It doesn't help with it being summertime either-heat and humidity can wreak havoc in cases with suboptimal circulation or layout. These are huge cores and so need a bit more attention. But if this is also a yield problem nvidia really is having a nightmare. Ramp the fan to 35% on a 4870 and the cards got great temps.
