i tried that. along with a few other tricks.

from the research i did, that voltage is within acceptable limits. and me not being at the computer when the failure happened is totally irrelevant.

#1 i was under the impression that furmark was popular tool for stress testing cards. guess its a bit too good of a stress test
#2 why wouldnt i up the volts? my temperatures were still more than acceptable. i wanted to see what the upper limit of the card was. how the hell am i supposed to know where my OC wall is if i dont try upping the voltages? its not like i voltmodded it and did a suicide run here.
Anyways, ASUS got my card last thursday and they already shipped it out and it should be here on monday according to FedEx. I sure hope I dont become another one of these ASUS RMA horror stories. Fingers crossed.Edited by joman2055 - 5/16/12 at 12:13am
