I just got another 280 back from EVGA to replace the brick they sent me to replace another dead card. With this card ic an boot into windows which is an improvement, But it overheats. During gameplay/stress testing it begins heating up very similar to my original card, but after several minutes heat output spikes exponentially.

heres an OCCT run because it best illustrates what im talking about. it does this in guild wars, minecraft, MNC and everything else ive tried. (crysis will hit upwards of 98 and BC2 will easily force the card to the 105 throttle point like OCCT does here.) Note how the graph suddenly spikes and keep in mind the fan is a fixed 91% speed


should i send this card back AGAIN?
