SOLUTION?!? i belive folks with gpus like tugger434 are able to use the crappy cooler due to the fact the gpu is under 2.0a at idle .."cool running" chip thus leading to less heat and abuse on the vrms??
would explain why he beat the crap out of my gpu with temps and such
and i have aftermarket cooling
you want a LE with under 2.0A idle properties - "GOLDEN CARD"
