Ok sorry I didn't get that many points today guys. As you all know, I use my cell phone for internet so when I am talking on it and a WU gets done it wont get a new one until I get off the phone. I spent most of the day on the phone with Asus about this crap they keep sending me and all they are going to do is set me up with another refurbished board. I asked the guy a hypothetical question that if I keep getting bad boards then this could go on until my warranty is up and he said pretty much. That just isn't right. So now I'm pissed about my board but I have it resolved for now so I bumped my GTX 480 up to a stable 885 core/1770 Shader/ 1925 Memory
and it's still only huffing along at 17596.8 PPD so that leads me to believe that there is something wrong with this card too =(' I'm going to call eVGA but I don't know what I would say... "My graphics card is getting a stable OC at 885 core and my temps are only in the mid 70's, so you need to RMA my card"... they would laugh and hang up on me thinking I was crank calling them.
