Have you tried another PSU? If you have another one obviously.

Yes. EVGA churns them out like crazy and I was only one release from the newest so I even went and flashed to the latest release as a last resort.

I do have another PSU, but that's just a waste of time. I wish I had another rig that could accommodate their size to try on.

And before you say, well why did you buy cards if the customer reviews where unfavorable? On this model, there was no complaints and reviews online were favourable so I thought I'd give them a shot. RMA is already in progress.

I am super pissed about not being able to play BF3 on release week which would explaing my snippyness in previous posts. I'm sure you can understand and relate to that. 5870 cards are already up for sale.

Got the RMA'd cards back today and guess what? One won't boot. The other seems to be working fine. Yet another RMA. One out four isn't bad right? I really should just request a refund at this point. I noticed a restocking fee for RMA refunds though.

Id rma the second card, rather than deal with restocking or whatever. You've got one working, use that one until you get the rma card. That's what id do.

And here we go yet again. Got my RMA back today and it doesn't boot. That makes 4 DOA cards in a row, I think. I'm starting to lose track it's been so many. I keep bumping this to warn others to stay away from this brand. I've had enough, and I am going with a refund this time.
