I am getting a Gigabyte one now. We'll see if this one works properly. NO factory OC this time. I can do it via software. Should be here Saturday.

well i bought 5 days ago a leadtek gtx 280, received it last tuesday, immediately installed it, launched crysis very high dx10, and gpu went up to 105 degre and i had to stop the game, cause temp was going up & up again....

i have a very well ventilated case (stacker master 830) with 4 side 12cm fans, 2 intake fan (front) 1 behind blowing hot air outside.

i have an enermax dxx 1000 watts, with 8 pin pci-e connectors, and 6 pins, i tried to everything with those plugs to see if psu was the issue but it wasnt, i have even tried with my tagan 900 watts with adaptateur 6 to 8 pin and same issue.

im very frustrated and angry agains nvidia for releasing such buggy gpus.

so i called the technical service of the shop where i bought the card and sent it back yesterday, and i asked for a refund, i will wait the next revision of the gtx280 (55nm) before i think about buying a nvidia card again.


LAPP your GPU

Leadtek GTX 280 here. No issues unless I install another card in the second pci-e x16 slot. But that is a design flaw by Asus on the motherboard tbh. Pci-e slots too close together for 2 double-slot cooled cards, or a double slot cooled in primary pci-e and another (single or double slot cooled) in the second slot - about 2-3mm gap between cards, not enough breathing space for the 280's... Bad Asus... BAD!

Water cooling both cards is fine tho

If the card gets to 105 degrees in a game, Crysis or any other, then there is a problem. Lapping will make little to no difference.

I have two Z0tac gtx 280s in sli. One of the cards is fine, but the other one gives me issues.

It isn't a total lost cause, as it stays in a reasonable temperature range most of the time, but furmark causes it to overheat every single time. I can play crysis and clear sky without issue though (other than slightly hot temps around 85C).
