If you contacted customer service and they said to RMA it because its too hot than take care of business.

( not to mention your reply makes you come off like a 12 year old child spouting out profanity left and right )

Your reply was not only incredably rude, but didn't even take into account that I payed a whopping 560 dollars for a card that could perform exceptionally well within the specified reasonable limits of temperature ( which is NOT 74 celcius idle, which is about 20 celcius higher then typical idle speeds for the 8800 I was told by EVGA ). I mean heck I can't even run 3dmark 2006 without it turning off due to overheating unless I use Rivatuner to modify the fan speed to 100%. I deserve to have the right to RMA the card ( which I am doing ), if people like you are bothered by it, well then too bad. Its my rights, your not the one who payed 560 dollars for the card.
