Yes, READ the threads here.
There are people who have gotten two or three of four bad cards.

I'd go on & on, but really, there's no need to.
I know all about the problem, I posted about it pretty earily in that very thread as I bought on launch but the problem just went away after reinstalling the card plus i'm on my second GTX280 which doesnt have this issue either, guess i'm just lucky.

At me idea!
It will not be possible marriage on video adapters with factory dispersal.
The manufacturer gives to them of more attention.
What think?

Good thing is I bought this card for $380 brand new from a friend. Now I just have to go return my bad card.

Compatibility issues? I think not. Northbridge/Southbridge fan blowing directly at the video card? Nope. What the heck is going on? I don't know.
Good grief

Five cards...i am going insane after two.

Guys, I will repeat a question: video adapters with factory dispersal rejected or marriage it is less?

Who knows?

Ive has same probs with my new gtx 280 runing Crysis and Furmark
when fan runs on auto. On second graphicis test on furmark mosty close to end, card can reach up to 86 90-c. Crysis around 5 to 10mins of play around 87-c. Card i have is XFX 280 xxx. its never reached 100-c or over yet but card going up in to its 80s-c after just 2 to 5mins is abit consering. I desiderd to take off auto run and have card fan runing 95% at all times mosty runing Crysis and furmark or any game thats tests your card to its limets, Now card is mosty at a temp of 64 to 73-c when runing Furmark and Crysis. i dont know why but at times i think the way it swichers from low 3d to high 3d that controls fan speeds gets its wires crosed some how.

The temps you stated could be normal (since you have the overclocked edition) but could indicate a bad airflow in your case.

Airflow in case seems fine, but reading other stuff thats around about 200 series cards and about them been around 80-c does seem tobe normal as you said. ><

Those temps are really close to what I get as well with 3 280s. Doesn't sound out of the ordinary to me.

Yep same here, Furmark got both of mine to ~85c after about 12 hours(Furmark.exe set to AFR).
