Well, I am no longer a member of this club thanks to that overheating piece of crap from Sapphire, but my new MSI X1800XT with Zalman ZF-900 is hitting 700/1600 with just the ATI Catalyst Control Center and staying nice and cool and not even stretched my legs yet. Once I tweak I expect great things. Not as great as when I had my X1900XT, but you get the picture.

Ouch... Sorry to hear about the X1900XT, ffmadcow. What exactly happened? No chance of a replacement, huh?

It was a Sapphire and was artifacting like mad after about a month. I RMA'd it to Newegg and instead of sending a new one, they refunded me. Now this is a very good thing, since I can now buy a new one for $50 less than I paid, but they had such an amazing deal on the MSI X1800XT, I turned around and got that one (the 512MB model) and a Zalman VF900-Cu cooler and saved myself about $150. I figure I will be able to turn around and sell this one for a good price with the DX10 cards are out.

I had probs with my Sapphire X1900XT, as well. I RMAed it for refund, and bought the Powercolor X1900XT. I've had nothing but good things to say about this one, It clocks like mad, the XTX flash went easy, and it has a lifetime warranty.

You're not the first person I've heard say their X1900 Sapphire was poop.

I have a Sapphire X850XT that was giving me problems on Friday, as well, but it seems fine now. I can guarantee that I will not be going back to Sapphire. It will be MSI or Powercolor for me in the future.

I set the voltages up in ati tool since it defaults to 2D voltages so thats not it. Its wierd looks like i cant even use ATI tool anymore
