Returning because of an overclock? Are you serious?
You should see some of the financial data of RMA fraud and returns in this industry. Its eye popping, soon there will be no RMAs because of idiots like above. Good day.

Those costs have gone up each generation because there are more and more idiots RMA'ing for stupid stuff, they are destroying the industry and raising costs. Newegg is at this time in discussions of removing all VGA returns and instituting restock fees of 20% or greater for all GPUs. Guess what the reason is?
Further, overclocks in SLI/ crossfire aren't what you get in single card mode. You can push 1 card harder than you can push 2-4 cards, i'd assume you would know this. Only someone completely new to the PC game would expect the same overclocks in SLI compared to single card.....

hey BUDDY I SAID return and eat the restocking fee!!!!! not RMA for fraud!! There is NOTHING wrong with buying 5 or 6 and only keeping a handful if you eat up the restocking fee. Please read the post more carefully before judging!!!

AND MAN you have been quick to argue and pass judgment on several posters, it is my turn now I guess!!! I know that SLI WILL reduce the F'in OC which is ANOTHER reason to want two or three cards which OC better so your staring point is higher ! I am also NOT in sli but testing each card individually.

I am out of this forum , due to you....

Alex, I did not mean to badmouth your cards and I will remove those posts as I was just frustrated that my expectations were not met which is ALL on me!!! These cards are good (I just expected unrealistic things) I will still use these cards and tell my friends to buy them!

Bye all thanks for the fun run in this thread smile.gif

edit: for the record one of the cards has some issues at stock and will be rma's (dfluke) and I will either keep the other three or return one WITH restocking charge for cash return)

Dude, you haven't even gotten to test out voltage adjustments yet! rolleyes.gif Who really thought that these were going to perform any better than reference at stock voltage??? rolleyes.gif

Apparenly silly me thought they would rolleyes.gif again my expectations which were not based in reality LOL ... I also guess I was spoiled by that first card which did so well I just thought that was normal for the lightnings ... in any case I will likely have 3 way sli now smile.gif better get my second psu ready for when the voltage is unlocked ... (if my one card was not acting up at stock I would be VERY tempted to just have em all in 4 way sli ) ohhh the benchmark numbers!!!

and I like your way of showing me reality with fair and nice words tongue.gif

oh silly me!

I have no problem sending a card back that is fully functional and taking a restocking hit. That's part of doing business in consumer elecs.

2.2.3 please arrive...

thats what im saying lol. the only reason i bought this card is so i can bench it without having to solder VRs onto the PCB for voltmod. until we get 2.2.3 this is pointless
