I think when I was cleaning everything out I jarred the HSF a bit, somehow.. I also notice there was a lot of gook underneath the HSF when I removed it, plus this ghetto fan mod seems to be helping. Guess Ill look into a better cooler soon, as well as a higher flowing CFM fan in the front. Right now Im using the stock fan from my Big Typhoon to draw in air, and at 50 CFM (downrated a little) it might not be doing the best job. Maybe Ill buy another Antec to stick in the front. My BT seems to like it.

Glad you fixed it. If the HSF does not come 100% in contact with the GPU, even the slightest overheating will occur.

I've been having the same kind of problems with my 7900GT, but when it hits 57c+ it starts artifacting, and after playing games for a bit (gets upto about 65c) it will just cause random reboots, BSODs / Stop errors and CTDs.

I'm in contact with the place i bought it from (Chillblast.co.uk FTW!) and they're gonig to RMA it to BFG for me, to save me the hassle of contacting them myself.

Apparently the 7900GT is 'EOL'. (End Of Line?) So i'm not sure if i'll get a direct replacement. Would be cool if they let me step upto a 7950GT for a few quid. (7950GT = £240. My 7900GT was £250 at the time i got it)

How much would you be willing to let it go for?

Not sure if this is against the ToS or not though talking about this here ...I know that I can sell and buy, thanks to grandfather clauses, but...eh.

id let it go for 15+shipping, i think they still sell for around 30 new. All 8 sinks are there along with the cooler. Ill throw in whats left of my AS5 also if you need it.
