Damn dude that sucks, I know how you feel about GPU's not working out.
Bent, warped...same thing. rofl. I've never had an issue with a card....well other than frying a few with slightly over zealous OCs.

My Sapphire 5870 has a slight bend at the end of the card due to the weight of the cooler. It isn't nearly as substantial as your card though.
Don't you mean warped??.....(J/K LA Kings Fan. )

Yeah the whole thing is pretty baffling. To top it off I got a less than stellar CSR from Newegg...meh I guess this gives me extra time to paint the dayglo yellow fans in my case red or something.

I know some of the guys here had sticky pcbs on their MIVGZ. I did.
The back of the motherboard was ever so slightly tacky to the touch.
Something to do with Asus' bathing no doubt.

Keep in mind soutbridge only needs 6-7 Watt under full load.

So you waste your money on that cooler and lose you warranty too.
First, you do not lose your warranty, not sure why you would think that. Second, if you have no airflow in the case the chip actually does get quite warm, something that surprised me because for the last few generations it was not an issue, but since it does not have fins that might explain it. Lastly, it's only a waste if it has no value to the purchaser.

Hmm thats pretty interesting. This card had two 1/4" drops of substance that had a kind of syrup consistency to it.. Could be the same thing. Weird nonetheless.

The SITE you linked ... carries

the - Corsair Vengeance PC3-12800 DDR3 1600
the - G.Skill Ripjaws X PC3-12800 DDR3 1600
the - G.Skill Sniper PC3-12800 DDR3 1600
the - Kingston HyperX XMP T1 PC3-12800 DDR3 1600
and the - G.Skill Sniper PC3-14900 DDR3 1866

All are good RAM kits and on the QVL and so should be fine, get which one you like most, and fits within your budget, you really won't be making a bad choice with any of those.

Using push pull stock fan and tri cool antec for now. Doesn't see above 55c in actual use not benchmarks. Plan on getting Yate-Loon Mediums all around.
