I received my Saphhire X800 Pro VIVO 2 days ago and was thrilled that I found it had the 1.6ns Samsung GDDR3 RAM on both sides (Some rumors of some cards coming with 2.0ns on the back) Anyways, I toss the card in, connect the AUX power connector (Same one that was hooked to my 9800Pro256) power up and I am greeted with beeping and a red flashing screen telling me that "The power connector is not connected" Tried in another PC same thing. Even fed the connecter with it's own power supply and no dice.

Read over on Rage3D that others having same problem, but many have evernmax P.S.'s I dont.

Anyone here see same bug?

I've RMA'd it (can only exchange) and read some going thru THREE cards before getting one that works. Ouch!

well, I dunno - maybe a bad solder job at the connector something like that?

Well, now it *IS* three for me. 2 VIVO's and then now a X800 P.E. that finally showed up after four months of waiting for it. All three same bug, multiple P.C.s (the P.E. even being taken back personally to Best Buy and it tested bad there too).

I am so beyond upset at this point I just hardly can type this.
