you have to wonder if he had benchmarked his cards, and done burn-in tests, would the problem have surfaced sooner?
Metro 2033 is a pretty bad benchmark. It's extremely CPU dependent, and doesn't seem to be all that well optimized.

He's not comfortable with OC-ing and benchmarking so he never really bothered. He's always tried to stay away from that sort of stuff.

But yeah it looks like he doesn't have a choice this time around - after all, otherwise, you don't get to pick the time your GPU's VRMs blow up. wink.gif I've made that recommendation to him.
