How come they didn't have anything like this kind of stock when the 7970 Lightnings released?

What makes that card seem defective? If it is I would rma to newegg while they actually have em in stock.

Yea seems like with these high class chips that little slip up is just a margin of error in general. The SOC had that kind of issue as well.

I'm wondering as well. I remember the lightning 7970 being in stock a day and being out of stock for weeks since. I'm not the kind of person that generally F5's a page, but it was hard to find for a long time.

Just got my Lightning. Overclocking is kinda iffy, only does 1300mhz~ core and +300 on memory @ 1.212v reactor is OFF. As of now not exactly pleased, but I'm going to try and reinstall drivers and of course I'll see the full potential once the new version of Afterburner is out.

I couldn't fit the gpu reactor because my giant cpu cooler is in the way, but I have an h70 I'm going to install tomorrow. though i'm not sure that will make much of a difference... we'll see.

I cancelled my order with NCIX US and went with Newegg because even though the NCIX site was showing them as in stock, albeit in low supply, I got an email saying they were out and not shipping until Friday. So go with Newegg if possible.
