Had to RMA 1 card as it was pathetic. and thing is I paid 400GBP for it.
Asus 780i Motherboard RMA Overheating as Well.


I will in FUture get ATI products and Intel.

I tried to go SLI with my 45nm CPU but 780i Chipsets Have Overheating Defects and are juts Crap and have Overheating NB too


Going back to ATi and Intel like back in the good Old days.
I am in the exact opposite boat. Returning to Nvidia after a run with ATi. Very happy with my 4870. The 4870x2 however, is a different story. Microstutters all over the place -- Crysis was reporting 40-50fps and running like it was in the single digits. I'll be picking up a GTX280 tomorrow.

Something was wrong with your setup or the card, because Crysis doesn't do that on a single card with my setup. The only time I see MS is when it falls to 30fps or below. But at 40-45 it's perfectly smooth.

Anyway, sorry to hear you had bad luck.

Received a working BFG GTX280 OC this morning. No overheating and temp doesn't go above 60C load on Crysis.

I tried using the Koolance VID 428 block and RMAed it thinking it was the block. I then tried the DD Tieton and had two replacement blocks sent to me, which the 3rd block made perfect contact with the GPU and still temps hit 100C+ in Furmark.

Dell will be replacing this card, hopefully I'll get one that works, because watercooled GTX's shouldn't even touch 60C.

This is definitely a problem Nvidia needs to fix. I'm very disappointed.
I just wanted to report in. Dell came today and replaced the GTX 280. Everything seems great now! Ran Furmark for 20min and temps didn't exceed 76C!

Nice! Glad you got a good one

76 still seems a little high for water cooled, mine never goes above 55 in Furmark with a full cover EK water block. But less than 100 is always good

Default Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280

Hi Guys, I just registered so that I could add to this thread....

This is indeed an interesting thread. I have been having issues with my PNY GTX280 which I bought a month ago from Newegg. I can't say that my issue was related to heat, but I really did not test the temps accurately for the few days I had the card.

I sent the card back to Newegg for replacement or refund but they refused as I had removed the UPC to send off for a $40 rebate. What a crock. So they have had my card now for over 2 weeks, once I get it back I will RMA it to PNY.

What a joke I bought this card in September and had it installed for 4 days.

In any event, here was my issue:

Card was installed on a clean copy of Win Vista Ultimate 64bit. 4gb of Mushkin pc 6400 ddr2, Asus P45 delux and E8400 @4.0ghz. Nice rig, I was hoping for big things. I installed Vantage and FutureMark 06 and COD4, Bioshock and World in Conflict.

Latest WHQL drivers were used from Nvidia's website and away I went. I used no FSAA and performance settings and 3D Mark and Vantage ran nicely, so I decided to play some games COD4 being first in line. Set up FSAA in drivers to enhance application (like usual) and then tested COD4 at 1680x1050 from the tutorial using fraps. With no FSAA I averaged out approximately 180fps, so now with 2xFSAA enabled on the same scene in the game, my fps were 15-25 making the game unplayable, laggy and badly stuttering...

WTF, I retested with different drivers, using Nhancer instead of the Nvidia control panel, same result. I tried RTHDRIBLE, same issue with FSAA enabled... WTF.....

I briefly looked at the temps after coming out of the game, it looked to be about the 70C mark (but could have been much higher during gameplay)....

Is it possible that the card was working harder when FSAA was enabled causing the temps to increase to levels where the card was throttling back????

I have fantastic cooling, my case is the new Coolermaster HAF932 (very recommended) and I also have a V8 cooler sitting on my cpu.

What do you guys think???

The 76C was when I tested it first with the stock cooler before taking it apart (make sure I didn't get another dud!). but watercooled with a DD Tieton block doesn't exceed 53C!

i'm loving the silence now! that fan was driving me crazy!!!

I stand corrected. For some strange reason, that only happened in XP. In vista, it's fine.

Hello Everyone,

Got my GTX280, I am very happy with the results. Ran Furmark 5 mins. Strange how the memory clocks do not match.
Thank you,
Monnie
