Heh, thanks for the support
What really pisses me off is MSI.... I have bought countless products off them over the years and every card has been absolutely superb...
When my fan decided to snap I called up MSI and asked them if they could send me a replacement fan, heck, I would even pay shipping... They said no and I would have to ship me entire card over to them... which would cost quite a bit of money....
It's a freaken 80mm fan, I can even give them the model number on it and everything... I just want a fan, I don't want to send them my entire card in for just a fan.
I have since glued up the fan with epoxy and to the day it still has not failed.
NOTE: my temps were bad before this fan thing.
I heard they have a rep in this thread? Perhaps he could clear some things up with me? Such as... why I would load at 88C with stock bios and 90C with ncspec's custom bios...
Looks like I can't ship this card back to newegg either, as the fan has been glued and I am basically ****ed...
I have calculated that shipping over to MSI will cost >$30 and the wait/down time for my system could be counted in months, not weeks... Of course I could ship it with faster shipping.. but that would cost alot more.
I have basically been backed into a corner where my only option is... wait, I have no options, everything requires me to spend money... Even if I do ship it to MSI, I doubt they would do anything about my temps, and if they gave me a replacement card, it would probably be one one of the newer ones that can not unlock...Edited by PhaedraCorruption - 8/17/10 at 2:00pm
