My deepest regrets to yourself and your family...

The 7800GTX is a great card but it will never be a 280GTX....Goodluck with the Gainward customer support btw.

Shame, faulty cards are a pain, or rather the time required to send it back and get a replacement is, on the plus side if they refuse then at least you have a reason to upgrade. :/

Did the GPU waterblock you put on spring a leak? Or was there a leak somewhere else that got it? Or was there no leak at all and the card just went?
