4 weeks is a long time to run an electronic device, srsly. /looks at 10 year old DVD player...

I don't keep video cards for more than a year tbh and my 280s ran hotter than these cards for near enough a year and I never had any problems with them.

I wasn't implying that 4 weeks is a long time, just that they haven't died or anything like that and I've been playing full tilt at very acceptable temps.

Honestly, if that was the case. Nvidia would have never made them.
