Seems Dell HP as well as others now carnt hold back from saying out about NV gpus mosty some bad batch of who knows how many thy sent out, Do have bad cores that overheat well over thy should do at peekload.

If you got a overheating card, send it back asap, Thy will replace it.

Furmark gets my GTX280 upto 90C and the fan going at 100%, thankfully, games don't do that as Crysis doesn't even break 80C and fan stays relatively quiet.

That's a little scary. If you are maxing the fan and still get that high compared to most 280s I have seen, you may get thermal runaway if your room temp is any higher.

Stop playing so much Furmark. It isn't a very good game anyway.

Furmark is just useful to see the worse case scenario and stress test, I ran it with AA maxed at 1600*1200 to really push it which seems to increase the temps quite allot, otherwise it's completely useless and represents no games at all.

Oh, I should have probably added that the card is clocked at 738/1512/1350.

Due to weak sales and NVIDIA's improper pricing, not hardware failure. Did you actually read what you linked to?

I just got though reading nvidia page about the new GTX 280 and it says the max temperture is 105c.If you card works at that temperture then I guess it would be fine ,but if it is throttleing down or plain just shuting down then it no good even if nvidia says the max temperture for a GTX280 is 105c.Is ever one running there fan at 100% and still getting those high tempertures.

cards runing over 94-c even if thy oc cards for long term will risk you gpu to meltdown cos of the huge die gpu has in 200 gtx serise have ><
heres a sli video what happonds if thy run over 100-c
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQdrJCPsWF0

Anyhow i always have my fan runing on direct control at around 80 to 85% speed using iver setting in nvidia control panel or RivaTuner.
Auto fan control for me is not keeping my card as cool as i would
like it to be cos fan only starts to get up to 70 to 80% speed with tests
when card starts hitting 84-c to 94-c which by then seems to make fan make some wird reving sounds like a car starting up, In end with fan speeding up and down just makes matters bad as card can quikly
heat up to over 100-c with fan dropping speeds depending on peekloads.

Seems though now runing all time on Direct control playin games
with fan speed around 85%, heat on peekloads bearly reachers 74-c
with tests from HWMonitor and Everest Ultimate.

It all mosty depends on cards cooling, pc case airflow ect.

Looks like I'm going back to my 2x 8800GT setup. Furmark pegs my card out to 105c pretty much instantly

Thumbs up Re: Do you get overheating issues with your GTX 280 ?

First time I buy a high end and expensive card, but I don't like it. (GTX280 Gainward)
So much noise while playing that speakers can't hide it, it's a vacuum cleaner!
I start ETQW, marvelous performance at maximum settings (1920x1200), (vacuum cleaner noise here) and after a while the performance lowers itself, as if it were my 8800GT at same setting.
What could I do now? Wait for some non-expensive (up to 60 max.) aftermaket cooler or return it and wait for better times? The store where I bought it gives me a week.
P.D.
I tried a Leadtek 280GTX and while this thing gets noisy when gaming, is much less than the previous Gainward, so low-medium volume speakers can hide it; temp when idle stays at 60C, and the highest one when gaming with ETQW was 82C
