You know the little chip near the slot bracket? I put thermal paste there. Problem is that the stock heatsink sits a little higher than the chip itself and requires a thermal pad for cooling. I tested it in two computers, crashes at the Windows loading screen and goes into a reboot cycle.

Might be able to save yourself some cash.

Maybe, or save other people some cash.

Have you replaced it with a new thermal pad?

Yup, no go. Forgot to mention artifacts pretty much covering the screen.

:/

Find out what that part is, could be something like a DAC which would let you still run it as a physx card.

Maybe pop it in and try to fold with it.

Shoot, just throw the card in and see if it can fold.

Seems like the easiest solution to me.

Ummm my lcs was uber cheap.

Buy the armor case and you get a good rad, pump, reservoir, and radiator.

The block is pretty crappy but they're pretty cheap.

And you get a free full tower case.
