Dead 290X help for new

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So my sig rig(still in a 350D atm until Node 804 is released) is on almost all day every day.. I previously had SLi 780's before I sold them and never had a dead GPU/GPU over heat/problems etc at all for 9 months of consistent run time. I recently bought the gigabyte 290x WF edition(no personal OC) 2 weeks ago and last night it randomly crapped out on me so I've sent it back to amazon for a refund. I was actually pleased with the performance even coming from SLi to a single card but am kind of skeptical on my next card..... Is this a common thing with the 290x card if I grab a different mf? should I just wait for the 6GB 780?

if you get another 290X and it dies prematurely again, then i would say it is common to you. just you and not to 290 (X) owners. however, i've been reading about Gigabyte brands dying as of late but i doubt if they were heat related. i had a gigabyte 7950 that had coil whine, so i tend to avoid the brand.

i've had my 290 since launch and still going strong but i play my games with it at stock. i've benched it quite a few times at 1300 core and still can without issues.
