Default Re: My 6600GT faulty?

I have discovered the problem with this card. Most of the thermal tape doesn't even contact the memory, light is visible through the gap. So the chips aren't being cooled at all, in fact, they are basically being heated with no place for the heat to go.

Because it only has two screws at a diagonal it's hard for it to get them to contact all the memory. I'm taking it back for a replacement on Saturday.

This is a poor design or just badly put together.
