I recieved my Mars 2 and it had a faulty cooling fan that sounded like a whipper snipper so i sent it back that was number 989 I figured it might be a dodgy batch.So I took a leap of faith and received another one this time it was number 030 so batch wise they couldnt be further apart right? wrong this one had a loose aluminium moulding that when i received it was stopping the left cooling fan from spinning at all ***! so I pushed the moulding out of the way and now it can cool properly but it runs so hot it feels like my 600T is going to melt this ones going back next week too.mad.gif
So I guess the moral to this story is these cards look impressive but theyre build quality sucks so don't buy one just because its a limited edition and you've got the spare cash they really are crap! take it from me Ive had 2.

My question is, since you happen to have an ASUS RAMPAGE EXTREME III Motherboard, you didn't get it in the combo, but had to purchase it separately?

Also, why do you have such terrible grammar? English is the de facto national language of Australia!

Where are the pics of these two Bad@ss card!? thinking.gif

Well, he's from Australia, so it was more like $3000, cuz we know they pay at least double.

Well, no...but that makes it all the more worrying. Most of the people i saw that got a Mars II ended up returning it for some reason or another. Could it be, your getting another mans reject?

You're required to have a certain # of RMA stock for a certain period of time...If you don't it's a violation of several consumer protection laws among others...

Knowing Asus, I wouldn't put it past them to "test" a card, flip it and throw it in the box again.

I would imagine that's the case...Especially considering some of the horror stories I heard while working w/a tech over the weekend.

Asus is really going downhill lately and that's actually a really big problem.

OP you mention it runs hot at hell...well what temperature is that? Like Xeb mentioned 70C is probably normal for these at gaming, id even say up to 80C. Idle at 55ish something like that?

Maybe its your case, do you have good airflow in your case? Pics of that would be good.

Only reason you would buy one is for the looks, and to be honest... they dont look amazing.

Something is off with that card like that... isn't there supposed to be a support stand for the card due to its size and weight , so that it doesn't break your board?
