Let me ask you another question what kinda power supply do you have and how do you have it hooked up. Meaning does the power supply itself have a 8 pin and 6 pin power connector to it or are you using adapters?
When you can pick up something like this. It can be any brand but something similar.

I have a new Corsair HX650 with good efficiency (80% Bronze). Modular cabling so its easy to install. The power PCI-e cables are 6 + 2 each. So it will fit a wide range of cards. 600W is minimum for this card according to MSI, although they would over estimate. PSU calculator says 500W would be enough.

EDIT: and that case looks cool but I would need to get a new mobo for it that works for 775 socket Quad CPU. Although, the new PCI-e version 3 is out now, with twice the data rates. I may as well wait for a cards made for this new innovation. Price permitting.

Yup that great. Glad your not trying to run that card on the power supply they give you lol thumb.gif

Btw make sure you keep on top of MSI. You should try to get a reps phone extension #.
Out of site out of mind. It will help you get your card back faster if you call them every couple of days biggrin.gif

i would return or exchange the card. i don't think you should see temps over 75c for the card. I have the twin frozr III cooler and I have never seen temp over 70c.
Most likely all you need is some new TIM and a remount of the cooler, but if it is new i would just go ahead and return it.

A GTX 560 Ti would probably fit your needs and still give you nice performance without excessive heat etc, and I would get a heatsink design that is blower style to help shove that heat out the back of the case.

I've helped many customers update their gfx in a Dell BTX case, best luck I've had was with single slot solutions in the midrange selection of gfx cards, and honestly nothing has fit the bill as the single slot G92 cards of the past, too bad they're just not good enough anymore.

What is TIM... Thermal paste?

Yeah my old card was a 8800 GTX, but it just can't handle DX11 or have shader 5 capability. I have seen watercooled Dell XPS 420 with a bit of mangling and single slots makes it easy to water cool the GPU too. Definitely getting a rear exhaust model as a replacement if RMA works out - although a 580 is a must. 580 is already becoming old news with the new nVidia archtecture coming out. No more Fermi GPUs. Someone earlier said that the Twin Frozer is a reference design once you take the coolers off, so there is block available. Just worried about the warranty though.

RMA if you can dude, that ain't right. Maybe they forgot the thermal paste tongue.gif

Not poo'ing on NV, but if that's the case have you thought about the new 7970. imo it would fit your bill nicely since you say you need a 580's power. redface.gif

Twin frozr cards are non-reference = universal waterblock + heatsinks
