Is there anything i can do besides sending it back to evga? I don't think there' sanyway to fix the problem, it shouldn't be overheating and it's getting good power. SO yea... no idea

I would find temps and make sure you do have enough power on rails. You might have to down clock but I would guarentee you are going to have to send it back.

i called up evga and turns out i got one of the first of that type of card. They've had to redo a few things on the cards since then. Luckly they have cross shipping, should send my new card out in a couple days. Thanks for your help!

Yeah I heard that EVGA aren't happy with their quality control and are trying to tightnen things up. My 7800GS CO was faulty and I had to send that back aswell, there have been quite a few EVGA faulty cards recently.
