Before RMA'ing it, try a new HSF. I have the same thing and it runs great. The stock HSF is a B****. It's loud and doesn't really work well. I changed it to a ZALMAN VF900 and I get 39C-41C at idle. Runs up to 60Cs when OC'd. These cards can take up to 100C [90C if not 100C].

Weird thing is..I never had a problem with the stock HSF except it was just loud when it started up. The ZALMAN VF900 is effective and quiet

I turned on the system and cpu fan failure alarms and saved/exited and it started beeping. I turned off the cpu fan failure alarm exited/saved and it was still beeping. So my system fan is not working. What exactly is my system fan? Are those my intake/outake fans?

That should be Intel's stock fan on the CPU. [It might be defective]. If that's the case, get a new HSF or contact Intel.

Before that, try remounting the CPU's HSF.

open the case and fix the cpu heatsink... if the fan dont work.. get a 80mm and zip tie it to the heatsink.. if somehow the heatsink is loose.. then fix it..

ur video card isnt going to crash the system unless the power supply doesnt have the juice.. other wise the video will artifact before it crashes..

and at 80C.. if the heatsink is properly attached to the cpu... when u grab the heatsink ull know something is wrong when ur fingers are on fire.. litterally.. i did that when my heatsink fan stopped working and the overclocked cpu fried the mobo.. not sure if the cpu works or not... but the mobo dont

1) Reseat your CPU's HSF

You're rig shouldn't be shutting down because of the videocard. Just try to reseat the CPU HSF and see how it is from there. Let us know the results.

I agree with everyone else's opinion, Try remounting your heat sink that is probably why your computer is shutting down.

I have an X1950XTX saphire and excellent airflow with an Antec P180 case and 3x12cm fans.

The dam thing heats my whole desk. It's a like a little blow heater. And it also makes a loud noise.

I even had to change my 430w PSU for a 550w run the damn thing with a C2D E6600 and 2xHDD.

ATI cards run super hot, well at least mine does. After play Prey for an hour the whole case is hot and the ATI ctrl panel says the cards 81c!!! And it's 18c in my room.

My 2c.

You guys were right, the heatsink wasn't hot. I paid a computer store to hook everything to my power supply and to mount the heatsink/fan. Those were the parts i was least confident about doing. You would think they would have done it right. I'll probably just bring it back to the store tomarrow.

You really don't need to. The only problem would be the heatsink. Remove it by twisting the four clips and then you can pop it straight out [maybe with a little pressure]. Then clean out the heatsink and cpu and apply new thermal paste [amount required is only the size of "o" -> apply that much and you're set] and mount the HSF again. It's very simple. You can save $$$ by doing it yourself rather than bringing it to them.
Computer stores charge a lot..from the experience I had years ago..they charged a minimum of $60 just to reinstall the OS. Freaking....
