Sucks that they are still dieing, with no known way to tell if or when it could happen.
True, I just went back through the whole thread and looked at people who included temps.
Usually it was around 80C, that coupled with high volts and running something intensive like Furmark.
But then there were some people who were below 80C but still managed to kill their card.
