Default Re: GeForce 6800 and random freezes

Remove the sheild by the fan and tighten the gpu heatsink (star pattern for tightening) I think the reference design was not tightened down enough the screws had 2 full turns to make them tight this is a physical issue I am shure of it. This will not void warranty just don't pull off heat sink bad contact will cause gpu to overheat or if tighter on one side will also cause overheat. A wrongly installed cpu will show similar lockups.try it! It is the problem! I am shure of it.
