Well if Asus was so great the past 10 years, they must be great now I guess, what education did you get dude, no offence?!
I'm well aware of the blackscreen issue, and the fact that a lot of people got these with crappy PSU, and while overclocking for the most part. Due to the immense power draw of these cards. Then they took advantage of the RMA process to get a better clocking card.
I'm NOT trying to discredit you here, but I asked if you checked the 2 most important things that caused this and you did not.
You DID not try a different psu or motherboard - the 2 MAIN AND MOST probable causes. Please tell me what you tested? I'm curious now.
As a matter a fact, I have RMA'd a socket 1366 saberooth just 2 months ago after the 24pin connector melted due to sli and was given new z87 sabertooth as replacement, which I sold. RMA took just over 2 weeks - that is excellent service!!
BTW, I have no idea what you even are getting at mentioning my education?!
