venoms Correct, don't take the heatsink off a BFG you could void the warranty.
I'd make sure the case is getting plenty of air or turn the fan up.

So yes they will rma the card. BFG has always been that way. No questions. Just replace the card.
Good to know, i am in a bit of a hurry to get it back. I have yet to play a game with it and i need my new computer bad, i am on an old computer right now that is slow as snot and it is driving me bats!

Yep, my thoughts exactly. I had all my fans turned on high in my antec 900 case, if that don't get enough air to it, then it can't have enough air! lol
