That is because it is not screwed into my case. When that picture was taken I had reseated the card and was experiencing no problems. I just screwed the card back in but that required I pushed from the rear again. Let us see if I made a solid connection this time.

Similar experience with this myself.

They were @ .988v stock (I thought they were lower), but not for very long. I have been folding pretty much since I got them up and running. Now both are running @ 852 core / 1.038v and highest temps hit 73c! I love these cards!

Was your Bracket bent?

My case has no structural deformities and the card appears to be straight to the naked eye. I seated the card again and played BFBC2 for about an hour with no problems. I will keep an eye on this issue because the card worked fine for 2 days before it started exhibiting artifacting.

I believe a combination of chip creep and poor engineering of the GPU slot bracket(s) are to blame. I hope this does not become a routine problem over the life of this card.

I have the same case you do and it's my favorite one to date. I have bought many times more video cards in the past, and every once in a while, I get one with a bracket that needs a little tweaking. If the card doesn't sit in the slot properly and comfortably, there is always a chance of problems.

I'm glad it's running well for you now. Hopefully that's the end of any problems with it.

I've had similar problems with in-game artifacts in the past, and now some screen flickering. I'm going to reseat my graphics cards also and see if it helps. Glad I found this post =P
