Could you post a smaller pic?

Seriously, if you could post some larger photos (you can use free image hosting like imageshack.us or tinypic.com) that would really help. Also, take some pics from a bit further away as well so we have a better idea of where it's coming from.

Is that some sort of LED? Or, it might be a thermal probe?

Okay cool Hey do you recognize this card at all the one with the connector I know is a pny but the ones I have are suppose to be XFX and it even says XFX on the cooler fan and the sticker on the back leads me to XFX but they say they only made one 5950 ultra and mine looks nothing like it
