Going to throw this out there: My backplate on my 570 had some loose screws. Noticed it when I was putting WCing in my PC (DOA pump *** -.- ).

Might be a good idea to check yours, you can fasten most of them without removing the cooler (I had 3 loose ones which were moderately accessible). You'll need a very tiny screwdriver though ^^

(I don't know how they got loose or if they were loose in the box but if one of those falls out, hits the fan and gets flung against the motherboard .... Good luck explaining the RMA that it isn't your fault )

I found an extra zink plated screw in the heatsink of my 560. Noticed it after I turned it on...didn't come from my card though... weird. My heatsink screws were lose when I got it.

I'm also adding more heatsinks on the VRAM memory. You can follow my mods here http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/1130...issue-mod.html I feel like overclocking this and especially the memory, even at stock volts increases the memory temp too much. Hopefully I'll cut it down.

Good tip, +rep. I am going to disassemble mine this weekend and put new TIM anyways so I might as well check.
