Bah...no worries, "I plugged it in, started up Crysis and then there was sparks, some smoking and holy crap the thing burnt up! Not acceptable, what kind of product is this! I want my money back!"

first call up their tech support, and see if they'd let you get an upgrade card, or a replacement card, because of its inconvenience, then come back and fry the card (when the card is discontinued, they won't RMA it, they'll send you an upgrade)

say you used speed fan and the voltages are correct, and say you even tried another psu just to be sure.

List the proper voltages of the PSU though. Just in case your PSU really isn't working properly.
