    If you get to high, your shit will either lock up, or get buggy enough to notice
    Just back it down to you find it stable enough for say, ATI Tool artifact scanner, or play your favorite game for a few hours to see if she crash and burns
    If you fry it, no worries mate, eVGA has a lifetime warranty
    Just make sure you register it at eVGA.com
    I already did register (a day or two after purchase)

    I also heard that EVGA is discontinuing their 7900 line, and are upgrading people to the next best thing... So if they're out of 7900GS, I get the 7900GT for free.

    When I get a new GFX card I'm going to OC the living shit out of my 7900 until it dies, and then RMA it for the "next best thing", sell it for brand new on the internet, and make most of my money from my upgrade back.

    The 7950GT was it's replacement Much better card
    They had the 7900GT, GT KO, GT SC, GT SS.
    Then they changed out all the RAM and changed a little of this and that, then gave each card a new sku# and became the "Reloaded" 7900GT with all the sku#'s being changed from the 560 series, to the 580 series
    They are "still" sending me the 560 series
    But I read on some "other' forum that they{eVGA} were exchanging RMAed 7900GT's, with 7900GTX's
    We shall see

    How do they test to see if a card is defective? Can I just send it in for a replacement and get a new one?

    First you have to do a RMA request thru eVGA, they ask you why you want to RMA your card, then they want all your data, which they already have, plus they ask for a CC#, for what? I don't know
    Then you wait a couple of days till you get the RMA "approved" #, download the PDF. then print it out, they give you 14 days to get it out, after that, it's no good
    I don't think they even read what you write or check your card, they have sent me the same card back twice before, with matching serial#'s

    But why would you want to go thru all that bullshit, if there is nothing wrong with your card?

    To get a free upgrade that I can sell, once I get my new card?

    Sounded like a beautiful plan to me...

    If you RMA your card, all you will get is the BX version, which means just your card and the clamshell in a nice, brown box

    When you get your new G80, just box the 7900GS up and call it new

    BTY: If you RMA it, just send the card in it's clamshell, no cables, games, stickers, discs, ect. Because they won't except any of that shit, and they won't be sending you anything else but the card, clamshell and box anyways

    So they wont replace it, just send me my old one in a different box?

    If they do replace it and give me a new one, can't I sell it for a bit under "new" on ebay or something?

    XFX 7900GS 480M @ 575 / 1.63
    XFX 7900GS 525M @ 575 / 1.63

    is what I run both my GS's at in SLI. I have not hit the limit, due to the case and temps I choose to stop at that point for now.
