    Nah, the card will be fine. as long as the card isn't going at a 45d or more bend right there your fine.. I had their first gen blocks on my 280 and it did the same thing. Just used foam to prop it up better..

    Ah, just wondering because my old (really old) gtx 260-216+ had a really heavy cooler and the actual gpu "unsocketed" itself and I wasn't able to socket it back onto the pcb. Mind you that was from palit and I had vram issues with that card as well.

    Never had that issue.. I tend to go with evga or asus for Nvidia cards... I had a Palit card once before and it just died... Well, motherboard had a lot to do with that..

    yeh I lean towards gigabyte or asus for nvidia, but I bought a 90 degree rotated motherboard tray chassis to avoid that problem in the future, just in case. I only got the palit because it was the only one instock at that juncture if memory serves me right. But never had an issue with any gigabyte or asus cards so fingers crossed. This leaves a lot to be said about palit.;)

    It's not ram at all. Spent past 2hrs with 2 different kits in ever slot configuration you can think of, actually had the board posting with 1 stick of each kit on the last 2 dimms.

    Yeah, we're cool. I am a little dissappointed but far from mad. I know it's not him intentionally trying f*** me over or anything. Will be getting an rma on it soon. Besides with the few weeks, give me some time to get things worked out away from PC life also.
