Yeah PP wish I woulda known about eVGA when I bought my 5700...got a chaintech, and 6 months later the things dying..mind you I had to RMA one as it is...psht never again.
They also offer faster memory than the trusted EVGA.
them trying to market that faster memory might be on more contributor to the flakey cards.. BTW: I guess a burn in time did good cause i just ran my eVGA 564/1101
The core is hitting 83C, so I'm gonna have to wait until water cooling before I can really bump that beast up.
Like PP said, they coulda put a better heatsink on the eVGA especially considering the 6800 series had good heatsinks so I'm kind of disappointed in that sense. No way I'd want the fanless version though. Hygors was hitting like 100C+, that's insane..I hate the fact that mines hitting 83C overclocked muchless 100...yeesh
