Damn it...LOL I can't dissable the protection. As soon as it reaches 120 degrees the core shuts off and and all I see is a Black screen and it won't let me set it to higher. Ill try to flash it with different bios or something later tonight.

Oh and the specs below are from my other comp that I use as a server.

Man, I can't believe you would give up 2 totally awesome gaming cards for one P.O.S. outdated joke of a card ATI. Man, it makes me sick. Plz send me one of your GTs!

You know it literally makes me sick to my stomach to hear you doing this to your card. I would LOVE to have that card.

We need to have some decision for who gets the 6800 Ultra and the 2 6800 GTs!!. I say Ultra to Beed, hes suffered long enough. One GT to diablo, and the other GT to me.
