Well it could be also the PSU voltage! as I know how it can affect the GPU's his is at 0.95V in the video .... I am at 1.0V....

Just a thought! but overall I am happy with this new GPU FTW! Carnal.... Cool

Now I am waiting for HOOK to pimp his new A8...... (sounds like an AUDI)

So it looks like i got a bad GPU.... I talked to the HIS tech and yes I do.
It's overheating.

They said the max it can take is 95c.

Ran a GPU stress test and it hit 95c+ and started making a hissing noise.

The tech said to return it! it has problems.

So a new one it's on it's way hopefully I hit HOOKS temps....

What luck eh? Frown

When it come to return policy, nobody can beat Amazon. You can simply print out the shipping lable from their website and tape it over the lable of the original shipping box.

For me, I never buy any fanless GPU. To me, the best way to cool it is with fan. This one is $55- SAPPHIRE 100323L Radeon HD 6570 1GB and I might get it to replace the GT430 in my E350M1 HTPC. My wife starts to annoy by Macroblocking stuff now.
