Yeah, I was also told (about the overheating) from a local shop while inquiring about a power supply that I might need more ram... It was a she, and she insisted that I go there and they would install more ram to fix it...

If some one says such crap like the girl to you or the Evga support to me you just can go home lol oh well ... i think the only way Nvidia will respond to this is send the whole story to the theinquirer

... but if you had more ram, store profits would go up and they might give you a new card for free with their newfound millions?

She also suggested the "Diagnostic" method, take my tower to them and "diagnose" the problem for only $50...

Default Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280

I"m currently running 2 EVGA SSCs at stock speeds (650/1400/1160). During Furmark, they get up to >100 after about 3mins. There's no crashing or artifacts though even if Furmark keeps running. For non-intensive games like GTR2, they're about 65 degrees and intensive games like Mass Effect are about degrees. I'm living in LA though and temp has been at least 88F/31C recently.

Should I do a RMA though? I notice that the cards throttle down if I even try to overclock just a little. Is that a bug or genuine defect?

Default Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280

I wanted to wait before I posted to be sure, but I had a card that overheated in seconds once installed. At first, I thought it was my PSU, or ventilation, but once I pulled the card out I noticed an odd discoloration on the backplate like it had been heated by a blow torch.

I called eVGA and setup a no hassle RMA as usual.

Installed the replacement today and it reports a max temp of 76c under load while inside a hot case. Obviously, it was the card that was borked. The RMA has a older serial number too.

Edit: I failed to mention that the old card squealed like a pig while under load. New one is quiet.

Angry Re: Overheating and similar issues with GeForce GTX 280

I'm having the same issue but it isn't an eVGA or BFG.

I have an Asus GeForce GTX280 1GB DDR3 2xDVI/HDCP and it goes from
55C to 115C (within a min) and then turns itself off.
I even tried putting the card right in front of my Airco. The only effect this had is that it would take a min longer to reach the 115C treshold.

Used ATITool's Show 3D function for stress test.

I've sent a mail to the reseller today and i'm waiting for a response.

Hope it all goes well.

Oh it also sounds like it's constantly changing fanspeed a bit when running full, guess that's what byte8086 means with "squealed like a pig."
