480?
Everyone who got h/w problems of any kind with their GTX 480, please post about your experience. It would be interresting to hear about them all.
