ok, so last night, im setting up a new newegg order for 4 gigs of ram, an X-Qpack for the girlfriend, and a new heatsink for her case. Windows starts artifacting while im putting in order info, by the time i make it to final checkout, my entire monitor is artifacted. i shut down my system, and took a look in my case, the first thing i checked was the zalman heatsink on my radeon, this card during gaming hasnt gone above 55C and the end of the fins were hot enough to burn some lines into my index finger.

sadly, it is not covered by newegg anymore, so i hope gigabyte takes good care of me, their products are generally pretty durable ( even before 'ultra durable' series products ) but i have never had to RMA anything with gigabyte because of this durability.

by the way, this card that died, was my RMA replacement from newegg. my first card made a high pitched noise in 3dmode wich was high enough in pitch and loud enough to seriously give me migraines, and this card, was making these noises more and more towards its final death, wich only took about an hour or a little less.

are you sure it's dead? if it gets hot it'll start to artifact, but if you let it cool it should be back to normal.

Oh, that sounds rubbish

I hope you can RMA it alright. To be honest, unless you have done extensive mods on it, you should be able to RMA it. Is the Zalman stock or after-market?

gigabyte made a card using GDDR3 and the 3870 core capable of running the 775mhz core clock at spec'd voltages ( not that 3850's cant run that high or higher with bios fix and/or required voltage )
