Or there's something wrong with the card... but I can't think of a problem with video cards that would cause your symptoms...

I just got the card, I haven't messed the OC yet. But when I first pulled it out of the packaging, It was doing something that wouldn't let me boot into windows, I had to flash my MOBO and update all my drivers, it was a nightmare, and as soon as I had it working, I was like yes i didn't buy a DOA card, but then it had heating problems.... as for airflow, its not great, but i have 2 intake fans and 3 exhaust fans, I need a new case, its an old one I got from a guy after I built him a PC. It still shouldn't overheat the way it is, I can still send it back untill april, so im going to see if there is anyway i can fix it myself today, and if its still not working, get my money back. Here is my next question though, I have more money lying around, and if it get my money back, should i get a 780 Ti? I can afford it, but I don't know if it would be worth the extra cash, my friend has it, he likes it, but i don't really think it its worth like +$200 for like 10% more performance.

Hm, that does sound weird. Send it back then.

On the 780Ti front, I wouldn't get it. Halo cards are halo cards, so there's a premium for them. Personally wouldn't go beyond the GTX 780 right now, but I'm not even looking right now haha! (I run a GTX 680)

yeah, It will hover around 70 degrees C, when the GPU load is under 10%

For me its hard to say, because I'm wanting to run games at 2560x1440 I figure games are going to run at much lower fps. If i was just doing 1920x1080, i wouldn't buy more then a 770, and that was what i was going to buy, till i looked at it's performance at 1440p, so I dropped the money on the 780. Still those are all just numbers, i was hoping i could get some time with the 780 to see if it was going to perform the way i was hoping. This is the first and last time I buy a Nvidia card from anyone but EVGA.

hey guys, I'm looking at buying an x-star monitor.

Currently I have a Shimian and a Crossover 1440's

is the x-star overclockable?

Currently my 2 are OC'd to about 68hz ( 10% ) and would like to know if the x-star is able to hit 90+

Yes, it is overclockable.

The DVI only X-Star and Qnix both overclock. 95%+ chance of hitting 96Hz. 50% chance of hitting 120Hz. Those values are just off the top of my head. The OP has a chart with statistics.
