    I know that feeling. Hopefully you have a warranty still in effect.



    You'll never know what you're living for until you know what you're willing to die for.

    Let's all take a moment of silence and bow our heads in memory of a fallen comrade. RIP 7970.

    My Msi 7950 t/f is starting to show artifacts now at anything past 1200mhz. Will Msi know that I run my card over volted and void my warranty?

    Asus Matrix Platinum Ltd.. 2nd one because first had issues. This card was supposedly hand tested to make sure it didnt have the same issues. Guess what? Same issues, right down to the loose screws.

    Yeah, I think it overheated, the heatsink is just that bad on these things. The real kicker? I ordered one of those fancy $90 3-fan heatsinks that are supposed to be really good and I never even got to install it..

    Now I gotta squeeze time out of work to try and RMA the thing for likely another bad card..

    edit

    Blindshot - probably your TIM is at issue, or poor heatsink to GPU contact pressure.

    ... and now a GTX670 kicked the bucket

    I think the top slot on my P8P67 is killing the cards, and for some reason my board is locked at 8x, never changes to 16x no matter what.

    sigh.

    Doesn't enabling USB 3.0 or Turbo something in BIOS force that 8x to happen?

    I know for my mono it says...

    "Note: Turbo USB 3.0 utilizes 8 PCIe VGA lanes, so it is only possible to enable it with a single graphics card running at PCIe x8 on P67 chipset motherboards, or while using Intel? HD Graphics from the CPU (i.e. no VGA card) on H67 chipset motherboards. It is an option for high bandwidth users."

    You can use HWiNFO32/64 and check the PCI Bus tree in main window to see how you PCIe lanes are divided - capability of the host controller and topology of endpoints.
