I am sure somebody here said that the Torx screws come out easier when the PCB is hot, like if you run it for a while then whip it out and dismantle it. Take care with the fan connectors, they were a very tight fit on mine.

Hi all guys , i own a gtx 690 but i got a terrible issue.
I mounted two fans and a fan controller in my case , but when i booted on the pc, gtx 690 runned everything at low fps , and if i start a benchmark it runs at 10-20fps ( previous , un ungine heaven 4.0 i did 1800points ) and if i start a game too or it will crash. The gpus are running from 2% to 40/50% and everything is lagging. So i tried to reset the bios , format windows 8 , i changed my psu cables , i resetted the cmos , i reinstalled the drivers, i tried old drivers , i change powewr management options , and i actived k-boost with evga precision x but nothing changed. So , i'm so afraid for this issue because i order an arctic accelero twin turbo 690 and now my 690 ( with stock cooler ) is broken. Temps were ok. I'm requesting a RMA and i will ask if can change my broken gtx 690 ( payed 789euro ) with two gtx 770 4gb ( 394x2euro ). I never flashed the gpus bios , i just tried to overclocked it , but it's not lucky ( asic 60% ) and i couldn't get more than a gpu clock +129 and a memory clock+105 mad.gif But in dailyuse i use it @default

Anyone got an idea ?
Here are my specs:
i7 3820@4,3ghz stable , now @default cooled by hyper 412s
gtx 690
2X8 1600mhz cortsair vengance hp
gigabyte x79 ud3
Case fractal design xl r2 with 5 fractal silent series r2 and a fan controller akasa fc.six
HDD WD Caviar Blue 7200rpm 1tb
SSD Crucial m4 64gb just for so
PSU Corsair tx750m

I don't have any idea and i EXCUSE ME for my english , i'm italian.

ok guys I just got word my RMA went through and ASUS is sending a replacment card to me. now my question is: i heard a rumor that replacement cards are somekind of used / repaired ones. Am I getting one of these or ASUS will send me whole new card (even with plastic foil on transparent part of the cooler) ?

thanks

Generally it depends on the terms of the warranty I know some companies say first 6months you get brand new then year+ they reserve the right to use refurbished units as replacements. Read their terms.

so just a quick update. my friend in a company which sold me my gtx 690 told me, that ASUS is sending me USED card for the replacement. any suggestions ?

It could be just fine but you know the feeling when you are getting something from second hand...

well as my friend told me, ASUS is sending repaired / refurbished cards as replacements for new rma's. becouse of that I think that the card I will recieve will be some repaired one from some another previous RMA. and by that it was used by someone else before. I am not saying that card wont be fine, it is just about principal - I bought a new card, that card was faulty so next thing is that I should get again new card or refund.

thats what I think and if someone can show it to me that it is even in some warranty policy text by ASUS, I would request a new one. But I still cant find anything useful frown.gif

Card that was sent in for RMA was used right?, then getting a working used card shouldn't be an issue. The problem I have with getting a working used product back is when there all kinds of scratches or cracked housing or any other anomalies that makes it look used.

Also that refurbished sticker that is placed on RMA replacement bothers me.

I do have a problem when I hear a person just bought something and it was DOA from the get go, then they RMA and get a used working/nonworking product back.
