They will. After it takes 5 days for them to receive the card and another 3-5 business day for refund to be processed. You it's been literally 2+ months of me actually owning the 680 card, rest of the time was RMAing GB 680, then two Galaxies. I ended up buying a 670 Windforce out of boredom because it took Gigabyte a month to send the 680 back, which I sold for this.

I didn't know going green meant spending cash left and right.

Now I have to put in my old Radeon X1950

/end of venting.

Gosh I REALLY feel for you!!!

So if I remember your card was crashing a bit at stock right as well as not overclocking well?

If you lived near by me I would order one for you and let you give me the cash back when you got your refund smile.gif

If the video card gods are just you will get a GOLDEN GPU and VRAM on your next card!!!!!!!!!

Also I am not sure but I think I remember reading in a UK thread that Galaxy will be or is re-releasing (or he Galaxy equivalent there) the SOC/HOF with lower clocks (I think similar to the Lightnings and Classifieds) I do not have confirmation on that nor do I know if that is meant for the US SOC cards as well... Just want to bring it to your attention so you do not get one of those wink.gif

Also could you put the card from another seller on a credit line and then pay it right off when you get your cash? ( I know some do not like using credit , I am just trying to think of ways for you to get your card faster) speaking of that have you pushed for New Egg to do anything more than a general refund after they recieve your card? perhaps again some sort of upgrade? or maybe giving you store credit now before they get the card back so you can buy what you want when it is in stock?

I will keep checking here for updates as I am troubled by your trouble redface.gif

Just wondering but are you thinking about changing to any other card? or are you set with the SOC (a working and new card of course smile.gif )

I tried using 2.2.2 and it did nothing but put the power target in the slider area. 2.2.whatever hurry up :/ also the Lightning BIOS is out if you would like to try it and let me know if you can at least touch the memory that Galaxy said could take some more volts.

Got a link for the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition BIOS perchance? smile.gif My google-fu is failing me.

I appreciate your generosity. Says a lot about this community. Rep+

I'll just wait and see what happens next. I called Newegg and escalated it to management, and I sent an email of pictures of the card along with pics of the serial, etc. Turns out from speaking to the supervisor that the serial they sent out is not the one I have.... duh. But anyways, I've already demanded a refund for the shipping and handling of the previous two purchases, so I got my $15 back, and I demanded a 10% off my next purchase for the failed QC at the warehouse, and a secondary RMA in a row. Now, I am torn between another SOC, or just going back to 670.

They rightly should give you that 10% off!!!

If you go 670 which would it be?
My thought is the 670 PE I mean you will get some voltage control and reviews are great for the card!!! and with 10% off that would be under $400 and likely not be far off from the SOC and lightning when fully overclocked... (my 2 cents)

On my end I am having a few issues with one or both of my lightnings (still checking on it) am thinking of rma for replacement but still those PE 670's look like a mighty nice compromise on performance for cash and there are 90 in stock as I type this LOL)...

Thanks for the rep , gives me a smile smile.gif

I will keep checking here to see what you end up getting as a card and to see how well NE treats you (they have always treated me VERY well smile.gif )

Man that's terrible honestly. I'm really sorry you had such bad luck. If you do stick with the SOC I pray you don't get screwed over anymore. As for possibly sticking with the 670 it can't hurt honestly. It's not much of a loss in general aspects.

******UPDATE*******

I just received a call from a gentleman by the name of Art from Newegg. He started off by apologizing, and telling me that I was right, and that he was baffled by what happened. They are doing an investigation on the matter. In return for my inconvenience, they have refunded me the two time s&h of combined $15.60, not once, but twice... not sure why, but that was very welcome. And I will receive a credit of an additional $50 available immediately for my next purchase. At this point he apologized again, and thanked me for sending in the pics with serial numbers as proof. I accepted it, and thanked him for fixing the issue, as I AM a valuable customer, having spent $$$ over the years.

Now, I will take the $80 credit, and not purchase the Galaxy again as a bad omen.... or something. To say the least, I am happy, and will personally send an email to this gentlemen's Manager as a gratitude.

Any suggestion what's next?biggrin.gif

Amazing recovery plus 1 for them. Honestly the most logical thing would be the 680 Lightning unless you don't plan on staying with the 680 route.
