I agree it's a cool card, but my only option left was to steal one from Abit by lieing to get an RMA. I wasn't the original owner, had no receipt, and the card may well have been damaged by the rocket scientist shipping it to me in an envelope.
None of the above is Abit's fault or responsibility. I've moved on, have a 5800U arriving today or tomorrow.
