It's gonna be hard saying good bye to my GTX 280's. I'm not sure on how I'm gonna move on.
Based on the picture of the back of your card, I can see that you have all 10 chips.

I see, "If you brick the card you're screwed!", but then I see people saying you can go back and re-flash with the stock 465 bios.
A blind flash is possible. It can either be done manually (you just do it from memory, or you write down detailed instructions just in case), or you can use the Autoexec.bat that is recommended. You can either create this yourself, or download one.

Or, if you have another graphics card as well as more than one PCI-E slot, then you just have both cards inserted into the system with the GE as the secondary card, and you use the working card to enable yourself to see what you're doing.

This thing looks so sick in person though. yah
Does it look like the anti-static bag was opened before? I mean, did that little piece of tape look like it was re-attached? I mean, if it wasn't an Open Box item, then the chances of it being used are very small.

Thanks for the info guys. Hopefully ill get the second card next week. I keep forgetting that NCIX is in Canada.

I'm still running benchmarks. I got bored and went for a ride on my moto. About to do GTAIV.


I would like to recommend a list of people/card # being sent back/RMA'd. I know this is only accurate to people on this forum. I'm sure a bunch are being bought by non-members.

no the tape looked fine not that someone couldn't replace the whole bag. there where some smudges on the back of the pcb that looks like someone had thermal grease on there fingers. seems to be okay so far. will test and flash tomorrow.

he's just got me paranoid is all:

My card was someone else's return. That's fine, not good enough for them, but fine by me. Not all cards will be fine by you though.

Point is, Newegg sells returned products as new. I just built an entirely new system, and the only part that was clearly used was my 465 GTX GE.... I've bought other things in the past and not noticed anything 'used-looking', but for this gpu there was no doubt.

peace
Has anyone ever purchased one of these cards as an "open box" item off newegg yet?

Does it look like thermal paste or is it the white residue like what hard water leaves behind when it dries up?

its like a weird faint smudge on the board. could be there from the manufacturer. I tried to wipe it off but its still there. it goes across the set of numbers on the back "N1996" and where it is its discolored. a slight brownish color where the rest of the numbers are white. there are other spots like this on the back around some of the stickers but this is the most notable one. you know that residue that a sticker leaves when you pull it off, sort of like that. I just haven't seen a new board with this on it before.

"edit" I just looked closely at the picture off of newegg and it has the same marks. so I think its okay.

Ya. I'm not sure what that is. The last few PC parts I've bought have started to be covered in it. I guess cleaning it off isn't a priority anymore.

I reformatted my system tonight. Installed the 257.21 drivers like I had before. Installed the new Afterburner 2.0.0.

Now voltage control won't unlock even though I have the box checked.

Do I have to update to the 258.xx drivers to get this to unlock?

You need a different version of afterburner. It seems to have broken voltage control for gtx470's.

Ahh crap.

Well, at least I'm updated to 258.96 drivers now.

I'll roll back to Afterburner 1.6.1.
