My System Specs


As far as I can tell it's not the cooler that's the issue, it's the memory itself that they used. If you can run rivatuner or something to set the fan speed you should not have any heat issues, depending on your case etc... Or even better buy a better one.

However, I was getting errors with the fan at 100%, case sides off and a 80mm Silenx pointing at it. The only thing that made the card work was underclocking the memory. And I can have the fan back to a normal noise level to. So my RMA is on the way. I just hope the memory is of the stock that are in those cards people are clocking memory to over 1000Mhz for benches ;)
